Edinburgh Steiner School

Teachers Perform for the Pupils

Adam and Eve and God

Drama plays an important part of school life. It is a medium that can empower children on an individual level as well as encourage greater social cohesion as a class. From Kindergarten to to Class 12, all pupils work on and perform pieces that range from fairy stories to Oscar Wilde and Shakespeare. Our teachers also perform regularly, and the Paradise Play and the Shepherds' Play from the Oberufer trilogy which were performed over Advent were a gift from our teachers to our pupils.

Seeking New Trustees

Edinburgh Steiner School (ESS) is seeking interest from members of the community to apply for positions on the Board of Trustees. The Board of Trustees is responsible for the financial and legal welfare of the school, and for broad operational strategy. The Board is also ultimately responsible for ensuring that the School is fulfilling its objectives as stated in the Articles of Memorandum.

One of the highlights of the school year is the Michaelmas Meal. This is a time for all pupils and staff to share food together. It's a cross-school event, with pupils from every class contributing to the preparations; rolls are baked, napkins folded, flowers arranged and tables laid.

We were delighted to donate a number of old computers to the Alan Turing Trust today.
The Trust, which was established in memory of the mathematician and code-breaker Alan Turing, works in Africa to support students become more employable by teaching them IT and vocational skills. The computers will be refurbished and then placed in schools in Malawi.
You can find out more about the work of the Trust.
Pictured with members of the Trust team are Edinburgh Steiner School teacher Bruce Houldsworth and pupil Jack.
