Standing Up With and For Human Dignity and Respect

Bullying, No Way! Take Action Every Day

Three core values of the Pacific community are care, dignity and respect. To stand up for these values in social settings, both physical and online, takes courage and compassion. To stand with is a powerful demonstration of empathy and often requires even greater courage. It is important to make decisions about what we stand for rather than drift with a group. Having these personal core values of caring for others and respecting and preserving everyone’s personal dignity, creates a safe and empowering culture for everyone to live and grow within. This Friday we focus on the proactive things each of us can do as individuals as we participate in the National Day of Action Against Bullying and Violence. The theme for this year of ‘Bullying, No Way! Take Action Every Day’, encourages us all to take a strong, calm, personal stand to care for others and always act to preserve personal dignity and safety.

Principal's Log

Staff, students, parents and friends of the College enjoyed the high-quality service and food provided by our Hospitality students and the entertaining performances of our Music students as they connected at our International Women’s Day Breakfast last Friday. As people connected, we celebrated the abundance we have in our lives and the importance of encouraging our young men and women to be fearless, unlimited and unlimiting as they explore and grow their strengths so that they can make a difference for others. We thank Mr Mark Hauser and Mrs Leanne Bevis for their organisation, Mrs Colleen Beattie and her Hospitality team, Mr Steven Lake and his Music team, our student leaders and our community for your support in making this such a successful event.

The Sunshine Coast Schools Debating Competition has commenced for 2019 and Pacific has entered a team of Year 8 students. The team performed well, winning their first debate last night. Well done to our team of Maggie Princehorn, Amedy Buchanan, Lucy Dimond, Taylor Mikolic, Elyse McFadyen and Isha Wallis and thank you to Mr Alex O’Connor for his coaching of these students. We are looking forward to a strong season of growth.

Our Year 5 Robotics team were excited to be part of the RoboCoast Immersion Day last Friday. These students are looking forward to sharing their learnings with the Junior Robotics Club and representing the College in a variety of events and competitions. We thank Mr Damian Davis and Mr Steven Healy for their support of these students and coordination of the Junior Robotics Club.

Well done to our primary students who enjoyed the opportunity to represent the College at the Inter-Lutheran Swimming Carnival this week. The team can be proud of the spirit they showed and their performances in the pool, which saw them achieve 2nd place overall. We thank Mr Darren Hooper, Mr Chris Mundey and Mrs Natalie Campbell for their support of our junior swimmers this year and also Mr Damian Davis who attended the carnival.

May God give us each the courage to take a stand to preserve the dignity, worth and safety of all people.

Resistance Skills

A fitting thread for this season of Lent is resistance skills. When we refer to resistance skills, we mean that children and young people learn and start developing the ability to resist negative peer pressure and dangerous situations. Jesus learnt some resistance skills when the devil tempted Him in the wilderness. He was led by the Holy Spirit into the wilderness, where He fasted for forty days and was tempted three times to succumb to the devil’s wishes. With each temptation, Jesus was able to resist by going back to the words of the Bible. That was His toolkit of resistance.

What toolkit of resistance are we teaching young people today? Usually, children and young people develop their resistance skills over time. Often it begins with affirmation. When a young person speaks their mind or expresses personal opinions, and subsequently receives affirmation rather than rebuke, they usually grow in confidence and especially in the ability to resist put-downs and other pressures. In a world of expectations and demands, a young person needs to learn ‘commonly proven’ resistance skills, such as walking away from the person, using humour, calmly saying no, sticking up for yourself, calling someone nearby to help, confronting the person or telling a caring adult. These skills can be refined over time, so that young people are equipped to deal with instances of extreme peer pressure later in life. Refining resistance skills also helps young people to move forward when they are confronted with failure. Having some of these skills in the toolkit, builds resilience. Resilience is that ability to bounce back when we are stretched and under pressure. How are your resistance skills growing as you bounce back from the pressures and challenges of the pointy end of the term?

United We Stand

Human beings are naturally social creatures. Tribe, village, community, society, band and club, are just some of the words that conjure images of people interacting together in a variety of ways. Likewise, a school may be viewed as a microcosm of the society in which we live. Increasingly, the way we connect with one another has extended beyond a simple face-to-face interaction. Nevertheless, it is this simple act of striking up a conversation with another that has tremendous impact on our wellbeing and when we multiply these interactions over and over, the ripple effect they have is immeasurable. Indeed, research suggests that forming positive relationships is the single most important factor to an individual’s wellbeing. Moreover, positive emotions as a by-product of positive relationships, propagates further social connections. Certainly, this is demonstrated with regularity at Pacific both in and out of the classroom. We must be mindful though to avoid the trap of trying to be someone we are not, simply to gain acceptance. Ultimately this type of relationship does not stand the test of time. E.B. White’s Charlotte’s Web tells a tale of the bond between Wilbur, a pig and Charlotte, a barn spider. Charlotte perfectly encapsulates the positivity of true friendship when she says to Wilbur, “You have been my friend. That in itself is a tremendous thing”.

Unfortunately, though, there are occasions when relationships become fractured and there is a need to acknowledge fault in our words or actions towards one another. This requires remorse, courage and forgiveness. We must remind ourselves though that we all share a common bond as members of the Pacific community and it is our positive relationships that increase school connectedness. It is because of this bond that we unite as one this Friday 15th March to take a stand against bullying and violence, ensuring that Pacific remains a place of peace in every sense of the word.

Sun Safety

Over the past two weeks at assembly, we have been revisiting our obligations as members of the College community regarding uniform expectations. Students are expected to wear their hats when travelling to and from the College. As well as having pride in our appearance, it is part of the College’s sun safe policy. We thank you for your support in this matter.

Australia has the dubious title of being the sun cancer capital of the world. Extensive research has shown that being sunburnt as a child, even as little as two times a year, triples the chance of developing skin cancer as an adult. As part as our sun safe policy, every classroom in the Junior College has sunscreen and students are encouraged to apply it before breaks and sport lessons.

 As Sid the Seagull tells us, we need to:

  • Slip on a t-shirt;
  • Slop on sunscreen;
  • Slap on a hat;
  • Seek shade; and
  • Slide on sun protection.
 
RoboCoast

On Tuesday, a group of Year 5 students attended their first RoboCoast Immersion Day for EV3’s. These students will form the core of our Junior Robotics Club and undertook an extensive application process to attend RoboCoast. The immersion day was designed to facilitate and build a culture of robotics, coding and engineering in young people. It was an invaluable opportunity for students to learn more about Lego Mindstorm EV3’s and hone their skills with a view to competing in RoboCoast competitions later this year. The application and enthusiasm of students was infectious and we are excited to see the direction our club takes in the future.

National Ride2School Day

Next Friday 22nd March is National Ride2School Day. The day promotes alternative travel arrangements, such as walking, riding and skating. We encourage our students to use active travel to get to and from school because:

  • Children arrive at school feeling more alert and ready to learn;
  • Active travel helps students to achieve their recommended 60 minutes of daily physical activity; and
  • It means fewer cars on our local streets, improving road safety around the College.

Sunshine Coast Council is offering great prizes this Ride2School Day including bike shop vouchers valued at $500, $200 and $100. To go in the draw, register your children for Ride2School Day online before 5.00pm on Friday 22nd March. Click here to register.

National Day of Action against Bullying and Violence

This Friday 15th March is the National Day of Action Against Bullying and Violence. The theme for this year is ‘Bullying, No way! Take an action every day!’. On this day, the College will also celebrate Pacific As A Peace Place. This day provides an opportunity to reflect on the changes we can make in our daily lives to create safer communities for everyone.

Mr Damian Davis, Head of Staff and Students P-5

Food for Thought

Kiddle - Kids Safe Search

Kiddle is a visual search engine for children: https://www.kiddle.co/. When your children use the internet to search for images for projects or school work, please encourage them to use Kiddle instead of Google. Kiddle is a child-specific search engine supported by Google that prevents the appearance of things that are not suitable for them.

SchoolTV

This month’s topic on SchoolTV is grief and loss: https://pacificlutheran.qld.schooltv.me/newsletter/grief-loss

Children and adults grieve differently due to their developmental stage. Young children can struggle to understand the permanency of loss and can sometimes express grief through tantrums or regressive behaviour. On the other hand, teens may not know how to express their grief and need space to process their loss. There is a range of information available on our SchoolTV site that will assist parents to help their children deal with grief and loss.

Lent Celebrations

How much fun did we have in the library last week? Acknowledging the start of Lent, we explored the celebrations of other cultures at this special time such as Carnival and Mardi Gras. We made traditional Mardi Gras masks, ate pancakes and enjoyed Mr Steven Lake’s lively reading of Steve Goes to Carnival.

This week we have a focus on Canberra’s special day, making origami corroboree frogs and hearing the story of The Monster Who Ate Canberra.

Our new jigsaw quiet spot is also proving to be a big hit with both little and big people! It won’t be long before this first puzzle is completed. We are loving the collaboration that’s occurring as puzzlers consider each piece and where it might fit.

PLC Netball Club

This Saturday marks a major milestone for the Club. For the first time in our history, a PLC Netball Club Division 1 team will take the court at the season opening Round Robin Competition.

Supporting our senior team are our other graded teams playing in Division 3, 5, and 7; together with a full suite of teams from U12 to U7. This makes the 2019 season our largest in terms of teams and players in the Club’s recorded history. The achievement of this milestone fulfils the Club’s commitment to become a sustainable netball club that caters for girls of all ages and all abilities.

This achievement recognises the efforts of every player, parent and official in attaining the security, sustainability and diversity of the Club, which only comes from offering playing options at all levels. It is on this foundation that we can continue to provide playing, leadership and professional development opportunities to all of our girls and take pride in their achievements.

Good luck to everyone on the weekend.
