Thinking's fruits spring ripended in the sun That shines within the soul; Into the certainty of self-awareness All feeking now is changed. And i can sense with joy the wakening Of autumn's spirt; Winter will arouse in me The summer of the soul.

Term 2 Week 2

Dear Families,

                                Welcome back! Our students have returned bright eyed and bushy tailed from the holiday break and we are delighted to be offering a range of engaging activities this term.

Firstly, I would like to make mention of the Wellbeing initiative that has begun this week with Sonja Kelly. Our school was successful in attaining federal funding to support student wellbeing in our school over the next five years, allowing us to expand Sonja’s employment.

Sonja is available to provide opportunities for students to engage with her on a voluntary basis throughout the course of the week. Yesterday, children were observed at play times baking and modelling in clay while conversing with Sonja and each other in a welcoming and safe environment, conducive to positive social and emotional health. We are so pleased to expand our support services to students in this way.

Bushwalking has begun in earnest with our first group setting out yesterday on the Cape to Cape Track with their teachers and trusted guides from Cape to Cape Explorer tours, who have been working with us for several years. There are extended walks and camps afoot for some classes.

We have also welcomed Nature Conservation Margaret River onsite today, to discuss our continued collaborations with them in our Adopt a Spot location.

Eurythmy classes recommenced today with Julie Vivian Williams accompanied by Anna Bogachova on Piano. This unique offering in Steiner schools brings a variety of integrated educational benefits to students and is beautiful to observe.

I hope that some of you are able to join our P&F friend raising activity in the hall tonight, free yoga and sound healing. How wonderful!


Warm Regards,


AGM Reminder – Important Notice

A reminder that the Annual General Meeting (AGM) of Yallingup Steiner School Inc is to be held at 6pm on Tuesday 30th April 2024 in the School Hall (or via zoom).

Attendance at the AGM is a great way for you to be updated on strategic projects and the ongoing growth of the school and its role within the community.  For the AGM to take place, it is essential to have a quorum of members present.  This means the 2024 meeting requires at least 34 members to be in attendance or via proxy. 

If you know you cannot attend (in person or online) you may have your attendance registered via a “Proxy”.  Proxy forms are available at the school office or on SchoolStream where you will be able to nominate another person (association member) who will be present, to represent you.  Without making quorum the formal business of the AGM such as endorsing annual reports and electing new board members cannot occur, because the meeting will not be able to take place.

Most parents become members of the Association when enrolling children at the school.  If you are unsure if you are a member, please contact the school office.

The meeting notification was emailed to the parent body on Wednesday 27th March, and reports and the zoom link to the meeting have been uploaded to SchoolStream, where you will find them under ‘AGM Documents 2024’.

Please get in touch with the office or the Secretary at if you require any further information.

Board members and staff will be following on for dinner at Caves House and all are welcome to join.  If you do wish to join us, please RSVP to Jane Watts at before this Friday.

Look forward to seeing you at this year’s AGM.

If any changes to the schedule need to be made, they will be communicated directly by your child’s class teacher. 

As many of you are already aware, our bush walking programme is incredibly rich and varied.  Giving children the opportunity to experience nature speaks directly to our curriculum and our philosophical orientation to education. 

Please take some time to prepare your children for our weekly walks and make sure they have suitable bush walking gear (inclusive of a change of clothing) and wet weather protection.  (See attached list for suggestions.)

Please also provide a morning tea and lunch filled with sustenance that is easy to transport.

Class 5: A picture of Ancient India

There is a Spirit which is pure and which is beyond old age and death; and beyond hunger and thirst and sorrow.

This is Atman, the Spirit in man.

All the desires of this Spirit are Truth.

It is this Spirit that we must find and know: Man must find his own Soul. He who has found and knows his Soul has found all the worlds, has achieved all his desires.

                                                                                                                                                                                                              Chandogya Upanishad

During the first term the children of Class Five listened to stories of Ancient India and Persia. Following the daily rhythm of the Main Lesson with an extension to the skills formed over the past four years. Now instead of retelling the story through movement and speech the children practice their note taking skills, recounting the key facts of the story and then writing their own recount developing skills in drafting, editing and rewriting work.

The children have sourced their own information on India looking at the geography, weather and brief ancient history before we moved into the story telling of the Upanishads including Brahma the Creator, Shiva the Destroyer and Vishnu the Preserver. The we delved into the myths of Krishna and the epic Ramayana. To complete our Indian experience, we enjoyed a wonderful Indian feast which was the highlight for all.

C6 Geology excursion to Talinup/ Augusta

Class 6 travelled south to Augusta on their first day of the term to wrap up their geology lesson. We started the day with a tour of the tallest lighthouse on mainland Australia. It was a beautiful day with stunning vistas, seeing the southern and Indian oceans meet.

We continued our journey by observing ancient tufa and stromatolite formations at Quarry Bay and fossilized megafauna at Mammoth Cave.

A big thanks to Molly for joining us on the adventure.
