Festivals

A Celebration of the Seasons

Seasonal festivals are celebrated at the school to mark important changes as we move through the year. Through these festivals, the school cultivates community among children, teachers, parents, and friends. In planning festival celebrations, the faculty considers the qualities of the season to be celebrated: courage, strength and perseverance at Michaelmas; the development of inner light through sharing and self-sacrifice at Martinmas; quiet hope and anticipation at Advent; love and inner light at the Festival of Lights and the Winter Solstice; the transformation, rebirth, gaiety, and celebration of nature at May Day.
