Friday 8th November: This morning the Shetland Playvan came for a visit; there were lots of different toys for the younger ones and for the pre-school group to enjoy. Elaine Skinley, Shetland's Road Safety Officer came as well. She showed the older ones how to check their bikes everytime they go for a ride and the signals they need to help other road users know what they plan to do.

Friday 1st November: Today Ms Breyley and Mrs Lawson (from Cullivoe School) were in Glasgow talking to people about the Food for Thought project we are going to do in the New Year. We have been awarded a grant from Education Scotland so we can learn about seafood and the aquacuture industry in Shetland and in Yell in particular. We are lucky that we have the support of 2 local businesses.
