I met today with colleagues from Hangzhou in China...

Jo Hall and Stella Li from the International Relations team and three interpreters accompanied the Vice-Inspector of Hangzhou Education Bureau, two headteachers, a deputy headteacher and a head of English Teaching and Research. The school based colleagues are partnered with Bramley and Talbot Primary Schools and Brigshaw and Pudsey Grangefield High Schools who they had visited this morning. They are going to John Smeaton Community College tomorrow before attending a Civic Celebration tomorrow evening where we will be celebrating our international schools with colleagues from the DCSF and the British Council.

The colleagues from Hangzhou were really impressed with their school visits and from what they had learnt about Education Leeds and told me that their teachers and students would really benefit from the links and from visiting schools here in Leeds.
