This evening, a well attended group of parents and members of the community met with Shane O’Connell, the new principal teacher of the Galway Steiner National School. The room was packed to capacity, and following a brief history to the school, outlined by Lindsay Myers, Shane O’Connell took the floor and outlined his own background and vision for the school. His talk was followed by a questions and answers session, where parents expressed their enthusiasm of the benefits of Steiner pedagogy generally, and several details of the school were discussed in more depth.
We look forward to keeping everyone updated on the next busy two months, and be sure to get in touch if you wish to help out in any way.
Meanwhile, for those who couldn’t attend, Shane spoke on Keith Finnegan’s Galway Bay FM Radio show earlier today. The seven minute interview is well worth a listen.
