We are delighted to introduce our new Principal, Kelly McBurnie, who is set to infuse our school with a fresh dose of enthusiasm, experience, and a touch of Queensland sunshine!

Before joining us at Cape Byron Steiner, Kelly made her mark as the principal of Cairns Hinterland Steiner School, where she brought innovative ideas and a genuine passion for Steiner education.

With a master’s degree in educational leadership, she brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to our community.

But that’s not all! Kelly also boasts an impressive stint as the Head of the Speech and Language School at Mancel College in Brisbane. Her background in speech and language development and special education, adds an exciting dimension to our already vibrant curriculum.

Kelly’s journey in education has been as diverse as the students she will be leading.  From the lush rainforests of Cairns to the bustling city of Brisbane, her leadership has touched the hearts of many, and now it’s our turn to benefit from her experience.

With a penchant for creativity and a deep appreciation for nature, Kelly aligns perfectly with the Steiner philosophy. She believes in nurturing not only the minds but also the spirits of our students, fostering a love for learning that will last a lifetime.

When she’s not busy inspiring our future generations, you might find Kelly exploring the local Lennox Heads markets or taking a dip in the crystal-clear waters of our beloved coastline. Her love for the outdoors mirrors our own appreciation for the natural beauty that surrounds us.

As we usher in this exciting new era at Cape Byron Steiner School, we extend a warm welcome to Kelly McBurnie. Her boundless energy, innovative ideas, and commitment to Steiner education promise to take our school to even greater height.

So, keep an eye out for the rays of sunshine she’s sure to bring into our lives – both literally and metaphorically!
