Pupil talent was well to the fore when the Avocet Learning Trust held its second annual awards at the Exmouth Pavilion.

An opportunity for children from the trust’s three primary schools – Bassetts Farm, Exeter Road and Marpool – to celebrate what they have learnt and to showcase their talent, there were musical performances, exhibitions and activities for parents and pupils to enjoy.

After that came the awards ceremony itself, celebrating the 10 co-operative values – including honesty and truthfulness – that the schools share.

“It was really good,” said Rachel Pattison from Marpool Primary School, on behalf of the Avocet Learning Trust. “We hired a 70-seater bus, which drove to and from the schools and brought groups of children down, which meant we had far more pupil engagement during the whole day, rather than just being a celebration.

“The performances were good too, so the shared experiences were of a really high quality.”
