Students entering in 2013/14 at either Year 9 or 10, and who board at school for the first two years of their enrolment with us, will be charged New Zealand Resident tuition fees. This is a considerable reduction in fees. Fees will revert to the standard international rate after their first two years of enrolment for the remainder of their time at Rangi Ruru. They will pay the same boarding fees as domestic students.
