I did not know it at the time, but my time at CCSS would facilitate a strong positive direction in life. There are many fond memories of baking bread with Jos in Kindergarten, listening to Jonathan’s amazing stories, and singing and using my body to learn. I was also very lucky to have the opportunity

The past 14 years of my two children attending the school from Kindergarten right through to Year 10 has been such a wonderful experience, not only for my children but for myself and our family as a whole.  It has left such an imprint on our psyches, our spirits, our hearts. We will always considerI have been so proud of the fact that we were a part of the CCSS community receiving positive and praising feedback about my daughter and son throughout their growing up, from a range of people from both within and outside of the school.  This includes also teachers and staff of the secondary schools they both transitioned to in Year 11. Here they have done and continue to do well.  My daughter graduating from Year 12 with a tremendous result including one of 20 state wide awards for Design and Technology. They have grown into the very fine young people that I had hoped for and more. It was for this very reason that I chose to take the Steiner journey. For our family it was a decision that I have never regretted for one moment.I can only repeat what a wonderful journey it has been.  Thank you to all.

I’m sure Leo would be delighted to be with you forever. He has had such a wonderful experience with you that it is a rather bittersweet transition that we must make. As you’re well aware the first ten years of a child’s life are the most formative and we feel absolutely blessed to have had

Patrick, Parent

The students are all very happy, creative and well behaved.  Students always smiled when anyone walked past and seem to treat each other very well and with respect.I loved how ideas were formed instead of pushed onto the students.  You can tell there is a lot of reflective practice, which I consider quality teaching.

Miriam, Student Teacher

I would rather come to school than have weekends or school holidays.

Ben, Year 6

I started Steiner 2 years ago, discovering new friendships, new amazing teachers, new ways of learning and even a new awesome bus driver.  I loved the out of class experiences especially the freedom that we experienced with nature at our camps. The massive wrestling match in the lake was heaps of fun.  Really enjoyed being

Noah, Year 6

I find it hard to explain what this school is like to people who haven’t gone through themselves, but when I try to, three words come to mind:  friendship, family and love.  I will miss all the crazy memories we have shared together as a family and these memories I will never forget.  Thank you. 

Luisett, Year 10

I was just reading the article on the NAPLAN results. As a Steiner parent, I obviously don’t hold with the whole rote learning and teach to test philosophy of the main stream education system. These results are almost a vindication for us as parents, to see how strongly we performed…My main reason for sendingI just wanted to encourage Rosemary and all the CCSS staff…you all do an amazing job…I love my kids being at the school, the care is second to none and now it’s proven that the education is first rate.

Nigel, Parent

The social skills of these teenagers astound me. It is clear these kids are supported and nurtured. They are inquisitive, communicative and eccentric young people.  Not without their individual difficulties, but the general level of respect and attitudes are really admirable.The quality of the teaching I have experienced first hand here has really impressedAfter teaching and experiencing CCSS and the culture of the school; Steiner education certainly has definitely captured my deep attention.

Rebecca, Student Teacher

All in all we could not have wished for a better primary and secondary school experience and Central Coast Steiner School has exceeded our expectations in many areas.We feel our son has grown and developed into a ‘well-rounded’, confident and strong young adult with definite leadership qualities and the skills and knowledge to pursue
