Vancouver Waldorf School – Movie Monday

Each Monday we will feature a short film relating to Waldorf Education. Perhaps a lecture, pedagogical content, sister-school production, or tutorial.

Please enjoy today’s presentation:

Sister School – Haleakala Waldorf School

From our friends at the Haleakala Waldorf School.

Education for the 21st Century: The aim of Waldorf education is to teach children how to think, rather than what to think – so as to enable them to think for themselves. Today’s challenges are global and interdisciplinary. Haleakala Waldorf School prepares children to meet the future with the knowledge and skills to pioneer world-changing solutions. The Waldorf child learns about the world through an experience of the hands, the heart and the mind, and in so doing, acquires a living wisdom that enriches the intellect and deepens the natural joy and wonder of learning.

* The Vancouver Waldorf School provides an experiential, age appropriate approach to education based on the insights of Rudolf Steiner that inspires students to love learning, to be creative, open-minded, and compassionate. With a curriculum that integrates all academics with the arts and social learning, Waldorf Education develops not only the left and right hemispheres of the brain, but the whole human being. A child’s social, emotional, physical and intellectual development is considered equally, supporting a conscious unfolding of the individuality within each student. Waldorf graduates possess capacities for empathy and clear, creative and independent thinking that enables them to carry out a chosen course of action with moral courage and social responsibility.
