Our vision is to open a Steiner School in Caloundra on the Sunshine Coast starting in 2020.
With a strong community focus and commitment we are striving to create a holistic school to nurture happy children with eager minds. So far, the support and interest from the wider community has been overwhelming and proves to us the extent to which Caloundra needs an alternative schooling option.
Our initiative is solely made up of community members who volunteer their time, expertise and personal funds that have brought us this far. We have found an incredible venue that is just across the road from a nature reserve, which means our children will have access to learning in beautiful calming classrooms and in nature with qualified Steiner educators. The grounds are private with green cover and room to run around. We feel like we've hit the jackpot!
Now that we've found what we hope to be our future school, all the bigger expenses are coming and it is time to rally support. Here is our expense list:
$14 000 - Rent expenses (to cover the first 4 months of our tenancy, until we are operational)
$10 000 - Council fees to use the hall for a school (we aim to achieve a material change of use)
$ 3 000 - Town planner fees
$ 2 000 - Lawyer, accountant and consultancy fees
$ 7 000 - Classroom and basic set up (including books, art & craft supplies, puzzles etc.)
Our desire is to keep the enrolment fees as low as possible. This crowd-funding campaign will not only help to open our school but also help to achieve this.
Every dollar over our goal will go directly towards renovations, playground equipment and other expenses to bring our highest vision of the school to life.
