I moved on to the Regional Social Enterprise Showcase and Celebration Event at the Holiday Inn, Garforth...

I had been invited to the event by my colleague Parminder Smedley, Regional Social Enterprise Advisor. Sadly I had missed the Leeds Showcase and Celebration Event last week but I am really pleased that I managed to make this one. There were twelve schools at the event from across the Yorkshire and the Humber region and to be honest I wish all the schools were here in Leeds or at least all the young people who were a credit to their schools and some of the young entrepreneurs of the future. I was really impressed by the Castle Hill School and their Green Brick Company.

We were brilliantly represented by young people from Bruntcliffe High School, Intake High School Arts College and John Smeaton Community College. Bruntcliffe stole the show for me winning Best Concept, Best Stand, Best Business Plan and Runners up in Best Marketing and Best Social Enterprise. Their students were a real credit to Linda Johnson, headteacher, and her colleagues and did us all proud!

If you are going to report on something at least do it correctly and represent all the great effort of all the schools. You missed some very important details in your blog and people reading it will get the wrong impression of what really happened there. Sorry I hope all your reporting is not like this.

Hi Anonymous,
The blog is a quick and easy way of capturing what is going on.
Unless you tell me how I have misled people or what I need to add I'll never know. Please let me know.
