2008-09 Waldorf Greek Games
Posted by sunrise5 on Apr 27, 2009
Congratulations to the 2008-09 Fifth Grade students! These students participated in the Annual Waldorf Greek Games - this year the games were hosted by the Redmont Waldorf School in Alabama - where approximately 120 students and teachers from the SE Region Waldorf schools came together for three (3) days to participate in the ancient games. They were divided by city/state in a display of grace and beauty as they threw the discus, javelin - ran the relay, long jump and upright wrestling. The opening ceremony included artistic presentations by each school as well as the reading of the Ode to the Greek Gods. Each student left forevermore changed as they completed this rite of passage. Again, Congratulations Fifth Grade!

How wonderful that these children were able to come together and participate based on their strength and not worry about competing against each other!
