At Lakeside College we seek to provide a well rounded, Christian education for students of all backgrounds. In the Primary Years we aim to provide each child with programs suited to their needs, in order to lay the foundations for future learning. We provide a safe and caring environment where each child is challenged to reach his/her potential. In order to ensure all students are engaged in learning we use a range of teaching and learning methods including small group work and ‘hands on’, enquiry based experiences.
Small class sizes mean the children at Lakeside College can receive individual attention and be nurtured as they grow in this family like environment. Older students work with younger students across the school, creating collegiality and inclusiveness among students of all ages and backgrounds. At Lakeside College we have a strong commitment to developing skills across a range of curriculum areas. In the Primary Years we have a firm emphasis on literacy and numeracy as well as music, sport and studies of our community. Central to our teaching and learning are our Christian values. Students are taught about the Christian faith and values in an inclusive, non threatening way. Each Friday we have a Chapel service, in which the students participate.
