Sophia Mundi is an exciting, vibrant, independent, non-denominational and co-educational inner city Steiner school offering an affordable, enriching educational pathway from Early Childhood to Senior Secondary. We share a five-acre site in inner city Melbourne, within the beautiful and safe surrounds of the Abbotsford Convent, adjacent to the Collingwood Children's Farm. We are a not-for-profit organization, a member of Steiner Education Australia, and an International Baccalaureate World School, offering the International Baccalaureate Diploma in years 11 and 12. We are the first school in Australia to offer the unique combination of a Steiner curriculum and the International Baccalaureate. We offer a real "Sophia Mundi Difference".
During 2012 we worked hard to construct new buildings and a new playground to complete our Prep to Year 12 campus at St Mary's within the Abbotsford Convent. We are particularly delighted that our Prep class has now moved to join us at St Mary's – complete with a fantastic new Prep garden right next to the St Mary's paddock of the Children's Farm. Our new playground, constructed on top of the previously derelict swimming pool at the Abbotsford Convent is now in full use and is open to the public outside of school hours.
We look forward to meeting you at one of our regular information evenings or school tours. We hold Senior School Information Evenings to introduce the Steiner/ IB combination to existing and new parents and students. Our school tours are held on the first Tuesday of each month and prep tours are held on the first Friday of each month. Our Spring Fair last year was on Sunday 11 November 2012, and coincided with the Abbotsford Convent Open Day. Many thanks to our parents, friends and students who made it a fantastic day!
