Our history

Milkwood Steiner School (MSSA) opened its doors in January 2004 in the converted Nightcliff Scout Hall, although the Darwin Steiner Association had been very active since 1999 with Steiner-inspired playgroups operating in Darwin and Litchfield. In February 2007 Milkwood moved to 3 Cecil Cook Avenue, Marrara and at the end of 2009 four tropically inspired classrooms with wide shady verandas were built on our current leased premises at Boulter Road Berrimah. We also hold a lease on the neighbouring natural bush block which extends our play area. We continue to wait to be granted land from the government to grow the school grounds.
