Today we welcomed parents, friends and Board members to join teachers and students at our very ‘special’ assembly. We gathered to farewell Bruce Lee, our Education Administrator of two years. It was a hearfelt assembly!

Pilgrims performed a very special musical treat with lyrics about Bruce that gave us all a laugh and Wayfarers’ harmonies and gestures had us all captivated with their rhythm and timing. Anna spoke of Bruce’s time at the school and I don’t think there was a dry eye in the circle. Parents spoke words of thanks and two beautiful gifts were given. A large handmade book with a wooden cover of photos, drawings, paintings and written notes. His second gift was a large jarrah silver tree leaf made by Pete Ballard.

This was yet another opportunity to come together in a true sense of ‘community’ as it takes a community for a school to grow and prosper as Silver Tree has done.

“A healthy social life is found only, when in the mirror of each soul the whole community finds its reflection, and when in the whole community the virtue of each one is living”
– Rudolf Steiner
