All our senior leavers were given a letter to take home last week. The letter includes the following information...

Dear Students, Parents / Caregivers,

With external examinations beginning shortly the staff wish you well with your final assessments. Examination leave will begin on Friday 19th November provided you have completed all internal assessments for the year. Remember if you are at school, you are in uniform, including for study, tutorials and exams.  I would also like to bring to your attention the following items:

Text Book Return

Students may use their texts for revision for the examinations.  Texts are to be returned to school between 9 am and 12 noon on Friday 3rd December or earlier. Please ensure that you have the books returned in good order and on the off chance that you notice any other school books at home this would be a great time to return them.


If you are leaving Twizel Area School at the end of this year you need to complete a leaving form by the 3rd December. These are available at the office or to download here:  Senior Leavers Form

Lockers and Common Room

You need to ensure that you have removed any personal property, including exercise books, from your locker on or before 3rd December. If you have a responsibility to clean the common room this needs to be completed on or before 12 noon 3rd December. 

Course Selection 2022

You have made preliminary choices for study in 2022.  If you have any changes from you initial selection please let me know so that planning for next year’s timetable can progress. 

Leavers’ Dinner

This year’s dinner is booked in for Wednesday 24th November. More details will be given to the students involved as soon as possible.

End of Year Assembly

Term 4 assembly is one of the highlights of the year.  It is expected that all senior students attend the end-of-year assembly when students’ academic, sporting, cultural and service achievements are recognized.  Assembly for Years 11 to 13 begins at 2:15 p.m. on 14th December.  All students are to meet in their House Room at 2 pm in full uniform. Students not in uniform will not be admitted. Please notify the office if you are unable to attend.

School 2022
