Supporting local schools through performing arts...

Keeping fit and healthy is not just something adults need to think about. With less outdoor space in schools and a general squeeze on PE in the national curriculum, our children are becoming overweight and unfit.

But schools are fighting back with initiatives such as the National School Sports Week 2015, which will take place on 22-26 June. During the week, children will get the opportunity to get more involved in physical activity and try new things that could have a hugely positive influence on their lives.

In the thousands of schools that participate across the UK, children will get to experience a range of healthy activities and sports, exposing them to clubs outside of school and encourage a healthy lifestyle.

children's clubs in Yeovil

Yeovil’s search for a star

Move over Simon Cowell and Britain’s Got Talent, the only talent contest worth entering is Razz’s Got Talent, and what’s more there will be no Mr. Nasty, just a fantastic prize of a scholarship to attend Razzamataz Yeovil free of charge for a whole year.

Supporting local talent and giving back to the community to help young people with their performing arts training is high on the agenda for the theatre school, which is backed by Dragons’ Den’s Duncan Bannatyne.

Yeovil theatre school supports children’s health initiatives

Child Health Day is a special day in America dedicated to raising awareness of the importance of our children’s health. Every year on the first Monday in October, schools across the US unite to get the word out about how to protect and develop children’s health.

In the UK, child obesity levels are growing with The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) recommending more physical activities for both adults and children.

Last month, health leaders called for an emergency taskforce to be set up to tackle childhood obesity in England and in an open letter to the chief medical officer for England, Prof Dame Sally Davies, said: "an entire generation is being destroyed by a diet of junk food and sugary drinks".
