Year 10 Castlerigg Manor Retreat

ImageOn May 2nd 2006, a group of Year 10 students went to Castlerigg Manor on our annual retreat.  The purpose of the visit was to help them to explore their relationship with God and the world around them.

Reflective time spent in the chapel, both praying quietly and singing loudly, was at the heart of this special visit.

Over the 4 day visit the students took part in a variety of activities, including fell-walking in glorious sunshine, team-building exercises and even a limbo competition.  Other highlights included a lovely barbeque and of course Mr. Conway's song and dance routine!

The NHS and You

ImageOn the morning of Friday 12th May 2006, the NHS visited St. Mary's to present a drama entitled 'The NHS and You'.  The aim of the morning was to raise awareness of the many varied career opportunities within the NHS organisation.  Health and Social Care students from Year 10 and prospective students from Year 9 watched the fun and thought-provoking show, which used a mix of highly entertaining and comical situations with more hard hitting scenes to portray the various aspects of life within the NHS.
