Escola Waldorf Miguel Arcanjo
Like so many other Waldorf Schools, the Waldorf School in Belo Horizonte, the largest city in the Brazilian province of Minas Gerais with a population of two and a half million, gets its name from the Archangel Michael. It is the third or fourth Waldorf School in the city. It was founded in 2011, when the three teachers Patrícia, Carolina and Zaline were able to raise 6.000 reais or 1.500 euros, to refurbish a dilapidated house and open a school.
This happened at a time when the other Waldorf schools were unable to accept any more children and not all children attending a Waldorf kindergarten were able to continue their education at a Waldorf School. Since then the school has grown, moved, received more and more applications, but remained without sufficient financial resources. Much has been done to establish the school as a radiating cultural location, to offer courses and to attract more and more people to the schoolyard. Nevertheless, they have so much more to do.
Students and colleagues learn together, build, experiment and enjoy the shared experience. When learning is fun, Michael the Archangel can give the school not just his name but also his good graces.
