Class 9 Reflections

I have been in this school for eleven years now. I started here when I was four and I’ve never been to any other school. I am so sad and heartbroken that the school is closing down, because I’ve met amazing and kind people here. I’ve had the best years of my life here, thank you for sharing it with me. Goodbye students and teachers, I love you all.

I’ve been at Imhoff almost my whole life. It’s like home to me and there’s no place like home. There’s no place I’d rather be. I will miss everybody at the school. I will miss the teachers so much – thank you for teaching me to think outside the box and thank you for being part of my life.

I’ve been at Imhoff Waldorf for two years and I can honestly say that it changed me as a person. I’ve gained so much confidence through these years and I’m so grateful for that. I would like to say thank you to all my teachers for all that they’ve taught me and a huge thank you to my guardians – Bernard in Class 8 and Janis in Class 9.

Thanks to Imhoff I have found the greatest friends. I’ve only been here for two years but it has been the best two years ever. I really wish I could continue my Waldorf education but sadly I can’t. I know that I’m going to send my children’s children’s children to a Waldorf school because I know they’ll be able to express themselves in their own way. My goodness I have such great memories.

I’ve been at Imhoff Waldorf for eleven years now and in that time I’ve done a lot of crafty stuff (even though most were incomplete). I’ve had a lot of Main Lessons, rainbow bridges, a lot of great soccer matches, the Shakespeare experience and all the other Waldorf things. I’m glad I was able to do it all at this school with the most caring teachers and the best friend I could have ever asked for.

My time at Imhoff Waldorf has been fantastic. These past two years have probably been the best years I’ve spent at school. This school will always be in my heart and will never be forgotten. I remember meeting all the people I call friends now. I love and will always remember Imhoff Waldorf.

My time in a Waldorf school has been a phenomenal experience that I will never forget. I joined Imhoff in 2016 and my two years have been good. I met wonderful people who have been more than my friends, they’re like family. I will never forget the camps I’ve been on with my class. The Spring Fairs and all the times Ulric forced me to sing in front of people! I won’t forget the Shakespeare plays. Thanks to everyone who has made my two years amazing. Thanks to the teachers who have dealt with our chatty class and who have never given up on us. I’ll always remember this school. I hope everyone has an amazing 2018 and I wish you all good luck. Lots of luck!

When I first came to Imhoff Waldorf I was seven and in Grade 1. For the first week I didn’t speak to anyone, I just sanded a rock and sat under the jungle gym. In High School everyone was friendly with one another, it was really cool…until we heard the school was closing down. I have really enjoyed my time at Imhoff and I would have liked to finish my schooling here but I’m grateful that I’ve spent 9 years at the best school, in my opinion, in the world.

When I first arrived at Imhoff Waldorf School I was thirteen years old. I met my first friends at the Open Day – Jared, Mango, Sizwe and Ben. I was glad to meet them and I knew that this would be my home. The school I attended before had more students but this school had a good vibe. My first three months were hard for me to settle in because I was not used to the system, but because there were so many kind people I got to understand the work better. I’ve only been at this school for two years but I feel like I’ve been here my whole life. I’m so glad I met such wonderful people and I will never forget any of them.

I’ve been in this school since kindergarten, so I’ve been here a while. Robyn was my teacher then all the kids became such good friends. What I’m going to miss about this school is when I was young pretending that my best friends were my sisters from the same mother but we had been adopted and actually we were all princesses from Spain. I’ll miss class camps, they are such amazing memories. I will miss in Class 7 writing “Gullible” on the roof and no one would believe me. I miss writing our names all over the back of our Grade 7 classroom along with many other classes before us. I’ll miss spending breaks on the roofs in Primary School, throwing pine cones at people walking past. I miss being told stories by older students, who gave us tips on how to pass certain tests and not to leave our homework to the last minute. Class 8 was my favourite year of school with Berny as our guardian. I remember I would often take the curtains down and go to lie on them on the grass hill behind the classroom. I think Imhoff is one of the few schools that has peacocks walking around and our rescue dog Rosie. I’m really going to miss the special connection the students have with each teacher and the personal jokes we share like “1/4 teaspoon” and “What is a Beyonce?” I’m really sad that I can’t finish my education at Imhoff.

When I first came to Imhoff I really didn’t want to be here. I had just moved back to the Cape and I had set my sights on another school. As I walked into the school for the first time I was greeted by two super friendly and excited faced, Aisha & Faith. I immediately knew that we would be close. The first few days I felt out of place, everything was different, everyone seemed to know each other and I had to catch up. Looking back at these feelings now I feel like a completely different person. The people I’ve met and become friends with have been the most amazing support system for me. I store every memory in a special place in my heart. My class have been the best group of people to spend these past two years with and I’ve enjoyed getting to know everyone. I’ll miss this.

My two years I’ve spent at Imhoff have been the best. I’ve learned to be responsible and very ambitious. I met wonderful people with personalities. I’ve grown into someone who is very confident and positive. My friends and teachers have helped me develop a great platform to build my life on. The love and support I got at Imhoff Waldorf will be something I’ll always remember. I’m very grateful I got a chance to experience a Waldorf school.

Class 8, 2016
