The Vancouver Waldorf School and the
Graduating Class of 2020 proudly present
Grade 12 Project Presentations
The Grade 12 Projects are a focused representation of what our students have come to out of the ideals and foundation of Waldorf education. Our graduates will demonstrate their readiness to move from a High School learning environment into their chosen paths as young adults.
The projects are assessed from several points of view – research and writing skills, originality of thinking, the manifestation of ideas and concepts, an oral presentation and ability to answer questions, and artistic and practical elements.
We hope that you will join us in supporting our Graduating Class of 2020!
Friday, May 8
The program begins at 6:45 pm
Horror Movies are an Artistic Reflection of a Depraved Society
“We make up horrors to help us cope with the real ones”
~ Stephen King
Cooking and Eating in a Group Setting and the Sustainability of Culture
“Cooking is all about people. Food is maybe the only universal thing that really has the power to bring everyone together. No matter what culture, everywhere around the world, people eat together”
~ Guy Fieri
The Manifestation of the Self in Cognitive Dreams
“Dreams have a superior intelligence in them…which leads us. They show us where we are wrong; they show us where we are adapted; they warn us about danger; they predict some future events; they hint at the deeper meaning of life, and they convey to us illuminating insights”
~ Marie-Louise von Franz

The program begins at 5:45 pm
Motivation for Sports Change Over Time
“If you’ve had a good time playing the game, you’re a winner even if you lose”
~ Malcolm Forbes
Slow Fashion: Reawakening Our Historical Relationship with Fibre
“If human skill and cunning are personified by Athena, and the central womanly skill is weaving, then weaving can itself become a metaphor for human resourcefulness”
~ Elizabeth Wayland Barber
15 minute intermission
How Music Affects the Brain and Being of an Individual
“Music does a lot of things for a lot of people. It’s transporting, for sure. It can take you right back, years back, to the very moment certain things happened in your life. It’s uplifting, it’s encouraging, it’s strengthening”
~ Aretha Franklin
“In a gentle way, you can shake the world”
~ Mahatma Gandhi
In order to practice safe distancing, for the first time in VWS history, our students will be presenting their projects online. We ask that out of respect for their privacy, recordings are not made of the event and that you do not share your access link.
To be added to the guest list, please click RSVP here. Arrive early to allow time to “settle in” and address any potential technical issues so that you do not miss any of the presentations!
We wish our Grade 12 Students all the best and look forward to sharing their projects with you next weekend!
