Term 4 Week 2
When from the depths of soul
The spirit turns to the life of worlds
And beauty wells from wide expanses,
Then out of heaven's distances
Streams life-strength into human bodies,
Uniting by its mighty energy
The spirit's being with our human life.

From The Calendar of the Soul by Rudolf Steiner

Enrolment News

Hello Everyone,

We have a couple of great virtual events coming up. The Prospective Parent Information night via zoom on Thu 14th Oct, 7.30pm and the Kindergarten Information session on Thursday 21st of October at 7.30pm.

For Kinder families we recommend attending both sessions to receive the Kinder specific information as well as the bigger picture of Steiner Education at our school.

Enrolments for Three & Four Year old Kinder are being finalised. This is for children with a birth year of 2018 & 2017.  Prep places for 2022 are almost finalised too.

Future years – Our Enrolment process for children with a birth year of 2019 begins in early 2022 and we encourage those interested families to join the above mentioned events to receive all relevant information. Waitlist numbers for entry into the school for future years are very healthy. If you are considering enrolment at CSSK, particularly into our Early Childhood programs please submit an Expression of Interest Form and make payment of the Application Fee as soon as practical.

Take care everyone and looking forward to seeing you all onsite across Term 4.

Warm regards, Tracey. Traceyr@cssk.vic.edu.au

Prep News

“Spring is here, here is Spring,

Fairies dancing in a ring.”


This Thursday 14th October we will be singing and dancing to welcome Lady Spring, as part of our Spring Celebrations in Prep. Our Spring Festival will be celebrated as part of a normal Prep day. Unfortunately, families are not able to join us. We will begin by decorating our Spring garlands with flowers. Could each child please bring a basket of flowers to Prep on Thursday morning. We will wear our garlands for our special Morning Circle. Morning Circle will be followed by a Festival morning tea. I think there will be cake!!

We will also have a very special Puppet Play at Story time. The children were very pleased to see each other after the holidays and settled back into our rhythm beautifully.

Warm wishes, Heather



Masks for Children

We have a beautiful selection of reusable masks available in the Office foyer. Come in (with cash) and take a look through.


Cricket anyone

My rates are $12.50 for one child, and $16.00 for two children.

If you would like to meet with me first, before I do any babysitting that is fine.

Kind regards, Yuma Deacon
