The Advent Festival will be held today, Monday 4th December at 17.00. Everyone is warmly invited to share in this time of peace and tranquility which marks the beginning of, what often becomes, a very busy period in our calendar. It is also when we begin to look forward to the coming of the Christmas Light. In the dark stillness of the evening, children light a candle to the sound of gentle singing and music and place it in a spiral. Parents often comment on what a moving festival this is.

SAINT MARTIN’S DAY LANTERN FESTIVAL

THURSDAY 9TH NOVEMBER 2017 AT 17.00 

PRELOVED SALE & CAFE IN THE HALL

15.30 – 16.30

Martin joined the Roman Army at his father’s behest and, though a reluctant soldier, rose to the rank of Tribune within three years. He is remembered as the one who cut his cloak in half in order to clothe a cold and hungry beggar. After this act of charity he dreamt that he saw Christ wearing the half – cloak.

Martin left the army and went to Poitiers to become the disciple of Bishop Hilary. Although Martin would have preferred a quiet and humble life, the people of Tours wanted him to be their Bishop and had to trick him to get him into the cathedral to be consecrated. One story tells that he hid in a goose shed and the people came with their lanterns to find him.

IONA SCHOOL was delighted to participate in World Cerebral Palsy day on Friday 6th October 2017.

Class children raised awareness of cerebral palsy by coming in to school dressed in green.

They also baked cakes (some were green!) and sold them at break time and after school and have donated all the money to Rutland House School for Parents.

They raised a smashing £91.30 in total!

“Michaelmas, Meteoric Iron and the Human Heart”

A TALK BY DR JAMES DYSON

MONDAY 9TH OCTOBER 2017 AT 19.30 AT THE IONA SCHOOL

Free Admission – donations towards this evening’s costs and the developing therapeutic work of the Iona School would be greatly appreciated
Dr James Dyson is in great demand internationally within the anthroposophical movement and is currently teaching and facilitating on several professional anthroposophical training courses, spanning a wide range of medical, therapeutic and psychological themes.

After qualifying as a medical doctor in 1975 he worked in general practice and concurrently studied anthroposophic medicine where his practice, which included general medicine and some psychiatry, continued for nearly 25 years.

During his long and varied career as an anthroposophic physician, James has also worked as a visiting doctor in Waldorf Schools and in several schools and residential communities for children and adults with learning disabilities.

Since leaving Park Attwood in 2003, James has furthered his long-standing interest in mental health and developmental psychology with formal postgraduate training, gaining a master’s degree in Psychosynthesis Psychology.

Having retired from formal medical practice in 2014, James continues to work in an advisory and consultative capacity for several educational facilities and is also extending his life-long involvement in adult education.

Please make every effort to attend what will be an enlivening and enriching talk which will touch the heart of our work here at the Iona School.
