She-Oak Steiner School Initiative – Port Lincoln SA

School initiative – Port Lincoln

We are a small community in Port Lincoln, South Australia working on building a Waldorf school. The initiative commenced in 2018, with a couple of families coming together to share their passion for holistic and wholesome education for the Eyre Peninsula. Since then, the community has grown to include over 50 families from across the region.

We are continually approached by families looking for alternative education for their children; families who feel a real and profound connection to the philosophies that Waldorf education provides. We are therefore hoping to provide a space where children feel safe to grow into the human beings they would like to be, to explore their own worlds and to be cherished for their own hearts.

There is a thriving Board and Parents and Friends committee both working tirelessly to acquire appropriate land and the required funds to open our school doors. As we are solely relying on generous donations, investments, fund raising and family support to raise the necessary capital, we are reaching out to anyone interested in becoming involved to please contact us.

We have set up a crowdfunding page on mycause She-Oak Steiner School Initiative (start up), Port Lincoln SA (

We currently offer a Nature Play session on a Friday morning where families are able to connect with their own children, connect with other families, and explore nature and the simple joys it provides. We have found these sessions provide an excellent stepping stone to where the school will take children on their educational journey.
