Our Constitution lays out the basis for ACE in the belief that the Bible is the infallible Word of God and we are to accept it as our guide and final authority in matters pertaining to faith and life.
The Board have appointed a task group for the purposes of reviewing this important document. The aim of this task group, with the input of appropriate legal advice, is to ensure that our Constitution remains relevant and up to date. It is anticipated that a draft will be submitted to ACE members for review prior to the General Meeting, to be held in October 2014. Members will have the opportunity to comment on any proposed revisions before the task group submit of final version for voting at the 2015 AGM.
Locus2019 Strategic Plan
An important part of being a good steward lies in planning for the future. God has richly blessed our Association over its 50 year history, and we have a responsibility before Him to nurture that which He has placed into our hands. In 2016 we are proud to launch a new strategic direction for the period 2016-2019 that will see Rehoboth become a leader in the provision of 21st Century learning.
21st Century learning encapsulates the idea that learning is most effective when it takes place in a context that promotes collaboration, interaction, and community, and where decisions regarding the resourcing, staffing, and the environments in which learning takes place are geared around these contexts. It is driven by the shift from an industrial-based 20th century model of education (which typically aimed to “impart” knowledge to students), to a recognition of a “knowledge economy” and an accompanying skills-based model of education that emphasises collaborative approaches to problem solving and the student’s own “discovery” of knowledge via the application of learnt skills. We believe this model of education lends itself well to developing an understanding that there is no area of life which can be considered neutral or where God is not Lord and King.
Based on Ephesians 2:8-10 and firmly embedded in our Christian ethos, our Locus2019 Strategic Plan describes seven key initiatives we will be implementing over the next four years to help us provide an exemplary academic education, develop well-rounded students, and position Rehoboth strongly for the future.
