Community Christmas Play


It has been a great pleasure to see the many students from Years 6 – 12 come and play or simply observe a game of chess during the past term. The interest was so great that we quickly purchased three additional chess sets. Soon, the request came, “Can we play twice a week?” – Of course, we can. Will the six chess boards we currently have be enough? We may have to find more boards if the interest in PLAYING TO LEARN AND LEARNING TO PLAY is continuing to grow. – I am looking forward to an exciting year of chess in 2021.

Please contact Manuela at manuelam@capebyronsteiner.nsw.edu.au if you have any questions or would like to contribute in any way.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

CBRSS Chess Club

Many students are excited about the revival of the CBRSS CHESS CLUB this term. In the short term, the plan is for students to play friendly games at school, work out teams and develop skills. Long-term plans will include tournaments with students at other local and regional schools.

We would gladly accept donations of chess boards and/or sets should you wish to support this endeavour.

Please contact Manuela for more information. manuelam@capebyronsteiner.nsw.edu.au

Community Giving Fund

One of the great things about our school community is the care we have for each other. Covid-19 has inspired us to have a fresh look at how we support our school community. Hence, we have established the Community Giving Fund as a way for you to offer support to the community and thereby provide support for families who are doing it tough and struggling to meet their fee commitments.

The fund provides an opportunity for you to join us and contribute to helping families financially. Every act of generosity and simple kindness, big or small, has a powerful effect and goes a long way to supporting each other.

To launch the new Fund, the school has made a significant contribution and has already financially supported many families.

We are excited to be sharing this inspired new initiative with you and we thank you for your continued support of our amazing school.

‘A School’s Journey’, a history of Cape Byron Rudolf Steiner School

From the first dreams and visions of the original pioneers through the love and devotion of so many people, Cape Byron Rudolf Steiner School is now 30 years old. With enthusiasm, hard work and enormous trust from the first families, the School grew from small beginnings in the tin shed at Bangalow into a vibrant and strong school in Byron Bay.

The School acknowledges with gratitude all who have contributed to this extraordinary journey. Annie Barrett

Books are available to buy at Reception for $15.00
