It is an honour to be principal of Lakeview School. We are a school that works incredibly hard to meet the needs of every student; with this not being a mere catch phrase, but something that is backed up by the programmes we offer, our superb staff, fabulous facilities, wonderful families who

choose Lakeview as the school for their children, and supported by a board of trustees and PTA who are intent on giving our students all they need to thrive. Lakeview is all about opportunities, whether it be in the arts, culture, academia or sports, leading to fantastic success in all of these areas. None of these things happen by accident, they happen because of the time, effort, expertise, and resources that go into making them so.

Please feel free to contact me to find out more about our wonderful school!

Our Vision Statement

Brush Stroke Element

Engaged and Empowered

to achieve Excellence

Scroll down for more info!


Students are more likely to be engaged when they can make links to prior learning, they know the expected outcomes, and find the learning meaningful. Critical to engagement is ownership; a sense of being involved in setting next steps and understanding the purpose, rather than it all being done for and to them.


Students who are empowered know the what, why, and how of their learning. They are clear on the next steps and work in partnership with peers, their teacher and others to achieve them.

Students can excel in a variety of fields, not only academically but also culturally, socially and with sport. Students who are excelling, live by our school values and strive to do their best.

Our School Structure

Ka Topa

Year 7 - Year 8

In 2023 we have renamed our syndicates. These syndicates were previously named the Junior, Junior Middle, Senior Middle and Senior syndicates.

Our new structure uses the language associated with a manu (bird) taking flight. The youngest syndicate (New Entrants to Year 2) is named Ka Tau. This is the stage where the manu is settled and preparing itself for flight. The next syndicate (Year 3-4*) is named Ka Rewa. This describes the stage when the manu launches and takes flight. The Year 5-6 syndicate is named Ka Rere. This is the stage where the manu is able to fly by flapping its wings. The final stage is is Ka Topa (The name of our Year 7-8 syndicate). This is the stage where the manu is able to soar.
