About our school

Welcome to Lake Illawarra High School

Lake Illawarra High School is situated on the foreshores of Lake Illawarra on the traditional lands of the Wadi Wadi tribe. We are a comprehensive high school which is also home to a special education unit (Harbour Centre).

At Lake Illawarra High School we cater for a wide range of student abilities and as a result offer an extensive curriculum and many opportunities to engage in extracurricular activities. The school provides on demand technology to maximise learning opportunities and industry standard facilities for vocational training. The staff at Lake Illawarra High School utilise quality teaching practices, in a safe, secure and well-managed environment, in order to provide an excellent standard of education. Staff are committed to engage students in the desire to grow and learn.

Extra -curricular opportunities in Sport, Leadership, Technology, and Creative and Performing Arts, enable our students to be provided with opportunities to excel in a range of different experiences. Lake Illawarra High is also a member of the Illawarra Academy of STEM Excellence which allows our students to engage with a wide range of industry partners. The school has a CLONTARF Academy which provides ongoing support and the provision of opportunities in many areas for our First Nations students.

Our school is a member of the Lake Learning Community and works together with both our partner primary schools and our community to sustain a culture of effective , evidence -based teaching for ongoing improvement and to support the learning and wellbeing of students as they transition from primary to high school.

 We provide opportunities for our students to become responsible citizens who care for and respect themselves and the community, and who can adapt to adversity and the challenges of a changing world. Our school motto is “seek the truth”, to support students to find and evaluate information to deepen their understanding of the world around us. I am proud to lead a school that is focused on providing a safe and caring community where all students reach their highest potential through positive, enriching learning experiences.

Principal, Lake Illawarra High School
