Principal’s Message


Welcome to our School!

I am delighted to be the Principal of Lakelands Primary School and look forward to working with you in 2018 to fulfill our school vision of inspiring growth.

At Lakelands PS we are committed to the pursuit of excellence and the provision of high quality educational opportunities for each and every child. Our school is fortunate to have a highly skilled team of teaching and support staff that value and support the academic, physical, social and emotional development of every child. Together we strive to provide a positive learning environment that ensures every student is successful and every teacher is effective.

This year we will continue to focus on problem solving and the application of classroom learning to real life situations. We know that by providing a safe and intellectually challenging environment that we empower and enhance our students to become more innovative thinkers. We aim to turn out inspired learners who are prepared to listen, thrive and make a difference in the 21st Century.

Our students take great pride in their school and take responsibility for their own learning and behaviour. They actively participate and contribute to our community and uphold our school values of respect, responsibility, cooperation, courage and leadership. These values are the foundation for the fostering of a positive learning culture.

Critically, outcomes for our students are enhanced by the strong partnership between the school and the community. Parents play a significant role in our school supporting many projects and initiatives and taking on leadership through the School Board and P&C. There are many opportunities for parents to be involved and we actively encourage their involvement and input.

Ultimately, a school is only as strong as the sum total of all its contributors. So I invite you to work hand-in-hand with us to achieve our goal of ‘developing the whole child’.

I thank you for your interest in and support of our School – if I can be of any assistance, at any time, please do not hesitate to contact me.


Mrs Marnie Hamilton
