Sydney Australia's Glenaeon Rudolf Steiner School's Community Relations Officer, Paulette Kay, is now back in Sydney's Middle Cove after a visit to Bali in January that included handing over AUS$1,250 (approximately US$932) for educational resources and scholastic sponsorships - all part of a sister-school relationship with the Bali Hati Foundation's Taman Hati School in Ubud.

Paulette told "As a Steiner Waldorf School, Glenaeon endeavors to balance academic excellence with the development of moral, creative and physical skills: an education of heart, mind and will. We see our sister school relationships as a means of supporting this, as it develops a global citizenship sensibility within our students that fosters empathy and understanding of the peoples of the world."

In addition to help extended to the Bali Hati School, the Glenaeon's Sister Schools Scheme also includes assistance to the Vietnam Children's Project in Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon), Vietnam, and indigenous teachers' educational workshops at the Alice Springs Steiner School.

Bali Hati Project

Work on the Sister School relationship in Bali included meetings with members of the Bali Hati Foundation - Nick Disarna, Spa Hati Manager; Wayan "Rusti" Rustiasa, Development Manager for the Bali foundation; and Made "Yuli" Yudiana, School Supervisor. Paulette also met with Marilyn Carson, Schools' Projects Officer for Rotary Ubud who coordinates the Sydney school's assistance to Bali Hati.

The program sees money raised by students at Glenaeon support student scholarships in Bali. Because funds are all raised by students, the actual sums donated may never be large. Undeterred, however, Paulette was able to work with Rotary Ubud's Past-President Asri Kerthyasa to link Rotary Chatswood, a near-neighbor in Sydney, with the Bali Hati Project. As a result,Rotary Chatswood approved an AUS$1,000 (approximately US$745) donation to Taman Hati earmarked for educational resources.

Currently in the process of an ongoing review and evaluation, Taman Hati School recently appointed educational consultants, Dawn Weidemann and Jennifer Anderson. Dawn told Paulette that she and Jennifer were "looking forward to learning more about how Steiner Waldorf schools operate and how the teachers work with the students in different cultural environments."

Paulette said: "It was a most rewarding visit and since my return I have been sharing my experiences with the staff, teachers and students at Glenaeon who are all keen to develop this new and wonderful relationship."

The Taman Hati School

Founded in 1999, Bali Hati's first kindergarten class of 44 students was comprised of children entirely from low-income families in Bali. Each successive class now has an average of 22 students with 5 students from upper income families now allowed to enroll in the school's much-praised curriculum of classes.

Using creative play as an integral part of their teaching process, the school also incorporates Montessori and Steiner principles to its students now enrolled in its Grade School program.
