Your only clue as to what’s going on in the photo below is that it’s taking place in a Steiner school setting.
Got it yet?
Nope, they’re not demanding more Eurythmy lessons. And no, they’re not looking for the nearest SWSF official or Steiner critics to vent spleen on.
It’s actually the annual Steiner Olympics at Michael House Steiner School, 2008 vintage. Hopefully their costumes are fireproof..
Unfortunately the 2008 pics have disappeared from the school’s website since this post was published but fiery pics of the 2009 school’s Olympics can be be found here. (edit since at least 4th Feb 2012 the pics are now published privately on the Flickr site pointed to)
Most likely they aren’t, fire-proofing would entail adding something “unnatural” to the cotton, wouldn’t it…
It looks just as ridiculous as eurythmy, if you ask me…
