They enjoyed meeting the Year 7 teachers as well other students who will be joining Rehoboth next year.

App-etite for the Digital Future

Digital Technology in the Classroom

Over the past 6 months, our students in Year 7-8 have been learning how to develop mobile applications in Digital Technology. We started from identifying problems in the surrounding, breaking them down into smaller components (Decomposition), exploring the specific needs of the users, and then creating digital solutions that address those needs (User Interface).

Despite being very new to coding, our students rose to the challenge and have done a…

Year 7 Canberra Trip 2018 Day 7 – Sydney Harbour

Our time in Canberra has come to an end. It was another early start as we loaded up the bus and prepared for the 3.5 hr bus journey to Sydney. Although we didn’t have lots of time in Sydney, we did catch a glimpse of some of its colonial-era buildings and iconic Australian landmarks. Our cruise was a relaxing and enjoyable hour’s trip around the harbour, from Circular Quay to Manly, with views of Luna…

Year 7 Canberra Trip 2018 Day 6 – Perisher Snowfields

Snowfights

Today was the big highlight most students had been waiting for – our day in the snow at Perisher! We weren’t disappointed either, as there had been snowfall earlier in the week and it was a relatively warm day (if you can call 5° warm). After travelling nearly 3 hr to get there, our first port of call was the quadlift. This took up the mountain to the perfect spot for a snowfight. Students…

However, our fantastic bus driver also managed to squeeze in a short stop at the National Arboretum for lunch, which has some stunning views across the valley and an awesome playground where we could spend some time playing.

Year 7 Canberra Trip 2018 Day 4 – Government House, CSIRO and Australian War Memorial

It was a long day in Canberra today, with an early start to arrive in time for our tour of Government House and a late finish as we stayed at War Memorial for the Last Post Ceremony. We didn’t struggle to find things to keep ourselves busy in between as we visited the CSIRO Discovery Centre and enjoyed the sunshine in the park at lunch time.

Government House…

Year 7 Canberra Trip 2018 Day 3 – St Andrew’s Church, High Court and Questacon

It’s day 3 already! Being Sunday, the first order of business was a visit to church. It was a beautiful sunny day as we ventured out after another delicious breakfast.

St Andrew’s Presbyterian Church

Singing and worshipping God as a whole group was a special experience, especially when it’s in a building as beautiful as St Andrew’s. This church holds the distinction of being one of the first to be built and Canberra, and is…

Year 7 Canberra Trip 2018 Day 2 – Cockington Green, Gold Greek Station and the Australian War Memorial

Students woke to a misty -4° morning on day 2 (we hope that means there will be plenty of snow on Wednesday!).

Cockington Green Gardens

“The first thing that we did today was going to Cokington Green Gardens. The morning was foggy and fresh and we went the 10 minute walk there. When we got into the garden we all started to explore. The miniature villages were cute and realistic and we saw movie characters…

This year saw the Year 7-10s take part in a couple of different activities over the course of the day, providing an opportunity to use their maths outside the regular classroom. The aim of the activities is for all students to be able to participate fully, and as such, they are not mathematical intensive activities. The…

Steptember: Fundraising for the Cerebral Palsy Alliance

On Tuesday 17 October, we hosted a staff morning tea to raise funds for the Cerebral Palsy Alliance and their September initiative.

September was a month-long event that challenged participants to take 10,000 steps a day for 28 consecutive days to raise awareness for cerebral palsy (CP), as it is a physical condition that affects movement and posture.

CP is an umbrella term that covers a group of conditions affecting a person’s…
