Being a Light to the Nations

Year 5 students recently Skyped Owen and Sarah Ames, who are missionaries in Japan. Over this Term, our class has been learning about Japan, its culture, language, geography, and art, as well as its religion. With less than 0.5% Christians, Japan is a needy place for the gospel.

So, to learn more about this, the class asked questions about the church and cafe outreach Owen and Sara have started. It was great to see every student engaged…

Writing, Illustrating, and Exploring!

What goes into writing a children’s picture book? Primary LEX@R students were amazed to discover the nuances of deceptively simple books in a recent workshop on “Write Your Own Picture Book” at the Literature Centre in Fremantle.

All in a Day’s Work

During the first week of this Term, our entire Year 10 class went out to experience the workplace environment across a large range of industries. We are most grateful to the generous employers who have sown into the lives of our students.

Developing a Sleep Routine

 Sleep is important to ensure the learning from the day is consolidated. You might be surprised to know that studies show that developing a sleep routine actually helps memory and performance. This is especially important in the lead up to, and during, exams. Athletes taper off their training in the lead up to the race, they don’t exhaust themselves. Now is the time for the endurance work – not the night just before an exam.…

Students discussed David Unaipon, the Aboriginal man on our…
