To all Friends of Raheen Wood & Mol an Oige Steiner Schools, CountyClare, Ireland

Dear All,
We have now received letters from the Irish Department of Education and Science informing us that Minister Mary Hanafin has decided to grant provisional recognition to the proposed Raheen Wood and Mol an Oige Steiner National Schools with effect from 1st September, 2008.This is an historic moment in the 21 year old path of Steiner Education in Ireland, and it is significant for the worldwide Steiner Waldorf movement as a whole that another sovereign state has today agreed to recognise what we bring to the education of young minds and hearts.As is the norm for new schools, what has been granted intially is provisional recognition, in this case for one year. The question of permanent recognition is considered then when the Department is satisfied that the long-term viability of the new schools has beendemonstrated. At Raheen Wood, an All School Meeting on 28th February will consider the question of acceptance of the Department’s offer.
