Welcome to Shearwater, the Mullumbimby Steiner School
Shearwater, The Mullumbimby Steiner School is in Arakwal Country, cradled by the green hills of the Byron Shire hinterland. Shearwater’s 52-acre site, which incorporates a working biodynamic farm, is bounded by Mullumbimby Creek to the south and the changing face of Koonyum Range to the west.
Shearwater has a colourful history. From its humble beginnings, in 1993, in the garage of one of its founders, to an extensive campus on the site of a former dairy farm, Shearwater has grown to a double stream K to 12 school of more than 620 students, with playgroups and a registered Preschool, as well as a working farm and Trade Skills Centre.
Shearwater is committed to the continued development of a ourishing school based on the teachings of Dr Rudolf Steiner. We strive to honour the unique spirit of each child, cre- ating a physical, social and spiritual environment in which to cultivate that child’s inner life of imagination, creativity and enthusiasm for academic challenge and physical activity. Teachers at Shearwater work with a deep and broad curriculum to create an education- al environment that addresses the developmental changes of the growing individual; they strive to provide a balance in intellectual, emotional and practical education. The creativity and joyfulness of healthy children is encouraged through an artistic approach in all areas of the learning program.
I place myself steadfastly into existence.
With certainty I tread the path of life.
Love I cherish in the core of my being,
Hope I place in all my doing,
Confidence in my thinking.
These Five give me strength.
