YOUNGSTERS from four Felixstowe schools will this week come together for a special day of activities focussing on the damage man is causing to the planet.

Deben High School, a specialist college for the visual and performing arts, has been collaborating with four of its feeder primary schools on the project - Colneis Junior, Grange Primary, Kingsfleet Primary and Langer Primary.

Students from the schools' gifted and talented sets are taking part in the multi-arts project, called ArtsFour, the fourth similar scheme the high school has run.

The scheme has featured a series of workshops at the schools, led by visiting artists in art, dance, drama and music, this term and tomorrow they will come together for a special day at the school in Garrison Lane to celebrate the project and show off all their work and newly-learned skills.

The theme is “The Environment-and the damage that man is inflicting upon it”.

It was inspired by artist Fran Crowe's work and her exhibition, Walking to Save Some Sea, held at Landguard Fort this year, providing a common link throughout all the work.
