Whistler Waldorf School

Whistler Waldorf hosts a variety of school festivals, fundraising benefits and parent community events throughout the school year. Have a look at our calendar to see what’s coming up.

School Festivals

During the year, the school and the Parent Advisory Council coordinate fun festivals to celebrate the various seasons,  which also help with fundraising. Other school events recognize festivals of nature and humanity to help foster wonder, reverence and gratitude. Here are few of the events:

Winter Faire occurs each December before Christmas and is a chance to invite the community to come and enjoy the winter season making seasonal crafts with the children. The school and Field House are decorated with fragrant evergreens and there are a number of craft tables, a magic Cookie House, fresh baked goods, caroling, puppet shows and storytelling. All crafts are in the Waldorf genre: natural, simple and beautiful!

Fundraising Events

School fundraising events are also held during the year and are an important part of the funding mix we balance in order to operate and offer the best possible Waldorf school experience for our families.

Fall Annual Giving Campaign

The Fall Annual Giving Campaign provides an opportunity for faculty, staff and parents to give what they can towards improving the school capital aspects and to join together in a charitable showing of love and support for our school community. Participation and a groundswell of support is our key goal – donations of all sizes are appreciated.

Spring Gala Fundraiser

Gala Fundraiser 2019

The Spring Gala Fundraiser usually occurs at the end of May or early June. This is our biggest fundraiser of the year and is sure to entertain! The event brings together lovers of fine wine and food in a fun adult evening of supporting the school. With over a hundred items donated for both live and silent auctions, bidding is exciting and worthwhile as we raise funds for teachers’ wish lists for the next school year and much more.
