Every Parent Should Consider a Steiner Education. In general, a Steiner student is confident, has a deep respect for the natural world, and is a problem solver. They also have empathy towards others and are self-directed. They look forward to blazing their own path trusting in their abilities and talents.

The rate of change in today’s society is rapid and our children’s future is uncertain. Because of this, today’s students need to be set up for success to solve tomorrow’s challenges. Fortunately, a Steiner education is made for modern times.

What is Steiner Education?

We base the Steiner education on building human capacities, with over 100 years of evidence-based research and findings. The overall goal is to awaken the innate human capacities and passions in each student. In turn, these will support them to become balanced, responsible, innovative and self-aware citizens.

Additionally at Cairns Hinterland Steiner School, we offer the broad and integrated curriculum that fosters a passion for learning, critical thinking, creativity, connectedness and positivity. The curriculum is both progressive and holistic. Along with this, we make sure to account for the needs of the whole child – academic, physical, emotional and spiritual. This is also known as the head, heart and hands – which meets each child at their developmental phase to optimise learning. Plus we are interested not only in their learning but also their wellbeing.

At Cairns Hinterland Steiner School, Students Experience:

  • A strong bond between teacher and student
  • A learning environment nestled in World Heritage rainforest
  • Beautiful indoor and outdoor learning spaces
  • Small class sizes and excellent support services
  • All classwork and materials provided

We welcome parents and carers. They are an active part of the community.

Experience Our School

Our Annual Spring Fair will take place on Saturday 28 August 2021, from 10.00am – 2.00pm. 

The day will include musical performances from our students featuring our string soloists, ensembles and choral performances, delicious food stalls, and games and activities for the children.

The school also showcases our student’s schoolwork from throughout the year. This includes displays from early childhood, primary and high school, which will demonstrate how the Steiner principles of ‘head, heart and hands’ manifests in students’ academic and holistic development. Overall, the creative, artistic and aesthetic approach to all school work will become immediately apparent as you enter our School Hall and see the displays from across the class years.

The Spring Fair is a wonderful time to visit Cairns Hinterland Steiner School. It’s the best time to take a look at the school community that you and your family can be a part of. Visit our Facebook page to keep up to date about this event.
