I received this e-mail from my colleague Helen Plimmer our Adviser for PE, after the Learning Outside the Classroom Conference...

"Hello Chris, Just a quick note to let you know we had a very successful Learning Outside the Classroom conference at Leeds Met on Wednesday. The event was organised in partnership with Leeds City College and even better that they sponsored it! We had about 170 delegates mainly primary, secondary and FE staff and a few from outside the authority. 17 different local agencies promoted their organisations at the market place. We had 2 excellent key note speakers and there were 3 really top presentations from local schools; Peter Harris from Farsley Fairfield Primary School, Graeme Jones from Castleton Primary School and Vicky Shaw from Crawshaw High School. All of them brought young people to help with their presentations and they were excellent. Phil Jackson was MC for the day and was great, setting a lovely relaxed atmosphere for the event. And the admin team Linda Gibson et al were also priceless. Have a great weekend. Regards Helen."

It is great to hear about things like this and the brilliant contributions colleagues in schools and Education Leeds made. It was another opportunity to showcase the best of Leeds. Congratulations to Helen, Peter, Graeme, Vicky, Phil, Linda and everyone involved in making the conference such a great success.
