The Grade 12 class of the Vancouver Waldorf School are fundraising for our Year-end trip in June, 2014.

As part of our curriculum, we spend a week each year volunteering at local charities or working with local businesses or organizations on a volunteer basis. As part of our graduation programme, our class is planning a trip in June 2014 to volunteer at Ruskin Mill College in the UK. The Ruskin Mill Trust operates a number of facilities in the UK for children and adults with complex learning and behavioural difficulties. You can see more about the organization on their website:

We will be working on Ruskin Mill Trust’s 100 acre site, which includes a working farm, ancient woodlands, fish farm, market garden, historic mill buildings and craft workshops. They will work on a practical land based project, have a day working with the Farm team, assisting them with their regular daily routines of caring for the animals and work on the land, and enjoy a half day craft session in one of the beautiful craft workshops

During the second week we will visit Dubrovnik, Split and Zadar along the Mediterranean coast of Croatia and enjoy a trip to Plitvice Lakes national park.

Our programme requires that we raise all of the money for the trip on our own. We are a small class of 6 students, which has the benefit of lowering the overall cost of the trip, but also requiring a fair amount of fundraising from a small group.

To reach our goal, we are exploring a number of fundraising avenues. We have, for example, worked together to make over 1,500 beeswax candles that we will be selling at Christmas fair and at the Red Door Store, and we will be hosting a fundraising event in March 2014.

Please contact our class guardian, Lucien Power, if you have any questions or comments, or simply if you would like further information. Lucien can be reached at 1-604-889-0242 or by email at
