This evening I attended the first Yorkshire Evening Post 'Best in School Awards 2010 at the University of Leeds...

The awards were sponsored by Standby Teachers, Ringways, Thackray Museum, Viking Direct, Vital, Kumon, Leeds Rhinos and Education Leeds and it was brilliant to see around three hundred children and adults cheering on the nominees for these wonderful celebrations of the best of Leeds.
