What is this?
Rangitoto College established a Distinguished Alumni Summit Academy to recognise a certain number of former students each year. Honoured graduates of the College are chosen for their leadership, excellence in their field and contribution to society. Recognition aims to show the alumni themselves how the College appreciated that some of their formative education took place at Rangitoto College. In a sense, it is welcoming them home. This recognition is also both inspirational and aspirational for present students.
The recognition of distinguished alumni provides students with role models that they can aim to emulate. Because the Academy recognises people in a variety of occupations, students should realise the opportunities that exist for them in society if they combine hard work and intelligence. Finally the Academy affirms the teachers at Rangitoto College. The College contributed to the development of the honourees fundamental skills, and shaped their outlook on life through classes taught and through the wider life of the College.
Alumni Summit Academy Dinner
Honouring past students, means the College not only recognises their achievements but also celebrates with them. For this reason the Alumni Dinner is held annually in the College Auditorium.
Along with a three course meal and music, the honourees will speak either in person or via video. This is when the College places photographs of the years' honourees with a summary of their career to form a permanent display in the Auditorium foyer. Present students, teachers and the community are therefore able to celebrate the achievements of these Rangitoto College graduates when they enter the Auditorium.
Previous recipients are Craig Donaldson, Professor Ngaire Woods, Professor Alexa Still, Luke Hutchison, Lisa Chappell, Sean Marks, Andra Mobberley, Dr Steven Niederer, The Honourable Amy Adams and the Late Professor Terry Healy MNZM.
The College honoured Gary Freeman, Arch Bishop Philip Richardson and Ray Davies in August 2014.

Academic Endowment Fund
As important as it is to ensure that the students at Rangitoto College receive World Class Education, it is critical that the staff at Rangitoto College are also continually upskilling development and learning. This fund allows benefactors the opportunity to contribute to the ongoing development of our teaching disciplines and administrative staff. For further information please click here.
Often people are not in a position to be able to gift funds to the school while they are still alive, but may be able to leave some money for their school in their will. This is a wonderful way to leave a family legacy/name to ensure that one of the most important aspects of life – education – is offered at a world class level for our children and grand children.
