Pupils at Curridge Primary School took part in a range of exciting activities to mark Armed Forces Day on Saturday, June 29.

The school was joined by personnel from Denison Barracks in Hermitage and had a wonderful day building dens, trying on kit and camouflage cream, as well as building assault courses.

Headteacher, Jackie Livermore, said: “Armed Forces Day is a chance to show our support for the men and women who make up this community.

“Our Armed Forces couldn’t do their job without the incredible support of their family and we are proud to welcome the children into our fabulous small school.”
