Reflections on a Terrific Open Day
One of the biggest community days on the Rehoboth calendar is the Wilson Campus
Open Day was held this year on 2 November, with new additions including giant Zorb balls and Malaysian satays.
Here are reflections from students who came and enjoyed the day:
‘I think Open Day was terrific because of all the stalls and yummy fairy floss. I especially like the choir because I loved the songs and how it made others joyful. I loved how in one room there were pictures of kids in Rehoboth from a few years ago. Also, there were many entertaining rides and a petting zoo with animals’ – Melody
‘Two Year 11 students, Jason and Chris, hosted the performances, including IMP students and the Wilson and Kenwick school bands. The school choir sang five songs which were: “Coffee”, “Bwana Asifewe”, “Loch Lomand”, “Moon River” and “Java Jive”. The hosts also interviewed students and staff which was very entertaining’ – Ben
‘Open Day was good because I could play fun games and enjoy tasty food. My favourite game was the Zorb Balls because I got to go inside and try to move. The yummiest food that I recommend is the fairy floss, which is very sugary and sweet. I saw lots of my friends and I have done lots of exciting things’ – Xin
Each stall offered different produce and activities, also raising money to go towards resources and STEAM equipment. Almost $4,000 was raised from the day, which is a huge blessing!
A big thank you to staff and parents who work tirelessly to make the event happen, especially Mr van der Kooij and Mrs Muilenburg, as well as over 55 student volunteers from the Primary School and Secondary School.
Keep your eyes open for next year’s Open Day when the Rehoboth community comes together again to celebrate God’s faithfulness to our school.
