We are proud of our position as the ‘grounded and rounded’ independent school in New Zealand, where every girl is welcomed and celebrated, and inclusiveness is part of who we are. Our girls come from a wide range of backgrounds, countries and beliefs, which brings diversity and character to our community; something we embrace. Being a single-sex school enables girls to feel more comfortable in the Rangi environment, enabling them to bring their true selves to school each day, and feel part of the Rangi Sisterhood.
Belonging to not only our Rangi whānau, but our wider communities – Ōtautahi, Aotearoa and the world, we believe in being global citizens and play our part to bring change for the better.
A sense of belonging starts with family, and at Rangi we have a Care and Development network focusing on the wellbeing of each girl, to ensure she feels comfortable and apart of our family.
We are a school based on the connection and belonging between girls, past, present and future. It is this Sisterhood which brings such a strong sense of family to Rangi. Our Clans amplify this Sisterhood amongst current students, and enable some healthy competition along the way!
As a faith based school, we hold Christian values as the foundation of our own. Attending Chapel, and reflecting on their own journey with faith is one way we encourage girls to consider what values mean to them personally, and how they would like to lead their lives.
