The AutistiX are a band made up of talented musicians who are on the autistic spectrum. They agreed to perform a concert at the Dugdale Theatre to raise money for Waverley School. The evening started with a short documentary about the band and then the band performed their own rock songs. It was a great success and money is being used for transport for class trips and the Secondary 3 residential trip.

This year Waverley School pupils raised money for Sport Relief. On 18th March we completed Marathons by walking round Durants Park. Larch Class were the scouts and went out and measured a circuit of the park which was exactly 1 mile. If 26 pupils completed a 1 mile circuit, that was Marathon! We wanted to do as many as we could and asked family and friends to sponsor us.
All of the pupils were encouraged to walk, wheel themselves or be pushed on a circuit, or as far as they could.
The day was cloudy and rain threatened, but Waverley pupils and staff all wore red, braved the weather and set off on their challenge. When they returned to school, each pupil was presented with a medal for completing their goal. We added up the miles covered. Waverley School had covered 195 miles! Oak Class managed the greatest distance, an amazing 42 miles! That was 3 times round the park. Each!!
The next job was to collect the sponsorship. Once again the generosity of parents and friends was shown, when we added up a total of over £850, with 3 pupils raising in excess of £100 each.
The money raised for Sport Relief will help people living incredibly tough lives, both here at home in the UK and across the world’s poorest communities.
