Dr Sandra Hastie Principal

Welcome to Rangi Ruru Girls’ School and thank you for taking the time to come and experience all that Rangi Ruru has to offer. I hope that you leave today with a sense of who we are, what we stand for and an understanding of what makes Rangi Ruru the amazing place that it is. At Rangi we understand the importance of connection, each girl being known as an individual but belonging to a family, one that is 132 years old and still holds to the values laid down all those years ago. Our girls are looking forward to meeting you and showing you around our school that they are so proud to be a part of.

Maggie Craw Head of School 2022

Welcome to Rangi Ruru! I’m super excited to open our doors and give you an insight into this special place. I’m Maggie and I have been here since Year 9. Throughout my years I have been surrounded by so many amazing humans. And although I’ve never been entirely sure what I want to do after school, I have been able to immerse myself in many of the various opportunities offered at Rangi Ruru. Everyone is so encouraging and supportive, you feel so comfortable to be yourself and to explore your interests and passions— whatever they might be. If you are visiting us on site today feel free to speak to any of the lovely students throughout the day. If you are here virtually, I hope you can visit us soon to experience the magic of Rangi Ruru for yourself. 3
