Shearwater, the Mullumbimby Steiner School is nestled among the green hills of the Byron Shire hinterland, New South Wales. Established in 1993, Shearwater has grown to a Playgroup - Year 12 school, with an enrolment of over 700. Our beautiful 52-acre site sits in lush rainforest alongside farmland with gardens and a farm working by biodynamic practices. Shearwater offers quality staff education including a mentorship program, ongoing professional development opportunities, artistic activities, workshops, events, and courses.
Shearwater provides a living, integrated education inspired by anthroposophy, in which a focus on the development of the whole human being is supported by a conscious connection to place and time.
Shearwater nurtures the growth of warm-hearted, creative, resilient and courageous individuals who are able to meet the challenges of a rapidly changing world through love in action.
