The students arrived with excitement and nervous energy, but it was great to see true sportsmanship and humility being expressed throughout the day.
On Wednesday 4 August, the Year 2-6 students from both campuses participated in the Primary Run4Bibles Cross Country Carnival, held at Mills Park in Beckenham.
This is always a fun morning, where the Year 5 and 6 students are given the opportunity to run a 2km course, and the Year 2-4 students run a 1.5km course. Every student that participated earnt valuable points for their house. The top 3 runners from each race will have the opportunity to represent Rehoboth at the WACSSA Cross Country Interschool Carnival on Friday 27 August (Week 6 of Term 3).
It was a beautiful, sunny day that God blessed us with. We could not have asked for better weather! The students arrived with a lot of excitement and nervous energy, but it was great to see true sportsmanship and humility being expressed throughout the day. There was a lot of cheering and encouragement heard from the sidelines, which helped to spur on the runners to give their all and finish strong. Well done to the Year 6 students who took on extra responsibilities and leadership roles.

Congratulations to the Rehoboth community!
