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.

Future Planning

June 24th, 2016

We are planning for the future of our fantastic school. As part of this we are discussing “what will Ranzau look like in 5 to 10 years time?” Attached to todays newsletter was a draft landscape plan with some ideas about what our school could look like. The plan looks at how we can use our available spaces to enhance learning and our overall school environment. There is a more detailed version of this plan on the wall in the school foyer for people to look at. We would really value our communities input and have set up a short survey that we invite you to fill in. We will use the feedback from staff, students, B.O.T. and community to form the final plan. Below is a link to the survey that closes at the end of the term.
