I went on to the Retiring Headteachers Celebration at Haley's Hotel in Headingley...

Twelve colleagues managed to get there and together they had amassed 435 years of teaching experience and 165 years of headship experience. These are some amazingly talented colleagues who have run fantastic schools making an incredible difference in some of the most interesting parts of Leeds...
  • Charles Ashby from Scholes Elmete Primary School;
  • Liz Campbell from Brudenell Primary School;
  • Yvonne Davidson from Otley Ashfield Primary School;
  • Steve Fisher from Parklands Primary School;
  • Nigel Hewitt from Rothwell Victoria Junior School;
  • Lesley Jackson from Wykebeck Primary School;
  • Martin Kromer from Christ the King RC Primary School;
  • Gloria Stone from Thorner Primary School;
  • Bobbie Syrett from Beeston Primary School;
  • Rhoda Wallace from Whinmoor St Paul's CE Primary School.

I am particularly grateful to my colleagues Helen Ford and Iram Mir who organised and managed the event. It was a wonderful interlude where we recognised the hugely significant contribution these colleagues had made to children and young people, to families, to their learning teams and to their communities. Personally, I will miss them all!
