TROPICAL NORTH STEINER SCHOOL WELCOMES YOU
A Head, Heart & Hands Approach
Steiner education is holistic; integrating and balancing the development of intellectual, artistic and imaginative capacities and practical life skills. Its ACARA recognised curriculum endeavours to educate the ‘whole’ child, producing well-rounded, capable adults who are ready to face a changing world.
The Tropical North Steiner School initiative was birthed from a desire to give children in the Douglas Shire access to participate in the fastest growing independent education system in the world.
In 2018, the Non-State Schools Accreditation Board approved TNSS to open in Mossman, Far North Qld, beginning with Prep to Class Three and continue to grow naturally each year.
TNSS will offer a broad, culturally inclusive curriculum designed to meet the stage of life and particular qualities of the student.
The school will use the Australian Steiner Curriculum Framework, recognised by ACARA (Australian Curriculum, Assessment & Reporting Authority).
There are over 40 Steiner schools in Australia and more than 1100 Steiner schools operating in 60 countries around the world.
We currently offer a Playgroup, which operates once a week during the school term. Bookings essential.
