With an increasing focus on Drama studies at Rehoboth in recent years it seemed high time that our students were exposed to the wonder of a live professional performance. However, rather than tackle the logistics of taking over 130 students to the theatre, we were fortunate enough to be able to get the theatre to come to us with The New Zealand Playhouse touring production of Oscar Wilde’s classic Victorian melodrama, The Importance of Being…

Round 4 – Year 7-8 Division

Out and About with the Year 10s

The Year 10 students took the opportunity of the last week of Term 2 to get out and about! (Don’t worry, it was all part of their Geography studies)

Firstly on Tuesday, 30 June, we went to Curtin University to participate in two workshops which involved getting our hands on some pretty interesting technology.
