From The Principal

The end of the term has arrived and as I watch excited students and very tired teachers leaving the site, I am reflecting on what a busy, productive and event-filled term this has been.
There have been school camps, excursions, visits from musicians, singers, dancers, overseas students and their teachers, performances, special activities, after school activities, the introduction of a new school constitution, our Annual General meeting, a range of parent and staff meetings, and a range of rich, engaging, inspired and thoughtfully prepared learning experiences in every part of the school.  No wonder everyone is ready for a break!
Our Winter festival last week was, once again a beautiful, inspiring and moving experience.  Our senior students showed wonderful leadership in assisting with the set-up and running of the event.  The team of staff, lead by Tom and Loani, put such a lot of work into ensuring that this is a very special occasion in the life of our school.  Each year we learn a little more from the year before, and each year our staff create something very special.
This week, our Year 9 and 10 students presented their Electives showcase.  The artworks were expressive, creative and of such a wonderful standard.  The performance of “The Snow Queen”, was awe-inspiring (did anyone expect those goblins to come streaming down from their silk pods high up, near the ceiling of the hall?).  With beautiful set-design, wonderful music, truly funny clowning and clever use of audio-visuals, it was a wonderful showcase of just what our Year 9 and 10 students are capable of achieving.
Finally, today, we had a visit from some of our Cape Byron Alumni to talk to High School classes about their lives and the opportunities available to them once they had graduated. I was lucky enough to share lunch with them today and thought they were wonderful ambassadors for our school.
Thank you to staff, students and our school community for making this such a wonderful semester.  Have a safe, joyful and restful break and I look forward to seeing you again in the new term.
Peace
Nerrida

News from Class 3 Last Sunday Class 3 parents and children gathered together at school for a wonderful social event combined with a Spring Fair meeting.  Parents kicked off the games with a three-legged race to inspire the children, who followed suit.  Then parents adjourned to the classroom to discuss final job allocations and fine-tuning of Spring Fair organisation while the children played games on the lawn, under the supervision of a couple of wonderful High School students, Jamila and Jemaia and a few parents who were outside keeping watch over the oven.
The oven outside the classroom which had been so neglected had been cleaned up by several parents last Friday afternoon. Each family brought topping ingredients for the pizza lunch.  Craig, Shanie, Francis and Joe amongst others helped prepare and bake the pizzas which were delicious, we all ate so much.
This was the best, most enjoyable Spring Fair gathering I’d ever attended.  Many, many heartfelt thanks to the wonderful parents of Class 3.  You guys rock!  Love, Rosina.

From The Principal

As the days grow shorter, it feels like we are getting ever busier.  Perhaps it is just because the end of the term is drawing near, the teachers are all writing reports, some classes are out on camps and excursions, the High School Electives Showcase night is almost upon us and there are a number of events happening in and around the school.  Thank goodness for the Winter Festival, which will give us a few moments of quiet reverence and reflection (as well as some beautiful sounds and sights).  You may have noticed the typo in last week’s bulletin.  Rest assured the Winter Festival is happening on Friday the 19th of June (next Friday)……. not the final day of term as was accidentally advertised.
This week we have been blessed with a wonderful visit from the African Children’s Choir.  Our students have really enjoyed sharing in a workshop with the children from the choir, hearing some of their stories and listening to their amazing music.  Thank you Loani for putting such a huge effort into making sure our school could be a part of this amazing tour.  It is a humbling experience to hear these children talk about some of the challenges of their lives in Uganda.  To look upon the lives of another with respect, care, empathy and an open heart is to experience being fully human.
Finally, it was wonderful to see some of the lovely crafts on display at the market this afternoon.  The Wednesday craft co-op have been meeting regularly and working away all term on some beautiful crafts.  My special little “King Winter” will take pride of place on my desk now. If you are interested in joining the craft group, please do come in on a Wednesday morning.  It is a great opportunity to chat and enjoy making with some other members of our school community.

Peace

If you have driven to the school in the last week, you would have seen our beautiful, new school sign.  Bruce Johnson has been working away at this special project for weeks and we now have a stunning new sign pointing the way to our school.  Our new sign, made from a very beautiful slab of Camphor Laurel timber, is an appropriate reflection of our wonderful school.  Thank you to Bruce for your wonderful work on this, from design through to completion and erection of the sign.

Year 11 drama students at CBRSS have recently completed their studies of styles of theatre where they delved into the major theatrical traditions from Greek Tragedy to Absurdism. At the conclusion of this study students recently attended LaBoite Theatre’s production of ‘Medea’ to see what is possible in a professional, contemporary take on Ancient Tragedy. Students are now in the throes of a major production of Bertolt Brecht’s classic, ‘The Threepenny Opera’ to be performed late next term.
African Children’s Choir
Class 5 and 6 will be performing at a special concert on Sunday 14th June at 6.30pm at Mullumbimby High School.
They will be singing in the first half from 6.30pm – 7pm and will also have the opportunity to perform with the African choir in the second half.
ALL STUDENTS FROM CLASS 5 AND 6 ARE EXPECTED TO ATTEND. 
Dress code for the concert will be plain coloured pants or skirts with an orange, red or yellow shirt without patterns. An orange, red or yellow dress is also fine.
All children who are participating will be able to watch the show at no charge.

Reminder – parents on site

Just a reminder, if you are coming on site for any purpose other than to pick up or drop off your child or to attend a class event or festival, please come to the office and sign in.  We need to be aware of who is on site at any given time for evacuation purposes and also for child safety purposes.  Your assistance in this would be greatly appreciated.  Please also be aware that if you are on site without a visitor pass, one of our teachers may approach you to ask who you are.  As our teachers can’t be expected to know every parent in the school, it is better that we ask than risk having uninvited strangers on the school site whilst the children are here.

From The Principal

“Let us recall how the year’s course, in its regular sequence through Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter has a spiritual content. How, in what appears outwardly during the year’s course, in Winter’s snow, Spring’s sprouting waxing life, in Summer’s life of blossoming and Autumn’s life of ripening and fruiting; how in all this which discloses itself physically to humankind, something spiritual is hidden, something spiritual sustains us.”
– Rudolf Steiner, (Festivals and their Meaning)

Winter has arrived and, whilst we do not have the experience of “Winter’s snow”, we nevertheless feel the change of the cold, crisp air, the clear winter night skies and the shorter days and longer nights.  We can also feel the change of the seasons within ourselves.  This is a more reflective time, a time when we can sense the need to “come inside” and experience our own selves in the stillness.  It is a lovely thing to take the time to quietly consider what it is that spiritually sustains each of us through all of the year.

Throughout the school, preparations are underway for our Winter Festival.  When I walked through the school this week there were High School children working away at making lanterns, primary school students practising beautiful festival songs and fire twirlers making their magic in the (empty) car park.

The celebration of festivals is a very important aspect of Steiner education. It is a wonderful opportunity for parents to take time to experience with their child a connection to the natural world and to give acknowledgement to something beyond busy every day activity. As they move through the school the children of all ages become familiar with the rhythm and certainty of the seasons and calendar of festivals. It brings certainty and security in a world of so much uncertainty. The beauty and traditions provide enrichment and allow everyone who participates to feel connected to the world and to each other.

We appeal to you to find ways to acknowledge the festivals through making the time to attend or being involved in discussions with your child about the meaning of each festival or season as it arises. Lantern making is a world-wide Steiner activity and the deeper meaning of bringing light into darkness is something that will live beyond the actual festival evening.  Perhaps now is the time for you to start working on your own lantern to join our lantern walk during the Winter Festival.

Peace

The position of tallest person in the class has been a fiercely vied for contest. While Maree has resorted to all sorts of shenanigans to hold her position, wearing heels, putting her hair up in a high bun etc, the honour has been bestowed upon Krystal Rose Pierce.

COMMUNITY NOTICES

Gabe and Cecilia
Album Launch- “Vesselsâ€

Well, you all know Gabe and Cecilia by now- along with the rest of the amazing Brandolini Family! Gabe and Cecilia have something special and very new to share with you all.
I am constantly amazed by these two musicians. They have contributed so very much to the Byron Shire and to our schools Music culture and community life for many years.
Gabe and Cecilia have released two EP’s in the last three years, and now they are about to present a mature, interesting and ultimately very beautiful recording project, ‘Vessels’.

They will be launching the project at the Mullumbimby Civic Hall on the 20th Of June.
Come along and support these two amazing young people, see you there.
