Twizel Area School has been selected from South Canterbury to attend the last three National Shakespeare Festivals in Wellington.
In 2012 a 15 minute extract from Twelfth Night (Act 2 Scene 5) was performed by seven of our students.
In 2013 a 5 minute student-directed piece from Much Ado About Nothing (Act 4 Scene 1) received good revues from the assessors and the award for the Best Use of Sound and Silence.
Joshua Coles-Braun was also selected for The National Schools Shakespeare Production in 2012 and he performed in a series of scenes from Pericles at Scots College Wellington and the Legislative Chamber at Parliament.
In 2014 a 15 minute student-directed extract from Henry VI Part 3 (Act 1 Scene IV) enabled five more students to attend the Wellington Festival.
For three year’s running Twizel Area School has also been awarded the Most Cooperative School Award donated by SGCNZ.
