Helena River Steiner School in Midland, Perth, is part of a network of Steiner schools throughout WA and Australia. Every Steiner/Waldorf school is independently formed and operated and thoroughly unique, but part of a big and conscientious “family” dedicated to educating modern children according to the developmental and pedagogical principles described by Rudolf Steiner. The first Steiner/Waldorf school began in Germany in 1919, with the goal of developing morally responsible, integrated individuals with a high degree of social competence and independent thinking. There are now more than 1050 independent Steiner/Waldorf schools and nearly 2000 kindergartens worldwide.
Steiner education provides a curriculum which has withstood the tests of nearly a century and continues to bring children what they need, at the right time, with the right balance of arts, academics, physical and social learning.
