Rangi Ruru Old Girls’ Association (RROGA)

The Rangi Ruru Old Girls’ Association is very active and has a membership of almost 4,000 former students.

Members give generously of their time and mind and support the school through a Scholarship Fund, the donation of prizes, the organisation of the Leavers’ Ball, and with special celebrations such as the annual 20, 30, 40, 50, 60 and 70 years on reunions, the Annual General Meeting dinner/luncheon and opportunities for members to meet for fellowship and news of the school.

The association has branches in many parts of New Zealand and around the world, offering:

  • fellowship within the Rangi Ruru family past and present
  • the opportunity to renew and continue friendships
  • continuing contact with Rangi Ruru Girls’ School and news of the school
  • links with the branches throughout New Zealand and with kindred associations
  • avenues to continue support of Rangi Ruru now and in the future
  • an annual magazine – the RROGA Newsletter
