This is one of the new things you may see if you visit Kings Copse, a VI pupil practicing using her 'hoople' around school. A Hoople is used as a pre-long cane tool, teaching the pupil correct body posture as well as developing an appropriate grip. 
For this pupil it is also providing increased independence; working with her mobility instructor and her VI LSA on routes around school has meant that she is able to make her own way to the dinner hall or the toilet.
