Letter from Jonathan Angus:

Dear Friends, as you may have heard, the Irish Government has approved the applications for two new national schools, teaching the primary curriculum using the methods espoused by Rudolf Steiner. This is exciting news, and it marks the beginning of a new phase of development for Waldorf education in Ireland.
