I started the day at the launch event for the Leeds Bi-Centenary Transformation Project...

The project, supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund, the Joseph Rowntree Foundation and Education Leeds, aimed to highlight African achievements, liberation and aspiration in commemoration of the British Parliamentary Abolition Act 1807. The product of this unique initiative written, developed and compiled by Carl Hylton, Saluka Saul ans Michelle Wittleton, is a fantastic curriculum teaching pack containing 29 lesson plans and 'Trading Roots' a wonderful creative writing resource. Every school in Leeds will receive the materials later this term.

I would like to thank the curriculum development team, the education steering group and everyone else involved and supporting this fantastic project.
