Northern Ireland's only Steiner Waldorf school will open its doors to families interested in exploring a tried and tested alternative to mainstream education on 23rd May at 10:30 am. The school, situated in Holywood, attracts pupils from across Northern Ireland, including Bangor and East Belfast, and caters for children from pre-school to GCSE age.
Stephanie Sim, who teaches at the school, says that the event will offer prospective parents the opportunity to speak to families attending the school and learn more about this unique learning environment.
"Steiner education aims to nurture and develop students who are confident and interested in the world around them. In a Steiner school, students are not measured against others but challenged to imagine new ideas and think creatively and confidently supported by a curriculum which offers a wide variety of rich perspectives on the world we live in.
It is a curriculum which evolves through its innovative, inspirational and integrative approach to learning.
Through it a holistic approach to learning and life in an educational setting which balances intellectual, artistic and practical capacities, allows your child to realise their own capacity to explore, experience and excel in life in a modern world."
If you are interested in finding out more, come along for this walkthrough.
