Community school in picturesque environment

South Africa: In 1997, the Village Waldorf School was established by a small group of interested parents and dedicated teachers. It was then situated on a part of a small holding which later was developed into a security estate. The school is housed in buildings which were originally used as stables and a dwelling. The vibrant, growing community school is situated in the picturesque suburb of Rietvallei, near Irene, Pretoria.

Today, the school has around 60 students and the College of Teachers consists of five qualified and dedicated teachers and one assistant teacher. The teachers work hard to create an environment in which children can be happy, eager and able to learn. The teachers strive moreover, to engender the child with the self confidence that will allow their fullest potential to unfold.

The Village Waldorf School’s aims to educate its pupils through the respect of each developmental phase of childhood and by encouraging the child’s sense of beauty and truth. By applying Rudolf Steiners Waldorf curriculum, the aim is to inspire a lifelong love of learning and a secure sense of the student’s place in their community.

The parental community is of diverse backgrounds and means. A number of pupils have parents with serious financial constraints and whose children the School is eager to retain, even though this is not always easy to do financially.
