Eurythmy for adults at Iona School-starting February 2016.

Classes will be held on the following dates:
Monday 22nd & 29th February and Monday 7th & 21st March (in the German room next door to Class 4/5)
Tuesday 15th March (in the hall)
All sessions last 1 hour and begin at 7.15pm
Contribution per person per half term: £25

I will be using Steiner’s meditation for eurythmists and one as yet unchosen poem as well as a star-chart developed by the Theodor Schwenk Institut, to anchor our eyes firmly in the movements of the planets and the zodiac.

The nature of the work requires commitment. It is not a drop-in drop-out session. For the sake of continuity, everyone needs to be present as much as possible at each session.

Please let the school office know if you would like to join the class by emailing: admin@theionaschool.org.uk

Bet wishes,
Fynn Stirm

14. January 2016 · Comments Off on James Dyson talk at Iona School: “The Life Processes as the Hidden Factor in establishing Resilience during Childhood” on Thurs 21st Jan 2016 at 19.30 · Categories: Dr James Dyson Talk, Junior schools nottingham, Steiner education

“The Life Processes as the Hidden Factor in establishing Resilience during Childhood”
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.

Come and support The Basket Brigade Nottingham at Iona School this Saturday 12th December, 10 – 4pm, Iona School hall

Dear all

Every year Iona School generously supports Basket Brigade Nottingham and this year it is needed more than ever.

We are supporting two special causes this year; Young Carers and Asylum Seekers.

There are 250 young Carers in Nottm, children aged from 10 years who care for disabled or seriously poorly parents. We would like to give as many as we can a big Thank You from their community.

There are FOUR ways you can help:

1 Donate a gift of food (no alcohol or perishables) which you can leave in our box in Reception… (Why not pass the information on to people at your work place & bring everyone’s gifts in this week!)

2 Donate a present for an adult or any age child – please wrap & put a label saying what it is and/or the age/gender it’s appropriate for (which we can remove)

3 Donate CASH via www.localgiving.com/indigobraveland
And GIFT AID your money!!

4 Come and volunteer on Saturday 12th December, 10 – 4pm, Iona School hall. Even an hour at anytime is helpful – and it’s great fun! Sign up at: www.Facebook.com/basketbrigadenottingham

Notts TV are coming on Saturday to film, which is also great publicity for the school!

Many, many thanks for supporting the Basket Brigade Nottingham again this year.

Much love
Laila & the Basket Brigade
