Our School History

From Humble Beginnings . . .

Casuarina Steiner School commenced teaching from its current location in Gentle Street, Coffs Harbour, in 1991. This followed more than six years of hard work and dedication from parents, friends and members of the community to establish a permanent site.

The land was purchased in 1989 and the Main Hall was designed as a temporary first stage to house three classes. By 1996 stage two was complete, with two purpose-built classrooms. Enrolments were around 60, with three composite classes covering years 1/2, 3/4 and 5/6/7.

Since that time the structural development of the school has continued to where we are today, with six Primary School classrooms, two Kindergarten classrooms, a space for our Parent and Child Group, a Woodwork room, a Music room, a Library and the Admin building – all set within beautifully landscaped grounds. Our school is big enough for healthy single stream classes and small enough for every child to be known and cared for by all staff.
