The intrepid Year 8 students spent three days during Week 3 of Term 4 away from school at beautiful Camp Mornington, nestled in the hills near Waroona.

It was surprising who…

ACC Cross Country 2018

Rehoboth’s second season in the ACC continued earlier this year with the Interschool Cross Country Competition at Perry Lakes Reserve.

The program uses the stories of Holocaust…
