New school headed for Dou­glas

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS LOOKING BACK -

‘Trop­i­cal North Steiner School Inc’ is due to open in Moss­man, 2019, start­ing with a Prep, class one, two and three.

Steiner ed­u­ca­tion fosters artis­tic en­deav­ours and aca­demic ex­cel­lence whilst hon­our­ing the in­ner life of the child.

We recog­nise that the school jour­ney is as im­por­tant as the des­ti­na­tion. We of­fer a broad, in­clu­sive cur­ricu­lum de­signed to meet the stage of life and par­tic­u­lar qual­i­ties of the stu­dent.

Aca­demic sub­ject mat­ter is pre­sented in such a way that it en­gages and sup­ports the de­vel­op­men­tal phases of child­hood and ado­les­cence to pro­vide sen­sory, so­cial and in­tel­lec­tual nour­ish­ment. Imag­i­na­tion is an in­te­gral part of the learn­ing process, and is har­nessed in every age group as a tool for learn­ing.

En­gage­ment with the nat­u­ral world is en­cour­aged, as is the ac­qui­si­tion of real life skills – with ex­pert men­tors and a deep re­spect for self and oth­ers are a nat­u­ral by-prod­uct of the Steiner in­clu­sive cur­ricu­lum.

Th­ese all con­trib­ute to well rounded hu­man be­ings who are able to ca­pa­bly solve prob­lems and who ex­hibit re­silience, re­spon­si­bil­ity, self di­rec­tion, re­spect for oth­ers and in­tegrity.

We are cur­rently tak­ing ex­pres­sions of in­ter­est. Please email Julie or visit our fb page ‘Trop­i­cal North Steiner School & Play­group.

A new Steiner play­group cur­rently op­er­ates every Wed­nes­day 9.30-11.30am – book­ings es­sen­tial, as num­bers are kept small to en­sure a har­mo­nious en­vi­ron­ment is pro­vided for lit­tle ones.
