Comic Relief Day - Friday 24th March
We have been involved in a lot of fundraising and suggest children wear their school uniform and a red nose for comic relief day. We will not be selling red noses and we will not be collecting money in school that day.
Thank you to everyone who supported our Christmas Raffle be either buying tickets or donating prizes. The Raffle raised £154.00 for school funds. Congratulations to all our raffle prize winners.
Have a great Christmas everyone and see you all in January.
Thank you to everyone who supported the British Legion poppy appeal this year. Your generosity raised an amazing £660.58. This meant Waverley was the best school in the area for donations and also helped the Lemington ward to raise over £4000.
Thank you to everyone who visited our book fair last week, it was lovely to see so many of our pupils so enthusiastic about purchasing a new book. Through your support the school raised £198 in commission, this will be used to purchase new non-fiction books.
Thank you to everyone who supported the school by sending in your pennies for the children to measure the length of the school corridor. Your donations not only meant we could create a line of pennies around the whole school building but also that we raised £233 for school funds.
Don Lamb is a member of our governing body at Waverley and is running the length of Hadrian's Wall to help raise funding for equipment for the outdoor learning classroom. Don is in training currently at clocking up the miles.
