Celebrating 100 Years of Waldorf Education


The fourth light of Advent is the light of humankind –
The light of hope that we may learn to love and understand.

Dear <<First Name>>,

On behalf of the faculty and staff at the Vancouver Waldorf School, we would like to wish you a very warm and joyous holiday and a glorious new year. We are tremendously grateful to our community and deeply appreciative of the unique gift each of you brings.

A visit from Saint Nicholas and Rupert


You are a star
for me and all the troubled times
that labor so to bring to birth
that being, love and meaning of the earth.
Your starlight guides and lights and sees
the core, the struggles, and the dross of these.
And from the pain you undergo,
which we can never truly help or know,
such beauty springs
as brightens, nourishes, and heals
the heart, and mightily reveals
the artistry of how in us and in all things
the earth and heavens interlace
in one all-changing, wonder-blessed embrace.
~ Arvia by Christy Barnes

Blessings for a peaceful holiday,
