Location:  Glenaeon Rudolf Steiner School Hall,

5a Glenroy Ave, Middle Cove. 7pm - 9 pm.

PLEASE JOIN US  for a celebration of the presence of Rudolf Steiner schools in our commmunities and a look into the future - including the possibility of a university developing from the same educational ideals.

 

It also celebrates the threefold social impulse of Rudolf Steiner from which these schools grew - hence Liberté, égalité, fraternité.

 

The event is really a thanksgiving for the support for these initiatives we are hoping to receive. Please go to AIM to find out what we are trying to achieve with this money.
