This year our school theme is Every Nation. The Year 5 and 6 students were looking at different countries in small groups. We researched to find information, made a slideshow and then shared it with each…

Rehoboth Sets a High Standard

Is Rehoboth the school for your child?  This is a great question to ask, and can be answered in a number of ways. We would say that, first and foremost, we are aiming to grow Christian character, teach students a Christian (Biblical) world view, and challenge them to be disciples of Jesus Christ.

But what about the academics? As a school, we also believe in excellence in our academic and vocational programs. But to…

Testing Bridges

Our learning extension students have seen a busy two weeks of designing, building, and testing bridges. Having designed and tested our bridges to try and make them strong enough to carry a 1kg weight, the engineers in the LEX@R classroom faced the rigours of the Year 12 Physics students.  The Year 12s tested the weight bearing capacity of our designs, but also made insightful comments on the strengths and weaknesses of each design.

National Christian Schools Games 2015

“Being a part of the WACSSA team was a great experience. The overall event was Christ-centred and was filled with great competition and friendly rivalry. We did not only grow closer to our teammates, we grew closer to God. Although we were the smallest state, all the competitors strived to do their best. It was great to watch everyone bring glory to God through sport.” – Gloria Kennedy

Ripper River Bridge

Last week the LEX@R students began the task of building a scale model of a bridge to help the citizens of Whitetooth and Wobbegong connect across the Ripper River.

We have spent many weeks doing some research and inquiry into different bridges and designs and their benefits. It proved to be a challenge to work out the correct scale for the model and design a bridge to fit one of two possible sites as well…

Be Prepared

As we are in the middle of the first Semester Exams, I thought it would be wise to complete the theme of exams (particularly as Year 11s are now underway and this will be followed by the Year 7-10 exams). Exams are not a situation we confront often, so it is good to be prepared in case something goes wrong.

What Should You Do if Things go Wrong? Panic Attacks

Symptoms include accelerated heart-beat, increase…

The care and precision applied to all tasks has contributed to a very pleasing display in the classroom! It is great to see the way that…
