Monday 2nd June - an amazing day

Monday the 2nd of June was an amazing day - teepees, learning buffaloes, friendship and learning all at #barnsleyteachfest - check out the hashtag we were trending above the world cup at one point!

 Saturday morning was a hive of activity - mainly the wonderful team @WCPS who had everything colour coordinated, labelled and under control, not to mention festooned with pop poms.

The teepees in the early morning light - fortunately the weather held!

We had the support of  Dan Jarvis our local MP who is fully supportive of the amazing educators in Barnsley. We heard from three thought provoking key note speakers Richard Gerver, Vic Goddard  and Hywel Roberts (the local lad)

Lots of opportunities to network, learn and think. Local school pupils showing their business ideas, as well as companies sharing resources. 

A huge thank you to the whole team but especially to Julie Tallant - the force behind the day - seen on the left below with Cathy Cross - den builder extraordinaire

To end a wonderful day we had pizza and bucks fizz in tepees! I then arrived home to find that my book had been put forward for a 'People's book prize award' I'm really honoured, excited and 'gobsmacked' - if any of you would be kind enough to vote the link isHERE

Thanks to Cathy for being a one woman marketing machine!

The best Monday I've had for a long time!!
