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

Dress Up Bright!

May 7th, 2019
As part of this Campaign Ranzau is running a BRIGHT DAY!
We encourage ALL Students to DRESS Up in BRIGHT COLOURED Clothes for our Walk to School Wednesday!
Get on your neon tutu and fluorescent leg warmers and walk to school with us as we show awareness for the need for safety around our roads.
Dressing BRIGHT helps to remind drivers to slow down and watch out for pedestrians and cyclists, and raises awareness of people killed and injured on foot and bicycle on our roads every year.
Alongside this we will be raising money for ongoing care of the cats that were recovered from school in the holidays so we ask that students please bring a gold coin donation on this day.
