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 enthusiastic Parent Community Liaison 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.

School Photos

March 12th, 2018

A reminder that tomorrow is school photos. It would be great to have full attendance so to make our class photos complete.
If you would like your children photographed together please let the office know.

Community Consultation

March 8th, 2018

Due to the growth of our fantastic school over the last few years the Ministry of Education has asked Ranzau School to adopt an enrolment scheme. As part of this process we wish to consult with:

  • Parents of students at the school; and
  • People living in the area for which the school is a reasonably convenient school.

We wish to consult with you to discover and consider your view of the proposed Ranzau ‘Home Zone’ (a copy of the map). If you or anyone you know have any queries or comments you would like considered please complete this short survey.

If you could please let us know your thoughts by Thursday 29 March 2018.
