Rehoboth Sets a High Standard

Is Rehoboth the school for your child?  This is a great question to ask, and can be answered in a number of ways. We would say that, first and foremost, we are aiming to grow Christian character, teach students a Christian (Biblical) world view, and challenge them to be disciples of Jesus Christ.

But what about the academics? As a school, we also believe in excellence in our academic and vocational programs. But to…

Testing Bridges

Our learning extension students have seen a busy two weeks of designing, building, and testing bridges. Having designed and tested our bridges to try and make them strong enough to carry a 1kg weight, the engineers in the LEX@R classroom faced the rigours of the Year 12 Physics students.  The Year 12s tested the weight bearing capacity of our designs, but also made insightful comments on the strengths and weaknesses of each design.

Be Prepared

As we are in the middle of the first Semester Exams, I thought it would be wise to complete the theme of exams (particularly as Year 11s are now underway and this will be followed by the Year 7-10 exams). Exams are not a situation we confront often, so it is good to be prepared in case something goes wrong.

What Should You Do if Things go Wrong? Panic Attacks

Symptoms include accelerated heart-beat, increase…

Bridging the Gap

“Bridging the Gap” is the theme for the Year 7/8 LEX@R Program in Term 2. Students will be building their own bridge and having it tested by the Year 12 Physics students for strength and load bearing capacity. Later we will consider some metaphorical bridges, debating their existence and usefulness. Part of the Research and Design process for our bridge building has been to look at different bridge designs, the forces acting upon a bridge structure, and…
