            Verse of the Week 

In shining majesty the mighty sun,

A king upon his chariot of gold,

Climbs higher till the heights of heaven are won

In glory streaming, blessed to behold.


And watching him, I feel a strange sense grow

That speaks of things that now I cannot see;

For only later will I truly know

How at his hour, God’s Spirit of the Sun is touching me.

Summer Fest Thanks

Huge congratulations to the brilliant team on the success of this year’s Summer Fest at Anna Carriga. It was a beautiful location, the food was amazing and the workshops and talks were so much fun. We finished with a huge big dance and a dip in the lake and a heartfelt fantastic time was had by all. We took €1500 on the day for our school. Thank you to Jana for having us, to the food makers, food servers, musicians, speakers and wonderful workshop leaders and most of all the inimitable Avia – your vision was fabulous and you would have been proud.
Thanks from the PA


The school would like to add their own thanks to the dynamic team of people who were behind the organisation of and running of the Summer Fest. We appreciate the amount of hard work that goes into staging such an event and are very grateful for your efforts on behalf of our school.

Student from German Steiner School

We’re an Irish-German family at Freie Waldorfschule Lübeck (

Friends of ours have asked for help finding a place for their 17 year-old daughter to spend the summer or part of the summer (the have just 6 weeks holidays from July 7th to August 19th). She would ideally like to work with children or on a farm while improving her English.

She is in 11th class in the Steiner school here in Lübeck, plays the violin, and is generally very uncomplicated and open-minded. She was my daughter’s mentor when she was in first class and she was very kind and patient. I can get her to send on more details if there is anyone out there that can help.

Go raibh maith agaibh agus slán go fóill,
