~ Welcome ~

Ghilgai School, at the foot of the Dandenong Ranges in the outer eastern suburbs of Melbourne, provides Rudolf Steiner education for children from playgroups through to Class 6. The school’s secluded bush setting is a sanctuary for childhood.

“Steiner Education strives to ennoble the mind
And to fire the imagination;
to fortify the will
and to quicken the initiative for life;
to sow such seeds as may produce new vision and discovery
in the years to come:
not to mould the mind
but to enable it to grow to new dimensions.
Thus it serves the present for the future
and awakens the motivation for lifelong education
and self-development.”

— Francis Edmunds,
innovator in Rudolf Steiner Teacher Training, Emerson College, UK.

 

We offer regular opportunities for parents to discover more about Ghilgai.

~ Our Vision ~

Ghilgai Steiner School reflects the values of Steiner Education. We endeavour to educate the children holistically via a balanced curriculum in a safe and nurturing environment, one which fosters clarity in thinking, depth in feeling and strength of will, so that as adults they will be able to contribute to society as creative, ethical and responsible citizens.

At Ghilgai, we strive to build confidence, initiative and responsibility, seeking to maintain a balance between the growth of the individual and that of the group entity. We actively work towards an accepting and compassionate community which is founded on a harmonious union between school and home.

 

Pocket Sized Pieces of Wisdom

 

Just a few meandering thoughs whilst roadtripping from Eden back to my little home town ~ with the windows wound down, sun kissing my forehead, wind in my hair and music saturating my soul…
Its always during these golden moments that stories seem to want to pour out from every opening of my creative body – and l do my best to lightly flit around on the tips of my toes, trying to catch as many as l can with my dream catcher net & fairy jars – yes, just like the ones that the BFG uses…
Wishing you all an exceptional New Year. Year of the loyal Earth Dog.
With all of my heart, make it the BEST one by far!

Play hard, love deeply, travel far.
Grab you life with 2 hands
& shake the shit out of it.
Give yourself completely
& pour cups of tea for others
~ & then spend the same
amount of quiet time
sipping on your own…

Move your body
& make things with your hands,
push creative boundaries,
triple down on your strengths
& be brave enough
to be
honest & vulnerable
by sharing your stories…

Be humble,
be elegant,
discovery your unique ways
to be beautiful inside out
& back to front

Live with integrity,
believe in quality,
keep trying every day
to be the best version
of yourself…

Be spontaneous,
jump on a plane,
run around naked somewhere
& say yes to new adventures
which probably freaks you out
a little (or a lot) ~
but they remind your heart
that you’re alive!

Constantly put yourself
in other peoples shoes,
be kind to others
& remember to be
even kinder to yourself.
You are so much more than
just a reflection in the mirror
staring back at you.

Breathe blood,
sweat tears,
work your ass off for things
that truly matter.
No one else
should be your voice
& tell you which things in life
are important, nor matter.
So find you feet,
figure out what’s important
to you & go do that!

Keep fear seated
at the back of your bus,
never the driver.
And for fuc’s sake,
do not live ur life
as if you were
an untouched couch covered in plastic?!

BE YOUR OWN INSPIRATION

And this years epic learning curve
is to wish myself
& for all others
to constantly check in
& ask oneself ~
Does this Soul
add value to my life?
If Yes – Fling your arms wide open,
give unlimited time,
connect with curiosity
& be excited to share…
But if it’s No?
Then its a beautiful smile
& a polite side step to the left.
Wish them well, wave them goodbye
& carry on giving to others
& soaring to high places
that your working towards
& dreaming to be… © January 9 .18
