Principal’s Welcome

I’m proud to be the Principal of Orana Steiner School; a school with a caring, vibrant community, outstanding teachers and support staff, and amazing, creative students. Orana Steiner School is truly a unique and special place!

Set on 16 hectares in a magnificent natural setting, Orana is an independent, co-educational, non-denominational school that offers a seamless Preschool to Year 12 education. First and foremost, we seek to foster the human spirit; allowing our students to flourish in a holistic learning environment that is oriented towards moral growth, social consciousness, environmental awareness and active, responsible citizenship.

Our school’s philosophy and educational approaches are based on the ideas of Rudolf Steiner, an Austrian scientist, philosopher and social reformer, who founded an international movement of schools which seek to nurture the development of the whole person by giving equal importance to the spiritual, creative, academic, emotional, and physical aspects of each child’s development.

Our curriculum and pedagogy are based on a comprehensive understanding of child development. The natural phases and rhythms of child development guide both the introduction of content and the methods of instruction. We offer a rich balance of academic, artistic, well-being, and practical activities which are rich and deeply rewarding for students. Orana has a proven track record of producing outstanding academic results which place us with the very best schools in Australia.

An Orana Steiner education fosters a deep regard for human values by encouraging imagination, empathy and a rich appreciation of the natural environment and our human interactions and relationships.

Learning at Orana is challenging, enriching and rewarding, and our goal is to provide each child with an outstanding education that lasts a lifetime.

I invite you to explore our Orana website and by reading about the various programs we offer. Better still, why not come and see Orana for yourself – we would be delighted to show you our school and talk with you about what Orana can offer you and your family.
