School staff get on the ball
STAFF members at a Chesham school went head-to-head in a netball match to raise money for charity.
Chesham Grammar School held a staff netball match on Friday lunchtime as part of its contribution to Sport Relief.
Thirteen members of teaching and support staff volunteered to take part, with two sixth formers as umpires.
Hundreds of pupils went out to watch the staff getting their exercise and were treated to a spectacle of hidden talent with a game of end-to end, fast and furious attacks.
Nobody really took too much notice of the score since the whole idea was to have fun and raise money for Sport Relief.
Sixth formers had their buckets at the ready and collected any loose change among the spectators.
Finance assistant Sam Nisco, who took part in the staff netball match, said: “We really enjoyed the netball match and it was a good opportunity to show the pupils that there is another side to the staff!”
The school also held a Sport Relief Mile on the Thursday, when pupils and four members of staff ran a mile around the school’s sports’ fields and again spectators emptied their pockets of loose change into collection buckets. The school, in White Hill, raised £1,300 in total thanks to the one mile run and the staff netball match.
