A CLOUD of bubbles offered a symbol of hope as a Wearside school joined forces to raise awareness of autism.

More than 200 children at St Paul’s Primary, in Ryhope, gathered outside the school to take part in a worldwide effort to understand the condition and its spectrum of disorders.

The idea to launch the special Autism Bubble Awareness Day came from a parent at the Waterworks Road school.

Headteacher Natalie Fountain said: “She asked that we took part to raise awareness of autism, during International Autism Awareness Month.

“The bubbles are a sign of hope, and we decided to spread that message of hope across the Ryhope skyline.”
