Thank You For Supporting The Red Shield Appeal

Over the past month, the Pacific community has been involved in raising and collecting funds for the Salvation Army and donating non-perishable items. The community’s generosity was clearly evident in the number of items that have been donated and the willingness of 180 Middle and Senior College students to volunteer their time to collect as part of the Red Shield Door Knock Appeal last Sunday. The students collected over $5900 and raised over $2000 through the casual day here at College. Throughout this week we have received emails from the broader community complimenting our students on their presentation and courtesy as they undertook the door knock. As the Salvation Army representatives accepted these funds and filled their truck with donated items, they expressed deep appreciation for the contribution made by College families, staff and students. We thank students, parents and staff for their generosity and Mrs Leanne Bevis and the pastoral leaders for the leadership of this important community activity.

Small acts of generosity can bring a great deal of light into the lives of others and also brings light into our own hearts. It helps bring perspective and grow a grateful heart for what we have. Remembering to see the glass half full gives us a better way of seeing each moment and each other. God is generous in His love for us and encourages us to do the same. It is heartening to be part of a community that responds to this call so strongly.

Principal's Log

The talent and heart of our students has shone brightly this week in so many different ways. On Friday and Saturday, we were thoroughly entertained by an outstanding production of Oklahoma. Talented direction, set design, costumes, makeup, orchestral music and performances all worked powerfully together to take us on journey into the Oklahoma of old and have us reflecting on human relationships. The depth of talent throughout the cast was clearly evident. During the production experience, strong bonds were formed and younger students enjoyed the opportunity to learn alongside and from senior students. We congratulate Mrs Janine Delaney, and her team of Mrs Ceilidh King, Miss Alisha Janssen, Mr Alex O’Connor and Mrs Tracey Hickey, our Music staff, the orchestra and the cast and crew on an outstanding performance and the continuation of a culture of excellence in performance and connection.

Congratulations also goes to our 9-12 years Athletics team who performed strongly at the recent Independent District Athletics Carnival. Students showed great sportsmanship and spirit with many strong performances across the team. We celebrate with the team their achievement of fourth place overall and their winning of the Percentage Shield. Congratulations and thank you to Mr Darren Hooper and his team who have provided increased opportunity for athletics training this year. 

Students have also been extremely successful in the da Vinci Decathlon this week, which involves students from schools across Queensland. Students engage in a series of 10 academic challenges over a day. We congratulate our Year 9 team who placed third in the General Knowledge event and our Year 6 team who placed second in the Science event and third in both the Engineering and Code Breaking events. Our Year 7 and 8 teams continue to compete today and we wish them all the best. Thank you to Mrs Jo Belchamber, Mrs Christine Doyle, Mrs Linda Sydes, Mr Andrew Block and Mrs Melissa Ousley for their leadership and support of our teams.

We say a prayer of thanks for the blessings God has given this community through its people.

Mindsight

Sometimes when we are in the middle of something tough, or an experience that requires persistence, we can find it hard to appreciate the positives of what we are going through. School life is a classic example of this. In the middle of our school journey, if someone were to ask us what we appreciate about school, we would probably answer quite differently than if we were asked years later after we had finished school.

Whether it is our journey through school, our workplaces, or another experience in life, to be in a positive space of truly appreciating something, we often need distance and hindsight — reflecting with wisdom after the event is easier than finding perspective during it. That sense of perspective, of retraining our minds to think differently when we are in the thick of something, is difficult. I like to think of this mental switch as ‘mindsight’. Rather than hindsight, it takes mindsight when you are in the middle of something to value it and see it in a different way. To take the example of school or work, instead of catastrophising over exams, assessments, workloads, or what other colleagues or peers think of us or say about us online, in our mind’s eye how can we reframe our negative thoughts? How can we rethink what’s happening in our brains so as to focus on what is excellent?

In Philippians chapter four, Paul writes, always think about what is true. Think about what is noble, right and pure. Think about what is lovely and worthy of respect. If anything is excellent or worthy of praise, think about those kinds of things.

Is Paul saying here; be positive, think positive thoughts? Will that change the focus of our minds?

Sometimes the more we try to have positive thoughts, the worse it can get, especially when we are stressed. Someone telling us to be positive and think positive thoughts, can have the opposite effect on us. Paul does not mean this here; rather, he is saying, yes, be aware of what our minds are thinking, but also focus our minds on what is worth time and energy, what is beautiful and true and builds people up. This is what can bring peace to our thoughts.

God’s peace is beyond human understanding. God’s peace guards our hearts and minds and keeps us safe in Christ Jesus. This is the promise of God for us, the peace of Jesus, which is able to calm the most troubled person and mind.

Relay for Life

For the past six years now, the Year 12 cohort has come together to participate in the annual Relay for Life challenge, to raise funds for cancer research. This year was no different. It was great to see the cohort come together to support this cause in an event that was coordinated by the students’ own initiative. We congratulate all who were a part of this event and celebrate with Sam Henderson, who was awarded the ‘spirit’ award on the night for his outstanding enthusiasm and dedication to the cause. Sam was recognised by the organisers for his outstanding contribution to the event in the lead-up to and throughout the night. A superb effort, for a great cause. We look forward to seeing future year levels continuing the tradition in their own ways.

Oklahoma

It was a privilege to see the hours of hard work and dedication come to fruition over the weekend, first hand, at the College’s production of Oklahoma. The cast and crew should be commended on their efforts and professional approach to this production. To juggle the demands of a production as well as an academic workload is a remarkable feat. We wish you all the very best for your upcoming exams and pray that you have a smooth end to the term as it approaches quickly.

Year 12 and Year 2 Connections

This week, the Year 12 cohort spent their Tuesday lunchtime connecting with their Year 2 buddies in a shared lunch activity. Seeing the excitement on the faces of the Year 2 students shows what strong connections have been formed already this year. Thank you to Year 2 teachers Mrs Leonie Prout, Mrs Tanya Graves and Mrs Jodie Connors for their support and help with this event. Well done to the Year 12 students for the way they have interacted with their buddies and the enthusiasm they bring. We look forward to the next ‘picnic’ in Term 3.
 

Graduating Class of 2020, Year 12 Formal Update

With the change in the senior curriculum comes a change in a lot of routines for the College. One area that has been up for review in light of these changes, has been the date of the Year 12 Formal. After discussions with parents, students, staff and administration, we are pleased to announce that next year’s formal date will remain the same as previous years (at the end of the Year 12 school year). As all graduating students will need to attend school in their final week (after external exams have been completed), it is fitting to end their educational journey at Pacific with their formal. We thank parents, students and staff for their input regarding this matter.

Red Shield Door Knock Appeal

It was wonderful to see so many students, parents and staff come together last weekend, with more than 180 people volunteering a small part of their Sunday to put in a huge effort to support the Salvation Army’s work. The Door Knock Appeal managed to raise a huge amount of money to help those less fortunate and in need, and the effort was very much appreciated by Auxiliary Lieutenant’s Karen and Tim from the Salvation Army. Thank you to Mrs Leanne Bevis for her work in coordinating this event and to our community for their support.

Prep – Year 2 Cross Country

A letter providing details of this event was sent home this week. All parents are warmly invited to come along and support their children’s participation.

Developing Emotional Resilience in Children

Negative habits of mind greatly fuel emotional discomfort. These negative habits of mind include self-downing, the need to be perfect, the need for approval, the ‘I can’t do it’ or ‘I can’t be bothered’ mindsets and being intolerant of others. This week, I would like to continue sharing some strategies from the You Can Do It Program, which may help eliminate or balance these negative mindsets.

The need for approval is another negative habit of mind which can be detrimental to a child developing resilience.

To Eliminate ‘Needing Approval’

In order to help a child who is overly concerned with what others think about them, you should find an opportunity to explain that while it is nice to be liked and approved of, you do not need the approval of teachers or friends all the time. The following should be communicated:

“There are very few things we actually need in life and these include food, shelter and clothing. It may feel like we cannot stand it when someone disapproves of something we did or that it is the worst thing in the world to be teased or criticised. However, it is important to know that while it is not pleasant, it is something that you can put up with and survive.”

You should emphasise to your child that while it is preferable to try to be accepted and approved of, it is equally important to be ‘independent’ and to try new things even if others think you are silly. Try to eliminate your child’s dependency on seeking your assistance with schoolwork and their fear of being criticised for not having done it well enough.

Suggestions to eliminate your child’s needs for approval include:

  • Encourage your child to complete his/her schoolwork independently. If your child has a question, you should use the Praise, Prompt and Leave procedure (e.g. say something positive about what you child knows or has done, provide a brief prompt about the next step and then walk away).
  • Recognise your child when they complete work independently.
  • Teach your child not to judge or evaluate his/her work until after a certain period of time.
  • Don’t give your child too much attention when he/she expresses negative feelings about work.
  • Encourage your child to participate in social activities, rather than avoid them.
  • Acknowledge your child when he/she has ‘survived’ being in social situations he/she experienced as stressful. Say: “See, you are strong enough to put up with unpleasantness”.

Alpacas with Maracas

For the past 19 years the Australian Library and Information Services (ALIA) has held its National Simultaneous Storytime event. Every year a picture book, written and illustrated by an Australian, is read (usually) simultaneously the country. Our event took place on Monday this week at the Junior College Assembly and in our Early Learning Centre. Matt Cosgrove’s highly entertaining book ‘Alpacas with Maracas’ was a colourful and lively choice for this year’s read-aloud and our two ‘alpacas’, Mrs Peta Griffin and Mrs Lily Smith, were a huge hit. We thank them both for their willingness and creativity to ensure we were able to once again promote the joy of reading to our students and staff.

Last week, Year 3 students participated in a food tasting event, sampling some delicious and healthy Japanese food. As part of their unit on studying Japanese sports and healthy foods, students ate edamame, miso soup and green tea.

This is the Salvation Army’s signature fundraising drive which helps fund their vast network of social and community services.

T is for TIGERS! Our U7’s had loads of fun on Saturday. It was great to see a fabulous support crew on board as well!

National Volunteer Week

National Volunteer Week gave us a special opportunity to thank our coaches, managers and volunteers with a small gift. Every time our volunteers help out, we put their name into the draw to win a $50 Rebel Sport gift card. This week, congratulations goes to Frances from the U8 Pacific Dolphins, who won the draw.

Baby Bundles

As part of the St Mark’s Lutheran Church Caloundra congregation’s outreach to the wider community, we prepare Baby Bundles to give to struggling families. These bundles are passed on to Community Health Caloundra for distribution. Over the past 14 years we have assembled hundreds of bundles to show God’s love to people in need.

In past years, families from Pacific Lutheran College have been generous in donating items, used and new, for the bundles. We are appealing to families again to help us with donations that assist in this ministry.

Each bundle contains clothing for newborns up to about size 2 and items such as bunny rugs, sheets, baby shoes and soft toys, depending on availability. The bundles also include some consumable items such as baby wipes, baby cream, powder, disposable nappies and hair brushes.

If anyone has any of these items in good condition and would like to donate them, it would be greatly appreciated. Even if you could perhaps purchase one or two items of consumables or clothing when you do your shop, this would be greatly appreciated. Just one or two items from each College family would make a great difference. These bundles go to very needy families and are much appreciated.

If you would like to give to this worthy cause or know more about it, please contact our Baby Bundle Coordinator, Robyn Kruger, by phone on 5493 6968. Thank you in advance for your support.
