Our School Prospectus
The vision of Casuarina School is to nurture the children in the spiritual, artistic and intellectual environment of Rudolf Steiner Education.
We endeavour to educate head, heart and hands in every child so that a harmony in all three may be achieved as the foundation for balanced and free human beings.
The children are encouraged to be innovative and are guided towards self responsibility while being mindful of the rights of others.
The Enrolment Process
The first stage of the enrollment process is to contact Casuarina with your family’s details. This can either be done by phone (02) 6651 2770, email or via our online contact form.
Please read our Casuarina Steiner School Prospectus. If you can’t download the prospectus, please contact the school and we will post you a copy.
Book into a school tour or an interview with our school principal. This session will inform you about the education Casuarina School offers and provides the opportunity to ask any questions you may have. It’s a good idea for both parents/carers to attend this session and if you want to bring your child/children that’s a good idea also. You will see the classes in operation and probably see the students at play.
As soon as the Enrolment Application along with supporting documents has been received, you will be booked into an interview with the prospective class teacher for each child. At the interview, the class teacher will explore your child’s development to the present time and the capacity to meet your child’s needs.
The teacher will then advise if there is a place for your child and negotiate a starting date that suits everyone best.
On payment of the Enrolment Fee your child is ready to start at our school. He or she will be provided all necessary class materials (at no additional cost, except for any musical instruments).
The school maintains waiting lists when either the child is too young to be assessed for enrollment or the relevant class has no vacancies.
An $80 per child non-refundable fee will apply for placement on the waiting list. This does not entitle the child to enrollment.
Assessment of the enrollment must still occur when the child is of age or a place becomes available.
Fees and charges are reviewed by the Board annually.
Our love, reverence, and respect for childhood is reflected in our collegial community of teachers; a diverse mix of seasoned professionals and those who are relatively new to teaching in a Steiner setting.
Currently we have no vacancies at Casuarina, but please continue to check back from time to time in case an opportunity arises.
