In the east of Croatia, in the city of Osijek, a new Waldorf school is being built. Already since 2015, a group of people has been working to establish Waldorf education in Osijek for the first time and initially organised lectures and workshops and realised some social projects. In 2017, a Waldorf kindergarten was established - among other things through donations via the Friends of Waldorf Education. In September this year, the school will open with a pre-school, a first class and after-school care. The founding association is renting two rooms in an educational centre in the centre of Osijek. This is a stroke of luck for the initiative which, as an independent school, does not receive any state support during the foundation phase. If necessary, additional rooms can be rented for the morning hours. Furniture and toilet facilities are already available. The education centre is located near green spaces and parks, and the school garden is also easily accessible from here. Nevertheless, there are some necessary expenditures to be made. For example, all toilet rooms and classrooms need to be renovated and the toilets need to be adapted for children's use. In order to be able to carry out these renovations in time before the school opens, the school is dependent on donations.
