Compass No. 532 May 2019

From the Principal

Being Just Is Being More Than Fair

Young people have a strong radar for ‘what is fair’. Learning to be just involves being able to discern what is good for people in a myriad of contexts. It requires careful thought and weighing up. Compassion and empathy are keys to living justly, as we place the good of others at the centre of our thinking. It requires the ability to turn things around, to look from different perspectives and to consider the greater good. As we act justly, the dignity of people is always preserved. 

In response to God’s love and grace, where nothing we do puts us outside of His love, we are encouraged to act in grace and love towards others. Through acting justly, we hope that people grow and relationships are enhanced.

Principal's Log

It has been great to see the community’s response to the Red Shield Appeal so far. Through these small gifts we can make a difference to many people in our local community. The Pacific community plays a very key role in enabling the Salvation Army to provide support to families and individuals in need. Thank you for your support so far.

Well done to our primary and secondary Robotics teams who performed well at the RoboCoast Sumo Competition at Mountain Creek this week. There were more than 130 teams competing on the day from more than 25 schools. Three of our secondary teams reached the finals and we congratulate the team of Julian Schirripa (Year 7) and Liam Brown (Year 7) who came second to senior students from Chancellor State College. Well done to all students and thank you to Mrs Janine Stone, Mr Steven Healy and Mr Damian Davis for their leadership of our primary and secondary Robotics teams.

Thank you to parents, students and staff who took the opportunity to enhance student learning through engagement in the Senior College Conferences this week. These conferences are an important part of the learning process for young people and we look forward to the Middle College Conferences next week. We thank Mrs Rae Hall and Ms Sue Arahill for their coordination.

Our Year 3 to 6 students enjoyed the opportunity to compete in their Athletics Carnival on Wednesday. All reports were that the students participated with great spirit and sportsmanship. We thank Mrs Allyson Sarvari and the Friends of Pacific for providing the BBQ and Mr Darren Hooper and Mrs Natalie Campbell for their overall organisation of the carnival.

The winter uniform starts next Monday. Further details of the dress requirements are included directly following my article.

We wish all of our mothers a Happy Mother’s Day on Sunday. Our mums play a special role in our families and in the life of the College. We give thanks for all you do for this community and hope that you all have a very special day on Sunday. 

We say a prayer of thanks for our Mums and wish them God’s richest blessing.

Dr Bronwyn Dolling, Principal

Important Notices

Winter Uniform Commencing Monday 13th May

The winter uniform will commence on Monday 13th May. As a reminder, the winter uniform consists of:

Middle College

  • Males – Summer uniform with College tie and hat.
  • Females – No change to summer uniform.

Senior College

  • Males – Long pants with navy short socks, College shirt, tie, blazer and hat.

  • Female students may wear stockings at any time of the year with their formal uniform. When wearing stockings, no socks are to be worn.
  • Female dresses should always be approximately knee length. Families are asked to maintain a check on this as girls grow rather than waiting for reminders to be sent from the College.

All uniform items are available from the College’s Uniform Shop or online at: https://www.flexischools.com.au/.

Child Protection Policy

Pacific recognises that protecting students from harm and the risk of harm is fundamental to maximising their personal and academic potential. For this reason, the welfare and best interests of the children within our College will always be a primary consideration.

We expect our students to show respect to our staff and volunteers and to comply with safe practices. We expect all employees to ensure that their behaviour and relationships with students reflects proper professional standards of care and are not unlawful. The College will respond diligently to a report of suspected or actual harm, or risk of harm to a student resulting from either within the College or from outside of the College.

What does the College mean by harm?

Recent Queensland legislation defines harm as:

  • Any detrimental effect of a significant nature on the child’s physical, psychological or emotional wellbeing. It is immaterial how the harm is caused. Harm can be caused by:
    • Physical, psychological or emotional abuse or neglect;
    • Sexual abuse or exploitation; or
    • Domestic or family violence.

How does the College protect students from harm?

The College has a comprehensive Child Protection and Anti Sexual Abuse Policy, which outlines the actions to be taken if a member of staff or a parent of the College becomes aware or reasonably suspects that harm has been done to a student by other staff, people outside the College or by other students.

What should you do if you become aware or reasonably suspect that harm has been caused to a student of the College by a member of staff, someone outside of the College or by other students?

You should report your concerns to the Principal or member of the Administration and Learning Executive or to any other member of College staff.

What will happen next?

If you report your concerns to a member of staff other than the Principal, the member of staff will report it to the Principal immediately. If the subject of the complaint is the Principal then the member of staff will report to the Chairperson of the College Council.

Child Protection Policy and Procedures

Every student has the right to feel safe and free from harm while at Pacific Lutheran College. We expect students to respect their teachers and other students and we expect that they will receive the same respect in return. Students should never allow themselves to feel unsafe without reporting it to someone they trust.

Who should a student tell if they do not feeling safe at school or at home?

Any member of staff, including the Pastor. If a student does not feel comfortable talking to a member of staff, they may like to write him or her a letter. If a student would prefer to talk to somebody outside of the College on a confidential basis, they can also call Kids Help Line which is a free call – 1800 551 800.

What will happen if a student reports what is happening to a member of staff?

If the concern is worrying the student but not causing them immediate harm, then the member of staff will discuss ways to solve their problem. If the concern is serious and the member of staff believes that the student is being harmed or is in danger of being harmed, he or she will report it to the Principal.

What if the student does not want the member of staff to tell the Principal?

The member of staff will aim to keep the student’s concerns confidential as much as possible. However, if the member of staff is aware or reasonably suspects that harm has been caused to a student of the College, the law states that the matter must be reported to the Principal and it may have to be reported to the Police. If the staff member has no choice about reporting what the student has told them, he or she will explain exactly what will happen next.

The most important thing is that the student feels safe and free from harm. Students must tell someone if they are being harmed or afraid that they will be harmed.

Pacific has a legal and moral responsibility to ensure that students, staff and members of the College community are not subjected to behaviours, practices or processes that may constitute harassment, discrimination, vilification, or victimisation and is therefore committed to developing an environment which promotes respect for a person’s integrity, equitable treatment and natural justice.

Taking and publishing photos, and recordings of school-based activities

Recording of school-based activities should only be for personal use and should not be published in a public manner without the permission of the College. This would include social networking sites such as Facebook or You Tube. Publishing images without permission of those in the image contravenes the College’s privacy policy. Copyright permissions are also infringed upon if music from public performances is broadcasted or duplicated.

From the College Pastor

Justice

A Bible verse that we will hear in the College community this week and next is this one from Micah 6:8, “What does the Lord require of you; to act justly, love mercy and walk humbly with our God”. Justice, or to act justly is a value of our College, Lutheran education and of the Christian faith. But what does it mean to act justly? Is it to take a stand on certain social issues? Is it getting hot under the collar when we listen to some of the policies and electioneering of our political parties at the moment? Is it protesting for more action by governments on climate change and its effects on the environment? Is it thinking again how we react to the homeless person we come across in the street or park? Is it rethinking how we treat people who are different from us?

To act justly means to have a genuine concern for the rights and wellbeing of everyone. It means acknowledging that all people are created in the image of God and are of equal worth, value, dignity and respect. It means appreciating the fragility of life on planet earth and working towards a sustainable world for all. It means understanding and responding to the reasons for suffering and unjust conditions around the world. It requires integrity between beliefs, words and actions and at times it may mean taking a stand and acting with courage. To act justly means to love mercy and walk humbly with God.

Justice and righteousness ultimately come from God. He is just towards us where humans are unjust toward each other. Through Jesus’ relationship with the poor, the sick, the outcasts, the sinners we are inspired to cross social boundaries and speak up and act for those in need. Jesus acted with justice, mercy and humility. He gives us His Holy Spirit so that we can also practice and live out justice in our relationships and in our world. 

Pastor Tim Jarick, College Pastor 

From the Director of Students

God Bless the Salvo's

I am not sure William and Catherine Booth, founders of the Salvation Army in late 19th century London, would have thought that in 2019 nearly 900 representatives of Brisbane’s business sector would be launching this year’s Red Shield Appeal. Moreover, I suggest that they could not have imagined the $100,000 donation that the Queensland Government gifted the Salvation Army to kickstart the Red Shield Appeal. However, it is perhaps Ben Harrison whom the Booth’s may have had the most connection with and admiration for, had they been present. You see Ben Harrison is not a renowned speaker, nor a famous member of the business community. He is not a highly paid actor nor a major sporting superstar. He is neither a wealthy musician nor a highly published author. Ben Harrison is a former homeless person, who has had to deal with the demons of alcoholism, drug addiction and poor mental health. Indeed, Ben had lost his job, family and through attempting suicide, nearly his life. According to Ben, he wouldn’t be here had it not been for the Salvation Army.

According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) during the 2016 census, a reported 116,427 people were classified as homeless (www.abs.gov.au/ausstats/abs@.nsf/mf/2049.0). Worryingly, this is an increase from five years earlier. Australia has long been referred to as the lucky country, however, for many, it would appear not to be so. Thankfully the commitment to support the work of the Salvation Army has never been stronger at Pacific. There is an equal importance in highlighting to our young ones just how fortunate and lucky they are alongside the need to raise much needed funds and donations. Through positive action our students and wider community are demonstrating what it means to act with a keen sense of social justice and be advocates for others.

We desire that a Lutheran education develops a moral compass within students that allows them to navigate a path so that they may act appropriately to social justice issues. St Mary MacKillop once said, “Never see a need without doing something about it”. As a Pacific community we have the opportunity to do something about the plight of those less fortunate to offer them a sense of hope. Families are invited to donate non-perishable food and personal items to the College before the 24th May as well as take part in the Red Shield Door Knock Appeal that will take place on Sunday 26th May. Details of both these initiatives were emailed home to families last week. God Bless the Salvo’s.

Walk Safely to School Day

On Friday 17th May, Sunshine Coast Council is encouraging students to walk, scoot or skate to school for Walk Safely to School Day (WSTSD). WSTSD promotes road safety, health, public transport and the environment. By walking to school, students get some exercise and quality time with friends, as well as reduce traffic congestion and pollution around the College.

Those who live too far away to walk from home are invited to meet at Oakdale Park, in Oakdale Circuit, Currimundi and join us for a short 850m walk to the College. Staff will be there to meet students and families at 8.00am, for an 8.05am departure. To ensure the safety of our students, we ask that children are accompanied by a parent / carer where possible. 

Students participating in the day can register online to enter the draw for great prizes. To register, visit: http://events.r20.constantcontact.com.

Mothers Day

Thank you to the Friends of Pacific team and Year 4 parents who ran the Mother’s Day stalls this week. The stalls were a great success and featured handcrafted gifts. We hope that all mothers have an enjoyable Mother’s Day this weekend.

Healthy Eating, Forts and Earth

In OSHC, children have been investigating healthy eating. We were interested to find out just how healthy all those drinks we consume actually are. Children learnt to check the back of drink containers to see how much sugar is in each and then measured out sugar to give them a visual aid to refer to. We were amazed at how much sugar is in each drink, especially fruit juice poppers. Children have also been working together each afternoon to build forts and cubby houses out of boxes. The creations have been endless. Some of our Year 1 children wondered, “What is in the centre of the Earth?” They dug a hole in the sand pit to see if they could find the centre of the earth and also researched on the iPad to see if they could find the answer. If you’re also wondering what is in the centre of the earth, drop into OSHC and find out.

RoboCoast Sumo Competition

On Tuesday 7th May, Pacific participated in the RoboCoast Sumo Competition in Mountain Creek. The event was the largest Sumo competition to be held in Australia with more than 130 teams competing on the day. The teams represented more than 25 schools between Cooran and Mount Gravatt. Pacific entered four primary teams and five secondary teams.

In a sumo competition, two robots are set 10 centimetres apart on a round board. Once the initial program is uploaded to the robot, the robot runs autonomously. After a countdown, the robots are started and try to push one another out of the ring and off the board. The losing robot is the robot pushed off the board completely.

After seven long rounds, three of the secondary teams moved into the finals for the day. After some serious competition our team ‘Liam’ comprising of Julian and Liam (Year 7) came second. The winning team of seniors from Chancellor State College had a great robot design.

It was amazing to watch how well the students cooperated and worked as a team to solve problems. Well done to all students who competed on the day and congratulations to team ‘Liam’ on their second place!

2019 Queensland Christian Soccer Association State Titles

Over the Labour Day long-weekend, seven Pacific FC players took to the fields in Redbank Plains to represent the Sunshine Coast Churches Soccer Association (SCCSA) at the pinnacle soccer tournament for the year, the QCSA State Titles. 

 We congratulate the following Pacific FC representative players on their endeavours to successfully compete in their age divisions, which also ensured SCCSA to proudly retain the overall State Championship title.

  • U11 Joseph Harrys
  • U12 Angus Friend
  • U12 Patrick Dale
  • U13 Luke Harrys
  • U13 Zaida Williams
  • U14 Alexander Lee
  • U16 Astrid Williams

Playing for U12 South, Angus and Patrick’s team played five games in total, winning four and drawing one. 

Results over the weekend were:

  • SC South 2-2 SC North
  • SC South 7-0 West Leopards 
  • SC South 9-0 South East Zone
  • SC South 4-3 West Jaguars

The team was crowned U12 Champions for 2019. Congratulations Angus and Patrick!

U13 Sunshine Coast Female Rep

Zaida played right wing for the U13 Sunshine Coast Female Representative team who were the first ever U13 all-female team at the State Titles. The Wolves played seven games against various male representative teams over two days. The Sunshine Coast female U13 team made such an impressive debut they will train under the Queensland State Development Squad, in preparation for the 2020 State Titles. Congratulations Zaida – we look forward to following the journey!

U14 Sunshine Coast North Rep

After more than six months of steady preparation in goals, Alex was disappointed to have to sit on the bench for most of the tournament due to injury. The good news is that SCN ended up placing second on the ladder, taking the Championship Plate with a 19-1 goal difference. Two players were selected for the Queensland State Squad and will head to Redcliff in October.

U16 Sunshine Coast Female Rep

Astrid played goal keeper for U16 Sunshine Coast Female Representative team. The Hornets played four games over the two days and took overall second place. Four players were selected from the Sunshine Coast to represent the State in October – well done!

PLC Netball Club

The weekend is the first of three visits by CDNA to Pacific this year. These events provide Pacific with an opportunity to showcase the College, its facilities and most importantly, our community spirit.

There were no games over the Labour Day long weekend, so this week also provides an opportunity to showcase our Club Co-Captains Amie Hague (Year 9) and Ella Ousley (Year 10). Both girls were selected via a formal application process that evaluated their contributions to the Club and their leadership credentials. At the end of this process the Committee was unable to separate the applications and it was decided that the Club would have Co-Captains for 2019.

Amie captained and was awarded the spirit award for the PLC Arabians last year, has been umpiring since 2017 and is participating in the Duke of Edinburgh program. Ella has been umpiring since 2017, has coached our U7 team for the last two years and plays in our ladies’ team, the PLC Appaloosas. 

The role of the Club Captain is to foster community spirit within the U7 to U12 teams by being a positive role model for the younger girls. The position also entitles the girls to be members of the PLC Netball Club Committee. In addition to their formal roles, the girls attend junior team training sessions, join the teams during their warm-up sessions before their Saturday games and mentor our junior players. These are roles and responsibilities seldom entrusted to girls of their age in the modern world and it is with pride that we watch them rise to the challenge.
