Newcastle Waldorf School: Winter Solstice Festival

 

 

Newcastle Waldorf School celebrated a bright and crisp Solstice Day with a whole school excursion to the Watagan State Forest to sing, walk and roast some apples.

Students and parents could take a contemplative moment walking our peaceful Winter spiral in the hall. We enjoyed a well-attended evening with our school families. We shared warm soup cooked by the primary classes and enjoyed a shadow play of the folk-tale, Stone Soup with music performed by Class 10.  Class 6 enchanted us with a eurythmic firesticks performance to the dulcet tones of our String Orchestra.  The festival culminated with a spectacular lantern-walk around our new property next door and singing our Winter rounds.
