Happy wedding anniversary!

Instead of presents for wedding anniversary

Event date: 1st October 2016

Birgit Vollm is raising money for IONA SCHOOL ASSOCIATION

My story

We are celebrating our 10 th wedding anniversary on 1.10.16. As for our actual wedding we have, instead of donations, chosen two charities close to our heart for you to contribute to.

The Iona School is one of a few schools based on Waldorf (Steiner) education in the UK. This type of education is far less known in the UK than in other countries and we are lucky to have one of these schools in Nottingham. It aims to provide children with a well-rounded education which places emphasis not only on academic achievements, but more so on fostering a love of learning, independent thinking, social development, self-confidence and practical skills. Our girls go to the Iona School which is a blessing for us as it reflects our values more than other schools we have visited. E.g., they don?t have to wear uniforms, have vegetarian school meals and are not subjected to questionable tests from an early age which merely serve to place the school into league tables rather than benefit the learning of the individual child.

The school aims to offer education to all children regardless of background; practically, however, as they are not supported by the state, they have to raise school fees though they are more modest than for other private schools. The school therefore relies on additional donations. Funds raised in addition to school fees will allow the school to keep these reasonably low, thereby nor further perpetuating the class system of education whereby only well-off families can afford a good education for their children.

Thank you for checking out my page. Making a donation is fast, easy and secure thanks to Give as you Live Donate. They'll take your donation and pass it onto IONA SCHOOL ASSOCIATION.
