I finished the day with Yasuo Ichihara, headteacher of Ritsumeikan Senior High School in Kyoto, Japan...

Mr Ichihara and ten of his students are visiting Horsforth School which is partnered with Ritsumeikan. They are staying for two weeks and Mr Ichihara and Jenny Hill from our International Relations team in the Council met me to talk about Education Leeds and education in Leeds. Mr Ichihara is apparently one of the most respected science educators in Japan but he was really impressed by the work at Horsforth on rocket science and their use of interactive whiteboards which are not as widely used in Japan.
