This week has been a time of celebration for people
The Queensferry bridge has finally opened, and some
school kids have had the opportunity to walk across it...
The Queensferry Crossing cost ?1.35 billion to build, connects Edinburgh
with Fifa and will carry 24 million vehicles a year. It was like a
pretty important bridge, and it opens this week with a very
important guest, the Queen. Celebrations have been happening all
week, and 10,000 kids from schools nearby have been invited to be some
of the first people to walk across the bridge, and I went with them.
I'm excited about going over the bridge. Looking at your window and
seeing the bridge there, and thinking, I remember what this was
like when this bridge wasn't there. It's pretty amazing. My grandparents
live at the top of the hill, so they could sit and watch it being built
through their window, they have watched every step of it. Off we go!
And it's just a short drive to the bridge. We going on a big bridge,
are we all excited? It seems like it's going to be so boring, but then
it is so exciting. Were about half way across the brand-new Queensferry
bridge. As you can see, my Scottish weather, but that doesn't matter,
because these guys are quite excited, aren't you? We met the
Queen yesterday! It was awesome! What was it like being on the
bridge? It was cool, I liked it, it is nice to have the experience of
the bridge opening now when I am young and I can just remember this
day forever. Most of you are either already
back at school or just And it's not always easy
to fit in to a new school That can be even harder
if you have a disability. Hi, I'm PJ, I'm 13 and this is my
school. I like playing wheelchair basketball, I compete at quite a
high level in it. I like tennis. I wouldn't say I'm great at it but I
really like the sport. So in the past, I wasn't able to do as much as
I could, because of my old wheelchair, as it was heavy. I had
next to their independence, I have to be pushed everywhere, I had to be
supervised all the time, which was pretty awful. I needed a new
wheelchair, and thanks to a charity, I got a new one, which has helped me
in many different ways. It has made my life a lot better. Now I can
manoeuvre greatly around the school and it allows me to play with my
friends a lot more, and it also allows me to play my favourite
sport, which is basketball. When I got the wheelchair, I was like
overexcited, I was so happy that I had finally got a new wheelchair.
This is how I feel in an emoji. To anybody who was starting school with
a wheelchair, I'm just going to say, stay positive, and just get stuck
in, get involved like everyone else. Don't worry, you are no different.
You will make tonnes of friends and it will be a lot of fun in the way
through. And Prince George
starts school today. The four-year-old
will go to Thomas's His uniform includes
a red polo neck shirt, navy shorts long red socks
and black shoes. The prince will also
wear a V-neck jersey with the Thomas's badge on it,
as well as a navy jacket. That is all from me, but Newsround
is back right here in about half an hour. Don't forget, you can check
out the website folder rest of the day's stories, and I will see you in
about half an hour, enjoy your breakfast. Goodbye.
