The Friday Fortnight

PR Clippings from the SWSF

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

Please find your latest edition of the Friday Fortnight, sent to you fortnightly during term time to support your continued interest in Steiner Waldorf education.

We hope that some of the articles may inspire you to get creative and start writing some articles/blog posts of your own. Recently, on the SWSF page we reached a staggering 154k in just one week - so there really is plenty of interest in alternative, child-centred approaches to learning and education.

As always, please do feel free to be in touch if you would like any support with ideas or content. 

Warmest greetings,

Priya Mahtani
