Sixth form gets the teachers dancing

TEACHERS took to the dance floor but it was strictly students who earned plaudits for a school’s charity week.

Tring School PE teacher and head of sixth form Heather Golla said: “I was overwhelmed with the student leadership and how much they could achieve.

“It was their ideas and they took the project forward and it was incredible how much money they raised.”

Events across last week included activities organised by sixth-formers for each house and were attended by the entire school.

They featured Strictly Come Dancing, Tring’s Got Talent and games and sports days, before the week finished with a fun day.

In total, £1,170 was raised for Iain Rennie Hospice at Home and the Make-A-Wish Foundation in the school’s third charity week, the highest so far.

Mrs Golla gave special praise to head boy Max Baiden, deputy Chris Dawson, head girl Jenni Cannon, deputy Jess Hudson, sports captain Tasha Humphris and charity captain Pete Tollington.

She said: “It proves we are equipping them with more than just qualifications.

“They will have a skill set they can use in the work place and in adulthood.”
