Pupils from primary schools in Italy, Spain, Greece and Slovenia visited their counterparts at The Beacon Primary School.

They joined a River Exe cruise and learned about the Jurassic Coast during their time in Exmouth.

The visit is part of a foreign exchange programme where pupils from a school in the four countries visit each other's locality and learn about the country's geography and
history.

As part of the visit, the overseas pupils enjoyed a celebration event held at Holy Trinity Church.

They did a Djembe drumming performance, listened to year six Beacon Primary School children playing brass instruments and talked about what they enjoyed about their visit.

They said they enjoyed flying for the first time, experiencing English roast dinners and fish
and chips and learning new languages.

Mayor of Exmouth Steve Gazzard, town crier Roger Bourgein and the school's Diocesan education officer Tatty Wilson also attended the celebration.

Seven pupils and two teachers from The Beacon are set to travel to Greece next month.
