Marham Schools Celebrate Red, White & Blue Day
Nearly 200 children from Marham Infant School along with pupils of Marham Junior School and the Rainbow Centre celebrated Red, White and Blue Day on Friday 11th October.
Red, White and Blue Day is a special day that raises awareness and celebrates the unique aspects of life as a child in a service family.
The children decorated a three metre long cardboard replica of a Tornado jet aircraft with pictures of their families which they had drawn. Marham Infant School Governor Stacy Gray was tasked with making the idea come to life which he successfully did with support from his colleagues at RAF Marham. Four year old Ted Watling, from Marham Infant School commented that, “My Daddy works by the big aeroplane and it was really good to decorate one.” This celebration coincided with the last day of the outgoing Station Commander Air Commodore David Cooper. The children gave three resounding cheers for the Station Commander and presented him with cards and banners. Head Teacher Michaela Webb said, “We are extremely proud of all our children from both serving and non-serving families. Whilst the focus of today is on children from service families we are also very grateful to and support members of our local community who can also be affected by the continual movement of friends. I would also like to thank the Station Commander for his support and wish him good luck for the future.”
