I received this e-mail from my colleague Mike Woods, Headteacher at Corpus Christi Catholic College...

"Hi Chris, Just a bit of positive feedback despite the severe weather. We had our dress rehearsal for Bugsy Malone on Monday 10am with an invited audience from our local Primary Schools. All the cast of 47 made it, as did our Primary Schools; two of whom (St Theresa's and Our Lady's had to bus pupils in). All went great. School too functioned well although we had to close early and cancel the first night's perfomance. On Tuesday we had nearly 550 pupils in and ran a full curriculum and the new first night of Bugsy Malone played to a full house. I never cease to be amazed at the dedication of teachers and support staff. They worked brilliantly throught the severe weather and take Bugsy Malone for instance, there was a production team of 49 plus Thomas Danby Students doing a fantastic job with hair and our PTFA. Curriculum disruption was an absolute minimum (only the Monday first performance with Primary Schools). Everything being done X-curricular including the last two Sundays! So great things are happening on your patch. Best wishes, Mike."

It's great to hear about some of the amazing things colleagues are doing across Leeds despite the weather!
