From the Principal

Hello everyone,

The term has got off to a lovely, calm start with our students enjoying the calmer atmosphere the cooler weather brings. Having said this, there is a lot of activity around the school with students attending a range of sporting events off-site, the Kindergarten Autumn Festival happening (a little late due to the severe weather at the end of last term) and planning well underway for several camps across the school.

We are also well into planning for our Winter Festival. We have taken on parent and staff feedback from the last Winter Festival and will be making some changes to this year’s festival. We will publish further information about this important event in the life of our school in the coming weeks.

This week our new study group was launched. We are studying Steiner’s “Kingdom of Childhood” lectures. These lectures form a wonderful, accessible introduction to the philosophy which underpins the education we offer. I really enjoy leading this study group each year; it is a wonderful opportunity to get to know parents and friends of our school in a relaxed setting. The study group meets most Thursday mornings this term at 9.15 am in the library. If you are interested in coming along, it is not too late to join in. Please contact Yvette at the school for information or see details further along in this Bulletin.

Finally, there is quite a bit of illness around the school at the moment; many staff and children are unwell. It would really help us to slow the spread of illness if you could keep any unwell children at home until they are completely recovered.
