Many thanks for this. I very much enjoyed the evening and was greatly impressed by the standard achieved by all those present. I am sure they will build on the skills and experience gained through the LEAP process and go on to do very well.  


LEAP is a fantastic opportunity for our young people and I do appreciate and thank everyone who makes it possible.

Hi Donna,

Just wanted to say thanks so much for asking us to be involved with the Trade Fair on Saturday.  I was truly blown away at the level of creativity, drive & ambition of the young people there.  What a great initiative!


I’ve seen the blog and pics you’ve added to your website, we’ll promote at our end too.  Can I just ask which schools were involved?
