SAINT MICHAEL & THE DRAGON
Michaelmas, as it is observed in Waldorf schools, is the “festival of courage”. Michael, the archangel who inspires courage, is associated with this festival time. Through the inspiration of this angelic being, the lowly peasant, George, was inspired to persevere, though the odds were stacked against him, to complete a daunting task, slaying the “dragon”. Our Michaelmas festival includes a performance of the St. Michael play, freshly pressed apple juice and a campus-wide clean-up.
