We received our formal accreditation as an International Baccalaureate World School on 20 October 2011.
While this was the culmination of a lot of hard work in preparing our staff and school for accreditation, in reality this was the first step in our journey with our students on the path to delivering a really world class educational outcome, combining our Steiner curriculum with the IB certification and programme. There is no compromise to the Steiner curriculum which continues to the end of Year 10, although staff, students and parents in year 10 use the IB "ManageBac" system in preparation for year 11.
As part of the accreditation program, representatives of the IBO met our staff, our students and parents; to review / audit our policies and procedures; to go through our curriculum and to inspect our facilities. They were thoroughly impressed by our preparation, our staff and the great fit between our school's philosophy and vision and that of the IBO.
Our Years 11 and 12 are now in full swing with their IB course and enjoying the challenge.
