Dragon Tree Project – Building Our Future

The Imhoff Waldorf School is very excited to formally announce our Dragon Tree Project, Imhoff Waldorf’s School Building and Development project. Over the past 5 years the School’s Board of Managers (BOM), together with a core team of project managers, have been working relentlessly on realising the dream of owning a permanent home for our school.

In 2015 the Board of Management secured an option to purchase prime land located behind our primary school which will enable us to grow our school to over the next three to five years. Regular updates on the Dragon Tree Project will be emailed to you via our school newsletter, via our website and through parent information letters.

Should you have any ideas you would like us to consider, please feel free to contact Claire Lacey, Fundraiser, who will be actively working with the Dragon Tree Project team to turn our vision into a reality.

It is an incredible milestone to officially announce this development to our parents who have been dedicated supporters of our school over the past 20 years and we take this opportunity to thank you for your commitment and support. For more information regarding this project, kindly email Claire Lacey on clairel@imhoffwaldorf.org

Dragon Tree Roundup 13
The predicted rains for this weekend bring some form of relief to most of us. Just the fact that it can still rain, even if only a little, brings cause for celebration. Nature reminds of how dependent we are in our environment, and we learn how to respect nature through this negative experience. In the same way that rain brings an expectation of progress and hope, we know that every step taken to build our new school brings expectation and hope to its staff, parents and most importantly our students.

In December 2017, some parents had a chance to walk through the site of the new school with our architect, Keith Suthers. This was a special moment, as parents made footprints in the soil almost as if laying the pathways for their children to follow. Our photo captures this historic moment.

News on our fundraising front, we are launching eco-friendly shopper bags. Made with environmentally friendly hemp material, the bag will carry our emblem printed in eco-friendly ink. We are so excited as these bags are not only reusable, playing a role in minimising plastic waste, it also proudly carries our name. And with these bags we spread the news of our Eco-School. These bags will be available via the school and at selected markets.
