37 students and 5 staff recently headed to Coniston for a weekend at Thurston Outdoor Education Centre.

The weather in the run-up to the weekend had been miserable, but we were treated to glorious sunshine and warm temperatures.

Upon arrival, the first task was to cook our evening meal of sausages, burgers and chicken on a barbeque, then it was time for a (no so) early night in order to be full of energy for a day packed full of activities on Saturday.

The students were divided into 4 groups and over the course of the weekend each group took part in paddle boarding, kayaking, canoeing and ghyll scrambling. Evening activities consisted of team games and jumping off the jetty into the lake.

It was a very tired group that arrived back to school on Sunday evening!
