    The first impulse for a Steiner School in Queensland arose in the late 1970s when Anthroposophical study groups' activities inspired the seed thought of such an endeavor. In the early 1980's several workshops were organized, and speakers engaged in promoting the idea and ideals of Steiner Education. The first workshop was in October 1982 with Miss Sylvia Brose, of the Glenaeon Steiner School in Sydney. This workshop attracted many people and generated much public interest. After this workshop with Miss Brose, a study group began, which focused explicitly on Waldorf education's nature. From this, the Rudolf Steiner Education Group Brisbane, the school's governing body, was formed as a steering committee to coordinate the work towards establishing a school. There were many years of hard work and strong foundations before Samford Valley Steiner School commenced with a playgroup of eight children in 1987. In 1988, this group had grown to about 15 children, and the first Class 1 of 9 children began in 1989, initially meeting in the homes of the students, then at a temporary site on Winn Road, Mt Samson.

    OUR VISION  Advancing social and cultural renewal through the sound anthroposophical application. Our intention at Samford Valley Steiner School is to be true to the spirit and intentions of the educational impulses and anthroposophical insights offered by Rudolf Steiner. We are continually striving to provide and develop a curriculum and learning program inspired by a deep understanding of human development, embraces and reflects the universal values of freedom, equality, peace, and democracy, and values diversity and individual worth.

    All curriculum content and experiences offered to young people during their schooling are purposefully and consciously considered in light of how and when the activity or knowledge will best support their natural development. Our teachers create a school where goodness, beauty, and truth permeate the pedagogical, physical, and social fabrics.

    OUR MISSION is The Board of the Rudolf Steiner Education Group Brisbane (the association that established the school) and the College of Teachers (CoT) of Samford Valley Steiner School together developed the school's vision from their respective mission statements.
