Live Life Well @ School ~ The importance of Sleep

Our school is currently involved in the Live Life Well @ School, which is co-ordinated by Northern NSW Local Health.  A snippet will be included in upcoming Bulletins about healthy ways to live life well!  Here is the first, on the importance of sleep!

Live Life Well

Sleep is Essential

“Sleep is essential for a healthy life, and it is important to promote healthy sleep habits in early childhood,” says Dr. Paruthi, of the American Academy of Sleep Medicine. “It is especially important as children reach adolescence to continue to ensure that teens are able to get sufficient sleep.”

How much do you need?

  •  Infants between 4 and 12 months – 12 to 16 hours of sleep  including naps.
  • Children 1 and 2 years – 11 to 14 hours.
  • Children 3 and 5 years old – 10 to 13 hours.
  • 6 to 12 years old- 9 to 12 hours.
  • Teenagers to 18 need 8 to 10 hours.
  • Adults, –  7 to 9 hours of sleep each day.

Getting the right amount of shuteye is critical to kids’ developing brains and bodies. The consensus from the panel was that if children clock in enough hours of sleep on a regular basis, it will lead to a host of improvements, plus better overall mental and physical health. On the flipside, the researchers found that sleeping fewer than the recommended hours directly affected a child’s behavior and increased their risk of a number of potentially harmful and life-long health problems.

Putting aside enough sleep for a child is one of the best ways parents can lay a foundation of healthy habits that children can take with them into adulthood. With more than one third of the adult population sleep deprived, sleep becomes paramount for children to avoid the consequences that come with a lifetime of sleep problems.

Do you need Au Pair help in your home?

Dear Sir or Madam

My name is Julia Langer, 19-year-old au pair from Hamburg, Germany. One month ago, I finished my A-Levels at our local Rudolf Steiner School and now I am looking for a Steiner inspired host family in Australia. I would like to take on a share of the family’s responsibility for childcare as well as some housework.

My Steiner school (Germany) publishes a newsletter weekly and there are often ads from students wanting to come over to and au pair or sometimes families looking for an English speaking au pair to come to Europe.

Does your school have a newsletter, too? Or do you have any ideas how I can find a suitable family?

Moreover, I am interested in working and helping at your school. I like creativity and music and I am open to new ideas. I would like to support for example:  class plays, assist with the scene painting, realize the set etc.
homework supervision, private coaching, tuition…

I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Kind regards from Germany,

Julia Langer

Winter Festival 2016

Our Winter Festival was a special, cosy, and reverent celebration of the Winter Solstice.  Students, teachers, and the school community gathered at the A & I Hall in Bangalow for some beautiful music, dance, song, and the lantern walk.  The Dynasty Eight choir delighted us with their harmonies, and Loani & Tom did a beautiful job of leading the students, teachers, and our very own school choir, The Grail Singers, in song.  Eva, and drama students from Year 11, mesmerised the crowd with a dramatic indigenous dance performance, the Aboriginal Myth of the Sun  It was the perfect way to celebrate the coming of the light.  The evening’s finale was a lantern walk of the spiral, beautifully laid out on the oval outside.  Students from Class 1-12 carried their carefully made lanterns and walked the spiral, on a very windy evening, before heading back to warm and cosy homes.

Dear CBRSS Families,

We are currently seeking prizes for our 2016 Spring Fair Raffle and Silent Auction from within our fantastically talented and generous school community.  If you are able to support our wonderful school with a prize donation of suitable goods, items, services, or vouchers, etc, this would be greatly appreciated.  Please contact Jen Henderson (jennyahenderson@me.com or 0413057600).

We will also be looking outside the immediate CBRSS community for prizes, but as this needs to be done in a co-ordinated way, we request that you please do not approach outside parties for donations without first checking with Jen (although any suggestions for contacts again are much appreciated).

Many thanks to all.

Faust Youth Summer Conference at Goetheanum

Faust

The Youth Section of the Anthroposophical Society at Goetheanum invites young people from all over the world to have an unique experience at the Faust Youth Summer Conference at Goetheanum, on the occasion of Goethe’s Faust 1&2, full version. This is a very rare opportunity with 17 hours of theatre! Several workshops and lectures will tackle essential questions raised in Goethe’s masterpiece such as who am I, Am I Faust, the development of identity, becoming human, etc. The conference offers young people the possibility to deepen and reflect on this existential issues together with others.

Thanks to a generous donation from some foundations the conference fee could be reduced to only 150 CHF all inclusive (performance, accommodation and meals). Five days in Dornach for this price does not happen everyday! Therefore we would like to ask for your support to encourage young people in your schools to come to the conference.

The conference is directed to school pupils, students and those in training under 35 years old that can participate as a class, a group or individually.

Under the motto “Am I Faust?”, the International Youth Summer Conference will take place from the 25th to the 29th July 2016 at the Goetheanum, in Dornach, Switzerland. (The performance will be in German, simultaneously translated into English and Spanish).

Here you find further information about Faust:
