Are you looking for the right school for your family? To learn more about whether this is the right fit for your family, you’re welcome to call us for a chat, come along to one of our events, or arrange a time for a personal tour. A school tour offers a great opportunity to get a feel for the environment of the school, see the children’s work, and chat with students and teachers.
How the enrolment process works
Following an initial conversation, families are invited to submit an Expression of Interest form and supporting documents, including a Developmental Profile which gives us greater insight into your child’s strengths, needs and learning journey. There is then a formal enrolment interview for you and your child with their prospective teacher. If we are able to offer a place, we then contact you with the official enrolment documents and make arrangements for your child’s orientation.
Fees are billed at the beginning of each term and include all materials, student excursions, special events, all camps, sporting events and equipment, and all musical equipment. Sibling discounts are available.
Some frequently asked questions
What year groups do you cater for?
In 2021 we are offering Pre-Kindergarten through to Year 9. Our secondary school will be extending year by year with the first group graduating from Year 12 in 2024.
Do you have places available?
2021 sees the establishment of extra classes to accommodate for demand in the lower grades and, yes, we have places available in all grades except Pre-Kindergarten.
How big is the school?
We now have just over 130 students from Pre-Kindergarten through to Year 9. Most of our classes have 15-20 students.
Do you have composite or same year classes?
Through the early years of the school we have had composite classes, but as of 2021 we will have stand alone classes for the Years 1, 2, 3 and 4. We also will have two mixed-age early childhood classes each including both Kindy and Pre-Kindy students. The upper classes will remain as composites for some time – Years 5 and 6 will go standalone in 2022, 7 and 8 in 2023 and so on.
Do your children have inter school activities?
Yes. We connect with other Steiner schools from upper primary onwards, generally several times a year for camps, sporting events, and other shared activities such as incursion days.
What about accelerated learning for gifted children?
Our teachers are experts in differentiated learning and we support children to grow in their areas of strength. We differ from mainstream schools in our approach by emphasising well-rounded development and working with special capacities of childhood rather than hurrying children towards ever higher levels of achievement.
