Play is an essential part of every child’s life. It is vital for the enjoyment of childhood as well as for social, emotional, intellectual and physical development. Since Scottish schools will be on holiday in August when national Play Day is held, Play Scotland suggested celebrating it on June 21st, the longest day of the year. The idea is to encourage children to get outdoors and get active.
As part of their four-week exchange with the Rudolf Steiner Schule in Coburg, Class 8 visited Bamberg. One of our pupils, Cristina, reports:

We are delighted to to welcome pupils and teachers from the Rudolf Steiner Schule in Coburg. They will be staying with us for the next four weeks. In the meantime, our Class 8 pupils and teacher are visiting Coburg.

The Spring Fair and Plant Sale is a lovely chance for the school and wider community to come together, celebrate the brighter days and browse the various stalls.
This course offers an opportunity to explore the ideas of Rudolf Steiner at a deeper level
