Lympstone pupils go sailing

YOUNGSTERS from Lympstone Primary School swapped a warm class room environment for sailing boats in choppy seas.

Pupils at the school were treated to lessons at Sail Exmouth last week where they were shown how to operate the boats.

Pupils at the school have been treated for lessons at Sail Exmouth for the past six weeks, learning how to master the boats and deal with variations in the waves

The club, which sails in the mouth of the River Exe, offers sailing tuition for people of all ages.

Tony Priest, head teacher at Lympstone Primary School, said: “The children had a great time.”

Key stage two pupils, meanwhile, enjoyed a day out in Bristol earlier last term.

The school has had a busy start to the new academic year with youngsters, as always, also playing a key role in Lympstone Harvest Festival events.
