Compass No. 549 September 2019

From the Principal

Pausing to Celebrate and Say Thank You

Pausing to celebrate and say thank you helps us to re-centre and appreciate all that God and the people in our lives have given us. The end of a day, end of a week, the end of a term are great times to pause and reflect on all of the good things that have happened in our lives and to be thankful for those things. Each period of time, provides us with tremendous opportunities for learning and growth. Paying attention to what is good and being grateful enhances our wellbeing and opens our eyes to possibility. It gives us the perspective and energy to grow through disappointments and to be proactive and solution focused.

God gives each one of us so many blessings every day. The parable of the healing of the 10 lepers where only one returns to give thanks is a powerful reminder for us to pause in our business and to be one who says thank you. 

Principal's Log

All families will receive a Compass Review magazine posted home this week, which includes a summary of the achievement of the 2015-2018 strategic plan, highlights of the 2019 school year and inspiring reflections from past students. As staff, students and parents, we have a great deal to celebrate and be thankful for. These achievements are only possible through the goodwill and commitment of staff, students and parents to come together and provide the best possible opportunities for people. Thank you to you all for the part you have played, large and small, in continuing to enhance and grow people within this community. This weekend marked the end of the netball and soccer seasons with both groups holding their celebrations on Sunday. Both our netball and soccer clubs rely on volunteers and the goodwill of our parents and students in many different areas. Well done to the Fillies for the way in which they played in their grand final and to all soccer and netball players for the growth and commitment they have demonstrated over the year. Thank you in particular to our committees led by Mr Trevor Colton and Mr Zane Russell for their very significant contribution in enabling so many of our young people to play sport and for parents to come together in community.

Our Year 12 leaders have established a new tradition of engaging in a ‘sleepout for the homeless’ to raise funds and donate blankets and sleeping bags to the Salvation Army. Well done to the 43 students who chose to sleep in the gym last Friday night and to Mr Mark Hauser, Mrs Tina Cox, Mr Ben Ryan, Mrs Leah Croke, Ms Angela Hill and Mrs Michiko Hauser for their support of students.

As another senior student initiative, next term we will stage our first ‘Viva La Arts – a night under the stars’. The evening has been organised by our Cultural Pacific Action Group to showcase student talent in the visual and performing arts. It promises to be a highly entertaining evening on Friday 25th October. As it coincides with Grandparent’s Day, it provides a great opportunity for you to come as an extended family and enjoy the tremendous talent of our students.

In the second week of the holidays, a group of students and staff will embark on the annual Melbourne Arts Tour. The cultural experience will include attending a variety of plays and musical performances as well as visiting various art galleries and installations across Melbourne city. We thank Mrs Helen Williams, Mr Steven Lake and Mrs Ceilidh King for their leadership of this year’s tour and wish them and the students a rich cultural learning experience.

We wish Mr Damien Evans all the best as he takes long service leave next term. Mr Brett Kersnovske will be the Acting Head of Mumba and Head of Sport for Term 4. We welcome Ms Kate Child who has most recently taught at Siena and Brisbane Girls Grammar. Ms Child will teach English, HASS and Physical Education to our Middle and Senior College students. We will also be welcoming back Mrs Marnie Whittaker from maternity leave. As such, we farewell and thank Mr Marshall Murphy for his great support of our Middle and Senior College students in the Industrial Design and Technology area over the last term.

Parents and students are encouraged to take note of the communication from College Council Chair Mrs Ruth Zerner regarding changes to the hair guidelines, which will be implemented from the start of Term 4.

We thank God for the people of this community and the many blessings He has given each one of us.

Dr Bronwyn Dolling, Principal

Important Notices

Revised Hair Guidelines

Earlier this year, in keeping with the College being a leader of contemporary approaches to education and the changing community expectations in regard to hair styles, the College Council has revised Pacific’s hair guidelines as shown below. The focus will be on ensuring that all of our students present neatly. The policy will take effect from the start of Term 4. We envisage that through this implementation phase, there will need to be clarification as the community develops a common understanding of this new standard which we expect will lead to a higher standard of presentation. 

Parents or students who have questions in regard to this are welcome to contact the Principal Dr Bronwyn Dolling, Director of Students Mr Ben Ryan, Head of Senior College Students Mr Mark Hauser or Head of Staff and Students P-5 Mr David Druery.

Hair Guidelines – All Students

As part of the Pacific Lutheran College uniform, student hair should be maintained to reflect care, dignity and respect for self, the College and the community. Hair must be neat, clean and tidy at all times. Hair longer than collar length, falls forward onto the face or is untidy must be tied back. 

Selected styles should facilitate appropriate wearing of College hats and should not draw attention to the individual student. All styles must comply with safety requirements of all College learning spaces. 

Colouring

Colour treatments should be subtle and be a single, naturally occurring hair colour.

Products

Hair styling products should be applied in a subtle manner and be colour-free or naturally coloured. Hair management products such as hair ties, scrunchies, combs, clips or pins should be yellow, teal, navy or white and purchased from the College Uniform Shop. Plain, navy or black elastic bands and plain or clear hair clips and combs are also acceptable. All management products should be subtle, preserve dignity and be in keeping with the uniform.

Students are to remain clean-shaven whilst enrolled at the College.

When styles or colours do not meet the guidelines, students and families will be required to address the issue as indicated by the College. Please note the following are examples that would not meet the College’s student hair guidelines.

  • Cuts / styles: mohawks, rat tails, undercuts, track or similar, haircuts shorter than a number 2 cut.
  • Colours: stark colours out of alignment with the students’ natural colouring. Hair products which are fluorescent, sparkly or used to excess.

Mrs Ruth Zerner, College Council Chair

From the Head of Senior College Students

End of Term

At the final assembly for the term, it was great to hear the Captains’ Address. In his reflection, College Vice-Captain Jackson Laverick highlighted the successes that we as a College have accomplished so far, both curricular and co-curricular. The list was staggering! In amongst the exams, assignments and general classroom learning, there were also sport carnivals, academic challenges, musical feats, artistic venture and drama performances. It is sometimes easy to get caught up in the busyness of school life, but it’s important to pause and reflect on how far we have come. In discussion with the Year 12 cohort this week, one theme that was common as they near the end of their schooling life, is how quickly the year has flown by (as cliché as it sounds). Jackson’s reflection serves as a great reminder to us all that, as we approach the final term of the year, we have achieved so much already in 2019. Term 3 was a busy one and I congratulate you all on your successes throughout. Over the holidays, take time to reflect on what you have accomplished and how you can continue to grow next term. I wish you all a very safe and blessed holiday break.

Sleepout for the Homeless

Last Friday, 43 Senior College students gave of their time to participate in Pacific’s first ever ‘sleepout for the homeless’ in the College gym. This was an initiative from the Year 12 cohort, driven primarily by the College Captains as one of their major events for senior students. It was great to witness the enthusiasm and generosity of students, with $280 raised along with seven boxes of blankets and pillows also donated to The Salvation Army, Caloundra for distribution to those who need these items most. It was a long night for those involved, however all students enjoyed coming together for this worthy cause. All those involved in the night took away a valuable lesson and I thank Mrs Tina Cox, Mr Ben Ryan, Mrs Leah Croke, Ms Angela Hill and Mrs Michiko Hauser for their time and efforts. Well done to all who participated.

Celebrating the Class of ‘09

On Saturday 19th October, we invite the Graduating Class of 2009 back to the College to celebrate their 10 year reunion. The celebration provides a wonderful opportunity to reconnect with past classmates, teachers and the school. For more information, please contact the College or visit: https://www.facebook.com/events/1121886804682552/. We look forward to celebrating this milestone with the Class of 2009.

Term 3

Thank you to all parents and families for their continued support and involvement in the many and varied aspects of schooling in the Prep – Year 5 area of the College this term. It is greatly valued and welcomed by students, staff and the entire College community. After such a long term, I wish all students and families a relaxing, enjoyable break. Term 4 commences on Tuesday 8th October.

Chess

Chess classes will re-commence next term on Tuesday afternoons. As previously advised, these classes are run by Chess Mates. If your child is interested in participating, please contact the P-5 Student Administration (during term time) to collect the relevant documentation.

Grandparents and Special Friends Day

The morning offers students the opportunity to show and involve their extended families in their daily experiences at school. Visitors will spend time in learning spaces before attending morning tea and enjoying a variety of musical performances.

Connecting College and Community

FOP September Meeting

We welcomed new and regular members to our meeting this week and were blessed to have one of our 2019 College Captains, Rebekah Pierce, provide an amazing insight into her time at Pacific, including how it has prepared her for life outside of the College. Rebekah’s journey with Pacific started in Year 8 and she hasn’t looked back. Her takeaway message was threefold; have faith – believe in yourself; develop a support network – lean on others around you, including teachers, friends and family; and take opportunities – be open-minded to growth in unexpected areas. We wish Rebekah well on her journey ahead. We also thank Head of Senior College Students Mr Mark Hauser for his encouragement and mentorship of our young people during this time.     

“It’s because of teacher’s faith in me that I’ve thought myself capable enough to pursue a career in medicine and really go for gold. I’m currently waiting to find out if I’ll be accepted and where I’ll be off to next year. The opportunities I’ve received here at Pacific have been life changing. From being nominated for awards like ADF’s Long Tan Youth Leadership to participating in events like Lions Youth of the Year, I have realised my own potential. Without these opportunities, I wouldn’t be aspiring for a career in medicine. My future dreams and hopes wouldn’t have been possible without the support and amazing letters of recommendations from staff.” – Rebekah Pierce

Trivia Night Wrap-Up

We are very pleased to announce the Blockbuster Trivia Night was a great financial success, bringing in a profit of $9 000. We thank all who were involved in the planning of the event and also those who attended and supported the night. We are already looking forward to the 2021 Battle of the Bands Trivia Night.

Volunteering Opportunities

Following on from our successful IRONMAN 70.3 volunteering stint, Pacific has been approached to help out at two upcoming sporting events. We are looking for parents and/or Middle and Senior College helpers for the All Schools Triathlon on Sunday 27th October and the Noosa Triathlon on Sunday 3rd November. The Noosa Triathlon Multi Sport Festival is five-day event, celebrating sports, healthy lifestyles, fitness and fun.

Volunteers receive a t-shirt and a cap and will generally be helping on drink stations. Pacific will receive a donation for every volunteer we provide, which will help us raise funds for the installation of more water coolers at the College. If you would like more information or can commit to helping out, please contact Allyson Sarvari on 0402 276 988 or email: fop@pacluth.qld.edu.au.

Learning Enrichment

Reading with Your Child

Reading is one of the most important areas you can support your child with. For early primary aged children, the opportunity to read aloud to a parent daily will go a long way in improving reading skills. In fact, the biggest gains can be made when families commit to daily reading. This does not have to be a long, drawn out process. Even five minutes a night is a great help. I often encourage children to “read to the 'staples' the first night, finish the story the second night and reread the text on the third night". Research continues to indicate that repeated reading of familiar texts builds fluency. Helping children to engage with the text by encouraging them to make connections and predictions will benefit comprehension. For example, 'what do you think the puppy will do next?’ It doesn't matter if the prediction is wrong, rather, it is about thinking what an appropriate response might be. Making comments like ‘that reminds me of when we went to visit grandma and saw the chickens’ will help children understand how good readers process information and make sense of what they read by connecting it to known experiences. Asking a quick question before turning the page will help with factual recall. If reading is a struggle, it is important to talk with your child's teacher. It is only natural that we avoid things that are difficult, so acknowledging this with your child can help. If you would like further information, please don't hesitate to contact your child's class teacher or myself.

Year 2 YACHTS

During Term 3, Year 2 YACHTS students were challenged to build a self-propelled boat using only the recycled materials provided for their STEM task. After exploring various boat designs, each team selected which boat type they would use. They were provided with scraps of timber, old water bottles, some rubber bands, old plastic ice cream lids and paddle pop sticks. Following the engineering process, students designed, planned, constructed, tested and modified their boats to make improvements. After many weeks of trialling and adjusting their designs, this week they proudly showed their boats to their peers and demonstrated how they worked. Some of the things learned along the way include: it sometimes takes many tries to get things to work the way you want them too; the shape of the boat matters; the propellers need to be made from strong materials; AND hot glue gun ‘glue’ doesn’t work very well when it gets too wet!

Secondary College

Senior Health Courses

Year 11 and 12 students studying Certificates II and III in Health Support Services also gain other nationally accredited qualifications in first aid, which are incorporated into their Health studies. Students complete HLTAID001 Provide Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation, HLTAID003 Provide First Aid, HLTAID004 Provide an emergency first aid response in an education and care setting and HLTAID005 Provide first aid in remote situations. These courses are delivered and accredited through Allens Training at Birtinya. Pacific’s partnership with Allens Training doesn’t end with training as we also have members of the Allens family enrolled at the College. We would like to extend our gratitude and thanks to Allens Training for their generous donation of resuscitation training manikins and other first aid supplies to bolster our Health course resources. Our senior students will rely on these resources to complete their certifications and were keen to test out their skills as soon as the new manikins arrived!

Viva La Arts!

Come along to ‘Viva La Arts – a night under the stars’ and help us celebrate the incredible talent and creativity of our students. The evening, organised and run by our Cultural PAG, will showcase Music, Dance, Drama, and Visual Art in an exciting interactive and rotational format in different locations around the art, music and drama rooms.

The evening will begin at 5.00pm on Friday 25th October (the evening of Grandparent’s Day) at the amphitheatre, with a surprise performance and a special guest who will officially ‘open’ the event. Following this, the audience will be able to roam from venue to venue and be entertained by soloists and groups in each of the performing arts forms. Also, take a walk through ‘Gallery Lane’, a pop-up art exhibition just outside the art block. There will be a food truck where you can purchase food and drink while you watch the performances. In total, more than 40 students are involved, either in organisation or in performing (or both) for this exciting new initiative! ‘Viva La Arts – a night under the stars’… We hope to see you there!

Primary Schools Cup - Netball

Last weekend, the Primary Schools Cup Netball Carnival was held in Maroochydore with 160 teams from all over Queensland competing. The courts at Fishermans Road were a sea of players, umpires, supporters, tents, food stalls and a big screen, which broadcast the Suncorp Super Netball final with the Sunshine Coast Lightning vs Sydney Swifts on Sunday afternoon.

The two day carnival provided an opportunity for players to experience competitive netball in a Championship Division and a Development Division. Pacific entered a team in each of these divisions.

  • PLC Navy – Championship Division: Amber Hetherington, Evie Sillar, Freya Mulholland, Grace Cawley, Holly King, Kahlia Taylor, Kirra Burdett-Cluer, Mia Locke and Zoe Woods.
  • PLC Teal – Development Division: Ana-Belle Mogg, Amelia Holmes, Cayley Slevin, Kayla Sanderson, Leila Osborne, Lucinda Whight, Maya Dean-Meredith, Mia Beilken, Mia Wilkie and Orly Sillar.

Both teams played very well and all players displayed great sportsmanship both on and off the court.

On Saturday, the grading rounds were held with both PLC Navy and PLC Teal qualifying for Division 3. On Sunday, PLC Navy played four games, winning three and drawing one. As a result, they qualified for the finals and finished runners up to Eaton Hills out of the 20 teams in their division. PLC Teal played 12 games over the weekend and finished fifth in their division.

Coaches, Mrs Michelle Dufty and Mrs Amanda Empson, were very proud of all students and their development and growth in the short time they have been training and playing together.

A very big thank you to Gabby Gorham and Tayla Gorham for umpiring and to all the parents for their support during the girls’ netball journey. We look forward to improving our results in 2020!

PLC Netball Club

Over the weekend, the 2019 season concluded with the grand finals and our Club presentation night. Two of our teams, the PLC Fillies and the PLC Walers, had finals appearances.

The PLC Fillies took on the Meridan Scorpions in the Division 7 grand final. It was a hard-fought game for the first half, with Meridan breaking away in the third quarter to win 29 to 19. The season set a high standard for the Fillies, who in the past have struggled with grading and found it difficult to win a game. To go through the whole season of 20 games and only lose four of them is a fantastic effort. Well done to their coach, Rhianna Higginson, for taking the girls to the next level.

The second team to take the court was our PLC Walers. The Walers are our umpiring team, with Tayla Gorham officiating in the Division 1 grand final. Division 1 is the ‘senior’ grade within the Association and naturally attracts the most senior umpires to officiate the grand final. Well done to Tayla on achieving another first for PLC Netball! 

To round out the season, the Club presentation night was held at Laserzone on Sunday. It was a great night and there were a number of achievements recognised:

  • Twelve girls received 5 Year Service Jackets in recognition of their commitment to the Club;
  • April Romagnoli received the Golden Whistle award as the Club’s most valuable umpire in recognition of achieving her ‘National C’ Umpiring Qualification and the development she has shown throughout the year;
  • Kate Cameron was awarded the Spirit Award for her attitude, dedication and commitment to the Club; and
  • Mel Ousley received the ‘Clubman of the Year’ for her efforts as Team Manager over a number of seasons.

Finally, I would like to thank all of the coaches, team managers, committee members and parents who have supported us throughout the season and made it a great success!

Mr Trevor Colton, PLC Netball Club President

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.
