Credo 2017: On This We Stand

On Thursday 21 September, Wilson’s entire student body sang the truths of Scripture together at our school concert, filling the gymnasium with the sounds of “I Believe”.

We were privileged to “meet” Martin Luther, William Tyndale, John Calvin, John Wesley, and John Newton as “The…

2015 NAPLAN Results: Kenwick Primary

Recently we sent home the NAPLAN results for students in Years 3 and 5 for 2015. At Rehoboth, we delight in seeing children’s progress and celebrate success. Many traits of a successful learner and, more importantly, a follower of Christ are not tested by NAPLAN or any other form of examination. As far as Literacy and Numeracy are concerned, NAPLAN is only one form of assessment and parents should be aware that students are constantly…

S. Lewis, and recreated a map of Narnia, highlighting the major events in the story. We did a character study on the main characters…

What is a sukkah? (Pronounced sookah, not sucker!)

On Tuesday, our Year 3 students constructed a sukkah, or booth, according to the Jewish instructions for the Feast of Tabernacles or Sukkoth. Every year, as they celebrated the feast, Jewish people built a structure with four walls; normally three were covered and a roof made from natural plant material, which is shady during the day and open to the sky at night.

For the seven…
