WW1 competition success for Budleigh pupils

Local schools have responded enthusiastically to projects commemorating the 1914-18 conflict. One of them did especially well in a special competition sponsored by the Chairman of East Devon District Council to mark the centenary. 

Pupils at St Peter’s Primary School in Budleigh Salterton were asked by their teachers to choose a World War One assignment based on links to the local area. Some chose to research a name from a local war memorial or to write about the local impact of the conflict.

This is what nine-year-old Sophia Rehbock did:

 At EDDC’s Annual Council Meeting on 14 May 2014, Council Chairman Graham Godbeer awarded certificates to the winning schools. Sophia’s school came first in the Primary School category.

Many of Fairlynch’s volunteers work all-year round even when Fairlynch is closed. They are always ready to investigate the archives and offer information, especially to young people with school projects like Sophia. 

Visit ‘The Great War at Fairlynch’ exhibition at Budleigh Salterton’s very special museum! Reviews include: “Wonderful display on WW1, informative, bright and relevant. Well done!!!”
