At Ditcheat we feel it is very important to teach our children to appreciate what they have. Each year we consider how we can give a little back to the local community and further afield.
In October 2020, we raised £135 for Young Minds on Hello Yellow day. The children not only came to school wearing yellow but they also spent time learning about how to keep a healthy mind as well as a healthy body.
This year’s Poppy appeal raised £28.35
At our Harvest Festival this year, our families donated to the Somer Valley Foodbank.
We have also taken part in Race For Life where the children ran with their families and raised over £1300 which we were delighted about.
We will be taking part in this year’s Children in Need and regularly encourage children to take the initiative to raise money for causes that are important to them. In addition to this, our school council have been tasked to identify a charity overseas that we can adopt as our school charity for the year.
