Addressing the Issues: A Message from a Year 12 Student

Last week, Josiah Kappert, one of our leaving Year 12 students, delivered an address on the final day in a farewell assembly to our Year 7-11 students.

For all those who have come to know Josiah over his time at Rehoboth, he is a remarkable young man.

Mr Stirling

Now I come, on…
