The popular Little Troopers at School virtual workshop will be taking place in Wales on Wednesday 10thNovember 2021. All primary schools in the country, with children who have a parent serving in the Armed Forces, are invited to join in online for this free event.
The workshop is being delivered as part of the Supporting Service Children in Education (SSCE) Cymru programme run by the Welsh Local Government Association.
template, the 2-hour workshop will include storytelling, imaginative play, movement and drama. The activities will help the children explore the unique experiences they share as members of the British Armed Forces community and give them tools to navigate some of the challenges they might face either now or in the future.
Schools who sign up for the workshop will be sent a pack of printable activity sheets, a facilitation guide, stickers and wildflower seeds to give out to the children.
Louise, founder of the charity said, “I am so excited about the Wales Little Troopers at School workshop, as it is just one of a number of initiatives that we are delivering as part of our nationwide partnership with the Welsh Local Government Association. Through the Supporting Service Children in Education (SSCE) Cymru programme we have also sent every primary school in Wales a set of bilingual Little Troopers story books and the programme has 100 copies of our Military Child Wellbeing Course to distribute. This is what I would love to see replicated across the UK to ensure every service child has access to the information and support they need at school.”
All primary schools in Wales have now been sent the details about the workshop, but if your school has missed this and they would like more information or to book onto the workshop, then please visit the SSCE Cymru website.
Louise adds, “The workshop is lots of fun and with everyone joining online at the same moment it helps the little troopers to feel part of a much bigger community, helping them to realise that they are not alone.”
