"Education is the most powerful weapon we have to change the world"
Nelson Mandela

Congratulations to Peter Harris, headteacher at Farsley Farfield Primary School, and Matthew Browne, who teaches at Austhorpe Primary School, who flew the flag so brilliantly for Leeds winning the regional event and being one of the finalists at The Teaching Awards Ceremony last week. It was fantastic to have these two colleagues representing us at these prestigious awards.

We have hundreds of brilliant schools and colleagues here in Leeds and it's now time to start the process for 2010. I hope that everyone will carefully consider nominating a school, a school team, a teaching assistant, a teacher, a headteacher or a governor to fly the flag for colleagues here in Leeds. To find out more visit Go on, what have you got to lose?
