The McGregor Waldorf School
The students of the McGregor Waldorf school recently announced that the fact that the school is multi cultural, multi lingual and has a welcoming country style living where the one rule is respect are some of the treasures it has to offer.
McGregor, the home of the McGregor Waldorf School, is situated in the Breede River Valley of the Western Cape. This small, well preserved village sits amongst mountains surrounding beautiful country dotted with vineyards and fruit trees.
The McGregor Waldorf School consists of a Playgroup, Kindergarten and Primary school and is located right in the centre of the village enabling our local children to walk to school. Children from the surrounding areas of Robertson, Bonnievale and Ashton are collected by a minibus and a 40 seater second hand bus.
The McGregor Waldorf College is housed in ‘the Kampterrein’ as it is know in the village. These beautiful site boarders on the Nature reserve and looks upon the surrounding mountains. The older children who are coming from as far as Zimbabwe, Johannesburg and Cape Town live in our two hostel homes.
Our school is a private school registered with the Department of Education and the Independent Schools Association of Southern Africa (ISASA). The school is a member of the Federation of Waldorf Schools. The registration of the school as a Non-Profit Organization is being processed.
The teaching taking place in the McGregor Waldorf School and College is based upon the principles of Dr. Rudolf Steiner. Waldorf Schools around the world are committed to these intrinsic principles of education developed by Dr. Rudolf Steiner, the guiding force behind the Waldorf School movement:
- Childhood is sacred.
- Children learn naturally and easily when a curriculum meets their specific developmental needs.
- Children’s imaginations must be carefully nurtured and protected from the encroachment of materialism and media.
- Education must address the whole child, not only the intellect, but also the physical, social, emotional, artistic and spiritual capacities.
Receive the child in reverence, Educate the child with love, Let the child go forth in freedom.
- Rudolf Steiner -
