Mariela’s summer volunteering in Bosnia

As our parent and child leader, and through my years working in KG, I am lucky to know many of the families of St Pauls. Some of you may know that I am a reflexologist working as a volunteer with people with long-term illness and emotional distress. I am also a member of Healing Hand Network, a charity that is dedicated to the relief of suffering caused by war and disaster.

As part of the Healing Hands network, I want to travel to Sarajevo for two weeks this summer to offer treatment to people that are still living with the traumas of the terrible Bosnian war. This individual attention can help people release and dissipate traumatic memories and take a further step towards self-healing.

I need to raise £800 to pay for my airfare, room and board for a two week tour of duty. Healing Hand Network receives no official funding and relies on the generosity of its supporters to send therapists to Sarajevo. If you do feel able to contribute (every little bit adds up!), then you can transfer your donation direct to The Healing Hands Network, or if it is easier for you, give me a cheque made out to Healing Hands Network, in person.

At the entrance of the school, you can find a box with the logo of Healing Hands Network where you can put in your donations. Any help that you feel you can afford would be greatly appreciated by me and everyone I shall try to help.

Many Thanks and lots of Love

PS I am also offering reflexology sessions in exchange for a donation. It would be at your home Monday’s evenings or Saturday’s morning. If you are interested, please contact me by email:

Au Pair
My name is Mahé. I am a French-German student from the south of France. I am searching for a family that could receive me as au pair in September / October 2015 for a few months. 
  I would be particularly happy to take care of children who attend a Steiner school. I have been at a 'Waldorf school' in Germany, when I was younger, and now I would like to deepen this approach.

An A4 size page about me is in the school's folder at the entrance with more information about me.

Spanish intern at St. Paul’s,  seeking for a family to live with and  look after their children

Hello! My name is Francisco de Borja (everybody call me Borja). I am 23 years old and I am just about to take my degree at university in Primary and Elementary Education next July.

I am so happy I have the opportunity of an internship  at St. Paul’s Steiner School. To make this dream true I am looking for a family, not far from the school if possible, whom I could live with. In return I may look after the children and help with their homework. I will be starting in September, initially for a four-month period,  though I intend to spend the whole academic year in this school as it offers me a practice in such an interesting  context in which Fine Arts play a significant role.

I think I can say I am a sociable and reliable person. Some of my hobbies as football, basketball, tennis or handicrafts  are particularly good to share with children.

Of course, references from within the United Kingdom are available on request
If you think we could help each other in the way I have explained, please contact me at

Eurythmy festival June 2015

There is a celebration of eurythmy for all, taking place in June on the 25th at Steiner House.

Children from schools will share their work, students training to become eurythmists will perform their work, and graduates from West Midlands Eurythmy and Peredur Euryhtmy will perform their graduation pieces. London Eurythmy will also perform a piece by Beethoven with a free inititaive group.

Children will witness eurythmy students aspiring to become eurythmists, they in turn will witness graduates moving ahead, and all will witness professionals at work, together with a new ensemble.

St Michael Steiner School is planning to bring class 9 and 11, possibly 6/7. If you feel you would like to contribute something, please get in touch.

All are welcome, bring along family, friends and guests. Entry is free, but to help us cover costs, we are asking that each participant contribute £1.00 toward the event, and there will be a collection at the door for visitors. 

The programme starts at 5.00pm to 6.30pm for schools and students, and 7.30 to 9.00pm for graduates and free initiatives.
