The following notice about upcoming fall events, for parents and friends at the Toronto Waldorf School, was recently circulated by Katie Ketchum, who is the director of marketing and admissions at TWS. We thought it might be of interest to RSCT friends as well, so, with Katie's permission, we are sharing it here on the RSCT blog:
There are a series of really exciting speakers, including Michael G. Thompson, author of Raising Cain (and six other titles) and Cynthia Aldinger, Founder of Lifeways North America. Michael Thompson has appeared on The Today Show, The Oprah Winfrey Show, and 20/20 amongst many others. He will be speaking on social issues in Middle School in the Forum at 7pm on December 12th and this is a free event- not to be missed!
As October is fast approaching, I wanted to take the opportunity to highlight our October Events.
On October 2nd, we have the launch of our monthly Tea/Coffee with the Administrators. This is an opportunity for a check in with Angelo Zaccheo and Helene Gross and will take place in the lobby from 8.15-9.15am.
October 10th brings the first of our guest speakers; James Brian, Executive Director of The Rudolf Steiner Centre will speak on the Neurological Basis of Writing and Reading. This is especially appropriate for parents of children Grades 3 and below. 7pm in the Music Room.
October 15th is our annual Alumni/ae Q&A and High School Information Evening. This is open to parents across the school and for students in Grades 7 and 8. We will be hosting Alumni/ae from a range of backgrounds including Finance, Law, Education, the Sciences and the Arts. This is a fantastic opportunity to mingle with Alumni/ae and ask all the questions you have always wanted to know the answer to! We will also have a formal presentation on the High School Curriculum- be sure to attend to learn what makes our High School unique. 7.30pm in the Forum.
On October 24th , our Grade 2 teacher, Warren Cohen will be presenting From Form Drawing to Physics – an exploration of a uniquely Waldorf subject and this looks to be an exciting opportunity to engage in some hands on activities. 7pm in the Music Room.
