Opening of Steiner Academy Hereford

(the narration starts about half way through the video. More videos here)

Just a quick note to say how happy I am that. following years of negotiations with the government, on Monday, the Hereford Waldorf School became the Steiner Academy Hereford - the first Steiner school in the UK to be funded by the government.

I went to the Steiner school (also known as the Hereford Waldorf School) from the age of 7 to 16, as did my sister. Dad taught there for a few years but had to leave due to financial difficulties - with no state funding teachers could only be paid in peanuts (as my older sister knows only too well - she's just completed 8 years as a teacher at the Bristol school).

Steiner schools are becoming increasingly popular in Japan - a very good thing if one considers the pressures that students are under in the state system.

To learn more about Steiner education visit the Steiner Waldorf Schools Fellowship.
