Ranui News

Ranui Action Project Working Bee….

             thankyou Nga Puna o Waiorea


Junior Students from the Rumaki Unit of Nga Puna o Waiorea – Western Springs College have started a new initiative “Raamanaki” a day to give back and help local community groups and organisations.

Ranui Action Project and the Ranui Community Garden were the lucky recipients of their services.

Twelve junior students, three senior students, and staff member Naomi Cusack came to cut back trees, shrubs, and weeds in the Ranui Action Project carpark and plant herbs in the Ranui Community Garden.

Of these 12 students, 5 of them are local Ranui residents so we have been able to make a connection with them and highlight the services we provide, the awesome work of Ranui135 and we look forward to seeing them again soon.

In collaboration with Ranui Action Project, Waitemata Seagulls and  Henderson Massey Local Board we were excited to assist in  the Physical Disability Rugby League Auckland 9’s held here in Ranui November 3rd and 5th 2017

The event  was attended by over 150 people who  were all treated to 4 teams of physically disabled athletes from both NZ and Australia combining to form 4 very strong teams under the NRL banner of West Tigers, South Sydney Rabbitohs, Manly Sea Eagles and our Vodafone Warriors.
