Year 10 Work Experience

The Year 10 Work Experience program was a resounding success again this year. The comments from employers were, on the whole, the best we’ve had. I would like to thank all the employers for their participation and for their encouraging evaluations of our students. Most of the students had a wonderful experience at a large variety of different workplaces. I would like to thank the students for their excellent conduct and courteous behaviour, and their parents for finding the worthwhile placements and for supporting their children during the week. I would also like to thank the teachers who so willingly…

Togas, Music, Food, Dancing, and the Olympics

In Wilson Pre-Primary Red we have been learning about the world’s most spectacular sporting event – the Olympic Games – which are about to start in Rio.

We have been investigating why and how the ancient games started and why we have them today as the Modern Olympics. We brainstormed ideas and posed many ‘I Wonder’ questions. We made suggestions about the things we wanted to do and know. We wondered why the Olympic torches were so important and how they stayed alight. We watched short clips of opening and closing ceremonies, to see how different flames were lit and…

Year 7 Canberra Trip 2016

After another incredibly fast paced tour of the sites and the learning opportunities of Canberra, we are back. The Year 7 trip to Canberra forms part of our students’ studies on the Federal Government, our Constitution and the history of Australia. There were many positives for your children as they developed friendships and experienced many new and interesting places in Canberra in the week leading up to a Federal election.

Each day held highlights of its own and different students enjoyed different aspects of each activity. You can read more from the students here at the trip…

Rehoboth Strong on the WACSSA Soccer Field

The Year 7/8 boys team got off to a very good start to the day with a 4-0 win over Kings College. Diego Riffo-Vera and Freeman Nyatsambo were dominant in the midfield, controlling possession and creating a lot of play going forward. The team continued their good form in their next game against Dale, winning 4-2. Bronitun Pal Suk and Delton Astell were solid down back, whilst Esteban Weenser and Bupe Muyola finished their chances clinically up front. Unfortunately, the next two games did not end with the same result, with 4-1 and 3-1 losses coming at the hands…

Convicts and Colonies – Year 5 Experience Life Behind Bars

On 27 May, the Kenwick Year 5 class went on an excursion to Fremantle Prison as part of their Society and Environment unit – Convicts and Colonies. We had two tours, the first was aimed at the convict era and the second was about more modern times. The students had the opportunity to walk through the entire Prison and go into the cells and experience what it would have been like in the convict era.

At one point our guide acted as a Prison Guard and had the students pretend to be prisoners to give them the experience of…

A Beautiful Morning at the Falls

In our Year 8 Humanities class this Term, we’ve been learning about the different stages of rivers, the activity of each, how humans use these different stages, as well as our impact on the river ecosystem.

On Friday, 27 May, we went to the Lesmurdie Falls as part of our study on rivers in Humanities. It was a bright, beautiful morning and we all appreciated the opportunity to start the day out in Creation by going on a brisk walk down the trail of the falls. The recent heavy rain meant the Falls were just stunning in their…

Psalms from Year 10 English Students

Shout for Australia
JOSIAH HUNTER

Shout for joy to the LORD all the earth,
let His creation worship His wonder.
His majesty is known throughout His people
Like the sun to the day and the moon to the night.
Shout for joy to the LORD all the earth.

For He is patient and kind,
He does not demand His own way,
And keeps no record of wrongs.
He rejoices in the truth and does not delight in evil
He never gives up,
always faithful,
always hopeful,
and endures…

Solar Ovens

For Year 3 Science in Term 1, we learnt about heating. We discovered what materials were good insulators and conductors of heat. At the conclusion of the Term we made Solar Pizza Box Ovens. Here is what we have to say about what we learnt and did:

“Some of the photos show when we were recording how hot it was inside our solar oven. We were a very good team and we had lots of fun making the solar oven. We had fun doing the experiment” – Isaac

“My group put cookies, marshmallows, and chocolates into our oven. We…

Visual Arts: You Human Yet?

During Term 1 we had two very important and informative art excursions.

The first was on 23 March when we visited the Year 12 Perspectives Exhibition at the Art Gallery of WA with both the Year 11 and Year 12 Visual Arts General students. We travelled on the new bus to the Gallery which saved a lot of time as we used to walk to the train. Both year groups enjoyed seeing last year’s cream of the top Visual Arts students from across the whole of WA. Year 11 students particularly liked an artwork entitled Adam, You Human Yet?…
