Warrah Special School educates students with special needs from Kindergarten through to Year 12 in a small school setting. A broad based curriculum covers all subject areas and is based on the rich content of the Steiner Schools (Waldorf) Curriculum. We educate with an aesthetic, artistic and immersion approach, using Main Lessons to start each day and having a strong daily, weekly and seasonal rhythm to support focus and learning for each student.
The natural environment features strongly in our educational approach, and is supported by Warrah’s beautiful bushland setting. Warrah Farm, our working biodynamic/organic farm, is woven into each student’s learning through farming, harvesting, cooking and nutrition programs.
Each student has access to a range of therapeutic and other special activities, from Remedial Massage, Bothmer Gymnastics, Music Therapy, Learning Support, and Riding for the Disabled (RDA). Effective Individual Education Planning and open communication with families are central to the success of each students program. Social interaction with students from local schools and access to the local community as well as integrative projects and activities are fostered to enable each student to gain the skills needed to take their place as citizens as they mature.
Warrah School is non-denominational and welcomes students from a wide range of backgrounds.
We endeavour to keep fees to a minimum to ensure that Warrah School is accessible to families.
