The parents and families of the children that attend The Alice Springs Steiner School play a vital role in the school.
Here are some frequently asked questions from our parents and carers
How can parents help with fundraising and community building?
Now more than ever, it is essential that we spend time and effort to build our community and maintain our special bonds. There are several fun and easy things you can do to help strengthen our Steiner community: ·
Let the school know you are interested in helping out with community activities. We often call upon parents from our current families who are willing to be an advocate for our school, and support at school events. Steiner schools across the world rely on the grass-roots support of parents. Come to community events and take the opportunity to talk with prospective parents about the wonderful education our school offers. ·
How can parents become members of the school board?
Parents/carers can become members of the council or governing body of the school after they have been members for 12 months. Parents/carers may be part of subcommittees or task groups that are formed from time to time.
How can parents get involved with the school?
Being involved in the school’s community is a great way to meet like-minded and interesting people and Alice Springs Steiner School prides itself on its great sense of Community spirit. Parents/carers can participate in many class activities such as craft, school camps, working bees, fundraising, assisting in class and excursions. We always need parents to help organise and coordinate the annual Autumn Fair. Each class has a specific role or stall to organise and be rostered on, and there is a committee formed each year to coordinate the fair which is the schools biggest fundraising event
How do I find out more about Steiner education and what my child learning?
Parents/cares attend class meetings in the 3rd week of each term where they can learn more about, and experience the curriculum and class activities their child/ren are undertaking, discuss and share ideas and ask any questions they may have. We also send out a fortnightly school newsletter that details what each class has been learning. And you can always talk to your Class teacher, they will be more than happy to take the time to talk to you about your child.
