Waldorf schools thrive on a vast and active community of current parents, ex-parents, and other well wishers.
Bangalore Steiner school lives by this and also depends on this.
Whether it is several initiatives for school development, conducting various events and festivals, carrying out certain focused jobs, etc., the school definitely relies on partnering with their community (especially current parents) to carry out things.
None of the activities are mandatory but parents are encouraged to actively volunteer and participate in these partnering opportunities with the school.
Apart from a sense of involvement and satisfaction to the individuals in helping with the school development, it also is a visible example to the children to see parents/ other adults volunteer and do things and builds a sense of voluntary participation themselves with the school and community.
Plus it is a lot of fun!
