Our History

Founded in 1981 and set within unique and natural surroundings, Orana Steiner School now has 640 students enrolled from Pre-school to Year 12 and is an independent, co-educational and non-denominational school in Weston, Canberra.

Using the Steiner philosophy adopted by 1,100 Steiner schools across the world and dating back more than 100 years, Orana champions creativity and individualism alongside academic subjects to offer a unique experience for families looking for an enhanced education within a vibrant learning community. The Steiner philosophy is grounded in engaging students deeply in their learning and connecting them to the natural environment so that they become agile-thinkers, flexible problem-solvers and collaborators.

Distinctly different, Orana Steiner School understands the ever-changing world and exists to support its students to tackle and achieve their personal goals with enjoyment, self-worth and social responsibility, whilst setting them on a path of achievement, fulfilment and success.

An inclusive education at Orana Steiner School inspires students to grow into confident, capable, and creative young people where education lasts a lifetime.
