Welcome to Samford Valley Steiner School

A living education for social renewal

Samford Valley Steiner School offers an inspiring and comprehensive education for children from Pre-Prep through to Year 12 in high school.
Our school is located on 20 acres of leafy, natural bushland, in the semi-rural Samford Valley. This picturesque destination is approximately 24km/35 minutes drive from Brisbane, in South East Queensland, Australia.

It is our intention at SVSS to be true to the spirit and intentions of the educational impulses and anthroposophical insights offered by Rudolf Steiner. We are continually striving to provide and develop a curriculum and learning programme that; is inspired by a deep understanding of human development; embraces and reflects the universal values of freedom, equality, peace and democracy; and values diversity and individual worth. All curriculum content and experiences offered to young people during their schooling are purposefully and consciously considered in light of how and when the activity or knowledge will best support the child’s natural development. Teachers at SVSS work to create a school where goodness, beauty and truth permeate the pedagogical, physical and social fabrics.

At SVSS we view ourselves as a community of learners; teachers, parents, and students, striving to achieve individual, communal and global growth and understanding.

We welcome the involvement of parents in our school community. Click here to find how you can join in. Download more information by clicking on the button on the right, or call the school on 07 3430 9600 if there is information you have not found on our site.
