Pipers Corner School in Great Kingshill raised the funds from various events, including Christmas fayres, the Summer ball and an indulgence evening.
Teenage Cancer Trust fundraising representative, Hayley Acton Deboick said “It was such a pleasure to come in and talk to the students. I was so overwhelmed when I was given the cheque that the speech I prepared went completely out the window. Pipers Corner is such an amazing school, it was a really special day, thanks again for all the hard work that has gone into the fundraising this.”
Chairman of the school’s parent and teacher association (PPTA) Pam Collington said: “We are very pleased with the fantastic fundraising from parents, girls, staff and friends of Pipers Corner. On behalf of the PPTA I would like to thank everyone who has supported our events and for their effort and generosity throughout the past year.” SCHOOL children have learned how to do the dance of war.
Pupils at St Mary’s Church of England School in Old Amersham have been doing dance lessons to learn the Haka Maori dance. It is a traditional war dance from New Zealand that is used to frighten off the opposition.
Teaching assistant Dawn Lammin said: “We have been very impressed with our children’s enthusiasm and originality, both individuality and also whilst working in groups.
“So, be afraid if you are playing our school at football in the future.”
