Why Exams?

In recent weeks, students across the State have been tackling WACE exams, and this week we published a whole timetable of approaching Year 7-11 Exams for our students. Yet for many, exams seem a necessary evil. They are time-consuming to study for, and to mark. And what are they testing? Are they really necessary? Aren’t there better alternatives?

The Importance of Being Earnest comes to Rehoboth

With an increasing focus on Drama studies at Rehoboth in recent years it seemed high time that our students were exposed to the wonder of a live professional performance.
