On Friday, March 27th, our Faculty Meeting took place via Zoom. We have been working with some questions over the past two months in pursuit of our mission as the faculty of South Shore Waldorf School.
In these current circumstances, our work with these questions is more important than ever.
We would like to share these questions with you. Perhaps they resonate in you.
- How do we know when to rely on each other?
- How do we build trust and confidence in each other’s leadership?
- How do we connect with and support each other daily?
- How can we be instruments for each other’s spiritual development?
- How can we infuse our festivals with connection and form?
- How can we serve the school?
- How do we carry beauty into the world?
- How do we create clarity so that we are confident in our roles?
Our faculty met Friday, March 20, 2020 on the last day of our March Break. We are completely committed to being innovative in meeting the challenges we face as a community and providing our students with an excellent education.
One of the advantages of our shared experience is that it strengthens our bond, and frees us to be productive in building up our capacity to acknowledge genuine feelings and connect those to meaningful actions. As a close community we are here to see each other through, not see through each other. The faculty is grateful for the continued opportunity to lead the school community. Logistically there will be challenges, requiring the creative capacity of our full community.
Meeting the needs of each individual class and developmental stage is complex in regular circumstances. In these extraordinary circumstances, we are learning, innovating, and trying new ideas. Not everything we try is going to work. When things do not work, we are grateful for the flexibility we have to try something else, and the patience and humour of our community.
Thank you for your continued patience and support as we respond to what has now been declared a state of emergency.
