Month of the Military Child and Never Such Innocence logos

Tuesday 12th March 2024

To help celebrate Month of the Military Child, Never Such Innocence shares three activities for military children to partake in.

Each April is Month of the Military Child, a time to recognise the important role that military children play in the wider armed forces community.

Never Such Innocence invites individuals, organisations, schools and groups to participate 3 key activities this year:

  1. Enter the Never Such poetry and art competition: This is its 3rd year running, this years theme is: Life As a Dandelion.
    The competition is open to young people 6-18 and begins 1 April and entries must be received by 3 May. Winners announced 27 May and winners will be invited to London in June to receive their certificates and a special day out. Each winner will also receive a £25 Amazon Gift Voucher and a goodie bag! One lucky school will also receive a £250 Book Grant. Cash prizes were very kindly donated by the Armed Forces Education Trust!
  2. Sing Dandelions!
    Our Voices of Armed Forces Children Choir wrote a song entitled ‘Dandelions’, which is the symbol of military children. Sheet music, lyric sheet and backing tracks are available.
  3. Wear PURPLE on 26 April!
    A very simple way to show support for your military children is to wear purple, the colour which symbolises them.
