Growing Through Community

Every day we encounter people who make a difference in our lives. For young people, significant adults who make a difference include parents, grandparents, extended family members, teachers, coaches and friends of the family. Being in community means we are each shaped by the daily interactions we experience. Within our community we have many adults who give their time generously to provide better opportunities for children. We have people of all ages who say thank you, provide a helping hand or an encouraging word to lift others when needed. The mutuality of who we are as people to each other is modelled, caught and shared. Each of us, no matter our age is significant. Each of us adds to community through being connected, giving our best and responding to the needs we see.

As we end this week and move into the next, it is timely to think of those people who have made a difference for us personally and to say thank you. A small note or a word of thanks can make a significant difference. We are greatly enriched by the people God brings into our lives.

Principal's Log

It was a pleasure to be part of the Hymns We Love Service last Sunday at St Mark’s Lutheran Church, Bombala Terrace. The Pacific Senior Voices joined with the St Mark’s congregation and Men’s Choir to celebrate hymns that highlighted the reformation themes of the centrality of Christ’s presence, love and grace in our lives. It was a timely focus as people around the world are celebrating the 500th anniversary of the reformation this year. We thank the Pacific Senior Voices, Mr Adrian King, Pastor Tim Jarick, Pastor Ray Morris, St Mark’s congregation, parents and friends for making the service a meaningful shared experience.

This week, 20 students across Years 7-11 participated in the qualifying event for Future Problem Solving 2017, an international educational program created to develop critical, creative and futuristic thinking skills. Over two hours, students worked in teams to generate challenges, identify problems and prepare an action plan for Medical Technology in the year 2043. If successful, our teams will attend the national conference later this year. Well done to all students who participated and thank you to Mrs Jo Belchamber for her leadership of this enrichment activity.

People, Planet, Purpose, Reformation Starts With Us was the theme of the Australian Conference on Lutheran Education held over the June / July break. Professor Tim Flannery, Director of Catholic Earthcare Jacqui Redmond and Lutheran Dr Mr Norm Habel highlighted the importance of school communities being places where caring for the planet is practiced and taught. Educating young people in what they can do to preserve the planet and improve sustainability was a key theme of the second day with Planet as its focus. This aligns closely with the National Science Week theme of ‘Future Earth’ next week. Professor Tim Flannery highlighted that imagination was our greatest resource. We look forward to the learnings of next week and examining ways in which we as community can continue to grow in our care for the planet.

We wish our Year 7-12 athletes all the best as they compete at the District Athletics Carnival at the end of this week and look forward to the Ensembles Concert, this Friday 11th August at the Church on the Rise, Caloundra at 6.30pm. We also wish our Junior, Middle and Senior College dancers all the best for the Pinnacle Dance Competition this weekend.

We thank God for all of the people who have made a difference in our lives and pray that God would continue to equip us to be blessings for each other and the wider community.

Other Adult Relationships

Adults who serve others are wise role models to children. Many successful adults will tell of a significant person in their lives who took the time to listen and mentor them in their younger years. That person could have been a sports coach, teacher, church worker or extended family friend or relative. Children succeed when adults positively model genuine care, service and help. Reflecting back on your early life, who were the significant adults who freely gave their time to serve and help you? How did that make you feel and, looking back, what effect did that have on you? Also, have you had the opportunity to go back to that person and personally thank them?

We learn so much when these humble acts of service occur between caring adults and children or young people. This selfless giving is the model that Jesus provided for His disciples when they were arguing over who was the greatest. Jesus replied to them, “Who ever wants to become great among you must be your servant and whoever wants to be first must be slave of all. For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve and to give his life as a ransom for many” (Mark 10:43-45). It is part of human nature that we want to compete against one another and judge who is better. However, Jesus points out that serving another human being involves a different mindset and heart-set.

Throughout his life on earth Jesus modelled true service. He was a caring adult who coached, mentored and guided the young and old alike. He gave himself to serve others, through His compassionate presence, His healings, His miracles and His teachings. Climatically, He served His disciples and serves us with His death on the cross, the ultimate act of service. When we feel like we have nothing left to give, when we feel like we don't have time to give and care for others, Jesus stretches out His arms to us and says: let your burdens go, I have come to serve you. 

Let’s pray: Lord Jesus, in our busyness give us the mindfulness and presence to stop and truly serve those in our spheres of relationship. Help us not to compete with others to become the greatest but to influence others with genuine acts of service. And when we feel like we have got nothing left to give, come to us with a special measure of your Holy Spirit to strengthen us with your ever-present grace and power. Amen. 

Pastor Tim Jarick, College Pastor

Growing Character Strengths at Pacific

In offices and classrooms at Pacific, there are posters describing character strengths for a flourishing life. Reflecting on character strengths dates back to Ancient Greece, when Aristotle wrote about them in Nicomachean Ethics. Character strengths are those personal qualities that allow us to achieve excellence:

  • Wisdom – for example open-mindedness, creativity;
  • Courage – for example authenticity, perseverance;
  • Humanity – for example kindness, social intelligence;
  • Justice – for example teamwork, fairness;
  • Temperance – for example forgiveness, self-regulation; and
  • Transcendence – for example gratitude, spirituality.

Interest in character strengths has resurfaced as part of the Positive Psychology movement. Character strengths are dynamic; they are developed over the course of a lifetime through our experiences. Alex Linley has written much in this area and he concludes that if people discover their character strengths and find opportunities to use them, they will feel more engaged in life and are less likely to feel frustrated and disaffected. In Personal Development and Pastoral Care Group classes, we hold conversations with students that focus on their strengths. Older students at the College have completed the online VIA survey to help them identify their strengths. The character strengths have also been added to the threads that are reflected on in Chapel and PCG devotions each week.

National Science Week Activities

Next week, Prep – Year 5 students will celebrate National Science Week, which runs from 12th – 20th August. This year the theme is ‘Future Earth’, centering on sustainability with a focus on the four R’s – Reduce, Reuse, Recycle and Relationships. Next week, Prep – Year 5 students will have the opportunity to participate in various activities such as toy exchanges, science quizzes and, in class groups, students will also participate in hands-on scientific investigations. Further information about the celebrations are detailed later in the newsletter.

A special thank you to Mrs Lu Pollard and Mrs Shelley Hogan who have planned and coordinated the week’s activities.

Prep – Year 2 Athletics Carnival

All Prep – Year 2 students have begun preparing for their Athletics Carnival, which will be held on Monday 28th August. The Carnival will commence at 9.00am and conclude by approximately 10.30am. Parents are most welcome to attend this exciting event.

Year 4 Camp

The Year 4 camp will be held from 24th – 25th August in Alexandra Headland. Further information including permission slips and medical forms, has been forwarded home to parents. If there are any questions regarding this camp, please contact either your child’s class teacher or myself directly.

Restorative Practices

At the College, addressing any problem between student’s focuses on a restorative approach, developing resilience and instilling a culture that promotes support. The restorative approach looks at:

  • What happened?
  • Who’s been harmed?
  • What needs to happen to repair some of that harm?

In this way, the focus is on the harm that has been done and the obligation this brings to those responsible to ‘right the wrong’ as much as possible. It’s an approach that seeks to develop an understanding of the harm caused by the wrongdoer’s behaviour so they can best try to make amends to those most affected. In this way, it’s an educative approach. It also ensures that those who have been most affected by the wrongdoing have the opportunity to be involved in the resolution. 

Research now clearly articulates that short-term ‘solutions’ alone, like punishing students, do not improve the relationships and social factors that can cause bullying. Although the bullying may stop in the short-term, unless these factors are addressed, it is likely to reoccur or become covert.

Mr David Druery, Head of Staff and Students P-5

Important Notices

Family Discounts Extended to Second Child From 2018

The College Council recently agreed to extend family discount from the start of the 2018 school year. As from that date, the second child in the family will receive a 5% discount on tuition fees.

From 2018, the family discount structure will be as follows:

Where there are two (2) or more children from the one (1) family currently attending the College the following discounts will apply to Tuition Fees only:

  • Second child - 5% off Tuition Fees;
  • Third child - 20% off Tuition Fees;
  • Fourth child - 50% off Tuition Fees;
  • Fifth and each additional child - 100% off Tuition Fees.

The discounts are applied to the youngest children in the family and will cease to apply once the number of children currently attending the College is less than two (2). The family discount does not apply to any other fees and charges.

Mr Mike Healy, Business Manager

Lost Property

Our lost property drawers are overflowing with unnamed clothing, shoes and stationary items. If your child is missing anything, please visit the main office to have a look. We also have a number of personal items that are in a container on the desk.

Please check that all uniform and stationary items are clearly labelled. That way, we can get any lost items straight back to your child. At the end of each term, the drawers are emptied and recycled into our emergency clothing cupboards or given to charity.

Food for Thought

How Parents Affect Their Children

You may not know it, but your day-to-day behaviour is shaping the way your child will act for the rest of their life. Psychologists refer to this as the influence of parent socialisation: the way children learn the behaviors and skills necessary to interact in their everyday lives. Parents influence their child’s social skills directly, indirectly and through management of their child’s activities.

Library News

Term 3 Update

Thank you everyone for such a warm welcome to the College. We are already halfway through the term and there is so much excitement building in the library as we approach the next few weeks.

Firstly, our Book Fair commences next week on Monday 14th August. Your support of this initiative means we are able to provide even more quality resources to students.

In Week 7 we will be celebrating Book Week 2017. This year’s theme is ‘Escape to Everywhere’ and we have many fun and engaging activities planned in the library. Class teachers now have details of some great Book Week competitions for students and we are busily preparing our lunchtime activities.

A gentle reminder for students to check for their overdue loans and get these back to the library as soon as possible. As we get closer to the end of the term, these outstanding loans can incur replacement costs.

Year 3 Discovers Caboolture’s Historical Village

On Thursday 3rd August, Year 3 students travelled to Caboolture’s Historical Village for an excursion.

Students participated in four different activities. Firstly, they went to the laundry and learnt how to do washing in the 1900's. Tom said, "All the siblings shared a bath and the bath water, the cleanest went first.” How disgusting!

Then students went to the blacksmith and learnt all about melting metal and how hot it has to be. The blacksmith told us that they would not buy the tools they needed; instead they would make them themselves.

Next, students went to the Gem Society. We learnt all about special gems and crystals and how they smooth them out. Students received a lucky dip of three or more gems each.

The train ride was next and someone had to hold onto a box of money that was stolen by a bushranger! He stole the coins but gave the money to Year 3.

Year 3 students had a great time exploring Caboolture's Historical Village.

Thomas Wegener and Isabella Lee, Year 3 Students

National Science Week

We have a lot of things happening to celebrate Science next week!

The big day will be TUESDAY 15th AUGUST when we have our Science Expo. The amazing Dr Joe will present a Spectacular Science show to all Prep – Year 5 classes. Students are encouraged to come to school dressed as ‘mad scientists’ and to make a gold coin donation for our ‘Grace’ Charity organisation.

The Expo will include stalls outside the gym, which will have hands-on activities, from 11.00am – 2.00pm and a Brain Break lunch provided by Friends of Pacific and 4 Ingredients. Students are able to order a brain break lunch for $5 and/or a Cordial Topper for $1. Students will need to bring in their own water bottles in to receive their cordial topper as we are trying to reduce and reuse, rather than add to our carbon footprint. 

Over the whole week, an Art Installation will be created purely from recycled rubbish and added to each day, student thinking will be displayed under the Year 4 building and a Kahootz Quiz will be held on Wednesday 16th August.

Please come and join in! To download the full program of events and further information, click here.

QAMT Quiz

Can you solve the following problem? A cube of Platinum is exactly 8 x heavier than the same size cube made of Duralumin (an alloy of Aluminium). What would be the side length of a cube of Platinum, which has the same weight as a cube of Duralumin with a side length of 8cm?

Last Tuesday, eight students across Years 7 and 8 attended Immanuel Lutheran College to participate in the Queensland Association of Mathematics Teachers annual inter-school quiz.

The students were tested over five rounds including Estimation, Speed, Problem Solving and General Knowledge. The quiz aimed to engage high achieving Mathematics students and encourage teamwork and cooperation.

In an extremely close tournament, the two Pacific teams finished sixth and seventh place respectively, which was a fantastic achievement. Students competed with great spirit and showed great commitment to solving complex problems. Congratulations to the following students on their efforts:

Team A: Ella Ousley, Lachlan Buchanan, Noah Winten and Piper Reid.

Team B: Olivia Gartrell, Ellie Dixon, Sebastian Box and Noah Smith.

Finally, the answer to the above problem is 4cm!

Humonculous Theatre Company Entertains and Enlightens Students

This week, Year 6 and 7 students enjoyed a wonderful performance called ‘Thoughts Have Feelings Too’ by two amazingly talented and energetic actors from Humonculous Theatre Company.

The performance by Clint (The Professor) and Lauren (Clown) was a funny exploration of four key emotional states experienced in the adolescent years, how to recognise these emotions and how to deal with them positively. The students laughed, clapped and cheered to the antics of the two highly skilled performers who were brought to the school by the Drama Department.

Pacific’s MOCK Murder Mystery – National Science Week

Picture this, its 2045 and wrist micro chipping is commonplace, nanotechnology has almost cured cancer and Dr Garth Webb from Ocumetics is now providing the human race with a bionic lens that makes our 20/20 vision three times better. If you have ever wanted to see that fly on the wall, well now you can. 

However, it is not all good news, because there has been a mock incident on Pacific’s school grounds. It is a whodunit mystery waiting to be solved.

It all begins Monday 14th August at 6.00am. Go to Schoology Courses and using the access code: GBDM7-S64QG, retrieve your first set of clues from the ‘National Science Week: Mock Murder Mystery’ folder. Every day at 6.00am, additional clues will be added to Schoology.

Exactly how many murderers were there? Did they all play a part? One victim and four suspects, can you figure out who all the suspects are from the silhouette?

The winner/s will be announced in the notices on Monday 21st August.

To get everyone thinking, can you solve the following mystery without Googling it?

PLC Netball Club

With one round to go, the end of the season is drawing near. This week will be the last game for our Unicorns and Mustangs. As non-competitive divisions, these age groups do not play finals. One of the more rewarding elements of serving on the committee is witnessing how these girls have developed as individuals and as teams throughout the year. The team spirit is a credit to the players, coaches, manages and parents. Well done to all.

For our other four teams, it’s business as usual as all have qualified for the finals. It is a remarkable achievement to have 100% of our teams qualify and we wish everyone the best of luck.

A reminder of the upcoming events as follows:

  • 13th August – PLC Netball Club is not participating in the CDNA club carnival on this date.
  • 8th September at 3.15pm – Club photos in your netball dress at the Pacific gym.
  • 10th September from 5.00pm to 7.00pm – Presentation night at Laserzone.

As the year progresses it becomes more difficult to select our players of the week. The recipients for their efforts on 5th August are:

  • Unicorns – Shelby Shempf for a great effort;
  • Mustangs – Holly King for her good play;
  • Ponies – Keira Hickey for stepping up to great defence work;
  • Brumbies – Gabby McKenzie for great enthusiasm and effort;
  • Fillies – Nikita Gallagher for a fantastic effort; and
  • Arabians – Atlanta Hopewell for running power and playing centre all game.
