    Default Silkwood Steiner school gold coast

    Just wanting to hear from any parents who's children attend silkwood in mount Nathan, Gold Coast. I am currently a teacher aide in a special school. My son is ASD (high functioning, no behaviours, just high anxiety) and he really doesn't cope with teachings putting pressure on him to "hurry up." Etc. He is in year 6 this year and I know he won't cope at a high school, and I went and toured silkwood and they don't do high school program until year 9, which sounds perfect. Any options from anyone? I just don't know where to get hold of any info from parents. Of course all the school staff talk it up, but I want to know what it's really like.
    thanks in advance!

    Default Silkwood Steiner school gold coast

    Hi. My nephew is currently in class 6 at Silkwood. It is not a Steiner school although there are some aspects of Steiner philosophy. They also don't go through to class 12 currently.

    My sister has been very happy with the PS (my nephew has anxiety issues also) and I know they are intending on him progressing through to high school to here next year.

    Perhaps ask if you can speak to one of the current class carers in late primary or early high school (they are parents)? They may be able to answer your questions. Otherwise I would recommend going along to some of their events like the winter or spring festival and talking with other parents then. You'll be able to find dates/times on their Facebook page.
