Festivals and Special Events
Festival and celebrations are a central part of Waldorf education. Our school aims to awaken the child’s natural reverence for the wonder and beauty of life. Participating in festivals nurtures the child’s inner experience of the rhythms of the year and a sense of community is cultivated. We encourage all of the children and their families to participate in these wonderful community events where we carefully consider the qualities of the season to be celebrated.
Our singing group is made up of teachers, parents, and friends who gather for fun. It's a place where you can cut loose and unwind once a week. We sing for enjoyment and have opportunities to sing at events like the Garden House Christmas Fair. We would love to have you join us and welcome your voice to our group! Come for a session, sing and get to know our community. We also welcome youth participation (high school and up) as well.
1.5 hour/session (ongoing)

The living life of lines
Twice a month we meet to explore the movement art of form drawing. Movement art? you say, Yes, movement art, because we don’t draw to create a work of art. That’s not our goal (though we are allowed to take satisfaction in our beautiful drawing). The art lies in the movement itself and the crayon on paper is just a memory, a recording of that movement. This movement has an effect on us, sometimes calming, sometimes exciting! And in this way, we come to discover aspects of ourselves and the world, and discover how the world of straight line and curve has a deep inner connection with our human being.
Contact the school office if this sounds interesting to you.

Chinese New Year Celebration
Chinese New Year meant to celebrate with families, it is our tradition to celebrate with our families at Garden House with colourful activities. In the old days, most people living away from home will try their best to come back for a family reunion and we would like to invite the children, siblings, families and parents/guardians to join our celebration, this is our way to wish all of you a happy and healthy Year of the Rabbit.
On the day of the celebration, it is our tradition that everyone come to school wearing their traditional Chinese costumes or red clothing. The school will have already been decorated with festive items of red colours, knot pendants, lanterns and couplets.
Like a traditional Chinese market during Chinese New Year, there will be various activities including Chinese Calligraphy, fire crackers, paper cutting decoration, Chinese New Year traditional dumpling making to share with families. There will be a Children Dragon dance and Paper Shadow Show by children, and performances by parents and Garden House team. Surely everyone would enjoy a traditional festive morning.
