New Families Welcome Breakfast
What a way to end the first week! The New Families Breakfast was a fabulous opportunity for our families, 2021 and 2020 leaders, staff and FoP members to meet and greet. We were treated to a wonderful array of goodies from our hospitality team and soulful tunes from two very talented PLC students, Frank and Louis. We are very grateful we can run an event such as this and kick off the celebrations for our 20th year!
Celebrating 20 years
As a member of Friends of Pacific, you have the opportunity to model, guide, evolve and involve your community - all while meeting new people. So, I extend a warm invitation for all parents, caregivers and staff to join us for our AGM and first meeting for the year on Tuesday evening, February 16th at PLC.
It’s so important as parents and caregivers to be involved in the community ourselves. Our children’s transition into adulthood is strengthened with positive role models such as those found at Pacific. Children thrive when they develop healthy relationships with important people within their community. Children ultimately benefit when encouraged to get involved with activities that are about giving to the broader community and world.
For those old enough, take a moment and cast your mind back to when you were twenty. Perhaps you were at uni, or working or taking a gap year (back when you could travel). You could vote, probably had your driver’s licence and were starting to pay taxes. You had become your own person. Your unique character was formed, modelled and guided by family, friends, teachers and the community.
And so it is with Pacific Lutheran College. Under the guiding hands of Dr Dolling and staff, Pacific has come of age. Creating traditions while creating innovations. Evolving and involving, just as the Sunshine Coast community has evolved.
This year, Pacific, with Dr Dolling as Principal, celebrates 20 years. In recognition of the event, FOP and the College Council presented Dr Dolling with a commemorative pin created by PLC parent and jewellery designer, Rita Williams at the recent Year 6-12 opening service.
We thank Dr Dolling for her service, commitment and guidance throughout the 20 years.
Mooloolaba Tri Volunteering Opportunity
Pacific is volunteering at the Mooloolaba Tri on Saturday 13th March, 10am - 4.30pm, and we are looking for 20 parents and Middle / Senior College helpers who would like to join the Pacific / FoP volunteer team. It’s a six-hour commitment at Mooloolaba and promises to be a rewarding experience assisting competitors to rack their bike prior to the race on Sunday. Volunteers receive a t-shirt and food. Pacific will receive a donation for every volunteer we provide on the day.
If you would like more information or can commit to helping out, please contact Ange in the Middle College Office or Mrs Jenny Lee.
