2021 Summer Program at IWS

Island Waldorf School’s Summer Program is founded on the principles of Waldorf education. We aim at providing a balanced experience of doing, feeling and thinking in a way that stimulates (unplugged!) fun, creativity and a sense of well-being. Our thoughtful mix of indoor and outdoor activities will create a gentle rhythm that nourishes the child’s developing coordination, cooperation and creativity.

Each day will be a joyful journey through imaginative play, circle games, songs and stories. There will be time for focused activity and free and creative play each day. We will spend lots of time outside in nature or on walks.

Children aged 3 to 7 will enjoy a harmonious environment where rhythm and structure encourage opportunities for play and artistic activities, including songs, games, water play, storytelling, puppet shows, crafts, woodwork, pottery, beewax modeling, watercolour painting, and more!

Summer class will be led by experienced Waldorf teachers who speak English, Cantonese, and Mandarin. Student to teacher ratio will remain below 1:10.

Update: Delicious vegetarian lunch will be provided daily at no additional charge. Students may also bring their own lunch.

The great outdoors, right here in Hong Kong!

Every Wednesday we will spend the whole morning in a nearby park filled with green grass.

Every Friday we will spend the whole morning at a beach, so that children can enjoy swimming in the cool waves and playing in the sand under a tree.

Summer doesn’t get much better than this!

Healthy snacks = Healthy minds

Little people need lots of energy to grow. Every day our teachers would prepare fresh fruits and make yummy baked food with the children’s help right in the classroom.

Breathe in, breathe out

The steady rhythm of expansive activities and quiet attention is vital in helping children integrate their external and internal experiences. This value is reflected in the comforting routines in a day, in a week, and in seasons at Waldorf schools.

For example, at our summer program, each day the younger children enjoys a peaceful rest after lunch. This gives them the time and space needed to digest the activities of the morning and a short break from social interaction.
