Mission Statement


“Our highest endeavour must be to develop free human beings, who are able out of their own initiative to impart purpose and direction to their lives.”


Helena River Steiner School aims to provide education based on the principles of Rudolf Steiner to children and families in the Swan Valley.

We will do this by:

  • Fostering the healthy unfolding of each unique individual in a creative, nurturing and respectful community.
  • Providing a curriculum and pedagogy appropriate to the developmental stage and needs of the learner. We educate the whole human being in thinking, feeling and willing through learning experiences which engage the head, heart and hands, guided by a sense for goodness, beauty and truth. We seek to inspire love of learning, curiosity for life and moral engagement with the world that will carry on throughout the lifespan.
  • Striving to engender care, respect and reverence for the natural and spiritual worlds.
