Our School - About Us



Milkwood Steiner School is a non-denominational, independent school offering a primary level education from Kindergarten to Class 6 based upon the educational philosophy of Rudolf Steiner.

Our school delivers a nationally accredited Steiner Curriculum, an alternative to the Australian and Northern Territory Curriculum Framework. Our school is a fully accredited and registered educational institution and is a proud member of Steiner Education Australia and AISNT.

We acknowledge the traditional owners of this land, the Larrakia people, who share with us the land for which they have cared and handed down for many thousands of years. Upon this land we built a school blessed with community, culture, story and song.



The ethos of Milkwood Steiner School is the strength of the school. It reflects the curriculum and delivery of education within the school. The virtues of love, reverence and selflessness bring the wisdom to work and grow together. The ethos of Milkwood encompasses the following:

I. The principles of Anthroposophy

II. Community development

III. Respect for all

IV. Best practice schooling

V. Consensus within decision making processes

VI. Collaboration

VII. Fairness and due process
