New School Opens in Hebden Bridge

For over ten years the Pennine town of Hebden Bridge in the Calder Valley has been home to a Steiner Waldorf kindergarten. Two-and-a-half years ago the move to a beautiful old Sunday School in the picturesque village of Cragg Vale brought the dream of growing into a school much closer. This September the transition was complete as the kindergarten became the Calder Valley Steiner School. Its first class one, of eight children, began their school life in time-honoured fashion by experiencing the difference between a straight line and a curve. Meanwhile, two kindergartens and a thriving Parent and Child community are supporting the future development of the new school.

SWSF and all member schools send their support and best wishes to this worthy venture.
