Welcome to Living School: a committed co-learning school community.
The Living School is about the power of inspiring places…
- where children learn,
- teaching is untethered,
- parents connect,
- and a community thrives.
At the heart of our dream is the understanding that learning must be fun – that childhood is a life in itself – and we know a great childhood shapes a great life.
Our children need much more than facts and content – they need to develop positive attitudes and responsible social networks! Our children need to find a purpose in this information age. We are committed to drawing out of each student a compelling desire, where interests become passion. And this is the historical origin of education – to evoke and draw out. We connect with our past to improve our future.
We aim to make schooling inspirational – a time in a person’s life when, years in the future, our children will discuss over a dinner table or social network their time at Living School with pride and humble humour at all they experienced, all they learned.
Living School celebrates our connection to nature and each other’s personal uniqueness: the fundamental principles for leading a fulfilled life. Celebrating our diversity allows us to respect our individuality.
Living School’s aim is to nurture progressively and purposefully key elements of success (values, attitudes, skills) to foster competence without pressure or expectation alienating and destroying each pupil’s love of learning. And to do so as a kind, mindful, engaging and supportive caring community.
Living School cares to teach, challenge and nurture good people for a sustainable future.
We believe that all children have a limitless potential and that the role of every educator and parent/carer is, before all else, to activate and mobilize the potential within a child, rather than see him or her from a point of view based on limitations and flaws.

Living School’s foundation is the Living philosophy:
New Model of Learning and Teaching
Living School is different – we view the future through a progressive lens. We adopt a new vision on how to teach with impact to empower and engage. We focus on the learning process: forming connections to think of the bigger picture; mastering concepts to understand; and learning in context to experience.
Real teaching focuses on what really matters, the bigger picture beyond the subject content knowledge: how do we soulfully, with great care, wholly influence a person’s development positively?
As educators, how do we prepare the seeds for a positive relationship? How do we teach to the personal needs of each learner under our care?
Personal learning means we ‘know’ our students. There is a difference between personalised learning and personal learning: personalised is what we do to them as individuals; personal is what they need to do for themselves.
Living School has purpose – and plans around frameworks to balance interest-based learning with challenges.
