Free Bus Travel Scheme
October 3rd, 2022 at 11:49 am

On Tuesday 13th September 2022, the Scottish Minister for Transport approved the launch of the national marketing campaign for the Young Persons’ Free Bus Travel Scheme and, in doing so, also celebrated that over 20 million journeys have now been made through the scheme.

The national campaign is continuing with advertising on digital and social media, TV, radio and buses for the next few weeks to help raise awareness of the scheme, showcase the attractiveness and sustainability of bus travel and encourage even more young people across the country to take part.

To apply for your travel enabled National Entitlement Card visit either of these two websites:

freebus.scot or  getyournec.scot

The websites contain helpful information for families and young people about free bus travel; how it works, how to apply, the benefits and some tips for travelling safely. It also features the decision tool feature, to help make it easier for people to understand the different ways they can apply.

OURWBESITEBANNERFRONTPAGE

At The Gordon Schools we have recently renewed our Vision.

This guides our everyday actions and expectations and is a statement of what we are trying to be and do as a School.

An easy way to remember our Vision, is using the initial of our School – T G S

 

 

 

Together

Is about treating one another positively, kindly and with respect. We are all a part of the School community, the Local Huntly community and beyond. Our actions here affect other local, national and international communities. We must consider what consequences our actions will have on others and on our environment, both locally and globally.

 

Growing

We need everyone to value and look after their health. This includes physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health.

TGS should be a happy place, with support for everyone to feel good about their health. We want you to develop confidence and resilience for life in and beyond School.

 

Succeeding

Success means being the best possible version of yourself that you can be. If you succeed with this then you will learn as well and achieve as much as you can. Have a growth mind-set – explore new things and aim for future successes! At TGS we want you to be proud of your achievements and successes and we will celebrate those with you.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you require any further information – we will be happy to help.

Mr P Gaiter
Rector
The Gordon Schools, Huntly
