Moray Steiner School and Steiner Education, meeting the needs of the future.
In today’s rapidly changing world, many of us are looking for an alternative education for our children. An education which meets the child’s physical, academic and social needs.
The principles in Steiner education support children on all levels, as it is based around the stages of development and not just their age.
To demonstrate this in action, the Steiner Waldorf Schools Fellowship commissioned ITN to make this short film to look at some of the key features of a Steiner School, and to show how it differs from state or other independent schools
- How Steiner Waldorf education nurtures spiritual development in keeping with the cultural setting of the school, and without being tied to a particular faith;
- The emphasis on “doing” to complement academic learning;
- How the absence of testing in the younger years nurtures enthusiasm for learning;
- The importance of quietness and contemplation as part of the school day.
If you have any practical or administrative questions, please contact the school on (01309) 676300 or by email to email@example.com. School tours also take place on the first wednesday of each month at 9.30 a.m. (Please call the school in advance if you wish to to join a tour.)
At Moray Steiner School, we provide a child-centred curriculum which supports the development of well-rounded human beings; young people who become resourceful, creative, responsible and questioning – well-equipped to meet the challenges that the 21st Century presents.
Our teachers work in partnership with parents to create an environment at School and at home that nurtures the holistic development of the child and consciously cultivates qualities of trust, compassion and inner moral strength.
Moray Steiner School, established in 1985 and housed in the 19th Century Drumduan House, is the furthest north of the four Steiner Schools in Scotland. Set on a hilltop, adjoining Cluny Woods, on the outskirts of Forres, the School is located within seven acres of mature trees and gardens, with magnificent views overlooking Findhorn Bay and the Moray Firth.
This education has been in existence for nearly 100 years, and Steiner-based education is currently one of the fastest growing alternative educational models. Currently in 2013 there are over 1,000 independent Waldorf or Steiner Schools in sixty countries across the world, including over thirty in the UK. In addition to this, other state and private schools are increasingly using methods drawn from Waldorf education.
