MANILA WALDORF SCHOOL ADVENT FAIR 2016





       Advent is just around the corner and the Manila Waldorf School (MWS) is excited to celebrate it with this year’s Advent Fair entitled, Weaving Peace, Hope, and Love in Advent, happening on November 27, 2016 (Sunday) from 9am to 5pm at the school campus in Timberland Heights, San Mateo, Rizal.
        The Manila Waldorf School is the pioneer school of Steiner education in the Philippines. Steiner (or Waldorf) education is one of the fastest growing non-traditional educational movements in the world. The school offers a full kindergarten to high school program.
         In line with this year’s theme, the main highlight of the fair will be a communal art piece for everyone to participate in. Simply called “UNITY INSTALLATION”, this woven canopy is meant to serve as a reminder to the community that anything is possible when groups come together as one. MWS is a community which provides opportunities for everyone to work together, grow, learn, and heal. To the children, the canopy could signify that when people unite, there is hope. 
          Admission is free. There are also raffle tickets at P50 each for exciting prizes from the different classes and various concessionaires. Proceeds of the sales will go to the school’s Teachers Fund, which will be used to finance the teachers' overseas Waldorf education training next year. 
          The Manila Waldorf School looks forward to seeing you on November 27, Sunday at their Timberland Heights campus, only a mere 15 minutes away from the Batasan Pambansa in Quezon City. Amidst gently-rolling hills, verdant terrains, lush mountainscapes, and with an elevation of up to 450 meters above sea level, enjoy your Sunday with the MWS community with fresh air and breathtaking views of Metro Manila. The drive is truly worth it!
