Children’s Christmas Fair Acknowledgments

Dear Parents and Friends,

Our Christmas Fair is a wonderful, festive celebration that brings our school community together through shared work and play while also reaching out to the greater community to promote our school. The entire grounds are transformed with a variety of venues offering delicious whole foods, special treats and many different activities for all ages.

Thank you to everyone who has participated. From far and wide, our school is renowned for offering a magical experience of seasonal wonder and joy. We couldn’t do it without you.

Each morning parents and guardians bring their children to this incredible place – the Vancouver Waldorf School. A place filled with warmth and rhythm, beauty and strength, challenge and creativity. Here the teachers nurture the children as whole human beings; they are taught to use their heads, their hearts and their hands and are given the opportunity to develop a lifelong love of learning. And while the teachers are deeply engaged in the artful awakening of our children, the impulse behind events like our Christmas Fair lift up that art through the joy of working together.
