Are you ready to begin your Rangi journey?

Belonging. Friendship. Fun. Giving back.

We celebrate our diverse Rangi Ruru family and offer to extend the connection beyond school for Alumnae who live all over the world, are busy parents, farmers, entrepreneurs and more. Rangi Ruru Alumnae are supported by the Rangi Ruru Old Girls’ Association (RROGA). This group of volunteers, along with the School, create opportunities and events for Alumnae to network, reminisce and inspire each other.

Update my details

We like to keep in touch with our Rangi family, but it can be hard when people move house, city or even country. Update your contact details so you can re-connect with old friends and even make new ones, plus we’ll be able to share Alumnae news and events with you.

Events

RROGA aim to offer a wide range of events for alumnae each year.

See below what is coming up for 2024.
