100 years of Waldorf education

The Brighton Waldorf School, an independent school in East Sussex, is celebrating 100 years of Waldorf education

Waldorf is an international independent educational system which includes over 1,150 schools worldwide, dedicated to acknowledging the unique talents of each individual child.

School director Damian Mooncie said: “We are celebrating the Waldorf 100 in Brighton as we believe it is important to mark and commemorate the 100th year of Waldorf education.”

As part of the Waldorf 100 activities, Brighton Waldorf pupils have planted a celebratory tree, which will help with improving air quality, climate enrichment, conserving water, preserving soil and supporting wildlife.

Mooncie commented: “Planting a tree represents putting down roots, future growth and resilience. It will connect our pupils to the earth and give everyone at the school an improved awareness of the environment.”

He continued: “At our school, we are dedicated to balancing the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of each of our pupils in a way that gives them confidence and resilience, so the symbol of planting a tree on our grounds seemed an ideal way to celebrate the Waldorf 100.”
