Chrysalis School has been providing Steiner education in the Bellingen Valley for over 35 years, and from next year it will be opening its doors wider by offering scholarships to families facing financial disadvantage.
The school is committed to providing access to Steiner education for as broad a group as possible and appreciates that a diverse school community adds to the richness of the children's education.
Where class sizes and resources permit, the school will seek to offer a fully paid scholarship for children from families with limited means.
At Chrysalis Steiner School, from Kindergarten through to Class 8, the child journeys through a campus of great natural beauty, developing relationships with people and place.
Students who complete Class 8 at Chrysalis transition to Class 9 extremely well, generally to Bellingen High School, or a number of the independent schools on the Coffs Coast.
Never before have we seen so many Steiner Schools or students in Australia, which is a testament to the approach and outcomes of this way of schooling.
Steiner education is powerful in its conscious approach to developing young people for the future and the school is encouraging all families who are interested in a Steiner education, but have felt it has previously been out of their reach, to contact the school to discuss scholarship options available to them.
