CBRSS Chess Club

Dear CBRSS Community,

The Chess Club has been running for almost a year and some dedicated students come to play every session while others drop in occasionally to play or just watch. The atmosphere is relaxed and friendly and we welcome anyone to drop by whether it be to play or to watch.

Our Chess Champions so far are Willow (in Class 8) who has been busy honing her chess skills and started to beat much older students at their game without problems. She is closely followed by Riv (also in Class 8) who comes to most sessions and has demonstrated his ability to beat even seasoned players on a good day. – Well done, Willow and Riv!

We have decided to make some changes to our Chess Club in response to changing demand.
The High-School sessions are now running weekly on a Tuesday during lunch and we are currently not pursuing competitions due to a lack of interest.
Most excitingly, we are starting to run Primary School sessions on Fridays during lunch at the library.
Starting next term, we will set up the Giant Chess Set periodically for the High School during lunchtimes and for the Primary School during lunch sometime during the last week of term. – Exact dates and place of set-up will be announced soon.
Please contact Manuela if you have any questions or suggestions. manuelam@capebyronsteiner.nsw.edu.au

Friday Markets are back!

Welcome back to Friday Markets!  We are so pleased to welcome our beloved Friday Markets back.  Please be reminded that parents need to be responsible for their children’s behaviour and school boundaries.  This means that children are able to play, calmly, with supervision, on the top green area, under the Dome and on the low monkey bars only.  The high monkey bars and sandpit are out of bounds please, as are other areas of the school grounds.  Teachers will be present and we ask that parents please be responsible for their own children and keep them in their sites.
The Markets will officially close at 3:45pm.

FOREWORD by Arthur G. Zajonc
We live and act within a world whose deeper aspects are hidden from our physical senses. Yet each of us possesses other faculties which, when cultivated, can lift the veil that separates us from spiritual knowledge. In this book, Rudolf Steiner charts a meditative path that leads both to inner peace and to enhanced powers of soul, and finally to the lifting of that veil. The road is long but secure, and is open to everyone. Its fruits of inner serenity, strength, and wisdom benefit not only the seeker but others as well, and certainly the world stands more than ever in need of insights and actions that are born of the spirit. How to Know Higher Worlds is, therefore, not only a personal guide to the spirit, but also a path through self-knowledge to compassionate action in the world.

An invitation to the final exhibition of the collected paintings of Hans Schulz.

Shearwater invites you to an exhibition of the collected works of Hans Schulz, including paintings, sketches and photographs spanning many decades. The dynamic partnership between Hans and his wife Pam was the source of many creative initiatives, and the School acknowledges Pam’s own contributions and work, including the nurturing of anthroposophical arts at Blue Knob Studio, founded by Hans and Pam and home to many performances and gatherings.

This is the final time Hans’ work will be presented in such a way and we are privileged to have Hans himself talking about his paintings. There will be a guest musical performance by April Galetti and Ken Naughton to open the exhibition, followed by a short speech performance by Riana Vanderbyl and an introduction by Hans and Pam’s daughter, Celia Linklater.

The exhibition will be held at the Shearwater School Hall, 349 Left Bank Rd, Mullumbimby, on Saturday May 15th, between 10am and 2pm, with the opening presentations commencing at 11am. Some paintings will be for sale, for collection after the exhibition. Refreshments will be served and people are invited to stay, reminisce and converse.

Happy International Women’s Day for yesterday!

What is International Women’s Day?
International Women’s Day (8 March) is a day for us to join voices with people around the world and shout our message for equal rights loud and clear: “Women’s rights are human rights!”

We celebrate all women, in all their diversities. We embrace their facets and intersections of faith, race, ethnicity, gender or sexual identity, or disability. We celebrate those who came before us, those who stand beside us now, and those who will come after.

It’s a time to celebrate the achievements of women, whether social, political, economic or cultural.

What is the theme for International Women’s Day in 2021?
The global theme for International Women’s Day in 2021 is ‘Women in Leadership: Achieving an Equal Future in a COVID-19 World’. COVID-19 has impacted women and girls in profound ways, amplifying the inequalities they face every day. It is fundamental that diverse women’s voices and experiences are central to national and global recovery plans.

A key contributor to a more equal COVID-19 world is increasing women’s access to leadership roles. Unfortunately, women still face significant cultural, socio-economic and political barriers to accessing leadership. You can read more about this in our research Women’s’ Pathways to Leadership: Our Pathways, Our Voice, which investigates how and why women become leaders, and the gendered barriers they face along the way.

Community Christmas Play

NEWS FROM THE CHESS CLUB

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
