The AIS Band on tour


The Arts is an important curriculum area at Avalon Intemediate. We are proud of the skills our students have when performing and provide different opportunities for students to develop and share their learning in this area. 


Kapa Haka

Matua Jonas Malmanche and Liz Moka run the school Kapa Haka. The Kapa Haka group meet on Thursday mornings for 45 minutes and learn a range of waiata and haka.


Poly Club

Our cultural group is run by Miss Poasa and Mrs Makisi on Wednesday mornings. Students are working together to learn about the Pacific through cultural performance.



Arts Programme

In Terms 1 and 2 our students participate in drama, dance and music lessons (guitar and ukulele) within their teams. Teachers work alongside students to provide meaningful lessons and aim to include students in the planning and delivery of these lessons where possible. 


Languages Programme

Our languages programme runs in Term 3 and Term 4. Students select from a range of languages that are offered and attend these lessons on Friday mornings for 45 minutes. The languages available include Spanish, German, French, Samoan, Cook Island Maori and Tongan.
