Steiner school to stay for good at Agnes Water

AGNES Waters' first Steiner school will open at term one, 2017.

For more than ten years a Steiner Playgroup has run in Agnes Water, with more than 20 families getting involved.

As the area has grown in population, Goora Gan Steiner School president Melissa Thomson said there was a need for a new school.

The school, which received its accreditation this month, will follow the Steiner Australia Curriculum, which achieves the same outcomes as a mainstream school.

Committee president Melissa Thomson said they would operate out of the Old Community Hall until they had enough funding to build and open their own facility.

"Now we're going to take our time make sure everything is in place," she said.

"It's very exciting, there's been a lot of hard work so that has all paid off."

They hope to enrol between 15 - 30 students for the first term, and are looking to hire teachers now.

The alternative education was established more than 100 years ago.

They are taking enrolments now.
