Wow, what a week! We hope you all enjoyed Arts Festival 2020.
The Arts Festival kicked off with the opening assembly on Tuesday morning. Students did a great job unpacking the Festival theme of Embracing Diversity.
This theme carried through to this year’s Art Exhibition. Artworks celebrating the great diversity found in God’s creation and also in people’s ethnicity and culture were on display. The Exhibition was open for the whole week and included works from students at both campuses, Kindy through to Year 12. It was once again a highlight of the Arts Festival. God has indeed gifted our students with artistic and creative talents.
The Festival week also provides our Food Technology students with opportunities to develop their food service skills, and this year did not disappoint. Morning tea was served by the Year 12 Food Technology class at the opening assembly, which was enjoyed by staff and parents. The Year 10 Food Technology class did a fantastic job creating a wide variety of Asian street foods and set up their food tables alongside the amazingly talented Music students at the Open Mic lunchtime concert on Thursday. We were blessed with beautiful weather as we fundraised for the upcoming Leonora Bush Mission.
The Pop Up Café also made an appearance at the Performing Arts Showcase on Wednesday evening. It was a great opportunity for our Year 11 Food Technology students to develop their barista and food service skills.
The Performing Arts Showcase is fast becoming an unmissable annual event. Mr Thomson and his capable crew did a truly amazing job pulling this jam-packed evening together. Those in the audience were blown away by the incredible creative talents of our students. Performances ranged from well-polished class bands to impressive drama items and sublime solo performances. The investment in our Creative Arts programs over the last few years is truly paying off in the level of talent we have at Rehoboth.
Thank you to all the staff and students who contributed to make this year’s Arts Festival a huge success!
