08. February 2018 · Comments Off on “Sleep and Daily Rhythms – the Contribution to Learning and Wellbeing” – a Talk by Dr James Dyson on Mon 26th Feb 2018 at 19.30 · Categories: Dr James Dyson Talk, Independent schools Nottingham, Primary schools Nottingham

“Sleep and Daily Rhythms – Their Contribution to Learning and Wellbeing”



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.

04. December 2017 · Comments Off on Advent Festival on Monday 4th December at 5pm in the hall · Categories: Festivals, Steiner education

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.
