A Lumby school is seeking applicants for a new student scholarship, created by The Bridge Educational Society.

The Okanagan Waldorf School is a B.C. independent school that provides early childhood and elementary education from early childhood to Grade 8.

Designed to create a new channel for families in the North Okanagan to access Waldorf education, the new student scholarship is a competitive merit-based initiative presented by the Society’s board of trustees.

For the upcoming academic year, the scholarship will extend to a maximum of five new students receiving $5,000 each towards the school’s tuition.

“The Okanagan Waldorf School is dedicated to fostering an educational atmosphere that celebrates intellectual curiosity, artistic expression, and community engagement,” said Ashley Hockenhull, a trustee. “Through the introduction of the new student scholarship, we are hoping to reach families that may have not otherwise considered an independent school, or Waldorf education, for their child.”

The deadline for submission is on Monday, Aug. 21. More information can be found at

Prospective students and their families are encouraged to come out to the school’s open house on Saturday, Aug. 19 from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m.
