Beginning of the Year
Along with the email that was received at the end of 2017, this page provides information helpful for 2018. The School Office is closed from 22 December 2017 and will re-open again on 15 January 2018.
You can buy stationery online at Office Max and it is best to place orders before 15 January to ensure delivery before school starts. Some items will be supplied by subject teachers and charged to the Goldsheet. A compulsory combined charge for the 2018 Student Handbook and the 2018 Yearbook of $20 will be included on your first disbursement account. Year level specific stationery lists are available below:
~ Year 7 ~ Year 8 ~ Year 9 ~ Year 10 ~ Year 11 ~ Year 12 ~ Year 13 ~
Bring Your Own Device (BYOD)
Rangi Ruru Girls’ School operates a compulsory ‘Bring Your Own Device’ (BYOD) policy. This means that every student will be expected to bring a digital device and charger, that is capable of connecting to a wireless network and browsing the internet. Visit BYOD to learn more and find out what support options are available through our IT Services team.
Getting Connected Sessions – Wednesday 24 January – Friday 26 January
In order to allow your daughters to get off to a seamless start we are running ‘Getting Connected’ sessions to set up their devices during the week before Term 1 starts for new students in 2018. There will be three sessions a day at 8.30am, 11.00am and 2.00pm running for approximately 2 hours. The sessions will be in the Gibson Centre and there will be signs out giving directions.
During these sessions girls will have their devices joined to the Rangi Ruru student wireless network, set up their school Office 365/email accounts, download and install the Microsoft Office suite and be shown how to use the OneDrive online storage to backup their files. They will also run through a simple Digital Citizenship exercise, a precursor to a more complete course they will take part in during Term 1.
The sessions are for the girls and, while parents are welcome, they are not required to stay and can collect their daughters at the end of the session.
