Welcome from the Head of School
Shearwater was founded with a spirit of innovation and possibility; the learning program steeped in the principles of delivering an education for this time, about this place, that meets the needs of this community. This contemporary and culturally relevant approach is an important feature of a Shearwater education, animated by a creative spirit that has flourished through almost three decades of growth and learning.
Today, we continue to foster initiative, learn in community and strive for sustainable living. This is a learning village where people can explore, experiment, take risks and challenge themselves. Students have opportunities to make genuine contributions to the Shearwater community—preparing them to contribute their individual gifts as they go out into the world.
At Shearwater, we see every student as an artist, scientist, carer, leader and contributor. Our School is a vibrant, hopeful place where young people are supported in their learning journey by committed staff who understand the needs of developing human beings.
I welcome you to join us and be a part of the Shearwater story.
