From The Principal

It’s wonderful to be back for Term 4.  Last term ended on such a lovely high note with the graduation of our 2015 HSC students.  Now the new term has started and we have just welcomed a new set of HSC student into their roles as the senior students in the school.

At the other end of the school, our Kindergarten children will soon start looking through the archway, towards their Classroom for next year.  We are very pleased to announce that we have appointed Prue Ritchie as the Class One Teacher.  Prue is an experienced and skilled Steiner teacher who is looking forward to taking the class on their journey through the Primary School.

Whilst we are on the subject of staff movements.  I am sad to let you know that Joseph and Delaney will be leaving our school at the end of this year.  Both Joseph and Delaney are very sad to be leaving our wonderful school, but both are leaving to take up exciting personal opportunities.  I wish them both well, their expertise, passion and skill will be very much missed in the High School.  We are now actively recruiting to fill these two positions for next year.

Recently a team of parents, teachers, students and administration staff worked together to develop and refine the school’s Mission and Vision statements.  These statements clearly indicate our main purpose and what our highest ideal is as a school.

Mission (why are we here?)
To provide a nurturing, creative and academic education inspired by the indications of Rudolf Steiner for a healthy social life and the developing human being.
Vision (what do we want to achieve?)
To enable each individual to realise their potential to be self aware, resourceful and resilient with the empathy, skills and initiative to make a positive contribution to the world.
Thank you to the parents, staff and students who contributed to the development of these two important statements – they eloquently sum up our purpose and vision.Peace
