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.
RROGA aim to offer a wide range of events for alumnae each year.
See below what is coming up for 2023 and 2024.
We are pleased to announce the 2024 Rangi Ruru Reunions will be held on the weekend of the 16-17 February at Rangi Ruru Girls’ School. Registrations will open at the beginning of term 4 with a schedule of events and pricing released at the end of term 3.
