The Percy Watson Award

The Percy Watson Fund for Teaching Excellence

Across numerous studies, educational experts have found that the most powerful influencer of educational outcomes is teaching expertise.

Indeed throughout history, inspiring teachers have transformed lives in many incredible ways. One such teacher at Waverley College was Dr Peter (Percy) Watson MBE who taught here between 1957 and 1968. Fifty years after leaving Waverley College, the 1965/66 Reunion Committee decided that they would establish a fundraising initiative to honour Percy and his contribution to Waverley College.
