Our School

Our school was founded on April 21st 1975 with a kindergarten and 2 school
pupils in small church hall rooms. 

From small beginnings we have grown  into a school of over 400 pupils from kindergarten to year 13 in Opawa, Christchurch.

Our pervading ethos of quality is reflected in the enlivening architecturally designed buildings, the interrelationships of pupils and adults and the creativity of work presentation.

 The Head, Heart, Hand maxim epitomises the balanced learning approach.

Truth, Beauty and Goodness are inner qualities that we aspire to live and learn by.
 
The school  became a fully state funded integrated school in 1989 and balances a  Steiner curriculum with all the achievement objectives the New Zealand Curriculum Framework. The Education Review Office regularly  visits
the school.

The last few years have confirmed a high level of academic acumen throughout
the school. In 2011 the school achieved an above average NCEA results in
Canterbury, following high scores in the international PISA study of 15 year
olds in Numeracy, literacy and problem solving and higher than average PAT
results.
As a result the school has become very popular and many classes now
have waiting lists. 

Although Steiner schools have a European cultural heritage, we embrace and
actively engage in Te Reo and the cultural life of an education in
Aotearoa/New Zealand.
