Taikura Rudolf Steiner School is a Waldorf School arising from the educational principles and Anthroposophical impulses of Rudolf Steiner. The school strives to keep the special character of this education fresh, alive and evolving within the cultural, historical, educational and geographic environment of Aotearoa New Zealand and Hawke’s Bay.
The health and wellbeing of the school is created through a strong and engaged community that connects students, parents, teachers, support staff and Trustees. Through their working together, a school and community spirit is built that enables a healthy foundation for lifelong learning. The chosen name ‘Taikura’ speaks of the different currents that flow into the school, and recognises that it is through the heartwood, and through many streams flowing together that the school stays strong.
