Thurston Outdoor Activity Centre is located on the shores of Lake Coniston in the Lake District and is a superb location to participate in outdoor and adventurous activities. St Mary’s has a long and proud link with Thurston, and has been taking students to the centre for over fifteen years. In October, thirty-five students from years 8 and 9 enjoyed one week of outdoor pursuits in some fantastic weather conditions. The students took part in activities such as mountain-biking, ghyll-scrambling, hillwalking, rock climbing, kayaking, canoeing and abseiling. Each evening students faced further challenges during evening activities which included a night walk and orienteering using torches. All the students involved had a fantastic time and thoroughly stepped up to the challenges they faced throughout the week.

Well done to all students involved.
