The school year revolves around the Seasons through which the changing aspects of the year are celebrated through a variety of Festivals and Fairs. The annual rhythm of the festivals fosters a sense of our relationship to the earth while providing a welcome opportunity for the whole school community to get together.
In our festivals, we remind our whole community about the importance of taking joy in the world we live in. We celebrate with music, stories, dance and songs, and often with shared food.
