The new website details the work of Camphill School Aberdeen and provides information on admissions, voluntary work at the school and ways that people can help the work of the school, which is a registered charity.
Commenting on the new website, Daniel Harrison, a co-worker at Camphill School Aberdeen, said:
“This year we are celebrating the 70th anniversary of the foundation of Camphill here in Aberdeen. In recent years there have also been many significant developments at the school. We realised, therefore, it was time that we developed a web presence that reflected the life of the school now.
“Camphill School Aberdeen is internationally recognised as a centre of excellence in providing integrated education, care and therapy for children with complex special needs. The school offers a comprehensive programme for 88 pupils from three to 19 years old.
“Along with the story of Camphill School Aberdeen, the new website presents the innovative work currently being undertaken with our Nature Nurture Project, the St Andrew’s Project and our holistic pre-school education in Amber Kindergarten.”
Camphill School Aberdeen is one of seven Camphill charities represented by Camphill Aberdeen City and Shire. In all 700 people live and work in these centres in the Aberdeen area.
The first Camphill community opened its doors on June 1, 1940 at Camphill House in Milltimber, Aberdeen. From that initial community, the Camphill Movement has now grown to 100 centres, with 10,000 people in 23 countries.
