A Beautiful Morning at the Falls

In our Year 8 Humanities class this Term, we’ve been learning about the different stages of rivers, the activity of each, how humans use these different stages, as well as our impact on the river ecosystem.

On Friday, 27 May, we went to the Lesmurdie Falls as part of our study on rivers in Humanities. It was a bright, beautiful morning and we all appreciated the opportunity to start the day out in…

Visual Arts: You Human Yet?

During Term 1 we had two very important and informative art excursions.

The first was on 23 March when we visited the Year 12 Perspectives Exhibition at the Art Gallery of WA with both the Year 11 and Year 12 Visual Arts General students. We travelled on the new bus to the Gallery which saved a lot of time as we used to walk to the train. Both year groups enjoyed seeing last year’s…

Applecross excursion

Recently Mrs Gwynne’s Year 12 Literature class ventured to Applecross SHS for a workshop with Mrs Lake, a former chief marker of Literature. She spoke to our students about the process of the exam, giving useful tips for achieving well, and worked through some poetry with the group.

Despite the solemnity of the occasion, we were blessed by the vibrancy of Mr Graham Maybury, Pastor at Mt Pleasant Baptist Church and former 6PR presenter, who brought a challenging and encouraging message about who…

Galileo vs. da Vinci

Term 1 of LEX@R has flown past! We began with a trip to Fremantle to look at the genius of Leonardo da Vinci and C. Y. O’Connor, and have been exploring some of the things that the Renaissance men did – art and science, observation and hypothesis, defence and development of towns, and revisiting older ideas to reinvent or rediscover them! Following in their footsteps, we have attempted some of the experiments that Galileo and…

Pandemonia and da Vinci in the LEX@R Classroom!

In Week 3, a group of students began work in the LEX@R classroom by visiting the fictitious planet of Pandemonia and helping to write their national song, describing the wondrous lives of those who inhabit Pandemonia! Some of the performances were very adventurous!

Last week we spent a day in Fremantle, exploring the machines, drawings, and inventions of Leonardo da Vinci. Many of them we were able to try out and see how they worked.…

Future Australia: A Godly Approach

The Year 10 English Stream 1 class has been considering groups represented in contemporary Australian culture. We have discussed reasons for stereotypes and how these can damage our appreciation of others.

The following statements are taken from students’ short answer responses to the question of how, in future, Australia might be a more Godly culture.

“God made each person to be different, so when we base our opinion of people based on popular stereotypes, we are…

47 Years with Rehoboth

On 18 February we had our first Endeavour Assembly for 2016. Wanting to continue the celebration of Rehoboth’s 50 years, we invited Mr Jan Peletier, our own Mr Peletier’s grandfather, to share with us about his 47-year involvement with Rehoboth.

It was so encouraging to hear that some of the values Mr Peletier Senior saw and endorsed back then are still ingrained in Rehoboth culture today. He commented on how important Christian Education was to him and…
