Lakehaven Secondary School is celebrating its milestone 50th anniversary with a special dinner and dance event, to raise funds to upgrade and maintain the infrastructure of the school. The event promises to be a spectacular evening.
The school is therefore reaching out to former pupils of whatever vintage or year to support them and also jointly celebrate the special milestone. The dinner and dance event will be held at UDW Comsa Lounge, near the Asoka Theatre, on February 17 from 6pm.
The school officially came into existence in May 1968. At that time, it served as a Pioneering Secondary School in the area, serving the Newlands, Sea Cow Lake, Kenville, Springfield and Newlands East areas respectively.
Over the decades, the school has produced brilliant academics, technicians, artisans, captains of industry and celebrated medical geniuses, who have massively contributed to KZN, South African and in the international society.
During the 1990s, the school was a trailblazer in transformation as pupils from Kwamashu, Richmond Farm, Ntuzuma and Siyanda enrolled.
Throughout the decades, the school has maintained its high standards of delivering quality education. The educational facility also held its awards ceremony on Tuesday, January 30, where hard working pupils from grades eight to 12, who achieved distinctions in their subjects, were honoured with special awards.
School principal, Mr Azad Khan said, “While the school has fallen on financially difficult times, it continues to deliver quality education as attested by our position as the leading Newlands secondary school for 2016 and 2017 in terms of National Senior Certificate results.”
