High School Happenings

From a Steiner perspective, one could say the task of the kindergarten child is to experience oneself living in and surrounded by love. For the primary school child, it is to be guided by love into a love of the world. For the young person in high school; it is to awaken love within oneself toward humanity and the world around them. It’s a beautiful picture of what is first placed around the child(outer to inner), then nurtured within to form a vessel, and then in the teenage years, love is supported in its unique blossoming and unfolding into the world (inner to outer) .
