Warrah Special School: Educating with a Difference

Warrah Special School provides a learning environment that is unique in its educational program, supporting students’ learning, well-being and sense of purpose.

The School, founded in 1969, is the only Steiner Special School in Sydney. As a registered, independent Special School, Warrah offers a high quality, individualised education for students with intellectual or developmental disability, from Kindergarten to Year 12, based on the educational philosophy of Rudolf Steiner. Warrah believes that each individual has the right to reach their full potential through receiving a balanced, holistic education. The educational philosophy of Warrah is that every student should have the opportunity to acquire knowledge, appreciation and skills in the arts, humanities, sciences, history and world culture, and the highest possible level of literacy and numeracy. Every student should be educated in life skills to promote independence and selfesteem and to maximise their ability to make a valued contribution in their adult life.

Our beautiful campus and its rural environment encourages peace and calm through nature. Students are able to participate in a range of farming, gardening and other outdoor activities that support practical learning.

Warrah Special School also offers work experience, transition support to the Warrah Youth Discovery program for school leavers and many opportunities for students to contribute to the wider work and life of our local community.

We warmly welcome families with children with disabilities, but also the broader community. Please contact Principal Jan Fowler if you want to visit or learn more about Warrah School.
