DAY 2020

Early Childhood and the Primary School


The Secondary School

International Baccalaureate 
(Year 11 & 12)


When we were planning the calendar for 2020, we were filled with optimism about our annual events, rolling the dates over from 2019, then Covid struck and threw everything into chaos and changing the school year into a listen, watch and act event. It has been a year that has required great creativity and flexibility and an adapt and survive approach.

This weekend would have held our annual Spring Fair and Open Day, the highlight of our school calendar, and an opportunity to visit our beautiful grounds, savour the festive atmosphere, and experience the qualities of our unique school. As we are unable to welcome visitors on-site, we invite everyone to take a virtual tour through our classes beginning in our Morning Star Kindergarten and journeying through the Primary classes. The tour will give an insight into the Class Teacher period and the exceptional relationship that is established between the Class Teacher and child over the six years of primary school, journeying through the different stages of child development.

The Secondary School Tour will take you through our secondary classes, explaining how the Steiner curriculum (Australian Steiner Curriculum Framework) builds on previously learned concepts, encourages critical engagement, creative thinking, and develops the ability to wrestle with complex ideas. The Main Lesson structure of the day integrates academic work with fine arts and ideal preparation for Senior Secondary and undertaking the International Baccalaureate Diploma in Years 11 and 12.

At the end of this journey, the students of Mansfield Steiner School stand with confidence ready to step out into the world as purposeful global citizens. Enjoy our virtual Open Day.
