Leslie Brent and Ruth Danson
Dear Parents,

As you might have heard our first talk given by our guests from the Neve Shalom School was very impressive and a real success. Thanks to David Zylbersztajn we are able to welcome two other guests on November 7th, 19:00

We have the great pleasure to welcome Leslie Brent and Ruth Danson.

Leslie Baruch Brent  was one of the first Jewish children having been sent by their families to England for safety and lived at a boarding school which highly influenced his life.

Ruth Danson also was a student at the school founded by Anna Essinger who had, as Rudolf Steiner did, an alternative approach to education, and who started her first school only 30 km away from the first Waldorf school and at about the same time.

Leslie Brent kindly agreed to give a talk to our middle school in the afternoon as well as a talk with Ruth Danson together in the evening for you, and anyone you might want to bring along, about their lives and experiences.

Please feel free to share this invitation with your community.

Kindergarten Martinmas
Dear Kindergarten Parents,

We warmly invite you to our Kindergarten Martinmas Festival on Saturday 12th November 2016.

Please read the following information carefully as the invite is different for each class. We respectfully request that you do not share this information with your child so that they can experience the festival in the present moment, without expectations.

Chestnut Tree and Rosebush Kindergartens:  Meet at 4.50pm.
Apple Tree and Mulberry Bush Kindergartens:  Meet at 6pm.

We will meet in the class children's garden by the main school entrance.  Please be on time.

The festival will begin with a Puppet Show in the Hall.  After the Puppet Show we will light the children's lanterns, and our own, and go for a little local walk, singing our lantern songs. At the end of the walk the children will receive a little treat to eat.  Please make your way quietly home afterwards, carrying your lighted lanterns into the darkness of the Autumn evening.

This festival is suitable for Kindergarten-age children and we ask that you find someone to look after any siblings.  Please do not bring any dogs or flashing shoes and please DO bring tapers and spare nightlights (no electric nightlights please.)  Should a lantern go out, it is in the spirit of Martinmas to ask for a light from a fellow lantern-walker! Then we can all share our light with each other.

The children are making their lanterns with their teachers and they will come home with these after Kindergarten on Friday 11th. Please bring them with you to the festival.

We look forward to making lanterns with you all at our Parents Evening on Wednesday the 9th, 7.30-9pm.  You will need to bring a large-ish plain glass jar with the label removed. (2Ib size is good but larger or smaller would also work - just bear in mind that it needs to be not too heavy to carry.)  If you are able to also bring any pressed Autumn leaves then we would be grateful. 

Warm wishes,

The Kindergarten Teachers
Please come to our Kindergarten Parents evening on Wednesday 9th November at 7.30-9pm.  We will meet in our own groups and prepare for Martinmas together. There will be the opportunity to learn or practice the songs for the festival the following Saturday and to make a lantern.

Warm wishes,

The Kindergarten Teachers

Free yourself from habitual tension and pain, and discover ease of movement.  

Feldenkrais is an awareness based technique which is particularly effective for those who suffer chronic pain from everyday activity, for mindful stress reduction and for neurological conditions.

I also teach individual lessons at St Peter’s Church, De Beauvoir, N1 4DA; or Digby Crescent (near Clissold Park), N4 2HS.  They cost £40 for the first session, £35 thereafter.
