A wonderful opening of the Galway Steiner National School

On Tuesday September 1st, 2015 Galway Steiner National School proudly opened its doors to our first class of junior infant children. We are so happy to finally have a Steiner National School in Galway. It’s going to be a great year ahead.

On their first day, the children arrived to take in the new surroundings, and rest upon the carefully selected wooden tables and chairs, and crafted playthings, lovingly worked by hand over the previous months. The children settled in to enjoy free play, storytelling, beeswax shaping, games and drawing, amongst other activities. Time was spent getting to know their new fellow classmates and their teachers, Shane O’Connell and Rachel Conneely. After all the recent work and preparation in advance of term, this autumn is exciting time to see the children arrive to play and begin their journey through their early school years.

We wish to express our heartfelt thanks to all those who have so kindly given of their time, energy and enthusiasm over the years to make this dreamed of school a reality. We thank each and every one of you!
