I received this e-mail from my colleague Sarah Rutty, headteacher at Bankside Primary School...

"Hi Chris, Just to let you know that we have started our transformational year of aiming to be a truly brilliant 21st century school with a Bankside Best 'Bang'. The split site arrangements at Bankside and Fir Tree have begun with a wonderful start; please come and see them for yourself, you would be an honoured guest - at either site, but preferably both.
The team here - children, parents and staff - have really enjoyed our first full day at school. We would like to share with you our gratitude to all the team at Education Leeds: Derek, Janet, Charlotte, Tony and George, for their support in helping us reach this stage towards achieving our wonderful new £9M (the Greenest in the city!) school. I would also like to add a special mention for the excellent Kier Northern team that are such wonderful partners in this project; only seven weeks in but truly fantastic, 'Bankside Best' new friends! Come and see for yourself: Hi-vis jacket and hard hat will be provided!
As ever, Bankside Best Wishes, Sarah"

I am always impressed by Sarah's enthusiasm, energy and passion which shines though her messages. I am looking forward to visiting both sites to see the Bankside magic in action.
