Greetings everybody,

A little bit about me.........

My Name is Lucy Cameron (Davenport) and I began teaching at Kapanui School in 2001 after graduating with a Bachelor of Eduction from Wellington College of Education.

At Kapanui School I taught in the Year 7/8 syndicate and thoroughly enjoyed the beginnings of my teaching career.  I organised the school netball, was involved with the Dance Splash, Choir and the very important Lip Sync competition that still runs there to this day.

I took a break from teaching to get married and start my family.  Lucia and Riley arrived over the few years and during that time I relieved in various schools around the Kapiti Coast.

I began teaching at Waikanae School in 2010 with a Year 7/8 class.  In 2012 I moved into the Te Aramoana syndicate with a Year 5/6 class and in 2016 moved back into Te Poutama with the Year 7/8's.

We are so lucky here at Waikanae to have such passionate teachers and non teaching staff, supportive parents and incredible grounds for our children to enjoy.  We are always looking for new and innovative ways to ensure our learners get the best out of their education and it's exciting to see how technology is making a positive impact.

Please don't hesitate to contact me on or pop in and see me.  In 2017 I have Staff Meeting commitments on Monday afternoons and Syndicate meetings on Tuesday afternoons.  Here is the link to our private closed group on Facebook.

Some extra things you might see me doing around the school:
  • Coordinate the school netball.  You can find more information about what we offer on our netball blog and Facebook Page.  
  • I work with the Year 7/8's in choreographing a dance to perform at the annual Dance Splash festival.
  • Coordinating the 40 hour famine for World Vision at the school. 
  • Working with the PTA and Whanau Support Group.
  • 2017 will see the wheels in motion for a school choir.
In my 'spare' time spending time with my family takes priority.  I help my husband run our small building company (ALLCAM Builders), perform in local theatre, Secretary/Treasurer of the Waikanae Surf Club and I'm enjoying a sideline business of being an Independent Scentsy Consultant
