At Warrah Specialist School, we are committed to providing our students with a comprehensive and holistic educational experience that goes beyond traditional classroom settings. Our innovative outdoor curriculum, inspired by the principles of Steiner education, sets us apart as the only Steiner-based specialist school in Australia. With a focus on individual growth, life skills, and a deep connection with the natural world, we strive to equip our students with the tools and skills they need for a successful future beyond school.

Optimised Learning through Independent Learning Plans

One of the key elements of our educational approach is the use of Independent Learning Plans (ILPs) to facilitate the development of each student. These ILPs are tailored to meet the unique needs and capacities of our students, ensuring that they can achieve their full potential through meaningful and purposeful activities and work. Through close consultation and observation of each child’s specific learning needs and abilities, we create Individual Learning Plans (ILPs) that empower our students to progress at their own pace, and in their own unique way.

Cultivating a Deeper Connection with Nature

Our outdoor curriculum forms the heart of our educational philosophy, as we believe in the importance of fostering a deeper understanding and appreciation of the natural world. Through a range of engaging activities, our students immerse themselves in nature, cultivating a sense of place within the landscape and their community. From weaving and nature craft to bushwalking, gardening, and farming, these experiences serve as necessary companions to the development of literacy and numeracy skills. We understand that the learning environment plays a crucial role in shaping a child’s educational journey, and our outdoor spaces provide the ideal setting for meaningful and transformative learning experiences.

Celebrating Each Child’s Unique Qualities

At Warrah, we deeply value and celebrate the individual qualities that each child brings to our school community. We recognise that everyone has a unique contribution to make in our society and a meaningful path in their self-development. By embracing each student’s strengths and supporting their challenges, we create an inclusive and supportive learning environment where all students can thrive.
