Eurythmy and Award Evening
- Head, Heart & Hands Awards
- Colin Dutson Award
High School Families and community members are warmly invited to attend this ceremony on Monday, June 17 at 7:00 pm. This ceremony recognizes and honours the achievements of our High School students while acknowledging the namesake of this special award, Colin Dutson, “given in recognition of outstanding leadership and social responsibility in the school community.”
Colin Dutson grew up in England and immigrated to Canada where he became one of the founding teachers of the Vancouver Waldorf School in 1971. Colin was a class teacher and a French teacher for many years. He was serving as Administrator at the time of his sudden untimely departure from this life in May of 1997.
Colin was a man of courage and conviction. His gentle demeanour and warmth towards students and colleagues alike found expression in the sincerity of his eyes and the smile he so readily shared. Heart forces truly radiated from Colin, making him a natural leader and allowing him to express and act upon his deep sense for the social good.
These qualities serve as the basis for nominations submitted by the students of the High School. The final selection will be made by the High School Faculty for the Colin Dutson Award. In this fashion, the way of being that was Colin, lives on in our midst.
