Pupils at Deer Park take an active and ambitious approach to charity work and quickly build an understanding that some people need more help than others across the world. As an outward facing international school that is firmly rooted in the local community, we encourage pupils to take every opportunity to take part in events that benefit others and helps increase their understanding of life in Modern Britain, as well as life in a global community.
The School Presidents and School Councils select the charities that we support and these change each term. The school generally supports three charities at a time that always includes a local, national and international Charity.
As a school community, pupils are very keen to donate money to charities through our Vivo rewards system, often raising £100’s a year for good causes. The school also supports national Charity events and holds three non-uniform days a year in support of good causes.
We are currently supporting these charities:
an international NGO working to improve the lives of people with mental illness and epilepsy
tackling stigma, raising awareness and providing vital help for people with mental health challenges
a non-profit making organisation promoting better attitudes to mental and physical health health
