Rudolf Steiner supported the development of Waldorf education in England with lively interest. He gave important lecture cycles on education there between 1923 and 1924, visited the first school and advised the founding college of teachers.… >> Woman power in Great Britain
Movement is one of life’s age-old phenomena. We probably never associate life with movement more than when we see children in action. Stand on the edge of a schoolyard or a playground and watch the children. It is a picture of pure motion.… >> Movement in childhood

For a long time, free play has been neglected for the sake of early literacy and numeracy. The appreciation of free play has only been revived in the last few years. But is it really seen and understood for what it means to the child? How do we, as parents and educators, approach free play? What does it mean to us?… >> Free Play – Now and Then
Are you excited again and again by Steiner's educational impulse? Is it a heartfelt affair and a daily source of inspiration for you? Do you truly say 'Yes' to people as physical and spiritual beings?… >> Project 'Teach the Teachers'

Annual Giving Appeal 2015
This week the Glenaeon Foundation launches Annual Giving 2015.Von: Glenaeon Rudolf Steiner School
• Stage One of the Glenaeon Community Kitchen
• The launch of the Sylvia Brose All Rounder Scholarship
The Community Kitchen will be used for food preparation lessons where students will prepare the seasonal food harvested in our biodynamic garden. Stage Two of the project will focus on providing a 5 day-a-week fully staffed canteen and Stage 3 will focus on seating, terracing and a walkway. We are hopeful that in time the café will become the heart and soul of the community.
The Sylvia Brose Scholarship is named fittingly after one of the school’s founders. It has been our goal to provide scholarships for students who would otherwise not afford a Glenaeon education for some time. Our first scholarship will be awarded to a student entering Year 10 in 2017.
For these important projects to be realised we need to raise $80,000. If every Glenaeon family gives just $250 we will reach our target. If you’re not currently in a position to give or can manage less, we understand that too.
To support these projects please go to our online giving page. Thank you in advance for your support and generosity!
