News regarding the CWS Lunch ProgramStephen Gilmour, our Lunch Program provider and chef, informed us that he will not be continuing his work at the Calgary Waldorf School this September, 2015. This was a difficult decision for Stephen to make. He has loved his work at our school this past few years, but when an opportunity arose this summer for him to live and work in BC, after much consideration, Stephen decided to make the move.
Stephen has been a valued member of our CWS community for seven years, offering nutritious food and warming our school with the fruits of this labours. We have been very grateful for his wonderful lunches for the children and dinners-to-go for family meals. In addition we have appreciated his contributions to school events such as our Gateways Conference, festivals, meetings, and celebrations. Stephen and his program will be missed by the Calgary Waldorf community.
The notice of this change came late in the summer when many staff and faculty were still away, so we will not be able to have a new Lunch Program in place for this September. Once school is back in session, the Administration, Board, and Faculty will begin a process of review and will look at next steps for the continuation of this valuable part of our school life.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause to you and your children. We will keep you abreast of the next steps once they are clarified. Thanks very much for your patience and understanding in the meantime.
If you have any payments already made to Stephen, please contact him directly for reimbursement. His contact information is on his www.festivaloffood.ca website.
Warm wishes to you in these remaining days of summer.
On behalf of Administration and Faculty,
