Waldorf School Windhoek

Accommodation Namibia

The first Waldorf School in Namibia was founded in 2000 with 42 children in two grades. Currently the initiative provides 13 grades, two kindergartens, a residential school, as well as an afternoon care, additionally supporting children when needed. In 2008 The Federal Ministry of Economic and Development of Germany granted money to the initiative in order to establish practical classes. Currently there are around 250 students attending Windhoek Waldorf School.

Waldorf School Windhoek (WSW) is a unique community of 260 learners, 42 staff members, 4 ducks, 2 chickens, 2 cats, and the occasional natural wildlife. A walk around the school premises is a sensorial experience: the vast sky above, the welcoming shade of the trees, the open and calming spaces, and, of course, animated conversations between teachers and learners and squeals of laughter from playing children.

Situated in Andries De Wet Drive in Avis suburb, the school is surrounded by Namibia’s quintessential savannah landscape. This open setting provides the perfect environment for the Waldorf pedagogy to burrow its roots and spread its branches, preparing its learners in a holistic manner for the adventures and challenges of life from kindergarten to high school.

WSW has an integrated education which harnesses the benefits of a conventional education curriculum (languages, arts, and the sciences) taught in an engaging, creative, and supportive environment. Learners are taught the importance of identity, independent thought, and collaboration. WSW is proud of its growing alumni pool of confident young adults.

In 2004 the school moved to a premise of 2,4 hectares at the city border. Ever since, ongoing reconstruction allows the school to create an environment, which is more and more suitable for the children’s needs. Thus, with the help of donations, the initiative was able to refurbish a building for a residential school. Today 24 children live there due to the fact that school is either located to far away from their homes, or it is simply not possible for their parents to pay for a daily ride home. The staff of the residential school has been able to provide a secure and intimate environment for the children, despite the little financial means.
