Chrysalis means golden home and, like all cocoons, it implies a delicately protected place for growth and development.
Chrysalis Steiner School is located in the beautiful Thora Valley, near the township of Bellingen in New South Wales. The school is founded on the educational philosophy of Rudolf Steiner.
The special aim at Chrysalis is to educate the whole person intellectually, artistically, socially and morally, so as to develop each student’s innate self-discipline and strength of body and will.
This philosophy has grown out of the wisdom and insight of the philosopher, scientist and artist Rudolf Steiner. Using his picture of human growth and development, Chrysalis School was founded in 1982 as a school for Rudolf Steiner Education. It is one of over 1000 Steiner (or Waldorf) schools worldwide.
