Course Overview

Casual participants are invited to enrol in the full Seminar for Primary and High School, or in the following Individual Modules:


Creative Speech


Creative Speech in  the Main Lesson

Creative Speech in the Main Lessons is important for teachers who would like to enliven their performing skills and improve their knowledge of the diverse trove of literature underpinning the Steiner curriculum. Teachers will be introduced to the foundations of artistic speech distinguishing the epic, lyric and dramatic styles. Participants will gain practical experience in creative speech exercises, gestures and movement to help enliven their delivery of literary works introduced throughout five core main lessons covered in primary and early high school. Resources from writers such as Pablo Neruda, Blake, Yeats, Shakespeare and Walter de la Mare will be studied, among others.

Bothmer Gymnastics

Movement permeates all other senses and needs to be nurtured, especially as our culture moves us toward an ever more sedentary and passive existence. Bothmer Gym is especially beneficial to children and adults whose senses and nervous systems are over-stimulated, as it allows us to reconnect to the rhythmic system and will in the limbs.

By learning Bothmer Gymnastics we gain the capacity and discipline of active stillness, an essential state for quality listening, inner preparation and gathering one’s resources. Through this practice of bodily movements we can experience the creative, spiritual forces of space working upon the body.


Tutors: Louise Swanson

Session Dates: 14 – 15 April

Session Time: 1.30pm – 3.00pm

Module-only Fee: $160 (incl. GST)

Positive Discipline (NESA)


During this course, participants will gain practical skills and classroom management strategies for developing their own effective and positive

classroom discipline system. They will learn how to strengthen teacher and student relationships, create positive classroom routines, teach

appropriate social and emotional skills to students, and to transform everyday classroom behaviours in a respectful and caring manner. They

will have opportunities to ask specific questions for their own understanding and learning, and practical classroom experiences. The aim is for

participants to leave feeling more inspired, confident and ready to provide a learning environment for all students, within a framework of positive

classroom discipline and management, so that all students can learn in an optimal, safe and respected environment.

This is a NESA accredited course

What Our Students Say

Testimonial from student, SA:

“I recently attended the April teaching seminar at the Sydney Rudolf Steiner College and completed both the Music and Artistic Development courses. I was honestly impressed with the calibre of the teachers. These courses were very much hands-on and I came away with many new and exciting resources to take back to the classroom. I feel enriched and inspired. I learnt techniques that were fresh and exciting along with a new delivery approach for my students. Thank you for your dedication to give us such an enlivened experience”.
