Forces Club

April 2022

Month of the Military Child 

April was the month of the military child. 25% of our children are from forces families. We celebrated this month by holding a special assembly and an afternoon tea party where we invited our forces families to join us for tea and cake. 

We are Forces club

We all have one thing in common

Our mums and dads are in the military

Here are few key facts about the military child:

April is the month of the military child

The dandelion is the flower for the military child

This is because when the seeds blow in the wind they settle anywhere, put their roots down and thrive. Just like us!

Purple is the colour of the military child. It is a mixture of red, green and blue uniforms

 

 

Poem for the military child

Dandelions put down roots almost anywhere and its almost impossible to destroy

It’s an unpretentious plant, yet good looking

It’s a survivor in a broad range of climates

Military children bloom  everywhere the wind carries them

They are hardy and upright

Their roots are strong, cultivated deeply in the culture of the military, planted swiftly and surely

They’re ready to fly in the breeze that takes them to new adventures, new lands and new friends

Military children are well-rounded, culturally aware, tolerant and extremely resilient

They have learnt from an early age that home is where their hearts are.

That a good friend can be found in every corner of the world

They learn that to survive means to adapt.

That when one door closes, one chapter of their life opens up to a new and exciting adventure full of new friends and new experiences.
