Head's Welcome

Head of College Welcome

Welcome to Dawlish College.

It is an absolute privilege to have been invited to take on the role of Head Of College at Dawlish College; especially at such a positive time as it flourishes within the Formal Management Partnership with Newton Abbot College. Our GCSE results this year have been excellent with students out-performing the national average in many subjects and English and maths passes being the highest in the area.

Dawlish College is a vibrant and exciting place to be, where we have the highest expectations of staff and students alike and seek to provide challenge at every available opportunity. As a small school, we have a very proud record of holistic support, care and individual attention: the happiness and well-being of our students is of paramount importance and is a vital foundation for their growth and development. Our college has an atmosphere of creativity and positivity that is generated by the provision of excellent opportunities for every individual thereby maximising the outcomes and improving the life chances of the young people in our care.

As a parent myself, I understand that you want your child to be inspired, supported and challenged to be the best version of themselves within an environment that knows them and values them as an individual. Thank you for entrusting me with the care and education of your child, present or future, and I look forward to unlocking their ambitions as I get to know them and work closely with you.

Dawlish Youth Soup

First-ever Dawlish SOUP event for young people’s projects is happening Thursday 21st March, 6 pm, The Beach Bar, Piermont Place, Dawlish

 This is a fantastic and easy way to raise some funds for a project or ideas that benefit young people in Dawlish.

Starting in Detroit in 2010, and now run all over the UK, SOUP is a way to find out about, support, and fund local community projects.

The idea is simple:

Local people come together, give a donation for a bowl of soup and two voting tokens, and listen to four local individuals or small groups who have an idea to benefit young people in local community pitch their project idea. This can be young people themselves or organisations who wish to do project.

Pitchers each have the floor for up to five minutes and must rely on their passion, creativity and speaking abilities to win over the audience – no giveaways or PowerPoint.

With the presentations over, soup is served. Now you will have time to think, chat with others, and mull over the ideas before choosing your favourite.

The winning pitches each get to take home between them the money taken at the door and their share of a donation from local benefactors. They get to use it to fund their plans, with the promise they will come back to report on their progress at the next SOUP event.

Those wishing to pitch should write a paragraph about their idea/project and send it to anja@teigncvs.org.uk by 7th March 2019. Please include: the name of the project; contact details (including an email address); a brief project summary including how you will spend the money and the desired outcomes and any practical or technical help you hope to get from your community. If you are selected to pitch, we will let you know by 14th March.

Remember to ask your friends and supporters to book their places to help increase your votes and chances of success!

Please forward this info as widely as possible; we are really keen to get small groups and individuals with new community ideas on board and help them to get their project off the ground. Groups do not need to have a constitution.

Book a place now and support YOUR local project.

Reserve your place at tcvs.eventbrite.co.uk (so we can make enough soup!)
