I spent a brilliant lunchtime and the early part of the afternoon with some amazing children from Moortown Primary School and Stanningley Primary School as part of our '11 Million Takeover' activities...

Young people often amaze me and this session was no different; their confidence, passion, engagement and energy was wonderful to see and reflected the work our colleagues working in these two schools are doing... they are very obviously doing a brilliant job.

We talked about Education Leeds, education in Leeds, the environment and sustainability, school food and drink and school buildings. We also discussed their apirations an waht they wanted to be when they left school, university or college... we had lawyers, judges, doctors, surgeons, teachers and police officers of the future. It was great to spend some time with such wonderful young people.

I hope to have some pictures soon.
