Grow! Grow! Grow!

This Term, students in Wilson Year 4 have been coming to school with great anticipation. Who would have thought a tiny bean could cause so much excitement?

Emergency Services Cadets

As the academic year draws to a close, on behalf of all the Cadet Instructors at Rehoboth, I would like to thank the Cadets for their involvement and participation this year with Cadets.

The year of Cadets started out very enthusiastically with a great complement of students signing up, but we could not have imagined the changes we would go through. Sadly, the Australian Red Cross withdrew their support for the Cadet program state-wide; however,…
