Thank you for your interest in our School. I appreciate very much the opportunity to share something of my passion for the kind of holistic Christian education we are able to offer to over 400 students at Rangiora New Life. It can best be summed up in two ways:
A Community which Cares
From the first pre-school visits to the New Entrant Department (which we welcome at any time) up to the students in Year 13, visitors often notice our special sense of community. It grows naturally as our students develop lasting, positive relationships with others and with their teachers. This enables the whole person to develop – spiritually, academically, emotionally and physically. Such a school-wide commitment is based firmly on biblical virtues such as kindness, compassion, justice and, above all on the kind of love demonstrated to us in the life of Jesus Christ, a love that puts others before ourselves.
Students who Achieve
I am personally passionate about all students reaching their full academic potential while attending Rangiora New Life School. In 2010 this was reflected in the fact that we were one of a very small number of schools in NZ with a 100% pass rate for NCEA Level One (Year 11). In the primary school our commitment to student achievement is reflected in the significant extra resourcing of teachers to assist all of our younger students in meeting the new National Standards targets in reading, writing and mathematics. All these students experience the satisfaction of achieving these academic milestones as well enjoying a very wide range of learning experiences, including the most up-to-date forms of e-learning and an exciting co-curricular programme in outdoor education, sports and culture.

Do take time to explore this site checking out areas such as our 2011 ERO report and the newsletters which regularly report on outstanding achievements of our students in service, academic, sporting and cultural areas. Please also feel free to contact me personally to discuss the possibility of enrolling your children at our fine School. We believe that Rangiora New Life School offers them the best possible environment to achieve their unique and special God-given potential.
