Please support our Student’s Charity

Dear parents, students and school community,

My name is Lily, and I am currently in year 10 here at Cape Byron Rudolf Steiner School.

I’d like to begin by thanking everybody who has already donated, your contribution has helped to make this happen and I have now put together my first 20 or so #PeriodPacks.

As this will be an ongoing initiative, with packs made up each month your continual donations and support will be very much appreciated.

I am also looking for prizes that I can raffle to fund raise for the cause. So I would also be delighted to receive any donations in this area.

Please read below for the Period Pack story. You can also now follow #PeriodPack on Instagram at @PeriodPack_ and see where your kind donations are going.

Recently I have become aware of groups helping homeless women in big cities, like Sydney, through the distribution of care packages filled with things like sanitary items and a bottle of water. These basics not only help women who are on the streets manage basic hygiene, but also allow them to spend what money they do have on food and other necessities, rather than sanitary products.

Shocked by the realisation that I’ve never really thought about how homeless women manage menstruation, I did some research on whether Byron Bay and surrounds had any similar services. They don’t.

When you walk around Byron Bay, you don’t see many homeless women; but that doesn’t mean they aren’t there. As I read in the Northern Star, “The people you see day to day on the street is by far the minority…The vast majority of ‘hidden’ homeless people include…large numbers of vulnerable women, especially younger single parents, older women, and a large number of women fleeing domestic violence.”

I’d like to help these women, in what ways I can. One of those ways is by giving them clean sanitary items. I hope to make up several care packages and drop them into homeless centres and soup kitchens in Byron Bay and Lismore (to begin with) and hopefully expand from there.

I would very much appreciate any donations, sanitary products or other basic toiletries, such as toothbrushes and deodorant etc, which can be dropped into the office for me to collect.

Thank you,
Lily x

Moral Technologies Workshop

Moral Technologies is a new and exciting initiative of Seed Australia exploring the theme of being human in the age of technological development. In April from 7th- 10th 2017 we will host Orland Bishop (founder and director of Shadetree Multicultural Foundation USA) for a four-day intensive event at a retreat centre in Templestowe, Melbourne. We will dive deeply into exploring different facets of our humanity and our creative potential, and how that relates to the time in which we live and the rapid developments in technology.
We welcome people between the ages of 15 and 80+ to come together, through workshops and activities, to create a dialogue and community that bridges the generations and sparks greater wisdom and inspiration for the future.

French for Parents

Bonjour chers parents,

This year once again our school has been accorded a grant for a French language program called “Parental Polyglots”.

The aim of this program is to propose some basic language skills to you parents so that you may understand what your children do during the French language classes. You will also be learning how to get by whilst travelling, how to order “un croissant et un grand café”, how to understand directions, and so many other fun things.

I would like to propose a one hour per week session over three terms; Term 2, 3 and 4.
I suggest Tuesday mornings from 9.15 am to 10.15 am.

I would be very happy to know of your interest to join this session.
Please contact me via email at francoises@capebyronsteiner.nsw.edu.au

Merci.
À bientôt.

Anthroposophical Society in Australia National Conference

LIFE & LIVING

April 12-16 2017, Tocal College, Hunter Valley, NSW

“It is now the task of Anthroposophy not only to reach the single individual in respect of the fundamental needs of their soul, but actually to stimulate the whole of human life. Wherever the creative human impulse is seeking for active expression from within, there this striving can find contact with the source of Anthroposophy. For Anthroposophy takes all that is human for its province.” Rudolf Steiner
