AN AFTERNOON of hands-on activitiesis being planned to celebrate the launch of Dawlish's new academic trust on September 29.
The event will take place at Dawlish Community College, Elm Grove Road, and celebrates the launch of the Exe Estuary Academic Co-operative Trust.
The day, which will include sports coaching from Exeter City Football Club, dance and music, has been set up by Dawlish Community College to raise achievement and aspirations of students by working closely with community partners.
Many secondary and primary schools across Devon and Cornwall have formed co-operative trusts in the last few years, joining a nationwide movement towards greater collaborative working, cost saving and the sharing of best practice.
Chairman of EEACT, Ros Mason said: "This is a very exciting next chapter for our young people."
The launch event takes place from 2pm until 4pm.
