CBRSS Study Group – Sol Circle

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.

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

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.
