Are you a passionate and dedicated Teacher or Teacher Assistant looking for a unique opportunity to make a difference? If so, Warrah Specialist School might just be the perfect fit for you! Our independent, co-educational school provides quality and individualised education for students with intellectual disabilities in the moderate to severe range.
Join our Unique and Thriving Learning Environment
At Warrah Specialist School, our leading-edge curriculum offers educational and vocational programs in the Rudolf Steiner tradition of learning, providing a foundation for a life of ongoing learning and growth. Our program speaks to students in a way that engages their interest, fosters teamwork and socialisation, and provides abundant opportunities for initiative, self-direction, and perseverance to be established.
Teach with Reverence
As the only Steiner-based specialist school in Australia, the students, staff, and parents are nurtured by a guiding philosophy that treats each person with reverence. We believe that it is not just WHAT is taught that is important, but HOW and WHERE children learn. Children learn about the rhythms of the seasons and nature in all its forms.
Spend the Day in Beautiful, Natural Surroundings
Our extensive bushland site, which includes a working biodynamic farm, organic farm shop, and bakery, provides a natural environment where students can thrive. Warrah’s outdoor curriculum continues to develop strongly, providing many opportunities to engage students in a range of practical tasks in the world outside, such as spinning and weaving, woodwork, farming, swimming, and cooking. Practical and meaningful activities help students develop a sense of pride and independence, as well as equipping them for a working life beyond school.
Be in a Workplace that Fosters Growth and Development
At Warrah, we believe that the success of our students is closely linked to the success of our staff. That’s why we strive to create a workplace that fosters growth, development, and fulfillment.
