Charity Little Troopers is inviting primary schools to sign up to a free virtual wellbeing and mindfulness workshop for service children on 7 July.

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 help them cope with some of the challenges that military life can bring.  

Children will be given the opportunity to share their stories, explore their emotions and learn about mindfulness techniques. Afterwards, all the children will take home a goodie bag including a pack of positive affirmation cards.  

Louise Fetigan, founder of Little Troopers, said: “As the school holidays approach, many military families will be coping with deployment or preparing to move home, so now is the ideal time for schools to bring together their service children, give them some tools to help them through and celebrate what it means to be a ‘little trooper’.  

“By running a virtual workshop, our charity can reach as many service children as possible and make them feel part of this special network of military children. The children love knowing that they are doing the session at the same time as thousands of other military children just like them and they will finish the session feeling proud of their identity as a forces’ child.”  

Don’t forget to tell your school to register their interest for the workshop at
