Avon Lewis

Avon joined the Puketapu School team in 2019 after moving back home from playing rugby overseas.

A keen rugby player with more than 100 games for Inglewood, he is also an experienced teacher who believes that kids learn best when they feel valued and have a sense of belonging at school.

His teaching is based around empowering students to take ownership of their learning through multiple pathways including digital technologies and creative expression.

Avon looks to teach in a fun, challenging, and innovative style, encouraging students to be creative problem-solvers who can think for themselves, fostering critical thinking so that students can explore education in their own unique way.
