Welcome to Twizel Area School

Twizel Area School is a state co-educational area school for students in Years 1 – 13. 

Our school lies in the heart of the Mackenzie Basin surrounded by the Southern Alps and Lakes Pukaki, Ohau and Ruataniwha. The school is at the centre of the expanding Twizel township and acts as a hub for parents and community. There is a ‘whānau feel’ in the school. 

2021 our roll has increased to 230, with new industry and tourism creating work opportunities and attracting people to the area.

We are located in the Canterbury high country with the Southern Alps at our door, and the beauty and closeness of our outdoor environment has a strong influence on our students. We have a comprehensive outdoor education programme that includes all Y1 – 13 students in a carefully graduated programme. We also have a strong drama programme, with our students gaining national recognition.

Our school’s purpose is to help all students achieve to the best of their individual abilities, to enjoy success in learning and school life, and to grow up as responsible, motivated and confident young people.
