WWS recognized for dedication during COVID-19

Whistler Waldorf has been chosen for Arc’teryx’s Unsung Heroes award. The WWS ‘hereos’ were recognized by a Whistler community member for their dedication to developing distance learning so quickly and wholeheartedly supporting the students and families once the in-class suspension was mandated by B.C.’s Ministry of Education after Spring Break.

The team at Whistler Waldorf was credited “For being so adaptable in a time of crisis. Changing as quickly as possible to an e-learning platform while promoting the feeling of calm and maintaining a rhythm. It seems in character of their mission they are going to great lengths to provide what they can for students at home during this time.”

Rubeena Sandhu, Head of School responded with “Thank you to Arc’teryx and the Whistler community member who recognized our faculty and staff as part of their Unsung Heroes. We really appreciate this amazing honor during this challenging time”.

In April, Arc’teryx had asked individuals to nominate ‘a group or organization of unsung heroes in their community who deserved recognition for giving extraordinary care’ during this time. One hundred  of the most inspiring stories were selected from around Canada and Arc’teryx gifted 10 new Atom LT Hoodies for their contribution and as a token of gratitude -“for these heroes to enjoy when they take their capes off.”
