Milkwood Steiner School is situated on Larrakia country (Darwin) in the tropical north of Australia delivering a Steiner Curriculum to 120+ students from Kindergarten to Class 8. We acknowledge the Larrakia people as the owners of this land and acknowledge the privilege of teaching and learning on Larrakia country. We acknowledge that sovereignty was never ceded. We seek to be guided by Indigenous people in order to contribute to healing the wrongs of the past on this land.
In 2021, Milkwood Steiner School granted permission by Larrakia elder, Duwun Lee, to operate as a school on Larrakia land. Milkwood Steiner School was given the Larrakia name, Djandjag (Milkwood Tree).
Our school has unique large tropical style buildings with classrooms that open out on to broad verandas, with a playground that extends to a beautiful native bushland. We are a thriving, growing school, with a welcoming community and children from diverse cultural backgrounds.
