One only realises the value of a Waldorf Education some years after Matric. I'm 27 now, and the past few years have reminded me how valuable an experience my education was. I look back at the creativity, craft, class unity and classroom environment as the key features in making my Waldorf Education a preparation for life.

The hick-ups of growing up seem a foggy memory in comparison to the Class Camps, Drama Plays, Main Lessons, and the Class 12 Projects. My good memories and close friends are still with me today, almost 10 years post Matric. And my career path, as it twists and turns, is supported by the creativity and approach that I was taught at school.

And to think I never realised this during those wonder years!
