Around the World with Pre-Primary

God has created our world with so many different cultures, customs, plants, and animals to explore!

We started our Term with Australia, and had lots of fun with our bush campsite, campfire, and learning about Australian animals. We also looked at Aboriginal art and dance, and had a go at doing our own dot paintings. It was quite hard!

From Australia, we set off to other parts of the world! We looked at African stories,…

Next, we focused on three different styles of mask: abstract, tribal and realistic. We looked at the features and colours used in these styles. Students thought about their own personality and chose a style that…

Lots and lots of trucks, pouring concrete from long, insect-like arms and it’s all because we are getting a new gymnasium. Outside our classroom is a construction site and we get to see it every day!

We have been keeping a journal, writing and…

Year 4s Learn How to Care for God’s World

The Year 4s have been very proactive since their excursion to the RRRC. They have been careful in what they are throwing out and how they could reuse other materials. They are so enthusiastic about recycling that they wanted to do an assembly about how our school could look after God’s world. It’s great to see that our young children think about how we need to be good stewards for God and future generations.

House Athletics 2017

This year’s House Athletics Carnival took place on Thursday 17 August and we were blessed with an awesome late winter/early spring day after having to postpone the carnival the week before.  

As always, the aim of the day was mass participation – and like last year, everyone that participated took all their throws and jumps and didn’t give up after the first trial. There was even time for a shuttle relay this year, with Wycliffe House being the winner. 

We were fortunate to finish all events on the day, even with…

LEX@R: Fibonacci, Frobenius, and McNugget Math

The Year 5-6 Learning Extension @ Rehoboth (LEX@R) class believes if Math is the problem, then Food is the solution!

As we introduced our new unit, “Maths, Musos, and Masterpieces” LEX@R students have been stuck into some unusual problems.

For instance, what can you do if you need to order 43 McNuggets, but they only come in packs of 6, 9, and 20? It was necessary for us to partake of a few McNuggets ourselves…

NAIDOC stands for National Aborigines and Islanders Day Observance Committee. NAIDOC is celebrated all over Australia, focusing on the recognition and celebration of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures. It actually was started by an Aboriginal Christian man, William Cooper!
