I returned to the Civic Hall this afternoon for the 2009-2010 Stan Kenyon School Challenge Award Ceremony...

The Stan Kenyon School Challenge is longest running Leeds City Council corporate social responsibility project. These are the sixteenth annual awards which were inspired by a former Director of Planning, Stan Kenyon, who retired in 1995 but is still active in encouraging young people to get to grips with local environmental issues and to come up with ways of making Leeds a better place for all its citizens. It was great to see the amazing work the ten award winning schools had created this year in response to the challenge which was focused on the 'Lungs of the City'... the many green spaces and parks schools use and enjoy.

The ten great schools were:
  • Pudsey Primrose Hill Primary School;
  • Raynville Primary School;
  • Whitecote Primary School;
  • Hill Top Primary School;
  • Ashfield Primary School;
  • Burley St Matthias CE Primary School;
  • Manston St James CE Primary School;
  • Meanwood CE Primary School;
  • East SILC;
  • South SILC.

Great schools doing great things with some wonderful young people.
