Family Favouite Spring Fair at Mount Barker
Each year, the Mount Barker Waldorf School's major fundraising event is their Spring Fair. Organised by the parents of Grade Four, a committee is formed and allocations for various activities are given out to students in each class from kindergarten to Class 12. This has become a strong tradition with the funds raised being invested back into the school. In the past, funds have assisted in financing the music room, gymnasium and Living Arts Centre.

The school is situated on Sims Road, Mount Barker, which is approximately forty minutes-drive from Adelaide. Founded in 1979, the first year was spent in rented church halls in Norwood. Through generous donations of money and land, the school is now built on twenty acres of landscaped land in a semi-rural environment. There are now around 340 students from four years of age to Grade 12 attending the school. The School is a full member of the Steiner Education Australia (SEA), which promotes Waldorf education at a national level.

Leading up to the fair, fruits are made into preserves and cakes are made to be sold at the German Coffee Shop. Work is also commenced on making a wide range of handmade crafts, which capture the imagination of children. You may find the Spring Fair is a time to stock up on early Christmas presents or stocking fillers in readiness for the festive season. Children delight in treasures found while fishing for a lucky dip in the treasure cave.

There will be outdoor games for the older children where skills can be tested, gardening talks, performances on stage, a second-hand bazaar and even a workshop class to learn how to weave a basket. If you are looking for an event for the whole family to enjoy, this is the day for you.
