The three houses of Twizel Area School pay homage to our school’s location, with each house named after one of the three nearby lakes; Ōhau, Pūkaki, and Ruataniwha. 

Every student is a member of one of the houses, giving them a sense of belonging as they represent their house in sporting and cultural activities. 

Each of the houses is assigned a colour, with students being encouraged to wear their house colours on days such as Athletics and Swimming Sports.

House colours are Ōhau (green), Pūkaki (blue), and Ruataniwha (yellow).

Where we are aware of familial connections, new students are placed in the same house as their siblings or whānau. Students with no previous affiliation are allocated to a house to ensure a balanced mix of students within the house groups.
