St Paul's Steiner

Festivals

Festivals are a way in which the children, teachers, staff and the wider school community, mark the passing of time through each year and the mood of the different seasons. We aim to foster a sense of belonging, at St Paul's, the wider London community but also in the natural world.

Taking part in transitional festivals taken from cultures across the world is an important part of the curriculum, giving students an understanding and respect for the different cultures of the world. Drawing on many traditions, through the festivals we celebrate our common humanity, not our separateness in belief or practice.

Some of the festivals we celebrate include:

Michaelmas

Rosh Hashanah

Martinmas

Diwali

Advent spiral 

Chanukah

Candlemas

Easter

Eid

Whitsun

Nowruz

May Day

Komodo no Hi

St John's
