'I am soooo excited! I have been practising running with my Dad!'
During Week 2, we had our Primary Athletics Carnivals. On Tuesday 20 October, the top two male and female competitors from each House in Years 3-6 from both Campuses participated in the Field Events, held at Langford Oval.
We were blessed with a beautiful sunny morning. This was a great day, where the students participated in long jump, turbo javelin, shotput and the 200m, 400m, and 800m running races. Every student that participated in an event earned valuable points for their House.
The top two competitors in each event will have earn a place in our interschool team, where they will represent Rehoboth as they compete against students from other Christian schools on Monday 2 November at the WACSSA carnival.
On Friday 23 October, we had our House Athletics Carnival at Thomas Moore Oval in Wilson, where all the Year 1-6 students from both campuses participated. The students were all very excited, with one student heard saying, ‘I am soo excited! I have been practising running with my Dad!’ (Shiloh – Year 4).
Each student ran in a running race – 60m for the Year 1-2 students and 100m for the Year 3-6 students, earning valuable House points. In the afternoon all students participated in a range of team games. It was great to see a healthy sense of competition between Houses as well as great teamwork and cooperation skills within each House.

Congratulations to Wycliffe House, our winners on the day!
A big thank you to all staff, students, and families that helped to make both days a great success, especially Mrs Henderson and Mrs Marmion for all their hard word. Thank you to our parent helpers, Mrs Radford and Mrs Kuipers, and Diego Riffo-Vera, a Year 12 student.
Mr Hunter did a wonderful job on the microphone, commentating each race and encouraging spectator participation. The day couldn’t have occurred without the line marking, so a big thank you to Mr van der Kooij and Mr Troy Blennerhassett for doing this.
