Because of You – Annual Giving 2019
The school as it is today is a testament to the vision and enormous generosity of Rangi Ruru alumnae and their families, with each generation leaving a legacy for the next.
Over the years, because of people like you, the school has been able to provide Rangi girls with scholarships, offer personal development and leadership opportunities to students and staff that the normal curriculum does not provide for, build state of the art facilities and amenities and acquire equipment that supports the Rangi all-rounder in their endeavours.
In 2018, because of people like you and the support gifted for the Mana Wahine fund, seven students attended the Making a Difference – Girls Change Leadership Summit in Auckland. Because of people like you, music scholars benefited through an auxiliary programme focused on mental performance, where they received one on one sessions with a mental performance coach. And because of people like you, through the Principal’s Koha fund, we were fortunate to be able to support a current family in their time of crisis.
Because of You: Annual Giving Programme 2019
This year we invite you to give to our Because of You: Annual Giving Programme in the following areas:
- Mana Wahine Fund: This fund will help nurture future leaders and support student personal development. This fund will benefit girls from Year 7 through to Year 13. To give you an idea of how your gift could benefit a Rangi girl, $300 would allow one girl to attend the 2019 Making a Difference: Student Leadership Summit in Christchurch in October.
- Principal’s Koha Fund: This fund allows the Principal to support current families during times of hardship or crises. It takes a lot of courage for parents to ask for help in times of overwhelming hardship and being able to support them, and their daughter is a real blessing.
- The Rameau Grand Piano: Rangi has had a grand piano on loan from the Institute of Registered Music Teachers (IRMT), since the earthquakes. The School has a need for the piano and the IRMT now need to sell it, so Rangi now has the opportunity to purchase it. So far, thanks to generous donations from the Rangi Ruru Foundation, PTA, and RROGA $25,000 has been raised however, this is still $4,000.00 shy of the total. Please help us with this final push to fully purchase this much-loved instrument.
In 2019 I ask you to look to Rangi’s future and consider the proverb ‘The true meaning of life is to plant trees we ourselves will never sit under’.
Because of you, Rangi Ruru will continue to seize every opportunity for its continued advancement and most importantly for our girls to flourish.
Please join me in supporting the Because of You 2019 Annual Giving programme.
Thank you in advance for your support.
