“Go forth my heart …”

By Eva Wörner, September 2021

“... and seek joy ...” - how the great hall shook when the school community sang this song on the last day before the summer holidays; full of anticipation for a time without the routine of school and full of curiosity for adventures near and far.

A revolutionary heart

By Mathias Maurer, July 2021

Henning Köhler died on Thursday, 8 April 2021. Since October 2009, he delivered his succinct and trenchant texts for the “Kolumne K” column month after month – which annoyed some readers and were missed by others when he had to take a few months off due to illness. [more]

Children’s drawings. A window to the world of life forces

By Raphaela Tampe, February 2018

Children’s drawings tell the story of how children unconsciously move into their body. In drawing, the small child expresses a feeling of those forces which are active in forming the body in the first seven years. Rudolf Steiner calls these biological growth forces life or etheric forces. They build, form and penetrate the physical body and the drawings of the small child are an expression of these forces. [more]

The ukulele. From the presentation of the year project

By Paul Bátkai, September 2021

Hello, I am Paul Bátkai and I would like to welcome you to my year project. The topic I am presenting to you is the ukulele.

The technological Sphinx

By Andreas Luckner, August 2021

There are enviable strokes of luck in publishing: the comprehensive and very readable book by the Stuttgart media teacher Edwin Hübner – Menschlicher Geist und Künstliche Intelligenz. Die Entwicklung des Humanen inmitten einer digitalen Welt (Stuttgart 2020) – was published just in time for the outbreak of the pandemic, even though it is the fruit of decades of reflection. [more]

A riddle

By Ute Hallaschka, July 2021
