Sidmouth College youngsters enjoyed an exciting day out as part of a legacy project set up by the town’s Lions club.
Some 43 students were selected to go on the reward trip to Haven Banks in Exeter.
The youngsters spent the day working on their team-building skills as they were tasked to build rafts and sail them on the River Exe.
In the afternoon, they took to the water to compete against each other in a Dragon Boat race.
The Lions club launched the Sidmouth College Annual Pledge last year to treat youngsters to an activities day to improve their personal development.

The day at Haven Banks was exciting and students had a great day.”
