Addressing the Issues: Telling Stories

I love stories. Most of us do. The best part of teaching history for me is the stories of people, how they faced the circumstances that they did, and how they often overcame adversity, no matter how great the challenge. That is why it is great to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Rehoboth. Through this, we get to tell a great story of vision, perseverance, sacrifice, and God’s faithfulness as people came…

LEX@R is our learning extension program at Rehoboth. In 2015, The Year 7-8 LEX@R students have been exploring the theme of global justice for over a Term.

Over the course of Term 4, Year 2 Kenwick students completed a Homework Booklet that included a range of different projects.

Lines: Year 12 Student Poem makes Primo Lux

Joslin’s poem “Lines” was recently chosen from amongst Year 10-12 students entries from all over WA, and has been published in Primo Lux, a prestigious anthology of poetry. Here is her entry:
LINES
Lines mar his skin, the ravages of time
trace jagged patterns across his aged face.
His once proud, youthful confidence, sublime,
stolen by society’s inexorable chase
after ephemeral physical perfection.
Gleaming hair, glistening…

Addressing the Issues: Christmas Brings Hope

It seems to me that there are two kinds of hope. The first is a natural or human hope. This is based on statistical likelihood or probability. This kind of hope is sometimes based on past experiences, or what we wish is going to happen. You see this demonstrated by the people who sacrifice time and money on a slim chance of success queuing for Lotto tickets. This kind of hope is usually fragile and…

It was good to see that many students advanced to the next swimming level. Well done to everyone!

Here are some stories the students in…

I was very proud of the children…

Buying a Goat

In class this Term, we have been reading two books called Beatrice’s Goat and One Hen. Both of these books are based on the true story of children in Uganda whose lives changed when they received a goat or a chicken. Because of the gift, they were able to save enough money so that they could go to school and help their families and their community in a really BIG way!

We thought… wouldn’t…
