School staff get on the ball

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SPORT RELIEF 2016 -

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.
