community and charity

At Dersingham we believe in the importance of charity and of teaching our children to care for others.  We teach and encourage our children to be responsible British citizens with mutual respect for all.  We regularly participate in national charity days and donate to charities as much as possible.  So far this school year we have donated over £800 to charities, plus collected and distributed care packages for Christmas.

We also encourage our children to participate in events in our local community.  This has included attending Remembrance Day memorial services on behalf of the school, paying our respects at the site of the Grenfell Tower inferno, singing Christmas carols for the elderly at a nearby retirement home, singing as part of the Commonwealth Choir and visiting the Houses of Parliament.  Our children are very busy little bees!

Save the children christmas jumper day

On Friday 15th December 2017, we wore our Christmas jumpers to raise money for Save The Children.

We raised £___ in total.  Mrs Akinfie definitely won the 'Best Effort' award for her numerous Christmas decorations!

children in need

On Friday 17th November 2017, we raised £282.82 for Children in Need.  Many thanks to our very generous parents for adding coins to our buckets, just one day after our Go Green day!  

Our school staff wore their pyjamas to school for the day - much to the children's delight!  Lando's Superman dressing gown was a particular highlight!

nspcc - go green

On Thursday 16th November 2017, we held a fundraising day in aid of the NSPCC.  We had visitors from the NSPCC into school on the day to lead workshops on keeping ourselves safe.  The children and staff all wore Green and donated £1 to the NSPCC.  In total we raised £280.14.  Thank you to all who donated.

macmillan coffee morning

On 29th September 2017, we held a coffee morning here at Dersingham in aid of Macmillan Cancer charity.  Staff donated cakes and biscuits for parents to enjoy (for a £1 entry fee) and we even held our very own Great Dersingham Bake Off competition!  The standard was very high but Emma G's chocolate concoction was the ultimate winner.  

We raised a total of £170.58 for MacMillan

Grenfell tower

Our School Council members attended the site of the Grenfell Tower infreno to lay flowers and pay their respects, on behalf of us all at Dersingham.  As a school we were deeply moved by the tragedy and started a collection of essentials to donate to the families affected by the fire.  The children visited a memorial site and spent some time reading the messages left by others, as well as adding their own messages of hope.
