Last week Twizel Area School welcomed close to two hundred students from across the South of the South Island to participate in the 2022 SAS Tournament. It was an awesome event that celebrated everything great about Area Schools.

The theme for the Tournament was ‘Haere Tonu!’ - ‘Keep Going!’ an apt goal for the times. Twizel, of course, dominated many of the events with tough competition (usually from Roxburgh). At the tournament's conclusion, the Nationals Team of 45 students were named. Of those, 10 are from Twizel across Netball, Basketball, Football, Volleyball and Ki-o-rahi.

The Twizel students selected are: 

  • Kiara Thyne
  • Isabella McMillan-Firman
  • Sadie Mason
  • Alizay Bayliss
  • Jack McLellan
  • Ralph Henderson
  • Brandon Anderson
  • James McDonald
  • Lily Brophy
  • Louie Skinner 

Congratulations to them all, we wish them all the best for their upcoming competition in Whangarei during the July school holidays!
