Saturday 2nd February was the opening of our Centenary Poppy Path Ceremony. Guests included The Worshipful Mayor and The Rose & Thistle Pipe and Drums Band.
The poem Flanders Field was read by our some of our KOH. Our service children were joined by their parents to celebrate the opening.
In preparation for this weekends Centenary Poppy Path event, our Kids Of Heroes the have been busy decorating their bunting ready to go on display.
Throughout December our Kids Of Heroes have been busy with their Christmas craft from making calendars to cards for their friends and family.
We were recently given crosses by the Royal British Legion to decorate and return back, so they could plant them in the Field Of Remembrance on 9th November in Lydiand Park near Royal Wotton Bassett.
Messages of thank you and remembrance were written on the crosses by some of our service children.
Kids of Heroes is a school club for children with parents in the armed forces. The club was named by the current children after discussions with each other. The children meet every other Friday for an hour and take part in craft sessions, talk about emotions and enjoy spending time with their friends who are in the same situation as them.
Thank you to the parents/carers who sent in photos of their children with their serving mum/dad to put up on our Kids of Heroes wall at both North and South Campus. If you haven’t brought a photo in but would still like to, please drop them into either campus.
