Out into the world: the Cheonggye Free Waldorf School in Seoul

South Korea: The Waldorf movement in Asia has enjoyed quite a boost since the turn oft the millennium and one outcome is the Waldorf School in Seoul, South Korea, which now bears the name Cheonggye Free Waldorf School. Meanwhile, it provides education to about 250 students in 12 grades with 28 teachers, many of whom studied in Germany. Furthermore, the school library features over 70 volumes of Rudolf Steiner complete works, thanks to German donors. However, on its way to this reality the school community moved five times since its foundation in 2002. In 2009 it received the official recognition of the Hague Circle. On 23 April 2011 the initiative was finally able to inaugurate its own school building in a long-awaited ceremony.
