our vision:

To provide a purposeful, integrated and holistic education that will inspire children to work creatively and achieve to the best of their individual ability.

Our highest endeavour must be to develop free human beings who are able of themselves to impart purpose and direction to their lives. The need for imagination, a sense of truth, and a feeling of responsibility - these three forces are the very nerve of education.
— Rudolf Steiner

 

 

 

 

 

our Mission:

To establish a modern co-educational and non-denominational Steiner school for children, irrespective of their social, religious or cultural background, which:

  • Provides an inspired and engaging learning environment where students learn concepts and skills at a time that is developmentally appropriate;
  • Builds a strong academic foundation which focuses on the balanced development of intellectual and cognitive faculties, artistic and imaginative capacities, and practical life skills;
  • Nurtures attributes of curiosity, creativity and capacity, ensuring children are equipped for today’s world as morally responsible global citizens;
  • Delivers learning content in a way that caters for each individual child, drawing on the natural environment and working with the child's unique temperament. 
  • Strives for a respectful, safe and nurturing environment for all who learn and work at the school.

Our teachers will work to nurture a sense of reverence for life, curiosity about the world around us and a life-long love of learning. Students will be encouraged to work cooperatively and to find identity, meaning and purpose in life by forming connections with their community and the natural environment.

Human development and human relationships are at the centre of this, incorporating values of trust, respect, compassion, empathy, responsibility and care for each other and our surroundings, which are intrinsic to the functioning of our school environment.

In a traditional academic model, the time allotted to learn something is fixed while the comprehension of the concept is variable....What should be fixed is a high level of comprehension and what should be variable is the amount of time students have to understand a concept.
— Salman Khan, The One World Schoolhouse: Education Reimagined
