Budleigh Salterton support a children's trip to London

Budleigh Salterton support a children's trip to London

11 Apr 2024

In 2023, TAS Budleigh Salterton gave £2,000 to St Peter’s CofE Primary School, Budleigh Salterton to support an art related project including a visit to London. The money provided went towards ensuring that 11 of the pupils could go on the visit either at a free place or a subsidised rate. At £320 per pupil, these children would not have been able to have the experience. The trip meant that pupils were exposed to culture and art that they would not normally have seen.

Although a planned visit to the V&A museum to study the art was changed to enable a visit to 10 Downing Street, they looked at propaganda art in the Imperial War Museum and saw the artwork inside the Houses of Parliament.  

In all, they went on a Thames Clipper, visited Greenwich Observatory, the Science Museum, the Imperial War Museum, the Houses of Parliament, Downing Street, Regents Park, and a dance workshop and saw The Lion King.  They went on the Tube on two occasions, did walking tour of all the main sites in London as well as theatreland, Chinatown and Soho.

The Head teacher said that it was an amazing experience and one of the most memorable these children will ever have.
