Grade 12


THEME: Ultimate powers of synthesis and focus on world consciousness

Twelfth graders gain perception in their thinking. From their new-found sense of individuality they are capable of finding their place within the community. Their consciousness of self expands into a world consciousness. They are able to use their powerful thinking to see the world from many vantage points and, at the same time, to recognise their own. As they begin to understand the complexity of the world, they seek to understand the individuals who are responsible for working with society’s issues. In this way the learners will define their own points of view, make judgements, and define their ideals.

The culmination of the Waldorf Curriculum is the Class 12 Play and then the Class 12 Project. Both of these are major undertakings and occupy the first 9 months of the year.
