I started the day at 'The Power to Change' Conference at the Garforth Holiday Inn...

The Conference was looking at how we continue to promote and further develop community cohesion in schools across the city. It was a fantastic turn out from schools and included another group of visitors from Sweden. The Conference involved a huge amount of work by colleagues and included presentations by Sir Keith Ajegbo, Mike Berrill, Ceri Morgan HMI, Marcia Hutchinson and Robin Richardson.

The highlight for me was the Little London Community Primary School Choir. When they sang 'Were you there?' it made the hairs stand up on the back of your neck. Everyone should listen to this wonderfully rich and diverse group of children sing; the passion, the energy, the feeling was quite simply astonishing!

Please let me know what you thought if you were there.
