Rest & Be Thankful are the words which are located on a stone near the junction of the A83 and the B828, placed there by soldiers who built the original road in 1753. The original stone fell into ruin and was replaced by a commemorative stone at the same site.
I always think these are appropriate words to describe the end of term for teachers.
Unless you’ve been a teacher yourself you can never fully appreciate how exhausting teaching actually is.
Can I take this opportunity to thank all East Lothian teachers and support staff for the work they’ve undertaken for their children over the last term and I hope your break is restful. Well done for making it through to the end of term.
