It was a good week for those who enjoy messing about on the water in Devon last week. A new BSc (Hons) Sports Sciences course is being offered by Plymouth University in September. The course will cover sports science (physiology, biomechanics and psychology), a look at human interaction with the environment and surfing, scuba diving, wind surfing, wakeboarding, dinghy sailing, keelboat sailing, sea kayaking and lifeguarding
Sartorial elegance at school took a beating. A consultation over the wearing of uniform at King Edward VI Community College (KEVICC), Totnes a year after assurances that the school’s focus ‘should be on the important issues of teaching and learning’ has been blamed on a Satisfactory Ofsted report.
And the Teignbridge Core Strategy has had a bit of a rough ride. It’s been rejected by Teignmouth, but major charity in Newton Abbot, Dame Hannah’s Trust, which took over the former agricultural college at Seale Hayne says it would consider leaving the area if the Core Strategy was to go through.
Over the border in Cornwall it was a lot of bad news for an auction house in Bude, which was forced to withdraw the sale of a Nazi war surgeon’s toolkit, which has been used in concentration camps, after receiving a number of threats. The tools, which belonged to war criminal Anton Burger were being sold by an anonymous private vendor.
