“There is a paradox. As children, most of us think we are highly creative; as adults many of us think we are not. What changes as children grow up? Organizations across the globe are competing in a world that is changing faster than ever. They say they need people who can think creatively, who are flexible and quick to adapt, yet most of the time, they say they can’t find them.”
— Sir Ken Robinson
Most schools offer an education system that was designed for 19th Century industrialism. It was not designed to develop everyone’s talents but to promote those with certain abilities, in the interests of the industrial economies they served.
Our children’s future, both economically and culturally, lies in a different direction. In order for them to succeed in the 21st century, we will need to provide them with an education that prepares them to be creative, flexible and innovative adults.
Kamaroi Steiner School offers a unique education that is based on a balanced approach to learning. Alongside a very high standard of academic education, our curriculum places great importance on imagination and creativity and fully engages feelings, will and intellect. It is designed to instill confidence in self and provide a sense of social and environmental responsibility.
Based on the Steiner principles, we offer a nurturing environment to address the changing needs and capabilities of children at each stage of their development. Our methods of teaching ensure deep and rounded learning.
A Foundation for Life
Our mission, and its underpinning values — Connection, Initiative and Imagination, influence everything we do at Kamaroi School. Most importantly, they are brought to life in a curriculum that integrates the arts, practical experiences and narrative-based learning, alongside strong academic teaching. This results in fully rounded individuals, not only with a solid academic education, but also with self-confidence, resilience and capacity to impart purpose and direction to their lives.
Kamaroi School and its community, offers a vibrant and happy place to be. We look forward to welcoming you.
Imagination: bringing thinking to life through imaginative teaching and learning within a culturally rich, integrated curriculum which balances academic, artistic and practical learning experiences.
