Last night, Latitude Jewellers hosted the 2021 Young Jeweller Awards and the judges had a difficult task, as 53 high quality pieces of wearable art were contending for only 6 awards.

Congratulations to all students who participated, the pieces plus the intent behind the designs, told stories of creativity through their work as artisans. Thank you to the team at Latitude Jewellers for bringing this gift to our young people Geraldton.

Here at LTSS, we celebrate our dedicated D&T teaching team, Chris and Dan, whose ingenuity and support for the students they teach, enables the students to shine.

And we celebrate our students...

School Lunch Service

Tomorrow the Lighthouse Room Years 5/6 are cooking up a vegetable curry feast for Rivergum Room Years 3/4.
Service is an important virtue that is embedded into the curriculum activities at LTSS and one that makes us feel connected as well as valued.

Enrolments for the Graduate Certificate in Steiner Education at the University of the Sunshine Coast Semester 2 are still open. Classes start at the end of July.

The course is offered fully online AND face-to-face study options - whichever suits you best.

The Graduate Certificate is open to anyone with a Bachelor’s degree in any subject. (The Grad Cert, though is not a teaching qualification).

Who’s the course for? Teachers in Steiner, mainstream and private schools are welcome, as are parents, assistants, administrators, principals, counsellors - anyone interested in deepening their understanding of Steiner/Waldorf Education and pedagogy in a contemporary context. We welcome you to join our dynamic program in July, 2021.

Endorsed by Steiner Education Australia, the 4 courses lead to a Graduate Certificate in Steiner Education or offer the option to continue on into an M.Ed.

FEE-Help is available. For questions about cost, contact [email protected]

If you’re currently teaching, all hours can be counted towards Professional Development. (External, Self-selected - 52 hours per semester if you’re doing 2 courses).

Course structure: online and blended learning: Each course is comprised of recorded presentations as well as engaging, relevant, live Zoom workshops/tutorials run in dual mode (online, or face-to-face) at the same time. Each course also has a 2-day intensive that runs in dual mode.

The Graduate Certificate is delivered by Dr Shelley Davidow, Dr Bronwen Haralambous academics and teachers with international experience in Steiner/Waldorf schools. Guest presenters bring rich insights and conversations to the program.

We warmly welcome you to be part of our program.

Testimonials from students:

'I got so much out of these classes and they are, without doubt, the most rigorous and stimulating I have attended in many years of study. '

'I loved this course…great experience, great teaching and so good to be around like-minded people - very inspirational indeed. The online lectures and blackboard discussions were great too. The assessments were relevant and real life and I know this research is useful in my current career too. Even the readings were great; really enjoyed this whole course.'

‘The online meetings and intensive were great. Overall, an inspiring course and lecturer.’

‘I loved every minute of my engagement with this course. The content and its delivery were superb, and made for an extremely rich and valuable learning experience.’

Last week we had the pleasure of welcoming Jamel who facilitates cultural education programs for students, all across Australia.

LTSS students across the grades were treated to a Bollywood experience which helped create awareness and understanding, both locally and internationally, to promote creativity, connectivity, compassion and citizenship.

Jamal said of her LTSS experience:
"Thank you so much for the opportunity to be at your school. Your students were so well behaved, respectful and attentive. I got some great answers for questions I asked about culture and all students participated with all the stories and dances. Huge thanks to the amazing teachers that also participated and had a great time. I look forward to getting back to your community soon!'.
