Little Troopers invites all primary schools and their service children to sign-up to our 2022 free virtual wellbeing and mindfulness workshop on 7th July. The workshop can be run at any time on the 7th July to suit your school timetable.
Part of the Little Troopers at School programme, the two-hour workshop will use games, scenarios, drawing and other fun activities to bring military children together and empower them with positive tools to help them cope with some of the challenges that military life can bring, such as having a parent deployed or moving home and school. Through the session, children will be given the opportunity to share their stories, explore their emotions and learn about mindfulness techniques. All the children will take home a goodie bag including a pack of positive affirmation cards.
Last year, more than 3,500 service children attended a similar workshop run by the charity with schools describing the session as providing “much-needed recognition and support for our forces children” and “a safe space [for children] to share and support each other emotionally, whilst eliciting a sense of pride and community spirit.”
This year’s workshop has been made possible thanks to generous grants from ABF The Soldier’s Charity, The Royal Navy & Royal Marines Charity , The Forces Education Trust, and The Grocers Charity.
