This week has been a time of celebration for people

:00:52.:00:54.

The Queensferry bridge has finally opened, and some

:00:55.:00:59.

school kids have had the opportunity to walk across it...

:01:00.:01:02.

The Queensferry Crossing cost ?1.35 billion to build, connects Edinburgh

:01:03.:01:19.

with Fifa and will carry 24 million vehicles a year. It was like a

:01:20.:01:24.

pretty important bridge, and it opens this week with a very

:01:25.:01:28.

important guest, the Queen. Celebrations have been happening all

:01:34.:01:36.

of the first people to walk across the bridge, and I went with them.

:01:37.:01:44.

I'm excited about going over the bridge. Looking at your window and

:01:45.:01:48.

seeing the bridge there, and thinking, I remember what this was

:01:49.:01:52.

like when this bridge wasn't there. It's pretty amazing. My grandparents

:01:53.:02:00.

live at the top of the hill, so they could sit and watch it being built

:02:01.:02:03.

through their window, they have watched every step of it. Off we go!

:02:04.:02:08.

And it's just a short drive to the bridge. We going on a big bridge,

:02:09.:02:16.

are we all excited? It seems like it's going to be so boring, but then

:02:17.:02:22.

it is so exciting. Were about half way across the brand-new Queensferry

:02:23.:02:26.

bridge. As you can see, my Scottish weather, but that doesn't matter,

:02:27.:02:29.

because these guys are quite excited, aren't you? We met the

:02:30.:02:37.

Queen yesterday! It was awesome! What was it like being on the

:02:38.:02:42.

bridge? It was cool, I liked it, it is nice to have the experience of

:02:43.:02:45.

the bridge opening now when I am young and I can just remember this

:02:46.:02:46.

day forever. Most of you are either already

:02:47.:02:48.

back at school or just And it's not always easy

:02:49.:02:51.

to fit in to a new school That can be even harder

:02:52.:02:55.

if you have a disability. Hi, I'm PJ, I'm 13 and this is my

:02:56.:03:12.

school. I like playing wheelchair basketball, I compete at quite a

:03:13.:03:16.

high level in it. I like tennis. I wouldn't say I'm great at it but I

:03:17.:03:21.

really like the sport. So in the past, I wasn't able to do as much as

:03:22.:03:26.

I could, because of my old wheelchair, as it was heavy. I had

:03:27.:03:33.

next to their independence, I have to be pushed everywhere, I had to be

:03:34.:03:38.

supervised all the time, which was pretty awful. I needed a new

:03:39.:03:44.

wheelchair, and thanks to a charity, I got a new one, which has helped me

:03:45.:03:48.

in many different ways. It has made my life a lot better. Now I can

:03:49.:03:52.

manoeuvre greatly around the school and it allows me to play with my

:03:53.:03:56.

friends a lot more, and it also allows me to play my favourite

:03:57.:04:01.

sport, which is basketball. When I got the wheelchair, I was like

:04:02.:04:05.

overexcited, I was so happy that I had finally got a new wheelchair.

:04:06.:04:12.

This is how I feel in an emoji. To anybody who was starting school with

:04:13.:04:16.

a wheelchair, I'm just going to say, stay positive, and just get stuck

:04:17.:04:20.

in, get involved like everyone else. Don't worry, you are no different.

:04:21.:04:24.

You will make tonnes of friends and it will be a lot of fun in the way
