The Saltwater School welcomes Warren Lee Cohen, author of The Art of Baking Bread, an experienced Waldorf teacher and director of teacher training at the Rudolf Steiner Centre in Toronto.

Cohen will lead two events this month in Courtenay, each showcasing how Waldorf education can foster a deep love of learning.

On Aug. 20, children and parents are invited to join Cohen in a hands-on workshop from 10 a.m. to noon, exploring how the process of making bread feeds the soul as well as the body. The workshop will be followed by a potluck lunch at which participants will share their baked creations.

For more information and registration, contact Karen Alexandre at karenalexandre@shaw.ca.

The second event will be a presentation entitled Education for Life in which Cohen will reveal how Waldorf education blends the use of artistic approaches such as painting and movement with the teaching of academic subjects like math and science.

It happens Aug. 25 at the Saltwater School at 2311 Rosewall Cres. in Courtenay. The evening will begin at 6:30 with refreshments and a tour of the renovated school building, followed by Cohen’s presentation at 7:30.

The school will welcome children Sept. 6 and will offer Waldorf-inspired education in the parent and tot program, mixed-age kindergarten, and Grades 1 and 2.
