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!

to achieve Excellence

Our ākonga participate fully as members of a learning community. They bring their passions, skills, culture and knowledge to share and contribute. They are confident, curious and courageous learners.


Our ākonga are empowered to know the value of their learning and to have a strong sense of belonging. They see themselves reflected in all aspects of school life, valuing partnerships with other ākonga, whānau, iwi and hapū.

Educational Worksheet Geometric Shapes


Our ākonga, both individually and collectively, are provided with opportunities to excel in ways that embrace their language, culture and identity. This happens through a variety of fields, including academic, cultural, social and sport. This is a reflection of the aspirations of their whānau, school, community and self.

Our School Structure

In 2023 we 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.
