Tropical North Steiner School raises funds

Greetings from Tropical North Steiner School!
We are reaching out to our fellow Steiner families to inform you that our beautiful School will be opening its doors in 2021 with the humble beginnings of seven students.
We are situated in Mossman, Far North Qld, on the lands of the Kuku Yalanji Aboriginal people, between two ancient World Heritage Areas, The Great Barrier Reef and the Daintree Rainforest.
A small group of community members are working tirelessly, driven by a strong impulse and a community spirit.
To ensure we can open with sufficient funding, we have started a GoFundMe page seeking the financial support.
We are writing to invite you to join us on our journey of discovery, building strong foundations for our opening year.
Once we settle into our new school, updates of our progress will be shared with our support community. And we hope that one day, those who have made all this possible, will allow us to welcome them onto our school site and into our hearts!
We thank you in advance for any donation you can offer via our GoFundMe page.  –

Your Health Link Photographic Competition

Now in its fifth year, the Your Health Link Photographic Competition is open to students from every
primary and high school across Australia and will launch on 1 December 2020 with the theme:
‘We’re all in this together – keeping safe and healthy during the pandemic’

This year’s theme provides an opportunity for students to learn about health guidelines during the
pandemic via the competition website – wearing masks, washing hands, social distancing, staying home
when feeling ill and how these guidelines prevent the spread of COVID-19.

The Competition will enable students to artistically express their knowledge and weave the principles of
keeping safe and healthy during a pandemic into everyday life.

There are two categories for primary and high school students, entry is free, with individual prizes for
category winners including a cash prize to support their school’s healthy school canteen program. There are
also opportunities for the whole family to participate through the Mobile and Open categories.

The Competition closes 24 January 2021 with winners announced in March 2021.

As of 2021, Sydney Rudolf Steiner College will be running Rudolf Steiner teacher education (early childhood and primary) via a combination of online weekly, term-based lectures and bi-annual four-day training intensives.

This new course delivery format will enable us to build more engagement with our students by having a regular weekly lecture night.

In addition, the 4-day bi-annual intensives will give students a deeper experience of pedagogy, anthroposophy, artistic practice and personal development.

We very much hope to run the intensives in Sydney, in-person but are also committed to running them online should we have to.

We would love to hear from you so if you have any queries please call Sydney Rudolf Steiner College on 02 9261 4001.
