Soul Man: “…each encounter makes me want to deepen our acquaintance”

As we celebrate the origins of Steiner education 100 years ago, it’s also worth re-examining the remarkable work of Dr Rudolf Steiner himself. Here’s an interesting article from the New York Times I came across some years ago which describes an exhibition of Steiner’s work. 
Douglas Brenner is a Steiner educated student himself and is now a well know author and writer on design topics in the US. His article gives a personal reflection on the originality and remarkable diversity of Steiner’s work across so many disciplines.

Remember our Glenaeon celebrations of the centenary of Steiner education at Castlecrag on Saturday September 14th. Details are on the flyers later in the Newsletter.
Please share this event with family and friends who may be interested in a glimpse into the wonderful world of childhood that Steiner education promotes and delivers. We welcome all parents and friends of the Steiner education impulse, a healing and enlivening impulse in the world.

Soul Man: “…each encounter makes me want to deepen our acquaintance”

Douglas Brenner

New York Times, April 7th, 2010

By age 12, I had a rote reply for grown-ups’ quizzical looks when they heard I went to a Steiner (Waldorf) school: “It’s based on the ideas of Rudolf Steiner.” Blank stare. “He was an Austrian philosopher who believed in teaching the whole student — mind, body and soul.” Luckily no one ever asked me to elaborate, because I’d have been at a loss for words — except to say that we students got to do lots of drawing and painting, which I loved, but we couldn’t skip Eurythmy class (yuck). Any serious discussions of pedagogic method and what Steiner called his “spiritual science,” anthroposophy, took place out of earshot in the teachers’ room. My only mental picture of Steiner (1861-1925) came from a dim black and white photo showing a stern mouth and X-ray eyes that made me glad this guy wasn’t our headmaster. Oh, well, I reasoned, as soon as I enter the real world after graduation, it’s Goodbye, Dr Steiner.
In fact, decades later, I keep bumping into him, and each encounter makes me want to deepen our acquaintance. A gardener I met praised the ecological marvels of biodynamic farming, a Steiner innovation. An art historian introduced me to the Goetheanum, a temple-like edifice that Steiner — an expert on Johann Wolfgang von Goethe’s theories of natural metamorphosis and the physiology of colour — designed to anchor the anthroposophical colony in Dornach, Switzerland.

Dear Parents,
It’s time to start submitting your term 3 CIPs now! You can start submitting any time from now until Wednesday 18 September 2019. No submissions will be accepted after this cut-off date.

Each family is billed $140 per term for the Community Involvement Program. When voluntary work is done and registered, it can be credited back to your account at the rate of $17.50 per hour (in other words 8 hours per term will entitle you to the full $140 credit). As there are many families at Glenaeon it takes some time to process the credits for everybody so we ask that you submit your form on time to have them credited back to you.

The CIP form is available online so it’s very simple to do! Simply click on this link  https://www.glenaeon.nsw.edu.au/community-involvement-program/ , complete the form and hit ‘submit’. Alternatively, paper forms are also available in the CIP folder held at reception - please fill them out manually and hand them in at reception.

Note, you must submit your CIP hours worked regardless of which committee/event/role you participate in or hold. Please refer page 34 of the Parent Handbook for more details (including what tasks are eligible for CIP credit). Note that credits are not carried over from one year to the next.

Simple Sustainability - Glenaeon is committed to reducing waste

REPAIR CAFES

Repair Cafés are free meeting places to mend your clothes, furniture, electrical appliances, bicycles, crockery, toys, et cetera with an expert volunteer.

We throw away vast amounts of stuff. Even things with almost nothing wrong, and which could get a new lease on life after a simple repair. This reduces the volume of raw materials and energy needed to make new products. It cuts CO2 emissions, for example, because manufacturing new products and recycling old ones causes CO2 to be released.

The Repair Café teaches people to see their possessions in a new light. And, once again, to appreciate their value. The Repair Café helps change people’s mindset. This is essential to kindle people’s enthusiasm for a sustainable society.

But most of all, the Repair Café just wants to show how much fun repairing things can be, and how easy it often is. Why don’t you give it a go?

Check online for a Repair Café near you.
