MEDIA RELEASE

Students from Malamalama Waldorf School recently participated in the Medieval Games at Camp Erdman on the North Shore of Oahu.

This is a hands-on experience of sixth grade curriculum, which studies medieval history in depth.

Students dressed in tunics adorned with hand stitched family crests and were divided into shires (Cheshire, Berkshire, Hampshire and Yorkshire), each shire engaged in four events, archery, jousting (with pillow sacks), stilt walking and conquering a 30 foot vertical climbing wall. Waldorf schools from across the state participate in this annual event, hosted by Honolulu Waldorf School.

Waldorf Education strives to provide experiential learning experiences for its students by utilizing the head, heart and hands while learning, creating real life experiences, allowing the student to live what they are learning.

Malamalama Waldorf School is the only non-sectarian, non-denominational independent Waldorf School on the island of Hawaii offering the internationally recognized Waldorf curriculum.

    Malamalama is the best! The kids are great and the school has excellent teachers. The kids also get full curriculum in the arts and music, and…one to one tutoring is available for free in areas of academics when needed. When I took my husband there for the Spring Fund Raiser he said he wished all schools could be like Malamalama. He really got it and he has 2 upper level degrees in science and sociology!
