Festivals at Sparrow Academy
At the Sparrow Academy, festivals play an essential role for the school community. Celebrating festivals brings a sense of rhythm and anticipation, and particularly for the young children, this is an important part of their growing up. Honoring festivals together is also a way of keeping time. Throughout history, festivals have been interwoven with life and the cycles of nature. In Waldorf schools, we too have found our own meaningful way to honor the seasons and their different qualities.
