Boarding at Rangi Ruru
We provide a safe, secure and caring environment where students can focus on learning, discover new opportunities, and have fun at the same time.
Boarding at Rangi Ruru enables girls to pursue academic, sporting and cultural interests that are not always available at smaller or rural schools. Girls who live on the outskirts of Christchurch also find that boarding saves hours of travelling time.
Home to 138 girls, our Year 9 to 13 boarders come from many different areas of New Zealand and the world to form a tight-knit and unique community.
Students may also live with family or in a ’Kiwi’ family homestay whilst attending Rangi Ruru. This is accommodation arranged by the school, in conjunction with parents or caregivers using a school-approved accommodation agent. Private Boarding is also an option and is arranged directly by parents. A responsible adult/member of family in New Zealand over 21 years of age must be in charge of the household and an accommodation indemnity document stating that parents take full responsibility for their child’s accommodation must be signed before the student begins classes.
