The Admissions Process
The admissions process for places at Orana in 2016 will begin in May 2015. Offers are also made throughout the year when vacancies arise. The school holds waiting lists for all year levels. All expressions of interest received are placed on a waiting list according to year of birth.
Once a completed expression of interest form is lodged to the school, you will receive an email response from the Admissions Officer within five working days, acknowledging receipt of your expression of interest. If you do not receive this email please contact the Admissions Officer on 02 6287 8301 or [email protected]
The first step in the admissions process is to complete an Expression of Interest form (waitlist form). This form is available to download here or you may collect a copy from either from the main school office or from the Admissions Officer. For students wishing to enter Orana from Class one onwards, we require copies of the last two years school reports prior to the offer of an interview. An interview doesn’t guarantee a place at the school.
The school attempts to offer equal numbers of places to boys and girls at its main entry points and endeavours to maintain a gender balance in all year levels. Preference is given to children of permanent staff, siblings, children of Collegians (former students) and students who have previously attended another Steiner school.
Families wishing to enrol their children at Orana Steiner School should be prepared to support the policies, rules and disciplines of the school.
Entry Points at Orana Steiner School
The main entry points at Orana Steiner School are Pre-Preschool, Preschool and Kindergarten. Of course, we welcome applications for all other year levels.
Age Requirements for Pre-preschool, Preschool, Kindergarten and Class 1 Entry
