The Gift of Learning
The Steiner Waldorf Schools Fellowship recently commissioned ITN to make a short film to look at some of the key features of a Steiner School including:
- How Steiner Schools nurture spiritual development in keeping with the cultural setting of the school and without being tied to a particular faith;
- The emphasis on “doing” to complement academic learning;
- How the absence of testing in the younger years nurtures enthusiasm for learning;
- The importance of quietness and contemplation as part of the school day.
