Dynamic Duo Heading to Rangi Ruru

Rangi Ruru Girls' School —

With an already notably dynamic team – We are pleased to welcome Psychologists Melanie Patterson and Brinley McIntosh to Rangi Ruru.

Specialising in adolescence, both Melanie and Brinely will be a great addition to an already impressive pastoral care system and wellbeing programme.

Being advocates of effective empathetic advising, Melanie and Brinley believe that by giving our girls the tools to inspire, challenge and empower themselves, they will be able to be self-efficient in overcoming any challenges they may face.

With experience operating in a collegial environment and a passion to always expand their knowledge through continuous learning opportunities, research and professional development, Melanie and Brinley are well suited to discussing and advising on a vast range of topics. Our girls will be able to bring any topic of discussion to the table and have the support of not one, but two, exceptional professionals.

Stay tuned on the Rangi Ruru blog and our social media to see Melanie and Brinley’s profiles, as well as some quick-fire questions!
