Villagers, friends of the church, Teachers and parents of the school joined together to put on a magnificent May Fayre. The weather was glorious and the turnout was brilliant. From the chocolate tombola, cake decorating, lucky ducks, horse riding, face painting, coconut shy, plate smashing to the spectacular dog show, there was lots of activities to do and prizes to win. Adults and children were amused and had a fun day out.
Miss Horncastle had fun on the Bucking Bronco. She managed to raise £100 in funds dressing up as an indian.

We would like to advise you about an online educational game "HANDS ONLY CPR". The game and publishing info are available at: www.cprgame.co.uk
Each year millions of people worldwide suffer from sudden cardiac arrest. Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and the use of Automatic External Defibrillation (AED) could significantly decrease the number of deaths from sudden cardiac arrest. CPR technics are very simple to learn, yet not too many people knows how to apply it due to lack of training.
It is free to use for both commercial and non-commercial purposes. The game has already been published on hundreds of webpages, including some local european resuscitation councils and a large number of schools and public institutions.

Queenswood School - Christmas Play 2008
Ponsbourne St Mary's School visits Queenswood
Over 100 parents from Ponsbourne St. Mary's School came to see their children perform Snow White in the Clarissa Farr Theatre at Queenswood on Thursday December 11th. They were treated to a wonderful evening with star performances from the Mirror who loved to break dance; the Queen who pulled off some great dancing moves of his own; and the seven jockeys who had serious gambling issues! Snow White herself gave a beautiful performance, with some lovely dance steps and showed great acting potential.
Queenswood was delighted to open up its theatre to Ponsbourne St. Mary's after it was discovered that the original venue was not available. It was exciting to see the children use the stage, lighting and sound facilities to highlight their own talents and strengths. Well done!!!
Thank you for the use of your theatre Queenswood School!
