Longniddry Buses

We have been made aware today of some problems with East Lothian Council’s Longniddry bus routes into school.

We have been in close contact with East Lothian Council, and it would seem that this has been caused by students catching buses not allocated to them.  We understand that a letter from East Lothian Council over the summer break detailed the year groups assigned to each of two buses, and that detail is summarised below.

Should any Longniddry families not have received that letter – and we understand that has been the case in some circumstances – then the detail below shares all that was contained within it.

We are confident that students catching the correct bus tomorrow will resolve the situation.

I am very sorry that young people and their families have been inconvenienced in this way, and do please contact our school office if there are any further problems. Although we do not organise the bus service, we are keen to play an active role in the resolution of any difficulties.

Holland 2018: Final Report

Good morning to all our readers, thanks you to those who have been in touch, our travellers love to read your comments.

Today was our second cross border incursion to our third country – The Kingdom of Belgium.

Our visit to Bobbejaanland was accompanied by some beautiful weather and we had a great day in the sunshine. It all got too much for our First Aider (Jill Johnstone) who required to seek attention at the Medical Room, she was advised by the attending staff that there was little that they could do about ageing.

The young team continued to make the most of the great weather and the many thrill rides of Bobbejaanland before collecting Jill and taking her for a cup of tea and a wee scone.

The return journey had many sleepyheads recharging batteries for our final evening in the amazing  Hotel Op De Boud .

Bowling and Karaoke until bedtime.

All the staff would like to thank the parents and carers for entrusting your fantastic young people to our care for the past week. They have been great company and a real credit to their families and the school.

This is our final blog post of the trip as we have no internet access on North Sea Ferry.

See you all on Thursday afternoon.
