The Rangi Ruru school year has started strongly with outstanding 2018 NCEA results announced in January.

The NCEA results saw 99.1% of students achieve Level 1, 100% achieved Level 2 and 97.3% achieved Level 3. 95.5% of girls gained University Entrance.  

Assistant Principal Curriculum, Juliet Collins says behind these statistics lie personal achievements for each girl, and every year Rangi acknowledges and celebrates that.

“We are fortunate to have such a wonderfully diverse student body,” says Ms Collins. “Our personal development plans and tailored learning programmes result in our students doing well academically and personally. The support we have around our students encourages them to be independent while being confident that support is there for them. We see the positive results from this, as do our students and families.”

The strength of the start to the year can also be seen in the school roll which reflects the growing demand for places at Rangi Ruru. There are now waitlists for the younger levels and the boarding house.

Open Days are an excellent way for girls and parents to look around the school campus, meeting students and staff. Usually Rangi holds its first Open Day in Term 2, however, this year it’s been moved to Term 1 on Friday 22 March.

Principal, Dr Sandra Hastie says, “I encourage anyone thinking about Rangi for their daughter, to contact the school enrolments team. They are very approachable and understand the types of questions and considerations families have when looking at a new school.”
