this is on top of six teaching posts lost in recent years as staff who have left have not been replaced. See more on this story in today's Dawlish Gazette page 2.

@Paul - do you? With regard to our voting system: I also believe that our voting system needs to be made a democratic one. The one that we have, given that we have more than two parties to vote for, is far from democratic.
