Unfortunately the “link to survey” button in the recent post is not working on some sites. This is the survey URL: Workforce Mobility Project – Young Scot Survey (surveymonkey.co.uk)
The Workforce Mobility Project would like young people to complete a short five minute survey. This is a great opportunity to highlight the transport and digital barriers and challenges which impact you and your families.
This survey is for all young people, and is asking about all forms of transport, from walking, public transport, personal car use and all points in between. It is also important to hear the voices of young people who might otherwise be ignored, such as young people with disabilities, and their experience of transport in the area.

Rise in Asthma Attacks
Did you know there is a rise in Asthma Attacks in August when pupils go back to school after their summer holidays?
Each year we see an increase in asthma attacks in children when they return to school which often result in admission to hospital.
Check out our top tips to try and avoid this happening.
Remember, asthma attacks are serious and you need to get help day or night if your child is not responding to their blue inhaler.
All East Lothian Council schools, nurseries & specialist education provision will remain CLOSED to pupils on Friday, 2 March, due to adverse weather.
See this news story on the East Lothian Council web site for more disruption info.
Yester Primary has won a number of national and international awards since 2009 for their eTwinning project “Schoolovision” which is a primary schools’ version of the Eurovision Song Contest, invented and administered from right here in Gifford! The project is still going strong today, in 2016, with 38 countries taking part, though for the moment Yester have stood down. With the 10th anniversary of the project due in 2018, we intend to return and help our pupils continue to learn about Europe in an innovative way.
Have a look at the video below, which shows some of the entries in the 1st five years of the project.
Below is the Yester entry in 2014, the Scots song Ca’ The Yowes.
In 2013, we performed the operatic song Let’s Go To The Opera, and were allowed inside Yester House to film the song!
In 2012, The Proclaimers kindly gave us permission to sing their classic song I’m Gonna Be… 500 miles.
We sang the Scots song Killiecrankie in 2011.
Way back in 2010, we performed the all-action Until The End!
