Little Troopers club is a place where military children are invited to join other military children to have lunch, play games, and celebrate all things forces.
The aim of the club is to ensure all service children at Bratton Primary feel supported and have the opportunity to share their experiences in a safe place, over lunch with like-minded friends.
Mrs Hawke, who runs the club, is a military wife and is able to help our Little Troopers explain to others the unique challenges and opportunities that go hand in hand with being part of a military family. Due to this experience, Mrs Hawke is in the perfect position to help and support our Little Troopers during times of family deployment, military events and other things specific to forces families.
Where ever possible, we ask our Little Troopers to get involved in things around the school, for example engaging in the school Remembrance Service and raising money for The Royal British Legion’s Poppy Appeal. By doing this, we hope to provide an insight into what it is like to be a service child by bridging the gaps between pupils and our Little Troopers.
When starting the school, every Little Trooper is personally invited by letter and is given given his or her own Little Troopers badge in assembly so they be identified and celebrated throughout the school. If you spot one of our Little Troopers, be sure to ask them about their special club!
