Rudolf Steiner described the aim of schooling as “Education of the Will”. The Outdoor Classroom is one effective approach for achieving this aim, while at the same time meeting the changing needs of children. Taruna is proud to host the Outdoor Classroom Immersion Course where John Lawry will lead workshops which involve:
- how to integrate Outdoor Classroom activities with the broader school curriculum
- setting-up processes (site survey) and basic equipment
- selecting craft-based outdoor environment programmes which deal with the constitutional and learning needs of children
- hands-on experiential learning of basic craft activities which are based on the four kingdoms and the three and four-fold picture of the human being
The cost of this course will be $690 incl GST. All materials, lunches, morning and afternoon teas will be included in this fee.
There is a special deal for schools sending more than one teacher. A second or third teacher from the same school can attend for a reduced fee of $550 each incl. GST
