Barb Smith this year received an Honours Award for Service to the School Community/Administration and Support at the Independent Schools New Zealand Conference in June this year. As a valued and passionate member of the Rangi community Barbs admits:
“I feel very humbled by being able to work in such a great environment, with wonderful staff and students. Rangi is my second family. I give to Project Blue Sky, it’s my way of giving back, to help this wonderful school move forward.”
“After 28 years, Rangi is home to me. I love my job and the people here, it’s why I give to the school. Rangi is a special place.”
“I feel privileged to have the opportunity to share any good fortune that comes my way and have always enjoyed giving when I have the opportunity. Working at Rangi Ruru and seeing firsthand the care and attention that goes into providing an environment where all girls can grow and flourish encourages me to be a part of the Annual Appeal each year.”
