Principal News Dear Parents, Camping Classes are returning from camps with wonderful stories of their adventures. There was a lot of fun this morning hearing the tales, sights sounds and challenges. I have just returned from the Steiner association meeting last week held at the Mt Barker Rudolf Steiner School where camps came up as a topic. Many schools spoke about their programs and we can be extremely proud how ours works. The nature of the landscape here provides a unique opportunity for the children to have experiences not open to others. Whereas many schools have to invest heavily in buying equipment and then further invest in its maintenance we enjoy the simplicity of swags, a few bits and pieces and away we go. This week Class 4 and 5 are off to Hamilton Downs and section 2 of the Larapinta trail respectively. Steiner Education Australia Association Meeting The main discussion for the meeting was the changing of Steiner Education Australias legal structure to a Company with limited Liability. This change allows the Association to operate more efficiently as a National Body. Formerly the Association was registered in South Australia as an Incorporated association. Other topics covered in the 3 day meeting were: Teacher Training Nationally. The only Steiner tertiary training provider, The Melbourne Seminar, are looking to create a more collaborative approach with the schools. It was a great opportunity to talk about teacher training needs with other schools and share ways to support teachers in their task. Camping programs and risk management Ive mentioned The accreditation of the craft curriculum and the health and PE curriculum by ACARA (Australian Curriculum, Assessment and Reporting Authority) Visit from Costa Costa from Gardening Australia visited today following on from his appearance at the Eco Fair on the weekend. Costa came last year at the same time and loves what has been created here. He particularly loves the grain story the class 3 children are engaged in, recognising the incredible connection it creates for the children with their source of food and the cyclical and sustainable nature of life. Costa is not a man to be lost for words but one taste of our Mezuna Japanese Rocket took his breath away, in a good way of course.
