Escola Jardim do Monte (a Waldorf School in Portugal) needs a classroom for the nine grade. Let's make it possible!

In 2004, a group of teachers who developed a teacher training course based on Waldorf Pedagogy in government schools, since 1991, decided to open a Waldorf kindergarten.

The idea was to help children to develop learning capacities, within their global development in harmony with the rhythms of nature. A farm containing a biodynamic project was chosen as the school home under the umbrella of an association HARPA, recognized by the Education Ministry as a Private Institution for Social Solidarity – IPSS.

In 2007 a group of children for the 1st class was gathered and in 2011 the primary school from the 1st to the 4th class has been officially inaugurated: Escola do Jardim do Monte.

Since then the school has grown, covering up to the 3rd school cycle in Portugal (7th, 8th and 9th year) following the Waldorf curriculum, accepted by the Education Ministry.

Next school year starting in September 2017, we will open our first  9th class group. To receive it we have yet to create a new classroom. For that purpose we have to accomplish some rebuilding work in our space, for which we badly need financial help to accomplish what is necessary to do, to maintain the physical ecological quality of the whole school.

Being, up to this moment, the only Waldorf school in Portugal which offers a kindergarten and 9 years of basic school, our aim is to prepare the youngsters to reach the secondary school, with self confidence, autonomy, creativity and love for learning, with a deep feeling of respect for the earth and for humanity, as the essential qualities for the twenty first century citizens.

The generosity of all who find a meaning in our work will permit us to reach the aim we would like to accomplish in behalf of the future.

In the name of Escola do Jardim do Monte and all the pupils, who are and will be with us, we would like to express our gratitude.

    Gratidão!

    Caros amigos, que já fizeram uma contribuição para a nossa campanha!

    Estamos muito, mas muito felizes e gratos pela participação de cada um de vocês. Já atingimos 33% do nosso objetivo e acreditamos que mesmo faltando apenas duas semanas e 1 dia para o fim da campanha, ainda será possível angariar o valor necessário.

    Esta campanha simboliza mais do que a criação de uma sala de aula. Simboliza a união entre todos nós, que acreditamos na transformação social e humana a partir da educação. A proposta da Pedagogia Waldorf é educar para a liberdade e plenitude na vida e foi apontada pela UNESCO como sendo o modelo de pedagogia capaz de responder aos desafios educacionais de nosso século. É por isto que esta campanha simboliza mais do que a criação da Sala do 9º ano.

    Estamos unidos em prol de um objetivo maior, que é preparar as nossas crianças para o mundo em que vivem.

    Em Portugal, ainda não há nenhuma escola Waldorf com o 9º ano, sendo a Escola Jardim do Monte a primeira a oferecer esta oportunidade aos nossos adolescentes. Isto é um grande passo! Não apenas para a escola, mas para nós - Portugal - como uma nação unida por um futuro mais consciente e feliz.

    Do fundo do coração, agradecemos a cada um de vocês, pela contribuição que fizeram. Mas não termina por aqui! :) Estas duas semanas que restam para o fim da campanha será tempo suficiente para alcançarmos o objetivo se continuarmos a acreditar e convidar os nossos amigos e familiares mais próximos a fazer uma contribuição. Não importa o valor, importa a participação!

    Contamos com todos vocês para nos ajudarem a fazer um último apelo!

    O link para partilharem é este: https://ppl.com.pt/pt/causas/harpa

    Um grande abraço em nome da Escola Jardim do Monte!
