Having been given the most incredible education through the Mount Barker Waldorf School (K-12) I feel an immense sense of drive to ensure the EP Waldorf school is born for our children, our community and our future. More than ever I feel the need to protect our children to allow them to become the human beings they were destined to be, through learning with their hands, mind and heart.
Founding board member/Contracted Treasurer
As a founding board member I feel a deep commitment to establish EP Waldorf Steiner School. I am passionate about Steiner education which was ignited when I attended Kindergarten in the Blue Mountains and Aroura Meander for grades R-3. I had the opportunity to gift Steiner education to my son, which was a beautiful experience for him. As treasurer, I keep all the money balls up in the air and serve EP Waldorf School initiative with commitment, integrity and love. I look forward to sharing this unique school with my daughter currently homeschooled aged 7.
Board Member/Facilities Coordinator/Treasurer
l first learned about Steiner Education after having my son in 2018. The philosophies that create the backbone of this educational style are everything I hope to instill in my son as he develops.
When I heard there was a Steiner Initiative being created in the community it was very exciting to know that I could possibly offer my son this option. It wasn’t until recently that I felt the call to get even more involved which led me to my position on the board. Being given this opportunity is something I take with great pride and am committed to seeing it through, lending a hand wherever I can along the way.
Board member/Social Media Coordinator
Before being privileged to become a mother, I worked as a School Support Officer at our local primary school. I was fortunate to spend my last two years running a program that supported our students emotional understanding and gave space to nurture their needs, through developing their connection to self.
I see the need for a space within our community that focuses on uniqueness and individuality in our children and one that celebrates this!
I am wholeheartedly committed to the EP Waldorf School Initiatives growth and establishment. I am passionate about community and connections and I believe in the magic that comes from this.
Board member (Currently on leave of absence
It has been my privilege to work with young children for over 10 years. In these years I have learnt more than I could imagine from these children. Through this, I have also developed a passion for working alongside children to develop a sense of wonder and awe about the world around them, through play, conversations and just being present. I delight in being outside and pursuing learning in the natural world.
I believe all children should have access to a breadth of educational styles, including those who live regionally. It is my hope as a EP Waldorf School board member, that I am able to assist in providing this to the Lower Eyre Peninsula community.
I grew up in Willunga, and attended the Willunga Waldorf school as a founding student, then later moved to Mt Barker Waldorf school to complete my high school education. After school I traveled and worked for a large pastoral company on remote stations in the Kimberly region of WA, before settling back in Adelaide to study Emergency medicine at Flinders university. I have worked as a paramedic for the last 15 years.
I have lived on the EP for 10 years, met my partner here and we now have three beautiful children. Despite giving a lot of myself to my profession as a paramedic, motherhood has been my greatest achievement so far. I’m passionate about community and absolutely love the endless possibility of adventure that the EP provides.
Having experienced Waldorf education for myself I would love nothing more than for my own children to also have this education possibility.
