Welcome to the 2018 Class Teacher Curriculum Intensives.

The Intensives begin in 2018 on Sunday evening with the first lecture at 7pm and before this will be the Introduction Course and Interest Groups 2-6pm, registration 1-2 and 5-7pm. We are happy that the work with the deepening of the Steiner Curriculum can continue. Please do not forget to bring notepaper, a camera, coloured pencils, crayons, recorder, ruler and geometry equipment. Also, as we have an earlier afternoon finishing at 4pm on Wednesday to go to Collaroy beach for a swim and dinner, it would also be good to bring swimmers and a towel.

The timetables are up and Resources will be put up again over the next few weeks.

Participants Joining Several Groups

Could all those people who have booked in hoping to move around groups and make an individual timetable please contact me before the intensives on peggyd@glenaeon.nsw.edu.au

We need to coordinate this for room size and numbers in each session as well as giving advice to those new to Steiner Education. This needs to be done before the intensives begin.

Facilities

We usually have around 140 or more people booked in to the intensives as well as some attending only lectures. There is parking on site down along the driveway and on the courts but please do not park in Glenroy Ave or Greenfield as these are small and/ornarrow streets and our agreement with neighbours precludes the school using it for general parking. If you can’t find a spot inside the school we suggest you park where shown on the attached map. Those parking on site for the day will need to leave by 8pm and those going out for dinner and returning to accommodation will need to be back by 8pm or park away from Glenroy Ave (as shown on map) and walk in quietly.

Please note that Glenaeon School is an alcohol- free area and there is no smoking on the school grounds. There is also an 8pm curfew, with no noise allowed for neighbours after that time.

The buses stop along Eastern Valley Way and there is a laneway/stair through from the bus stop to nearly opposite the school gates.

The accommodation option is strictly only available for 50 people in total because of bathroom and room limitations. Those staying need to bring their own bedding, pillows, sleeping mat (we will have the thin blue camping mats available as an additional mat), towels and insect repellent.

Accommodation will be available in the high school building and hall mezzanines from Sunday-Thursday night only. The hall has bathrooms with showers and a kitchen, fridge for self-catered breakfasts and dinners and a foyer with a veranda and BBQ overlooking the bush area for eating. The High School building has showers, toilets and a small kitchen for breakfasts.

The gate will be locked by cleaning/security just after 11pm. A key will be kept by an on-site staff member and a designated participant staying on site- for those driving to the harbour or the beach for a swim early in the morning. Returns by car after 11pm will need to park in the street. Those wishing to go to the beach very early will need to make an arrangement with the key holder.

The kitchen in the hall is open from 6.00am for breakfast for those staying.

Morning and Afternoon Tea and Lunch are provided for all participants. The caterers will need the hall kitchen from 8.30 am until 5.00pm. The hall kitchen will be used for dinner preparation after 5.00 pm by those staying. The high school building will have a small kitchen area adjacent to the library for breakfasts.

Each evening there will be an opportunity to order from Top Speed Thai at the office before 4pm and this will arrive at 6pm down at the hall. Personal arrangements for pizza orders in groups can be made.

Internet and Phone- Library

The library will be open and staffed for photocopying and wifi access between 8 and 8.30 am and at lunchtime and afternoon tea. There is a phone available also.

School Office

Airport buses for Friday can be booked from the phone at the school office. Urgent messages can be passed on from the office and will be put on the message board in the hall.

The Rudolf Steiner Bookshop will attend during the week from Tuesday-Thursday for sales and Friday for pre-arranged pickups only. They will be at the school on Tuesday and Thursday lunch and the afternoon after the last session from 5.30-6.30 for more relaxed browsing, on Wednesday they will be open at morning tea and lunch.

Noticeboard/Special Interest Groups

The noticeboard in the hall will have the timetables plus any messages from the office. Please put a list and suggested time for any network group you would like to set up on the noticeboard also.

Registration

Sunday Evening

We will be at the school down in the hall at the end of the driveway from 3-6 pm on Sunday for registration and accommodation arrangements. Those arriving after 9.30pm must let us know prior to the intensives and when arriving should speak to those staying in the hall mezzanines to arrange their accommodation for that evening.

Note that the gates will be closed from 11pm and entry will not be possible.

Monday Morning

The administration staff will be on the veranda/hall entrance from 7-8.30am on Monday for registration of those unable to come on Sunday.

Each morning except Wednesday will start at 8.30am in the hall with a time of singing together. We feel that this is important and the lecture will start as the singing finishes.

First Aid

There is a First Aid cabinet available in the hall kitchen and in the library kitchen. During the day there is a first aid officer in the school office

Ticks

There are ticks in Sydney generally, and they live in the bush and grassy areas around the school buildings. Ticks can carry harmful pathogens and cause severe allergic reactions. Please do not sit on the grass (without a picnic rug) or walk in the bush unless you have informed yourself of the risks and have taken protective measures including closed in shoes, long trousers and long sleeves and repellent. Various repellent types of differing strengths are on the market but you should check that it has an APVMA number and is noted as a repellent for ticks on the label. At school we generally use ‘Mosi-Guard’. Further information will be supplied at the school.
