Christian Character and Worldview: When is the Right Time for My Kids?

I’d like my child to attend Rehoboth but I’ve heard that you have an “open to Christians only” policy. What does this mean?

We believe that, to partner fully with our parents, we need to understand and believe the same truths of the Bible. We need to share a Christian worldview so that our children learn to understand that this is God’s world and that He is sovereign over it.

When we start with the…

Indigenous Cultures from Around the World

This Term, we have been learning about different indigenous cultures around the world.

Students created a slideshow and a poster, then presented them to the class. In class, we learnt a song in the Maori language from New Zealand, called “Tutira Mai”. We learnt how to play a stick game along to this song. In this game, we created “sticks” out of rolls of newspaper and would tap them or throw them to each other…

Keeping Exams in Perspective

You are probably aware that I see the value of exams and the skills learnt through the process of revision. There’s no doubt that exams are an important measure of a student’s academic ability (primarily for university entrance). However, they are just one measure of a child’s academic performance on a particular hour and day, under quite stressful and time pressured conditions. Many other skills and tasks go together to give an assessment of a…

Enlarge the Place of Your Tent: Learning from William Carey

I was reading something on the life of William Carey (the missionary to India) the other week and noted that it was a sermon on Isaiah 54:2-3 which gave him his life’s mission. The passage reads:

“Enlarge the place of your tent, stretch your tent curtains wide, do not hold back; lengthen your cords, strengthen your stakes. For you will spread out to the right and to the left; your descendants…

Protective Behaviours with Constable Care

Kenwick Primary students had the opportunity to be entertained and enlightened by the Constable Care crew this week.

Our students from Pre-Primary to Year 3 enjoyed a puppet show where Constable Care’s friends learnt about the difference between being Fun-Scared (like when going on a slide at the park) and feeling Unsafe and needing to ask for help from a trusted adult. It was a good reinforcement of many of our Protective Behaviours messages that…
