Teenagers from eight Cambridgeshire schools took part in an activity day at Sawtry Community College to enhance their self-esteem and personal development.

Thirty-three youngsters took part in problem-solving exercises against the clock under the watchful eye of Hugh Duberly, HM Lord Lieutenant of Cambridgeshire.

The course was funded by the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Outward Bound Association and the Department for Education and Science.

A spokesman for The Outward Bound Association said: "The aim of the course is to provide a wake-up call to youths by exposing them to self-dependency, teamwork ability and leadership activities in a challenging environment. Everyone really enjoyed the course and their problem solving skills were of a particularly high standard."
