Where everyone can shine

Welcome to the Ranzau School website!

Ranzau School is a decile 9 state contributing school situated in a wonderful rural setting, just 3 km from Richmond and 18 km from Nelson.

Our school is well supported by the local community and we always strive to develop strong relationships. We currently have an enthusiasticParent ‘Connect’ Group and Board of Trustees. We have a committed and hard working teaching and support staff who share the vision and values of the school and community. They participate actively and willingly in all aspects of school life.

Students achieve well at Ranzau School. We place strong emphasis on literacy and numeracy, producing results consistently above the national norms. We also place high emphasis in developing responsible community members – children who are balanced, self managing, self disciplined, confident, caring, inquiring and who display a love of learning. We have strong student leadership opportunities. Our students care for each other which is visible in our highly successful buddy system and the pride they show in their school.

Notice Board

Welcome Back – Level 2

May 16th, 2020

We look forward to getting children back to school, to learning, to fun times and to their friends and teachers starting this Monday 18 May.

What can we do to support the school and our children?
Keep any students who are sick at home until they are well. Keep reminding them about the importance of hygiene and washing their hands. Ask about their school day and stay connected to us via Facebook and email as appropriate.

Returning to school is a positive move, as such we want students to come back excited and ready to share their fantastic experiences. Wellbeing and relationships has always been our priority and our staff will take the time to focus on this, in a manner similar to what we would do at the beginning of each school year. Wellbeing needs to be addressed before learning will happen.
