Our Carnival started with the 50 metre races for those students who are able to swim well. It was great to see that a number of students recorded a personal best time in their races. We awarded…

This year, our College community celebrates 50 years at Rehoboth. We have so much to be thankful to God for over that time. In Colossians 3:15-17 it says:

Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful. Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs…

Pandemonia and da Vinci in the LEX@R Classroom!

In Week 3, a group of students began work in the LEX@R classroom by visiting the fictitious planet of Pandemonia and helping to write their national song, describing the wondrous lives of those who inhabit Pandemonia! Some of the performances were very adventurous!

Last week we spent a day in Fremantle, exploring the machines, drawings, and inventions of Leonardo da Vinci. Many of them we were able to try out and see how they worked.…

Future Australia: A Godly Approach

The Year 10 English Stream 1 class has been considering groups represented in contemporary Australian culture. We have discussed reasons for stereotypes and how these can damage our appreciation of others.

The following statements are taken from students’ short answer responses to the question of how, in future, Australia might be a more Godly culture.

“God made each person to be different, so when we base our opinion of people based on popular stereotypes, we are…

47 Years with Rehoboth

On 18 February we had our first Endeavour Assembly for 2016. Wanting to continue the celebration of Rehoboth’s 50 years, we invited Mr Jan Peletier, our own Mr Peletier’s grandfather, to share with us about his 47-year involvement with Rehoboth.

It was so encouraging to hear that some of the values Mr Peletier Senior saw and endorsed back then are still ingrained in Rehoboth culture today. He commented on how important Christian Education was to him and…

The Interhouse Swimming Carnival was held last Friday and was a fantastic day of competition, House spirit, encouragement, and fun. It was great to see those that have gifts and talents in swimming use them to their best ability, and also those that wanted to just give it a go to earn valuable points for their House.

The scores were close all day long and at the final tally, there was little between the top…

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…
