Unique 'friendship trains' unveiled to primary schools

Brightly coloured wooden children's trains are being unveiled today to Devon primary school pupils.

It's part of an anti-bullying project and they've helped design the trains - but haven't seen the finished project.

Schools involved include Teign School, Thurlestone, West Alvington, Warberry and Ellacombe .

In the past pupils from South Devon College have created specially designed wooden benches and this year they're creating 'friendship trains'.

The trains are seen as a 'safe areas for students who may feel isolated or upset through bullying, with teachers then spotting them with ease'.

After the reveal, the bright and eye-catching trains will be used as new playing apparatus in each of the schools playgrounds.

The wooden train structures have been created from the efforts of South Devon College Level 1 and 2 Construction students.

The timber used for the project has been supplied by Inter-Line Building Supplies South West, with the paint supplied by Zinsser.

The schools involved include;

  • Teign School,
  • All Saints Marsh C of E Primary,
  • Thurlestone All Saints Church of England Primary,
  • West Alvington Primary,
  • Charleton Church of England Primary,
  • Warberry Church of England Academy,
  • Ellacombe Academy,
  • Dunsford Community Primary School
