I would like to congratulate the Year 10 Work Experience students on their excellent conduct in the workplace. We received glowing feedback from many employers.

I would like to say a big “thank you” to the employers who took time out to teach the…

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…

Many other skills and tasks go together to give an assessment of a…
