Event description
We welcome our Alumni to the school for a celebration of 80 years of Edinburgh Steiner School.

About this Event

2019 is a double milestone year for our school - marking eight decades since Dr. Pelham Moffat opened the gates in 1939; and the Centennial year of Steiner Waldorf education worldwide - now with over 1,100 schools on every habitable continent, and 2,000 Kindergartens.

As part of these celebrations we are founding an Alumni Association and would love to invite you to our upcoming event for our former pupils, teachers and parents.

An exhibition of scholars work will surround the hall, with performances by both pupils and former pupils, talks on our rich history to what we are striving for in the 21st Century, and nostalgic peaks into the classrooms.

Canapés, refreshments and bubbles, with freshly shucked Scottish oysters will garnish the afternoon.

Can you arrange a reunion?

We welcome anyone to help us spread the word to fellow classmates about the event. We have the spaces to accommodate reunions on Friday 3rd May (from 2pm) if the demand is there.

Other birthday events/activities:

Thursday:

We are holding a special assembly on Thursday for those alumni who would like to see more of the children taking to the stage, followed by an Open Tour visiting the classrooms as the curriculum unfolds. The assembly will include an extract from this year's large-scale Oliver! production, a sample of our Upper School's Acapella group, music by the school orchestra, and much more.

This will be followed by a Garden Picnic Party on the lawn to which the whole school community is invited.

Friday:

The last day of the school week is an early finish for most of our Lower School, rounded off with a social Friday Market from 1pm. You are most welcome to come along, indulge in the food stalls before reconnecting with classmates, peers and former teachers from years gone by.

The classrooms and hall will be opened up from 2pm to host reunions upon request.

If you wish to attend Thursday's assembly, the garden party or wish to attend/host a reunion on the Friday, please let us know when registering for a ticket or via email:
