Our caring, professional teachers are dedicated to achieving quality outcomes for children in all areas with each child learning to accept responsibility for their actions and learning. Lakelands provides excellent learning programs, happy experiences and wide-ranging opportunities for all students.Our relaxed and supportive learning environment, which embraces the five C's of Citizenship - Care, Courtesy, Consideration, Commitment and Co-operation - enable members of our school to participate successfully in all aspects of schooling to the best of their ability.The school is sited on eight hectares of picturesque land surrounded by residential blocks. The large, leafy, natural environment contributes to the welcoming culture of our school. We have state of the art equipment including Interactive Whiteboards in all classrooms and Video Conferencing facilities. All classrooms have been refurbished in 2010. The recently enhanced playground includes new climbing equipment, sandpit, toy-car play area, netball hardcourt, COLA, large grassed and shaded sections, giant chess board, vegetable garden and a quiet passive area with seating. These engage, involve and accomodate the different interests of children. We promote and maintain strong community links via an active Parent and Citizens Association and extensive involvement with other schools in the Dapto Learning Community. These close co-operative connections between schools assist Kindergarten and High School transition as well as enabling the sharing of ideas and resources.Our student leadership programs encourage individual and civic responsibility. Together we look to maintain and enhance our excellent reputation.
Cooler Classrooms Program
The NSW Government is committed to providing students with healthy and comfortable learning environments. That’s why we’ve invested a record $500 million to provide a sustainable air conditioning program for NSW schools.
To ensure the NSW Government responds to the needs of students in the hottest parts of the State, we will provide air conditioning in classrooms and libraries at schools that experience a mean maximum January temperature of 30°C and above.
School Infrastructure NSW is pleased to advise that your school’s application for funding as part of the Cooler Classrooms Program has been successful. School Infrastructure NSW will be in contact to organise a date for the due diligence team to visit your school. Congratulations on your successful application. We look forward to working with you to provide better learning environments to improve educational outcomes.
Applications for the second round of funding are now closed.
