Nene Kindergarten Playground
Mahalo to our generous donors who made the next phase possible!
Haleakala Waldorf School has received its second nature playground this summer. A play-structure for the Nene Kindergarden was built from locally grown keawe wood from the Waihe'e coastal area.
Under the guidance of the GermanKinderspielkunst-team, woodworking artists and play-ground experts, the Nene play-structures were designed and built throughout the summer. Mahalo also to the generous donations of HWS families!
Our High School has begun a second year!
HWS proudly acknowledges a time of growth as we make our principles and values real and tangible! Our school was started in 1972 with four teachers and 50 students, down in Wailuku Union Church. In 1976 we were fortunate enough to obtain the lease to our current site out of 300 applicants. We look back and commemorate the efforts of our founding parents, board members, and teachers. They made a leap of faith that has resulted in the beautiful and strong school we have today. We look back to our history, to the philosophical underpinnings of the Waldorf method, to the mana of Haleakala, and to our own values. What strengths do we want to carry forward to the next 40 years? With the opening of our Waldorf high school last fall, we have already made a long standing wish come true! Applications are being accepted for grades 9, 10 & 11 for 2014-2015; please click on the "high school" section at left to find out more.
