Each spring and autumn we host a forum for the community to learn about some of the ‘behind the scenes’ happenings at our school. At our Spring Forum, our hope is: to reflect back on where we’ve come from this year with a presentation from our Strategic Planning Committee and the unveiling of the tapestry created at our Spring Market; to look at where we are now with a panel discussion including members of our Administration, Parent Body, Faculty, & Board of Trustees; and to envision the future with a short film and exploration of of how to get involved in global plans to celebrate 100 years of Waldorf Education; all while celebrating YOU, without whom none of this would be possible!
Please arrive at 7:00 pm for a Wine & Cheese (or Sparkling Beverage) Reception, then the meeting will begin at 7:30 pm, this Wednesday, May 10 in the Grade School Hall.


The final stretch is on for our Grade 12 students. They are very close to their fundraising goals but, still have a little way to go before they leave on May 27.
On May 12, at 8:00 pm in the Grade School Hall the Class of 2017 will be hosting a ‘House Concert’ with Lorna Fortin and singer-songwriter husband Mark James Fortin, for an intimate evening of original songs and stories. We recommend audiences ages 13+ with a minimum donation of $20 for youth and $25 for adults. Seating will be limited, so reserve your seats ahead of time by calling Ronaye – 604-985-7435 x 0.

Have a lovely week!
