Exmouth Community College has won £500 to spend on books for its library as part of a national competition.

The college was highly commended for its participation in the first-ever World Book Day Award.

As part of the prize, eight students who participated will travel to Birmingham to pick out some new books for the library.

The title of the competition was “Why We Can’t Live Without Books” and the students contributed to a film that Mr John Panton filmed and edited.

Max Damsell and Toby Hill each made their own film that was incorporated into the entry.

Jasmine Saryazdi and Larene Moroy spent hours producing a magazine, making props and writing a script.

Alex Stace did a PowerPoint presentation, while Tom Nicholas and Michael Alford each wrote a poem.

They all performed in the “Twenty Reasons Why” section of the college’s video.
