Located in a semi-rural area of East Maitland, an appealing natural environment is the setting for the students’ journey through their school education – one which is rich with discovery, imagination and deep engagement. Here they can learn, grow, and develop a sense of purpose as individuals, and as part of a contemporary community.
Steiner education endeavours to guide and nourish the physical, emotional, intellectual and spiritual development of each student through approaches and activities appropriate to the early childhood, primary and secondary school stages – building the capacity, confidence and love for learning in a changing world.
Mitch Mahoney, attended Linuwel School for ten years; he is an emerging Aboriginal Artist making a strong and positive impression on the Australian art’s scene. Mitch and his Aunty, Maree Clarke, have created a 10 metre long disposable eel trap out of river reeds. You will enjoy reading Mitch’s interview with Matters Journal; it is illuminating and brimming with insight into the artist’s connection and commitment to culture along with his understanding that ancient wisdom has an important role to play in a sustainable future.

Linuwel School respectfully acknowledges the Wonnarua people as the traditional custodians of the land upon which our school lives.
We acknowledge that this beautiful country has been cared for by the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples for over 60 thousand years, living in harmony with nature.
We give thanks to elders past, present and future for sharing, through stories, their spiritual knowledge and wisdom of this land and her sacred places.
It is a blessing to learn, share and grow together.
