Standing Ovation for OCEANfest

Thank you to everyone for your generosity, hospitality and commitment to making the OCEANfest such a success.  Staff, students, parents and sponsors came together to provide an event where people could connect, relax, have fun and be entertained.  Repeated themes from people new to our community included amazement at the quality of the event, how talented our students were and the warm, welcoming, creative, professional and connected feel of our community.  Thank you to everyone for playing your part so well.  A particular thank you to our OCEANfest leaders, Mrs Teena Thompson, Mrs Bron Butler, Mrs Jenny Lee, and Mrs Tracey Hindmarsh and Parent Class Representatives.  There were many people who had spent hours making products, planning, organizing, to ensure the night went very well and then the cleanup and finalisation of activities. Thank you to our sponsors and many families who generously donated their time and contributed financially.  As someone who had the privilege of standing on the sidelines and saw you bring an amazing event together as parents, staff, and students …a grateful standing ovation!

Principal's Log

The tremendous capacity of this community is brought home to me constantly.  There is a strong sense of can do.  As we move into the next phase of the College’s development we are wanting to capture future focused thinking from parents, students and staff.  To that end we will be conducting small group focus sessions with parents from each of the four sections of the College in the final weeks of this term.  An email has been sent inviting families to nominate to be part of the breakfast sessions which commence in the week beginning the 3rd September. Staff, student leaders, Friends of Pacific leaders and College Council members will be part of a strategic consultation day to be held on Saturday, 13th October which will include the feedforward provided through these breakfast sessions.  Families not able to attend the breakfasts can still contribute to the thinking by completing this year’s annual online review sent out in the week of 31st July 2018.  This will be open for input until Friday September 7th.   

Congratulations to our runners who competed in the Sunshine Coast Marathon over the weekend.  This was the final event of their running season which included the Caloundra foreshore (3km or 10km) and the Sunshine Coast Marathon (2km, 5km or 10km). Thank you to students, parents and staff who have supported this club very capably led by Mr Pohlner.

Staff and students have engaged enthusiastically in Book Week, including coming to school yesterday dressed as one of their favourite book characters.  The creativity in the cakes made by parents to represent a children’s book was amazing.  Engagement in Book Week is just one of the ways in which we are generating a love of reading so important for both academic and personal wellbeing.  We thank Mrs Sue Warren for her leadership of a love of literature through this event and a variety of other activities that have stimulated a strong sense of the magic of books. 

We thank God for the people of this community.

Wise Parents

Stay close to wisdom, and she will keep you safe. Love her, and she will watch over you.

 (Proverbs 4:6)

Teenagers are often portrayed as rebellious young people who are greatly influenced by peer pressure and do not listen to the advice of their parents. If we were to take “A Current Affair” and other similar portrayals in popular media as true, this would be our perception of all teenagers. But we know that this is a gross generalisation and not the truth for all young people.  Many teenagers do listen to their parents and are open to listening to their wisdom and advice. That’s the encouragement we receive from the fourth chapter of Proverbs. The writer of Proverbs says; Listen to your parents and elders, stay close to the wisdom they have to offer. Learn to seek after it, value, love and hold onto their knowledge and understanding. In Middle Senior Chapel this week, several parents from the PCG who lead chapel were present and involved in the service. The reason for this is that our thread these two weeks has been parental involvement in school and learning.

This term there have been some great and engaging times in Middle Senior Chapels and on Wednesday there was a different dynamic as parents were present and involved in the service. One thing that stood out to me and others was the Lord’s Prayer which was led by a Year 8 student and his Dad. Having a father and son stand together to lead our community in praying Jesus’ prayer to his Heavenly Father was a very apt example of this thread of parental involvement. Parents can give great encouragement, strength, wisdom and courage to their children. Parents can help their children to pray.

Parenting can sometimes be viewed as one of the toughest jobs in the world but parents who have the wisdom to stand beside their teenagers and accompany them through their journey to adulthood is what the world needs. Parents who are wisely involved in their children’s lives and teenagers who hold onto the wisdom and support of their parents is a real gift. A gift that comes from God. Let’s give thanks to God when it does happen and pray to God for it to happen.

Ps Tim Jarick, College Pastor

Do Your Kids Respect You? 9 Ways to Change Their Attitude

We often forget that children aren’t born with a built-in sense of respect for others. While each child has a different personality, all children need to be taught to be respectful. From birth, children learn to manipulate their world to get their needs met—this is natural. But it’s our job as parents to teach them respectful ways of doing this.

Whilst our final tally is being calculated this week, we would like to take this opportunity to thank some very special people.

To Mrs Teena Thompson and family – we thank you for your countless hours of organisation, preparation, phone calls, emails and so much more over the past six months as festival coordinator. Your hard work continues post event and we cannot thank you enough for your time, energy, patience, professionalism and positive approach. You are amazing!

To Mrs Bron Butler – thank you for your vision in the master plan layout! We’ve had so many positive comments from guests who said it was so much more than a fete! Thank you also for your time, patience, hard work, thorough approach and quick problem-solving skills so everyone could enjoy a fun, safe and exceptionally well-planned event.

Thank you also to our incredible team of Parent/Class Representatives and helpers, led by Mrs Tracey Hindmarsh. Each and every stall added to the success of the event and we thank you for your leadership and coordination.  

Thank you to our many sponsors and donors without whom this event would not be possible. Your support has been invaluable and we greatly appreciate your generosity.  

Finally, thank you to all the parents and staff who bought items for the cent auction, or baked a cake, handmade treats, to those who donated time or money, who brought their children, grandparents, friends and neighbours along… and enjoyed an August night under the stars at PLC.

Book Week Activities

Students have been having fun in the library with our activities to celebrate Book Week, with its theme of Find Your Treasure. Using the photo booth app on an iPad, students have been dressing up and taking photos with their friends. The treasure hunt has also proved popular, with new clues to solve every day and new treasure to find. Pirate-themed games such as walk the plank, pin the pearl on the oyster and the ring toss over the pirate hooks attracted students of all ages.  Congratulations to everyone who dressed up for Book Week as their favourite book character. There were some amazing costumes on display and everyone had a great time.

Vibration Sensation

By Taylor, Kirrily and Kyla

The students of Year 6 have been learning about circuits in science this term. We have been experimenting with the different types or insulators and conductors. In our most recent experiment we have made robots that had the ability to create pictures. We interviewed some of the students and our teacher about the robots. We asked Maryanne how her group created it and was it successful. Her response was this. ‘The plastic cup already had a hole in it and then our teacher, Mrs Sydes said there was a little trick for putting the motor in. All we had to do was cut the hole a little bigger and push the motor in. We also had to put blue tack around it and attach the pens so that it could draw. Yes, it was successful because the robot was vibrating, and it drew a picture.’

When we asked Paige these same questions she said, ‘We cut some slits on the top of the cup and then we tried to stick the motor in the plastic cup, but it didn't go into the cup properly. Then we tried to stick the rubber in on the motor, but it didn't go on because the motor wasn’t in the middle. It was not successful because the motor wasn’t in the middle so then the rubber couldn't spin and vibrate the cup.’

Last of all we asked our Science teacher running the practical, Mrs Sydes, what did she have to do to set up the experiment and were the students as successful as she thought they would be. ‘I had to do a risk assessment to make sure everyone was safe, and we had the right equipment. I also had to make the robot first to see whether it was going to work. I was really impressed when the students persisted with the task and tried different ideas. They learnt and adapted as they went along,’ She said.

The Year 6 class also had their Year 1 buddies there to watch them. While the Year 6s was experimenting and trying to make their robots create a picture the buddies were watching in awe and asking questions.

Overall, it was a fun practical and all the Year 6s loved it. We enjoyed seeing our buddies and teaching them new skills, but we also enjoyed experimenting more with circuits and creating a robot that could draw.

Changes to the Non-Academic Entry Requirements for Teaching / Bachelor of Education

From August 2018, QTAC will discontinue their current Non-Academic Requirements for Teaching Entrance (NARTE) personal statement process and introduce an online tool to measure a student’s suitability for entering into the teaching profession.

The online tool will use several measurable exercises to replace the function of the two, 500-word NARTE statements, removing the focus on writing and placing it upon suitability to the profession.

The first exercise directly elicits the student's motivation to teach, with the second exercise measuring the student's commitment to benefiting young people and understanding the traits of a successful teacher.

When applying through QTAC, all students listing teacher education programs as a preference will receive correspondence with instructions directing them to the online tool. Students are required to complete the online tool by Friday 14 December in order to be considered in the January offer round.

Further details can be found here: https://www.qtac.edu.au/courses---institutions/teacher-entry
