One of our key goals is to support Waldorf education in the Ottawa area. This is why we have partnered with Polaris School and Centre, which opened its doors this past September. Based on the principals of Rudolf Steiner, they attempt to bring this rich education in an accessible way to those in the area. Their financial model allows for families to contribute what they can to the school. Anyone who wishes to attend is welcome regardless of their financial means. This model is intimately connected with the desire to cultivate a vibrant community which is involved and supports the school. We welcome you to become a part of this community.
With your generous donation, you can ensure that these children and many others receive an education that prepares them for life. The allowance for wonder and discovery, rather than rushing and testing, allows the young person to develop many capacities in their inner life. They develop their values, their morality, their sense of judgment, their intellectual rigour and profound understanding. All of this brings about a deep trust and connection in all the facets of life and gives them courage and confidence to enter the adult world.
You can read much more about the history, governance and financial models, and about the curriculum, including their Community Day and Farm Day programs, on their website: www.polariswaldorf.ca.
Thank you in advance for your contribution. It means so much to have your support.
