Charlotte Baird - a former Waverley pupil has just returned from Everest Base Camp!
Eight Excelsior pupils and 4 staff have been preparing to get to Everest Base Camp for the last 18 months. They have been fund raising in the local community who have been fantastic and their determination to get there has been tracked by the local press (TV and Radio).
They reached Everest Base Camp on Wednesday 22nd Oct and returned back to Newcastle on Thursday. If you go on Excelsior website there is a twitter link that has been tracking them, they have been sending photographs and people have been sending them messages.
It is a remarkable achievement for the 8 young people from our community including Waverley Primary School pupil Charlotte Baird .
Well done Charlotte - an amazing achievement.
