Lancaster Steiner School celebrates 10th Anniversary

Lancaster Steiner School celebrates its 10th anniversary this October, since moving to its Lune Road site from Roeburndale in 2002.

Sporting a new look, the School will be holding an Open Day on Friday 26th October, between 2 – 4.00 pm.

This summer, parents and staff re-decorated the school under the supervision of parent and interior designer Heidi Bairner.

"All the parents pitched in," says Heidi, "and we are proud of how the school community has worked together to create a bright new warm and welcoming environment for the children."

To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the school, several ex-students who are now working or doing their A-levels, reflected on their experiences at the school.

Sam Randall, now a technician said, "I wouldn't be who I am today if I hadn't gone to the Steiner school as I really enjoyed, enjoying your education is how you learn, you have to have interest to remember things."

Kameela Kaur-Tisdall, who is now doing science and Maths A-levels at Ripley St. Thomas High School said, "I believe that it was my wholesome and warm start to education that encouraged my love for learning and broadened my way of thinking.

"The Steiner school education system is not a system that strives to teach children how to pass exams, but how to develop in themselves while providing a substantial foundation for further education. I would strongly suggest for any parent to at least consider this education system for their child because you have nothing to lose and a lot to gain."

For interested parents, the Open Day will be an opportunity to see what happens in a Lower School day, as well as a chance to sample some Kindergarten activities, such as milling corn.
