 Students gave talks in a mocked-up classroom and ran a food tasting event at the R Devonport community event at Granby Green.

R Devonport is a celebration of equality and diversity in Devonport with music and street dancing, fantastic foreign food on offer, and stalls and stands set up by local residents and partner organisations.

It's the second year the gathering - organised by Plymouth Community Homes - has been staged after proving extremely popular last year.

The College's Modern Britain Council and Culture Club attended the community event on 1 July and worked with Mount Wise and Marlborough primary schools to deliver lessons to pupils from Year 2 and Year 6.

Modern Britain is a new curriculum subject introduced at Key Stage 3 for students to understand British values in today's society.

"The primary schools took part in Diversity and Mutual Respect lessons looking at how we work together in the community and with each other, " explained Mrs Burn, one of the Modern Britain co-ordinators at the College.

"The primary schools had a chance to discuss diversity in the community and learn more about respecting the range of religions and beliefs they will encounter  in their schools and where they live."

The Modern Britain Council members also had a question and answer session with the pupils where they received a goody bag for taking part.

"Students and staff from the College were delighted with the event and the way the primary school pupils took part with lots of energy and enthusiasm," said Mrs Burn.

"Five students and two members of staff organised the Modern Britain mock up classroom which went down really well with the general community who also listened to the 20-minute sessions.

"It was a wonderful afternoon celebrating British values with the community of Devonport, young and old," she added.

 "It was very successful afternoon," said Mrs Miller, the College's welfare director, who helped organise the event.

"Our EAL volunteers also took part and provided food tasting.

"It is important that we are involved in these type of projects and work with other partners in housing, the youth service and police in providing a more inclusive community."
