Marham Schools Celebrate Red, White & Blue Day
Service children from across Marham helped to raise awareness and celebrate the unique aspects of life as a child in a Service family.
Early in the morning staff and families from Marham Infant School and Stevie from the RAF Marham Community Hub decorated the entrance to RAF Marham with a 1,000 ribbons. The ribbons, made by children and staff at the Infant School represented the approximate number of service children who live in and around RAF Marham.
Infant School Headteacher, Michaela Webb said, ‘The day is special for everyone associated with the Service Children. Whilst the focus today is on Service Children we also are very grateful to and support members of our local community who help us and can also be affected by the continual movement of friends.’
Children and staff from The Rainbow Centre, Marham Infant School and Marham Junior School all worked together to produce two fabulous displays celebrating this special day.
The day was also used to raise funds for the RAF Benevolent Fund, a charity that supports RAF personnel and their families, and children paid a donation to wear red, white and blue to school.
RAF Marham’s Station Commander, Group Captain David Cooper said “Today’s event has been a tremendous opportunity to show support to service families and to help people understand the sometimes unique circumstances that we face.”
