Film crew captures our story for the PM Award

Having been selected as one of just four national finalists in the 'Excellence in Engaging' category for the Prime Minister's Award for Education Excellence, a film crew arrived on site on Monday to capture footage that will be used to create a five minute documentary about Avondale College's award submission.

Avondale College's case study focused on the achievement of our Pasifika students over the past ten years, which has seen year-level achievement rates increase from 51% in 2011, to 90% in 2020.

The film crew interviewed key students, staff and Board of Trustees members, and captured footage of our award-winning Samoan Group performing, as well as filming some classrooms in action, and our Aspiring Pasifika Leaders Group.

A 30-second edited clip will shown at the awards dinner which is to be held at Parliament Buildings in Wellington on 7 September, and the five minute full story will later be published to the Prime Minister's Awards website.
