23. June 2016 · Comments Off on Invitation to a talk with James Dyson on Mon 4th July at 19.30: Will and the Hidden Secret behind Child Development” · Categories: Dr James Dyson Talk, Independent schools Nottingham, Primary schools Nottingham

You are invited to a talk by Dr James Dyson on Monday 4th July at Iona School at 19.30 for 19.45.

“Will and the Hidden Secret behind Child Development”

“Boredom, lethargy, cynicism and hate versus enthusiasm, motivation, respect and love . . . Which four of these would you aspire to for yourselves and for your children? – Well, the answer is self-evident and so, at least within certain limits, is the why; but in the ‘how’, the mystery of the life of will is embedded. Is this mystery a function of the brain, the liver, a spiritual inspiration, or is it a synthesis of all three? However understood, the magic of the will is clearly the best kept of all human secrets!

In this talk, James Dyson will offer a picture of how the will connects to sense impressions in childhood, translates these into soul experiences and emerges as the hidden unifying secret behind biography! James will be drawing on an anthroposophic understanding of psychology and physiology and indicate how these two aspects of the human being function as a dual unity within the threefold human organisation in health – and how illness may arise when their mutual coherence is lost.”

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.

Best wishes,

Richard Moore, for The College of Teachers

15. June 2016 · Comments Off on SWSF kite mark of quality awarded to the Iona School Nottingham · Categories: Independent schools Nottingham, Inspection, Iona School Alumni, Nature, Play, Steiner education, The Land at Iona School, The Learning Land Project

The Steiner Waldorf Schools Fellowship is delighted to award its first Quality mark to the Iona Steiner School, Nottingham. This Quality Mark adds to the recognition gained through the judgement of “Outstanding” Iona received from its recent formal inspection. The SWSF Quality Mark, however, is intended to signal qualities over & above those indicated by regulatory inspection. The mark recognises the school’s ongoing work to maintain & develop further its high standards of education & care for children & young people. It takes into account innovation based on key Steiner principles and those things that make Waldorf education distinctive. We are pleased to be able to acknowledge the practical way the school works with combined classes, the good use of the outdoor space in an urban setting & the considerable contribution made by the school & staff members to the fellowship of schools.
