Grateful Hearts Make A Difference

“How Are You?” What if instead of the conventional responses of, “good”, “well” or “fighting fit”, we were to respond with, “grateful”, and mean it. Each of us has a lot to be grateful for. We live in a great place in a great country and we are part of a vibrant learning community. When we start from the perspective of what we are grateful for in our places of living, in our personal relationships and in our work and community, we are reminded of the abundance that we have in our lives. When we appreciate or give thanks for what we have, the world slows down and we are more open to be fully present to the needs of others. We become more hope filled and optimistic. There is greater space for generosity.

In the Bible, we read of the story of the 10 lepers who were cured by Jesus. Only one returned to say thank you. In our daily lives pausing to say thank you can shift our focus to the bigger picture. It is a small act of service that can promote deep joy. Saying thank you to God at the start and end of each day helps us to keep perspective on all that is good. It reminds us to be outward looking in how we might use our gifts to improve the lives of others.

(Adapted from Pastor Ray Morris sermon at St Mark's at Pacific, 9/10/16)

Principal's Log

Next Monday we are looking forward to hosting teachers from Redeemer Lutheran College, Nuriootpa who are coming to learn about our approach to teaching and learning. Discussion will focus on our whole of College pedagogical framework, which incorporates the flexible use of physical and virtual spaces. St John’s Lutheran School from Kingaroy visited us in the last week of Term 3 and were impressed with the calm and engaged nature of our students as well as the richness of learning the students were encountering. Staff and students should feel affirmed in what they have achieved together in supporting the development of an innovative and purposeful learning environment.

We are in the final phase of the selection process for the Director of Staff position, which has attracted high quality experienced candidates from interstate as well as within Queensland, and included applicants from large metropolitan independent schools and regional schools as well as a number of high quality internal candidates. We look forward to finalising this position in the coming week.

It is exciting to learn that our Quberider experiment has been cleared to launch from a Japanese space centre on 9th December. We congratulate Mrs Janine Stone and the team of Cameron Heeney, Harry Stone, Liam Dines, Isaac Barnes and Finn McCarthy for their work on this remarkable project. The team has programmed an experiment that is designed to see if the changes outside the International Space Station affect the inside environment.

We wish our Junior A Girls, Intermediate B Girls, Intermediate B Boys and Senior C Girls basketball teams all the best for their semi final games this week and congratulate the Junior B Boys who have secured a place in the grand final. We thank coaches Mrs Tanya Graves, Mr Scott Crompton, Mr Nico Prinsloo, Mrs Michi Hauser and Mr Mark Hauser for their support and leadership of the students.

We look forward to the return of our Year 6 students from Canberra on Friday. By all accounts they are having a very enjoyable and educational time in our National Capital. Since their arrival on Sunday, students and teachers have visited Questacon, the National Capital Exhibition, Mount Ainslie, Old Parliament House and the Museum of Australian Democracy, Parliament House, the CSIRO Discovery Centre, the Royal Australian Mint, the National Arbortoreum, Government House, Geoscience Australia, the National Film and Sound Archive and the Australian Institute of Sport. At Government House students and teachers were privileged to meet the Governor-General himself, the Honourable Sir Peter Cosgrove AK MC, who spent 20 minutes with them. At Parliament House, students and teachers enjoyed listening to Question Time between our Prime Minister Mr Malcolm Turnbull and Leader of the Opposition Mr Bill Shorten.

 

We also look forward to the upcoming Grandparents’ Day and Student Art Exhibition on Friday 21st October. The Student Art Exhibition provides the opportunity for the College community to enjoy the artistic talent of our young people from Kindergarten to Year 12. It is always a very relaxed and enjoyable evening. We thank Mrs Denise McMahon, Mrs Kym Rodgers and Mrs Rowena Marshall for the considerable work that goes into supporting young people in the development of their artwork as well as the planning and organisation of the exhibition itself.

May we all have grateful hearts that support a generosity of spirit to respond to the needs of those around us.

Dr Bronwyn Dolling, Principal

Important Notices

UPDATE – Roadwork and Changes to Pedestrian Traffic

The upcoming roadwork near the College is part of a $22 million project to improve access to the Sunshine Coast University Hospital. These works will impact on pedestrian movement and will lead to some delays for motor vehicles. Construction is scheduled to commence from mid-October and will generally be undertaken Monday to Saturday between 7.00am and 5.00pm.

Temporary changes to pedestrian access will also be required for the duration of works. The pedestrian facilities on Kawana Way, near the intersection with Kawana Way Link Road, will be closed during daylight hours. Signage and fencing will be in place. The Department of Transport and Main Roads has advised that pedestrian diversions will be in place from Monday 17th October. Pedestrians will be required to detour from just north of the Currimundi Creek bridge on Kawana Way and travel east along the existing footpath behind the forested area, before re-joining Creekside Boulevard. A temporary pedestrian crossing will be installed with a refuge between the two lanes of traffic on Creekside Boulevard. Temporary signage will be installed in advance of the crossing to alert motorists to the changed pedestrian facilities. Motorists will also be required to reduce their speed limit to 40kmh. Pedestrian facilities will not be affected during the evenings. This is to ensure lit footpaths remain accessible outside of daylight hours. Pedestrian facilities are expected to return to normal for the start of the 2017 school year, weather and construction conditions permitting. 

Please click here to download a map, which outlines these changes. Students and parents are encouraged to familiarise themselves with these changes in preparation for the commencement of works.

Student Attendance Before and After School

A friendly reminder that students should only be in attendance at the College from 8.00am each morning, as this is when formal staff supervision commences. Students in Prep to Year 6 are able to attend the before school care program and parents are invited to contact the College to organise enrolment if this is necessary for your family. Staff will be supervising the P-2 car park and Meridan Plains car park until 3.30pm and in the Year 3-12 car park and the Woodlands Boulevard bus stop until 3.40pm each afternoon. All students should be collected from school by this time.

Due to the building works which have commenced, students waiting to be collected from P-2 are asked to wait with the designated teacher at the Prep steps each afternoon. Students are not to wait in front of the library as there is no supervision in this area. Parents of Prep to Year 6 students who are unable to collect their children by 3.30pm each afternoon are asked to contact the College to enrol in the after school care program. Any students not collected from the P-2 car park area by 3.30pm will be taken to the main administration office, where staff will contact parents. They will be supervised in this area until collected.

For Years 3-12, students will be asked to wait for parents in the new bus sheds in the Year 3-12 car park. This will allow students to be fully supervised and to avoid the areas currently under construction. We ask that parents too reinforce these arrangements with their child so that there is no confusion in the afternoon. Any students not collected from the car park area by 3.40pm will be taken to the middle/senior administration office, where staff will contact parents. They will be supervised in this area until collected.

Students who wish to use the library for study may attend until 4.00pm but should be promptly collected by parents at this time as there is no further supervision after 4.00pm. Students are not to wait outside the library. Any students not collected from the library by 4.00pm will be taken to the main administration office where staff will contact parents. They will be supervised in this area until collected. On Year 4-6 SCISSA training afternoons, the library will remain open until 4.15pm so that students catching the school bus or being collected by parents can be supervised until this time.

Any activities organised by the College before and after school will be supervised by staff as normal and parents are asked to drop or collect their students at the appropriate times, advised by the supervising staff.

We appreciate your cooperation in assisting us to keep your children safe.

Mrs Tanya Crooks, Director of Staff

From the College Pastor

Off-Centred Serving

Whoever wants to be first must be your servant – just as the Son of Man did not come into the world to be served but to serve and to give his life as a ransom for many. (Matthew 20:27-28)

When I got married, I thought I was the centre of the universe for my wife. I fell in love and my wife lavished her attention, time and affection on me. Things were sweet, as they are when you are first in love. But then, when we decided to start a family, the planets realigned. When our first child was born I soon realised I was not the centre of my wife’s universe anymore. This helpless, crying, baby was now the centre of our lives. It took a fair bit of processing for me to comprehend the change in our relationship. Both of us caring for this new addition to our family, became our main priority. I had to take the role of second fiddle and help my wife more than ever. I had to learn not to be served but to serve.

That’s what Jesus said about himself. The Son of Man has come into the world not to be served but to serve. As disciples of Jesus, we don’t sit back and wait for the world to serve us; we’re not the centre of the universe anymore. We are called to be proactive and serve others. To take initiative and see where people are in need and help serve them. To put other people first, before ourselves.

That’s the way we do things in our school community here at Pacific. We serve others. We encourage, model and learn this culture of serving. We use terms like ‘servant leadership’. We encourage student leaders to ‘lead from behind’ to model humility and to have a quiet confidence in themselves and their abilities, rather than operate from a position of authority. All of us can exercise leadership in this way and by undertaking small simple acts of service that influence others.

At this time of the schooling year, Year 11 students are encouraged and challenged to stand up and serve in leadership roles for our College. The message that these students, and the entire College community, needs to hear is how are we going to practice these words of Jesus and serve others? How are we going to serve rather than be served?

Cyber Safety

This week, Senior College students viewed the first part of ‘Tagged’, a film created as part of the Australian Government's Cybersmart initiative (managed by the Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA)). The film is a case study that outlines the ramifications when young people make poor choices with digital media, highlighting the impact on various stakeholders such as peers, parents, the school, the community, the police and the individual.

‘Tagged’ encourages young people to reflect on their use of technology and the real life consequences that can be caused by poor choices regarding cyber-safety, sexting and digital reputation. Personal and peer safety and responsibility are crucial to maintaining positive online interactions and digital reputation into adulthood.

Digital reputation and use of technology continues to be a focus at the College. ‘Care, Dignity and Respect’ is a key theme that the College emphasises in building relationships and growing others and self. Whether a young person is using a pen and paper or an electronic device as a communication tool, they should be thinking before posting or writing and when at school, using the device for educational purposes only. As a community, we all need to be mindful of the instantaneousness, public nature, highly accessible, global scope and reach and also the permanency of electronic communication.

ACMA states, “As a parent, you play a crucial role in helping your child have safe and positive experiences online. By understanding how children and young people use the internet, the risks they face and the strategies to manage risks, you can help enable your children to enjoy the best of the online world”. For further information and to access the clip, visit: http://www.cybersmart.gov.au/tagged/parents.htm.

We all have a responsibility to think before we act and post to ensure the ‘care, dignity and respect’ of others and ourselves. Senior College students will conclude viewing this film at the Week 4 assembly.

Year 12, 2017

On Wednesday 12th October, a group of current Year 12 student leaders joined with Year 11 in their Personal Development lesson to inspire and engage the cohort. The session aimed to encourage our Year 11 students to begin thinking about their Year 12 journey. Students discussed leadership, service, academics and social engagement.

Over the past five years, this experience has provided students the space to lead and pass on their perspectives about the Year 12 journey and has always been a memorable session.

The lesson ended with a commissioning from our current student leaders to the Year 11 students. Thank you to Emily Brewster, Jack Bange, Chelsea Ricotta, Elsa Jonsson, Jack Gretton, Will Minns, Hannah Abraham, Tyler Turner, Mia Elsing, Dylan Coleman, Georgina Snelling, Ebony Nykiel and Ben Golden for leading this lesson.

Welcome to Term 4

Welcome to Term 4. We hope all families spent a relaxing and enjoyable time together over the holidays. The term has started at a fast pace with Year 5 students attending their Outdoor Education camp last week. There are also a number of important College events scheduled for this term.

Grandparents Day
The sense of community that exists at the College is a fundamental and important feature of a Pacific education. On Friday 21st October, we welcome grandparents and family friends of our Prep to Year 5 students to the College for a morning of activities. The morning offers students the opportunity to show and involve their extended families in their daily experiences at school. Visitors will spend time in classrooms before attending morning tea, where they will be entertained by a variety of musical performances.

Student Art Exhibition
All students in Prep to Year 5 will have a piece of artwork on display at the Student Art Exhibition to be held on Friday 21st October. The Exhibition commences at 6.00pm in the Pacific Art Gallery. Parents, families and all members of the College community are invited to attend the exhibition and view the outstanding artwork produced by our students.  

Years 4-7 Musical
On Saturday 12th November, the Year 4-7 Musical Production of Mulan will be held. Further information regarding performance times and ticketing can be found later in the newsletter. 

P-5 Outdoor Education News

Year 5 Camp

Last week I had the pleasure of attending the Year 5 Outdoor Education Camp at Bornhoffen in the Numinbah Valley. The weather was perfect, the food was fantastic, the accommodation very comfortable and the facilities first rate. Students participated in a variety of activities designed to promote leadership, cooperation, teamwork and self-esteem. It was great to witness their enthusiasm. Students accepted all the challenges put before them, acted responsibly and enjoyed themselves.

We thank Year 5 teachers, Mrs Sarah Atkinson, Mr Scott Compton and Mrs Karen Costa, and Outdoor Education Aides Josh, Maddi and Eliza for their professionalism, care and support of our students while on camp.

Year 3 Camp

All Year 3 students will depart for their Outdoor Education Camp at Luther Heights in Coolum on Thursday 27th October (Week 4). Year 3 parents are reminded that all consent and medical forms need to be returned to your child’s classroom teacher as soon as possible.

‘You Can Do It’ - Term 4

Educational research recognises that the social and emotional development of students is just as important as their academic development. “Non-cognitive aspects of students development, including their attitudes, values and a range of social and emotional capabilities, strongly influence their achievement, happiness and relationships” (Providing All Children With Foundations, page xi M.E Bernard 2007). All Prep to Year 5 students at Pacific complete the ‘You Can Do It’ program and will be focusing on developing confidence this term.

Confidence means not being afraid to make mistakes, standing up tall and speaking with a loud voice. Even in the face of adversity, confident people do not look upon themselves as failures. Examples of confident behaviour include:

  • Raising hands to answer or ask questions in class;
  • Accepting oneself and not thinking badly about yourself when you make a mistake;
  • Being independent; and
  • Saying ‘I can do something’ instead of ‘I can’t’.

Parents can support and develop confidence in their children by always encouraging effort and independence. Some simple ways to encourage independence could be allowing your child to walk from the car to their classrooms unattended and letting them carry their own school bags. Communication is also fundamental to developing confidence in children. Explain to your child that everyone has the choice to be an optimist (predict success) or a pessimist (predicts failure) and it is how we think that dictates how we act. When a child acts confidently, give praise.

Further resources can be found on the You Can Do It Positive Parenting website at: http://www.youcandoitparents.com/. The site contains practical and informative ideas for parents to help their children develop confidence, persistence, resilience, organisational skills and the ability to get along with others.

Year 5 Camp

Last Wednesday, the Year 5 students set off on an adventure and arrived with smiling faces at the magnificent camp, Camp Bornhoffen. With great activities planned and beautiful weather, it was going to be amazing. The activities included creeking, climbing Mt Zimba, abseiling and relaxing with some art. Throughout this camp we made lots of new friends. We overcame steep mountain climbs to be met with amazing views, experienced freezing water while crevassing the rock slides, felt exhilarated when lowering ourselves down the rock wall beside a cascading waterfall and were invigorated as we created a 3-D clay art piece using pieces from the environment. With each activity there was always a challenge, but we had a great feeling of satisfaction and success once we had completed the tasks! The instructors were kind and helpful, making sure our safety came first. After activities, we would return to camp and the smell of amazing food that the chef had freshly cooked. We loved Camp Bornhoffen!

Year 8 Geography

On Tuesday, 87 Year 8 students visited Happy Valley, Caloundra for an outdoor learning experience. The purpose of the field trip was to learn about coastal landscapes and landforms. While exploring, students rotated through four outdoor classroom experiences, run by Year 8 Geography teachers, to understand how beaches, rocky platforms and dunes are formed and how humans have impacted on the pristine landscape. At the conclusion of the day, students had an understanding of how to manage and protect our beaches, so future generations can also enjoy the beauty and wonder of the coast.

Quberider Update

We're heading to the International Space Station (ISS) aboard a Japanese H-IIB!

 

In September, Space-X's Falcon 9 rocket caught fire during a pre-launch test at Cape Canaveral. Space-X was scheduled to carry Quberider's payload and Cape Canaveral was to be the launch site. Since the explosion, everything has needed to be altered in the scheduling of all of these procedures. The launch will now take place from the Tanegashima Space Centre on 9th December aboard a Japanese H-IIB rocket. Data will start being sent back to Earth around 19th December.

Above left is a picture from the Quberider Houston partner, Jerry, as he prepares to drop off our ISS bound SAGAN board, which is programmed with students' code. The student code and related tests have been cleared for the December 9th launch. In pre-testing our code onsite, we have taken a snap of the Student Space Group (Finn was absent) using the Pi camera. Hopefully we will get some interesting pictures returned to us as well as data from the sensor recordings.

CareMonkey

At the end of Term 3, information was sent home regarding to a new health and safety application being used by the Pacific Sports Department called CareMonkey.

What is CareMonkey?

  • An innovative, parent-controlled electronic medical form for schools and sporting groups with a duty of care. 
  • An electronic version of the paper-based consent forms currently used.
  • An online avenue providing parents with the opportunity to update medical information promptly, regularly and accurately.
  • An application that allows our teachers/coaches immediate access to the emergency information provided.
  • An application that allows access online and offline from all of our game and sports event locations.

Over the holidays an email from the CareMonkey system was sent to parents inviting you to enter the details for your child in an electronic medical form. Parents are asked to please check their emails and complete the required information. Reminder emails from this system will be sent in due course to those who have not completed the process.

If you have any concerns with this application or your profile set up, please contact our Sports Aide, Mrs Natalie Campbell, directly at: ncampbell@pacluth.qld.edu.au. Thank you to the many families who have already completed this process.
