Giving Matters

The Big Dig 2016-18:

Over the next two years, we will focus our fundraising to enhance our outdoor spaces. We are transforming our outdoor environments into unique spaces of possibility. Please support our campaign to build two natural spaces at the school by Beinenstock; pioneers in natural outdoor environments. To learn more about the concept and designs of the outdoor environments, please visit our school and view the drawings in the lobby or contact Matt Denton at bom@waldorfacademy.org .

 

 

Please see more about Beinenstock’s natural playgrounds, including their philosophy and portfolio on their website: www.naturalplaygrounds.ca

 

All of nature begins to whisper its secrets to us through its sounds. Sounds that were previously incomprehensible to our soul now become the meaningful language of nature.‘ – Rudolf Steiner

Education is expensive. There is no getting around it. Funding is a constant pressure whether you are a public, private or independent non-profit school. Education is labour intensive – the backbone of every school is the highly skilled teacher. It also requires tools – places to work, play and explore, materials to learn with, instruments to make music with. It adds up. At Waldorf Academy we believe in providing a learning environment that requires everyone to invent and create, so we do not aspire to all the bells and whistles you might find elsewhere. Our needs are very specific to our unique program and while tuition can cover our basic operating costs, it does not extend to the extras we need to fulfill our Waldorf ambitions. The Annual Fund is a fundamental part of our ability to offer the best Waldorf environment for your children and we encourage everyone in our community to participate. As little or as much as you can, your gift is an investment in the future.
