Message from the Principal

It has been an honour to serve this school for the past six years, and I look forward to serving the school community for a very long time. Being part of Bishop Lavis High School community means being part of a warm and welcoming family.

My commitment to our community is to lead the school with enthusiasm and passion to reach our goals. We will strive to develop and enhance a school that focuses on the development of a whole learner. Learning and teaching involves more than providing academic instruction, it is about nurturing the individual academically, spiritually, emotionally and physically – equipping learners with lifelong skills to become compassionate and beneficial citizens of our beautiful country.
