Winter Fair Parent Volunteer Guide
Our parent-led annual Children’s Winter Fair will be held on Saturday, November 23 from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm. The Fair celebrates our children and community at large, is our largest outreach event, and raises money to support initiatives that further serve our children. VWS invites our current families, alumnae families, and hundreds of guests from the lower mainland into our school to showcase our children’s beautiful work and invite children to imaginatively explore the many magical wintery spaces the parents create together.
Many hands make for light work! Below are many of the volunteer opportunities available for our Children’s Winter Fair. Please find your class activity and take a shift there, then see where else you might help fill in the gaps in other Fair activities and preparation. Stay tuned for more information from your Class Reps about your activity.

The regularity with which the Sun moves through the seasons, the regularity manifested in the growth of plants and in the life of animals, this regularity was once chaos. Harmony has been attained at the cost of great travail. Humanity stands today within the same kind of chaos, but out of the chaos, there will arise a harmony modelled in the likeness of the harmony in the universe. Peace to those who are of goodwill.
~ Rudolf Steiner, from Festivals and Their Meanings, Christmas 1923
