In Pre-Primary we utilise our beautiful playground as an addition to our classroom. This Term we have been exploring “Mini Beasts: God’s Little Helpers.” Our outdoor environment has been a huge assistance in growing our understanding of Mini Beasts and how God has called us to care for His creation.

God created worms to help keep the soil healthy and help water to get to the plants roots. They also help get rid of food…

House Athletics 2017

This year’s House Athletics Carnival took place on Thursday 17 August and we were blessed with an awesome late winter/early spring day after having to postpone the carnival the week before.  

As always, the aim of the day was mass participation – and like last year, everyone that participated took all their throws and jumps and didn’t give up after the first trial. There was even time for a shuttle relay this year, with Wycliffe House being the winner. 

We were fortunate to finish all events on the day, even with…

LEX@R: Fibonacci, Frobenius, and McNugget Math

The Year 5-6 Learning Extension @ Rehoboth (LEX@R) class believes if Math is the problem, then Food is the solution!

As we introduced our new unit, “Maths, Musos, and Masterpieces” LEX@R students have been stuck into some unusual problems.

For instance, what can you do if you need to order 43 McNuggets, but they only come in packs of 6, 9, and 20? It was necessary for us to partake of a few McNuggets ourselves…

Wanjoo: NAIDOC Week 2017

NAIDOC stands for National Aborigines and Islanders Day Observance Committee. NAIDOC is celebrated all over Australia, focusing on the recognition and celebration of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures. It actually was started by an Aboriginal Christian man, William Cooper!

After a service in 1884, Cooper approached the pastor saying “I must give my heart to God…”. From there, he began a lifelong work to fight for Aboriginal rights.…

We saw what recycled material looks like from our local recycling bins. One student commented that it looked like a dune made of paper. We observed as…

What’s for Lunch? Indigenous Food Incursion

At the end of Term 2 the Year 1 and 2 classes had a visitor! Mrs Dalais was our special guest and she shared a wealth of knowledge with us all about our topic for the Term – FOOD.

We all sat around the Swan River and helped to sort a selection of goods into three lunchboxes.

One lunchbox was the hard, round, bark from a tree. This was what Aboriginal people used to use.

Year 10 Experience the World of Work

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. For a couple of students, it was a steep learning curve, but thankfully everyone returned to school safely, mostly exuberant from the experience and after having had another week off school.

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