Rangi Ruru is one of New Zealand’s highest achieving schools in sport and consistently has the highest rate of sport participation in New Zealand.
It is hardly surprising, with around 90% of students engaged in at least one sport each year, involved in 30 codes, under the guidance of around 75 coaches.
Some students choose to pursue their interests in sport through the curriculum, however for most girls sports are co-curricular activities. Sport at Rangi is as much about the team spirit and having fun as it is about the competition and challenge.
Each year a number of students become local, regional or national representatives in their sport. Some of these girls are supported through the SOAR Specialist Sports programme.
Rangi Ruru has a selection of excellent on-campus sports facilities for the girls’ enjoyment and to help them maintain their fitness. These include the school gymnasium, pool, hockey turf, hard courts and the specialist fitness centre.
Rangi Ruru offers many sporting opportunities to cater for the varied interests of students. These are represented at most levels and include:
|Indoor Netball||Kickboxing||Lawn Bowls|
* polo, dressage, eventing and showjumping.
