Adult Education

The Adult Education Group organises courses, workshops and lectures during terms 2 and 3, covering a wide variety of subjects. These courses aim to provide parents with an understanding of Rudolf Steiner Education and philosophy, supporting knowledge and understanding to accompany their children on their journey through the school, as well as an opportunity to participate in artistic and cultural activities.

Parents have access to their own library with books and articles supporting Steiner Education as well as current research on parenting issues. The Parent Library is located in the office building, first door on the right.

Opening hours are:

Monday                   closed

Tuesday to Friday     8.15 am - 9.30 am

 

All of this offers an exciting opportunity to follow your children's education as they journey from the joy filled days of kindergarten through the rich stories of the lower school to the worldliness of the young adult in the upper school.

In response to requests for good book recommendations for children we have started a website where we can all share books that we have read aloud to our children, or which we know they have particularly enjoyed reading themselves.

Below you will find a link to Goodreads, a book reviewing website, where you can read reviews of the books profiled on our site. We also have a link to a Goodreads’ group, Raphael House Children’s Books, which all parents, teachers and friends are welcome to join.
