Nurturing Inspired Learners
We are a progressive, independent school initiative based in the northern Shoalhaven offering holistic, experiential and outdoor learning that is child-led and grounded in Nature and Community.
We cultivate a culture that supports children to develop compassion, creativity, connectedness and curiosity using holistic, open-ended, place-based and self-directed pedagogies. You can read more about our educational philosophy here.
Our goal is to provide children with an education that encompasses their whole ecology - place, community, culture, family, head, heart and hands. They leave us empowered to shape a sustainable future and create their place and purpose in the world.
We teach and learn using the NSW Syllabus of the Australian Curriculum. What makes us different is how we teach it.
The working group are seeking to connect with anyone in the community who is interested in making this school a reality. We’d love to talk to potential landowners, advisors, mentors, financial donors and people willing to contribute specific knowledge to pedagogy, school administration, management and fundraising.

We acknowledge that our First Nation peoples are, were and always will be custodians of the Country on which we live - may we walk lightly upon it. We pay our respects to elders past, present and emerging, for they hold the memories, wisdom and hopes for our shared futures.
