Applications are invited from individuals with strong leadership and management experience, and a commitment to our Steiner Waldorf special character.

Our school is the southernmost Steiner school in the world. It is also beautifully situated, in a semirural location.
We offer a full Steiner Waldorf curriculum from playgroup and kindergarten, through to the end of intermediate school. The Steiner approach addresses the whole person intellectually, artistically, socially, and morally in order to develop each student’s innate self-discipline and strength of body and will.

We have a diverse, multicultural student population of 100 children from kindergarten to Y8. There are 60 students in the primary school in multilevel classes.
After over 30 years of Steiner education in Dunedin, we are now at one of the most important and exciting times for the school.

  • We have reached our roll cap and are currently building new classrooms 
  • We have constant enquiries from families all over New Zealand, and from overseas  
  • Our school is currently being supported by ERO as we grow into a bigger school requiring more structured systems for internal evaluation, teacher appraisals and analysis of student achievement. 

We will welcome the successful applicant to join our community at this exciting time, to move the school forward, while keeping the Steiner special character at the heart of our work.

The position has some teaching component.
