At Rangi Ruru we believe that a quality education is a gift for Life

Through the generosity of spirit from our entire community we continue to ensure that Rangi Ruru provides an opportunity for every girl.

We believe that together we can achieve great things and continue to build on the outstanding legacy created in 1889 by the passionate and generous Gibson Sisters and all those who have followed.

Generosity of Spirit is one of our key values and our annual appeal provides an opportunity to reconnect with our Rangi family and community to ask for their continued support.

Generosity of Spirit

In 2017 we are asking for your support of our Stellar Music Scholarship and the Principal’s Koha Fund.

The Stellar Music Scholarship offers several new music scholarships and grants, enhances the current music programme with further opportunities to learn through additional workshops and masterclasses and invites local, national and international talent to mentor and inspire.

The Principal’s Koha Fund allows us to support our current families / whanau during times of hardship. This is a confidential arrangement between the school and family and provides support and peace of mind during this difficult time.

Rangi Ruru continues to grow due to the generosity and passion of its people. Your contribution WILL make a difference to many girls.

Thank you in advance.
