Compass No. 559 FEBRUARY 2020

From the Principal

Starts With The Heart

Everything we do at Pacific starts with the heart. When we start with the heart there is a sense of joy and possibility. Our purpose evolves as we do things out of love for learning, love for people and love for our environment. When we act out of love, our world expands and hope flourishes. Having love for people means we respect the dignity of all and walk together with all people as fellow travellers. We smile at the world, are inclusive in our relationships and look to help and support the growth of others as opportunities arise. We lift people up and in doing so are lifted to a greater way of being. 

Jesus modelled this powerfully when the pharisees asked him the question of “what the greatest commandment was?” His response of love was surprising to the pharisees and a strong foundation for us to stand upon.

“Teacher, which is the great commandment in the Law?” And He said to him, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment. And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbour as yourself.”

Principal's Log

We celebrate with the Year 12 cohort of 2019 who performed well with strong results across the OP 1-5 range. We celebrate the achievement of all students with Jackson Laverick, Georgia Harle and Rebekah Pierce achieving an OP 1 which meant that 9% of OP eligible students at Pacific earned an OP 1 as compared with 2.85% statewide. Nine students achieved an OP 1-5 which was 26% as compared to 22.5% statewide, six students an OP 6-10, 16 students an OP 11-15. Of the cohort of 48 students, 73% were OP eligible, which was well above the state average of 49%. Of these OP eligible students, 89% achieved an OP 1-15. Students on both OP and vocational pathways have performed well, with 100% of students achieving a QCE or a Vocational Qualification. All students who applied for tertiary places received an offer. We are proud of our graduates and look forward to seeing each of them chart a purpose filled future.

Last Friday’s Welcome Breakfast provided a great opportunity for families to connect with each other. The friendly and generous hospitality provided by the Friends of Pacific, our Hospitality department, staff and senior students added to the atmosphere. Thank you to everyone who made the morning a special time of connection.

At both the Year 6-12 and Prep – Year 5 Commencement Services last week, we enjoyed the energy of our young people as we opened the school year and celebrated the role of our students as leaders within the College. At the Year 6-12 service, we also installed new staff and rededicated continuing staff members. We thank students, parents and staff for their energetic and warm engagement in both services.

Parents and students benefited a great deal from the Year 10, Year 12 and Prep to Year 5 Information Evenings this week. The evenings provided the opportunity to learn more from staff about learning focuses and pathways for the year, the range of resources and support processes provided by the College and the ways in which parents and students could enhance their learning. We thank parents and students for their attendance and particularly our teachers and staff who organised and presented at these evenings.

Well done to our Year 3-6 students who participated with great enthusiasm at their swimming carnival this week. There was great spirit evident both in and out of the pool. Thank you to Mr Darren Hooper, Mrs Natalie Campbell and PE staff for their organisation and leadership, Year 3-6 teachers for their assistance in coordinating the day and parents for their support.

We look forward to the return of our Year 7 students from their outdoor education experience this Friday. This experience has been an important opportunity for students to get to know each other and form new connections. We thank Head of Outdoor Education Ms Kim Wood for her organisation and leadership of this experience as well as Mr Andrew Block, Mrs Leah Croke, Mr Alex O’Connor, Mr Ben Ryan, Mrs Mel Ousley, Mr Brendan Delaney and Pastor Tim Jarick for their support of our students.

It was great to see the engagement of connection of our Year 10 and 12 students as they completed their leadership days this week, under the guidance of Lutheran Youth of Queensland (LYQ). Students enjoyed connecting and learning with the LYQ team and particularly two past school captains Harrison Dines and Michael Hewitt. Seeing many of our Year 12 students automatically give their jerseys to their Year 2 buddies to wear before putting them on themselves reflected the thoughtfulness of our older students as they started to build a special relationship with younger students who had written an introduction about themselves to share. Thank you to all the students for the way you engaged in the days and to Mr Mark Hauser for his organisation and leadership.

May God helps us start all that we do, from the heart.

Dr Bronwyn Dolling, Principal

From the College Pastor

It's Not Fair!

As we contemplate the thread of equality and social justice this week, do you remember as a child stamping your feet and saying; “It’s not fair!”? Or as a parent, have you had your child or teenager protest these words to you when they have felt aggrieved? Or have you felt the injustice of a situation in the workplace and complained with these words to a colleague? As humans, we have a deep sense of right and wrong, of perceived injustices towards us, especially when we feel we have been disadvantaged in some way and our rights have been curtailed.

Many of the things which we think are unjust in our lives are what some people call ‘First World problems’. I remember when I first moved into our house on the coast, I didn’t have phone services for three weeks and worse still, our family had no Wi-Fi. I was tempted to complain about the injustice of the situation. However, I needed to put my worries into perspective. The majority of the earth’s population are simply trying to live with enough food and water, remain safe from war, disease, or natural disasters. What we might think of as a justice issue is not really what God thinks of justice.

God’s sense of justice comes from mercy and humility. The Old Testament Prophet Micah puts it in succinct words. All God wants from us is; to act justly, love mercy, and walk humbly with your God (Micah 6:8). God wants us to be people of justice because all people are created equal in his eyes. All people are created in the image of God and are worthy of love, care and compassion. God wants us to treat his creation justly and with mercy. Jesus showed us what the kingdom of God looks like. It looks like good news for the poor, the oppressed, the vulnerable, the captive.

When we contemplate some of the challenges our world faces, it’s easy to get lost and disheartened by these huge global inequalities. But the challenge for all of us is to think locally and take a stand against things where we can make a difference, with the humility and mercy that God provides for us in Jesus.

Leadership

This week we had two significant events for Senior College students, with Year 12 and Year 10 students participating in their Leadership Days.

The Year 12 Leadership Day began with the College Captains hosting a barbeque breakfast for their cohort. This was very well-attended and was a great way to start their day as a group, before they joined with the Lutheran Youth of Queensland facilitators for a day of connection and vision-setting for their final year. At the end of the day, they joined in a special ceremony where they were officially welcomed into Year 12 by being presented with their badges by Dr Bronwyn Dolling and meeting their Year 2 buddies, who presented them with their senior jerseys. It was a pleasure to watch the cohort throughout the day and see how they have grown over the past three years, participating at such events. We wish all Year 12 students the very best for 2020 and look forward to walking with them this year.

On Wednesday, Year 10 students also spent the day with the LYQ team for their first Leadership Day at Pacific. There was high energy amongst all involved and everyone participated well. The purpose of the day was to explore how students interact with each other and how the cohort can come together to lead each other throughout the year. Students will have another opportunity to reflect on leadership in Term 4, when they come together for their second Leadership Day.

Date claimers for the coming week:

  • Tuesday 11th February – Year 10 Information Evening from 6.00pm in L13/14. All parents and students are invited to attend.
  • February – Year 7-12 Swim Carnival.

From the Head of Staff and Students P-5

Start of Year

As usual, the year has commenced many rich opportunities for our College community to connect. Thank you to those parents and family members who attended the Welcome Breakfast and Prep – Year 5 Commencement Service last Friday and the Prep – Year 5 Parent Information Evening on Wednesday. Your support is much appreciated by both staff and students. It is the relationships and communication that occurs between staff, students and parents that are fundamental in shaping the positive community and the successful learning environment which exist at the College. If you were unable to attend the Parent Information Evening, please contact your child’s teacher regarding the information discussed.

Well done to all students who participated in the Year 3-6 Swim Carnival on Tuesday. The weather cooperated and we had a fantastic day with excellent levels of participation and many examples of individual and team excellence. Participating in a swimming carnival can sometimes present a unique set of challenges. At Pacific, we rely heavily on the concepts covered in the You Can Do It Program, namely Getting Along, Persistence, Resilience, Confidence and Organisation. It was fantastic to see so many students lean on these learnt skills to compete to the best of their ability and reach the end of the pool with a smile on their faces. A special thank you to the many parents who assisted on the day, without your support the event could not have happened. Thank you also to all class teachers and HPE staff for their work on the day and in setting up the site. We particularly acknowledge Mr Darren Hooper and Mrs Natalie Campbell for their leadership and organisation of the carnival.

Pastoral Care

At Pacific, our Pastoral Care model is based on the learnings of Lutheran Theology, Positive Psychology and Harvard’s Project Zero. Through engagement with these learnings, there is a proactive focus on growing students as whole people, including the social and emotional. At the College, addressing any problem between students focuses on dealing with issues that may arise through an emphasis on reconciliation, developing emotional resilience and inculcating a supportive culture.

Our approach to conflict resolution is through restorative practice. This approach focusses on the harm that has been done and the obligation this brings to those responsible to ‘right the wrong’ as much as possible. It’s an approach that seeks to develop in the wrongdoer an understanding of the breadth and depth of the harm their behaviour has caused so that they can make amends to those most affected. In this way, it’s an educative approach. It is a very much a collaborative process and one that requires discussion and time, focusing on building empathy and equality.

It also ensures that those who have been most affected by the wrongdoing have the opportunity to be involved in working out what has to happen in order to move forward. Circle times, small group discussion and dialogue are some of the tools we use in order to develop a productive path forward for students.

Assemblies and Chapels

Every Monday, Prep – Year 5 staff and students attend assembly in the College gym. Assemblies provide an opportunity to connect as community at the beginning of the week and give guidance about upcoming events and matters concerning the Foundation and Junior Colleges. We also have the opportunity to celebrate our learning and social emotional development with our You Can Do It awards.

Friday morning also provides a chance to gather as a Prep – Year 5 community as we worship and honour our Christian Faith with student led chapel. Each week a different class is responsible for leading the worship service and reflect their understanding of the thread and Bible verse applicable to that week. Parents are warmly invited to attend both Assembly and Chapel, both of which start at 8.30am.

Year 5 Camp

Parents are advised that the Year 5 Camp will be held from 11th – 14th August at Bornhoffen. Please note this in your College Calendars, which were sent home last week.

Chess Mates

Chess Mates specialises in teaching chess to children of all age groups and skill levels. Younger students are taught through songs and stories, while older or more advanced students are taught openings, strategies and forward planning. Chess Mates is about making new friends and having fun while learning!

Classes are held at Pacific on Tuesdays from 3.00pm to 3.45pm. The cost is $14 per class. If you have any questions about the classes please either email info@chessmates.com.au or call Ash on 0415 256 452.

Connecting College and Community

Thank you to the many families who attended the Welcome Breakfast last Friday morning at the College. It was a magnificent way to round off the first week and a chance for students, parents and staff to interact while sampling an array of delectable breakfast items served by our College leaders.

We are extremely grateful to Mrs Colleen Beattie, Mrs Emma Lendrum and Mrs Rhana Holt, along with their hospitality team, for the breakfast. Thank you also to the student leaders, Mr Mark Hauser and the FoP team who looked after both the BBQ and guests. We are indeed very lucky to have such a committed group at Pacific.

Quote of the Week

Do not be dismayed by the brokenness of the world. All things break. And all things can be mended. Not with time, as they say, but with intention. So, go… The broken world waits in darkness for the light that is you. – L. R. Knost.

Missing the summer holidays? Jump into ‘Turtle Trackers’ and spend some time on the beach with 10-year-old Isaac as he attempts to protect the nesting turtles and their eggs, while also trying to help his mum run a busy caravan park.

“You know those movies where teenagers have the summer of their lives? This summer is not going to be that.” A laugh-out-loud story about growing up, accepting yourself and having a little fun. Maisie didn’t expect her summer plans to include entering a beauty pageant, but she has something to prove to her absent Dad, her boy-crazy best friend and, most importantly, herself.

Nate knows this is his last chance. Leaving juvie to live with an uncle he doesn’t know, Nate has low expectations about this next phase in his life, yet it can’t be worse than returning to home. But living with his uncle isn’t at all what he expects, nor the charming little fishing town, the slower lifestyle, space to breath, quirky young neighbour Henry or the intriguing, combat-boot and tartan-wearing Gem. It may be just the second chance Nate needs, if he can hang on to it. Perfect for fans of books about relationships, family and finding a place to belong.

Griffith Future Leaders Retreat

During the final week of the school holidays, I was privileged to attend the Griffith Future Leaders Retreat. The retreat was such a worthwhile and fantastic experience, which included an array of both educational and leisure activities such as sports sessions, drumming workshops and touring the Griffith Pharmacy and Pharmacology classrooms. One of the additional highlights was visiting the Griffith Sea Jellies Illuminated exhibit at Sea World. Throughout the three-day camp, we listened to a multitude of inspirational speakers such as Naomi White, Director of Metamorph co, Lucy Gregg from Ylead Association and public speaker Tim Bennet, providing us with a range valuable of skills to improve our presenting techniques in front of larger audiences.

The event was also a perfect opportunity to network with other like-minded leaders, in which we were able to discuss our goals and aspirations within our communities. Through meeting and reaching out to the other students, I truly feel as though I have made lifelong friends and connections. I highly recommend this program for Year 12 students.

PLC Run Club

Over recent years, Pacific has built a strong running culture through the PLC Run Club.

Students who sign up are asked to make a weekly commitment to the Club and attend most sessions.

Each running session will cater for all abilities, but the basic format will be as follows:

    • Warm up (stretching)
    • Strength and speed work (sprinting, specific strength skills for better running posture)
    • Endurance work (running longer distances at own pace)
    • Cool down (running game or stretches)

The Run Club will be held every Tuesday morning from 7.15am – 8.00am and the first session for the year is on Tuesday 18th February.

Pacific Boardriders Club

This year, Pacific will again offer the opportunity for Year 5-12 students to become members of the Pacific Boardriders (PBR). The program provides a structured opportunity to develop individual surfing skills and grow the culture of surfing within the College.

PBR sessions will be held on Friday mornings at locations around the southern end of the Sunshine Coast, dependent on prevailing conditions (primarily Currimundi Beach and Caloundra). Term 1 sessions will commence on Friday 28th February (Week 5). Sessions will also be offered in Semester 2 (Term 3 and 4).

Requirements for Participation

To be eligible to participate in PBR, participants must be able to swim and surf competently (negotiate the break and catch waves unassisted) in various surf conditions and provide all their own equipment (surfboard, wetsuit etc.). Parents are responsible for transporting their child to and from the session venue each Friday morning.

Due to stringent supervision and safety requirements, participation in the program will be capped at 24 students and will be dependent on individual competencies, including an ocean swim and board paddle, assessed by the teachers in charge.

Please note that these Friday morning sessions are not a ‘learn to surf’ program.

Making Friends and Having Fun!

Our first Free Come and Try Session was a whole lot of FUN! Studies show that encouraging young children to explore outdoor play is extremely beneficial and necessary for their development.

A big thank you to coach Kristy for leading the group.

Our next session is this Friday 7th February from 3.15pm – 4.15pm at the College. Send us a message to book a spot: PacificFC@pacluth.qld.edu.au.
