Penabur Students visit the Secondary School

In Week 8 of Term 2 a group of students from our sister school Penabur in Indonesia visited the Secondary School.

The week was very eventful and memorable.

Posters with the faces of the Penabur students were stuck to every window in the…

3 Study Hacks for Senior Students

I would like to introduce 3 study hacks to help our students prepare for the challenges of Term 2.

Term 2 will build up in workload and assessments for most students. It is the Term where exams will happen, and most assessments will build up to finish the first semester.

The earlier we know the landscape of Term 2, the more prepared we become in dealing with challenges.

What are study hacks? They are non-standard…

What Goals are Important for Senior School?

Continuing our conversation from the last article, now that we know what requirements there are for achieving the WACE, what other goals are important for Senior School?

To answer that question will depend on the conversations you have with your child. Some questions to consider are:

From Study Retreat to Student Retreat

On Thursday to Saturday, 8-10 February, five teachers and sixty-five students went on a retreat at the Swan Valley Adventure Centre. The focus of the retreat was to help students develop skills that would support their academic journey at Rehoboth. Deeper skills, disciplines, or habits of developing a personal mission statement, communication, looking after oneself, knowing God, and conflict resolution – to name a few – were discussed at the camp. This is why we have changed the name from a “Study Retreat”…

2017 Indonesian Mission Trip

Day 1

Our adventure of a lifetime began at 5:00am on Thursday 13 April, at Perth International Airport. We boarded the plane all rugged up in jumpers and jackets, but the sweaters soon came off when we were welcomed by the sweltering heat of Indonesia in Denpasar, Bali.

After a two-hour stopover in Denpasar, we arrived in Surabaya around 2:00pm. We were picked up by Mrs Anggadjaja and after a short break we headed to…

We travelled on the new bus to the Gallery which saved a lot of time as we used to walk to the train. Both year groups enjoyed seeing last year’s…
