Progress, Planning, and Change

It is important to have an aim and a goal as we plan for the future. As a College, that is why we are currently involved in strategic planning, looking ahead at the next four years, and asking the question – what will the school look like in 2019? When we go somewhere we should be able to see the ripples of our life in our rear-view mirrors. It’s a bit like being an Olympic…

Whiteman Park

Last Thursday, the Year 1 and 2 students took the great trek to Whiteman Park near the Swan Valley. There was much excitement on the bus, and after many “are we there yet(s)?” we finally arrived! We had recess in the beautiful grounds, and then we were split into two groups.

Group One went to an old school house where they were shown the gentle-natured Blue Tongue Lizard and sleepy Bobtail Lizard. The…

Last Friday, Mr Hobday came to teach us how to make hovercrafts and rockets. Firstly, he asked us what a mechanical engineer does. I said that they build rockets and robots.

Then, Mr Hobday showed us how to make hovercrafts. We stuck the pop-top lids on a CD and tightened a balloon on. Then, we blew it up and let it go.

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.

They awarded…

We prepared songs, a simple craft, and morning tea to share with the residents. We prayed that we would be able to share some joy and brighten the day of…
