Eco-friendly youngsters have been praised for their ideas on how to improve the environment.
Pupils from Marpool Primary School presented their suggestions in a 'Dragon's Den' style format to a panel made up of the town mayor, councillor Steve Gazzard, Cllr Tony Woodward and governor Malcolm Dobbins.
The children told the panel about their idea to put more recycling bins in the town's parks.
Teacher Ian Harvey said: "Town mayor Steve Gazzard was really impressed with the children's ideas and how well they presented them."
The event was part of the school's 'We Love Our Planet' week which also featured workshops by Exmouth Repair Café and Exmouth Cycles.
