Local school children gear up for another fun day at Oceanfest 2018
Posted on: 11 June 2018
A day of fun at the beach awaits North Devon school children this week, as Goldcoast Oceanfest returns to Croyde.
Each year, local children across the district are invited to a day of exciting beach activities in Croyde, funded by North Devon Council and coordinated by PETROC in partnership with GoldCoast Oceanfest.
Aimed at Year 6 pupils in North Devon, activities include the coveted Beach Flags competition, mass participation Zumba on the main stage and the code breaker challenge to test physical and mental strength. Schools will also have time to tour the various tents and activities in the main arena. About 1,100 children are set to take part in the event this year, which takes place on Friday 15 June.
Executive Member for Health and Wellbeing, Councillor Brian Moores, says: “I’m really pleased we’re able to fund the education day again this year, with the support of PETROC and the Goldcoast Oceanfest team. This event is all about getting our young people out in the fresh air for a fun and educational day outdoors, enjoying our wonderful natural environment. I’ve heard it’s a highlight of the summer term and a rite of passage for Year 6 children as they enjoy their final term of primary school.”
