The Motueka Rudolf Steiner School is a small Steiner/ Waldorf School in a rural town in New Zealand. We accept international students into our classes 1-7 (ages 7 to 13). Students must be accompanied by a parent or guardian, exceptions are possible in class 7.

The Motueka Waldorf School looks back on a long history of hosting international students. We have had many German, Dutch, Japanese, British and American students here, typically staying for 3 to 12 months.”

Motueka is in the sunniest part of New Zealand, on the north coast of the South Island: ‘Top of the South’ as we say. Motueka is surrounded by forests, farmlands, national parks and beautiful beaches. The world famous Abel Tasman National Park is only 20 minutes drive from the school. A feature of our school is the strong support community that surrounds us. Visiting families do not just come to a school, they join a community.

“The Motueka/Tasman/Nelson region is known to attract many people from Central Europe, in particular from German speaking countries. All classes have students with languages other than English, with German being the most common. Non-English speaking students usually “buddy up” with another student from their home country which helps the transition. We are always surprised how quickly students learn English when supported at home and school.

Join us for for summer, a term, or even better or come for a full year.

A stay, short or long, allows families to get a taste of our school, our community, and the way of life in NZ. It will also provide children (and their parents) the best imaginable real life opportunity to improve their English as a second language. You will need to come as a family to care for your children while they are attending our school. An exception can be made for class 7 children if you have close contact with a family in or near Motueka who are able to care for your children while they are here and this arrangement is approved by the Motueka Rudolf Steiner School.
