When I first watched this video I had goosebumps because I grasped and felt everything they say. I haven’t been into Acacia Waldorf School (AWS) personally, but by watching it, I feel a connection with it. I have this huge attachment with nature. I really love forest, gardens and parks, more than the beach. So, whenever I see sceneries like that, I feel great. And I see it here, or should I say “I see more of it here in AWS.”
I mean, like, what kind of school besides AWS will you see children learn “odd things”–knitting, sewing, playing wooden musical instruments, creating their own toys, gardening/harvesting, etc. without technologies just like the old days, in today’s world where innovation and commercialism is on rise. Only a FEW right? Because schools now are going towards that direction. Not that it’s bad, but there’s no balance. We were so commercialized that we have this gap with reality. In Acacia, I saw a nurturing community that prepares children to be loving, respectful, free, courageous, and committed individuals, who will become good leaders, artist, educator, and citizens of the world.
I Even “aww” in delight when I had the chance to meet Ms. Trina to present their website. She’s a very passionate and lovely woman. And from that point, I understand why AWS is such an amazing school for children. For more information visit www.acaciawaldorfschool.com.
