Dear Waldorf community,
We are two students, Doreen and Laura-Isabel, in 10th grade of the Freie Waldorf Schule Oberursel in Germany. Our school is located in the beautiful Vordertaunus close to Frankfurt. The school has 350 students in grade 1 to 13.
We would like to celebrate Waldorf 100 with a fun and exciting project connecting Waldorf schools from all around the globe. We are therefore looking for students from grade 9 or above to join us and help us make a global Waldorf experience come alive.
How do we want to do this?
We would like to create a Global Classroom.
What does a Global Classroom mean?
We would like to connect with other schools and students to create a space for ideas and creativity on a global scale so that we can all learn about and enjoy different cultures and traditions and celebrate the Waldorf spirit and the Waldorf community together.
Our initial ideas for the Global Classroom are:
- Using live video chat, we would like to participate in the lessons of other Waldorf schools, no matter what the time zones or language barriers – we will find a way to overcome them.
- We could work together on a project, like an art project for example.
- We could collect all the different Waldorf-clichés and laugh about them together.
- We would like to form new friendships and to strengthen the intercultural sense of a Waldorf community by dancing our names together.
If you think this is a good idea and if you would like to join us in our effort to connect Waldorf schools and students worldwide, please contact us and help us make it happen!
We are looking forward to meet you!
Kind regards,Doreen and Laura-Isabelinfo@waldorfschule-oberursel.de
