Lincoln High School / Te Kura Tuarua o Waihora (The School Secondary of Lake Ellesmere) is part of the educational hub of Ngā Matapuna o Ngā Pākihi.

The Ngā Matapuna o Ngā Pākihi area falls within the takiwā of Te Taumutu Rūnanga, one of 18 Ngāi Tahu Papatipu Rūnanga, based at Te Pā o Moki Marae, Taumutu. We have an extremely strong and important relationship with Te Taumutu Rūnanga, allowing us to utilise their knowledge, prowess and strength. Te Taumutu Rūnanga is the representative body and kaitiaki (guardians) of Te Waihora and the surrounding takiwā (region), including the whole of the Selwyn District, which Lincoln High School is a part of.

Te Taumutu Rūnanga have strong interests in the Selwyn District and as part of the Education portfolio agreement, Te Taumutu is recognised as the kaitiaki of the educational institutions in the district. The takiwā (territory) of Ngāi Te Ruahikihiki, the hāpu who are represented by Te Taumutu Rūnanga is centred around Te Waihora (Lake Ellesmere) and extends across the central part of Kā Pākihi Whakatekateka o Waitaha (the Canterbury Plains) to Kā Tiritiri o Te Moana (The Southern Alps) to the west, the Waimakariri River in the north and to the Hakatere (Ashburton River) in the south.
