Waldorf education is committed to providing every child who enters its doors an Education Toward Freedom. We value the head, hands, and heart of each child. We provide outstanding education from Arts to Sciences, and Math to Eurythmy. Now it's time to ensure our building is just as outstanding, and it starts with our roof! Our lovely school roof has been leaking for over 15 years and it can no longer be patched anymore. We are saying "No More Band-Aids!" We want an awesome roof for our amazing children. And because we've had a generous offer of subsidized solar panels to take our building right into a greener future, we are going to make this new roof solar ready. If we exceed our fundraising goal, the remaining proceeds will go to a new Solar Power System!
Here at our beloved Vancouver Waldorf School we have some repairs and maintenance that urgently need to be addressed. At the top of our priority list this summer is repairing our aging roof. This past winter, though it was mild, brought enough rain to see drips in the classrooms. This is not ok! After many years of patchwork fixes and spot repairs, we are now at a place that this will no longer suffice. We need a new roof!
Replacing our roof is the first step we are taking to convert our campus into a green learning space. We have plans to reinforce areas of the roof, so that if we surpass our fundraising goals, we may install solar panels! Come autumn, all are welcome to join the Green Team, a newly forming committee dedicated to envisioning future possibilities and taking right action to make our campus eco-friendly. This is our commitment to our students and to the earth.
Be a part of this new vision for our school and help support us raise the necessary funds to take this first step and Raise the Roof!
