More Than A Word

The 2021 theme for Reconciliation Australia of More Than A Word, Reconciliation Takes Action, encourages all of us to reflect and then act on ways in which we can enhance relationships between the broader Australian Community and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. One of the actions highlighted on their website at is to take a stand against racism.  It is easy for all of us to have unconscious biases and attitudes.  One of our core values is that Pacific is a place where all people can feel safe and equally valued.  For this to be a lived value we need to develop an understanding, respect and appreciation for the richness that is brought into our community and lives through the diversity of our community and our indigenous culture.  Through listening carefully to each other and to nature, understanding and connection grows.  A wonderful reflection about this is presented by Miriam-Rose Ungunmerr-Baumann DADIRRI (Official Miriam-Rose Ungunmerr Video)

God sees all of humanity as equally loved parts of his creation.  In the New Testament there is a strong statement that all of humanity has been reconciled to God and each other through Jesus’ death and resurrection.  Our challenge is to have this equality of love and capacity to listen, flow through us and around us.

Principal's Log

Our community thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to be entertained by an outstanding production of Grease.  The talent shone through the voice, character, and movement of every member of the cast. Creative and powerful direction by Mrs Janine Delaney and her team, the talent, energy and timing unleashed by the choreography of Madison Randl and musical direction of Neil Booth, supported by Mrs Hickey’s creative and colourful costume and set design brought the class of 59 alive. The joy of performance flowed from the stage and reverberated through the audience. Congratulations to Mrs Janine Delaney and her team and all members of the cast and crew for a professional and thoroughly entertaining production. Thank you to Mrs Alisha Marxen, Mrs Ceilidh King, Mr Alex O’Connor, Ally Hickey, Mrs Wanda Hayes, Mr Damien Nolan, Mrs Janine Stone, Mr Brett Jones and Jayden Toohey for their leadership, and our parents for their support. A wonderful collaboration and celebration of talent.

Congratulations to Catalina Stylianou, Luka Stylianou, Jada Baker and Sienna Baker on their success at the recent Australian Kayaking Championships. Jada won gold in the U14 K1 and K2 200m sprints, Sienna Baker won gold for the U12 K2 200m and 500m and a Bronze for the K1 200m and 500m events, Luka won bronze for the U14 K4 200m and 500m and Catalina made the semifinals for the U16 K2 500m event. This is an outstanding performance and we thank Mr Gary Graves and his team for their support of our kayaking students.

We also congratulate Amedy Buchanan and Abigail Tracey who have been successful in being awarded a place in the Young Endeavour Youth Development Program. The girls were involved in a highly competitive selection process and now can look forward to working with other young people to sail a tall ship from Brisbane to Cairns.  We thank Ms Kim Wood for her support of these student’s application.

On Sunday a number of families came together to celebrate their first communion at St Mark’s.  It was a very special moment for these young people and their families as Pastor Ray, Pastor Tim and the St Mark’s congregation celebrated this important milestone. We look forward to growing with them in their faith journey here at St Mark’s and at Pacific.

Our netballers have been having one of their most successful seasons as part of the Fisherman’s Road competition.  We congratulate all of the teams on their season and wish them all the best for their final games and the upcoming finals.  Thank you to Head of Netball Development Ms Michelle Duffy and coaches Mrs Abi Blessing, Ms Mel Pietrala, Mrs Emma Lendrum, Ms Jayde Noble and Miss Catie O’Keefe for their support of the teams.

May God enable us to engage in deep listening to grow in our understanding and connection to each other.

National Reconciliation Week

Have you seen a cockatoo lately? A sulphur-crested white cocky, or what about the rarer black cockatoo?

For numerous indigenous peoples throughout Australia, the black and white cockatoos are totem animals for differing social groups and clans.

This is true for the Guugu Yimithirr people of far north Queensland. George Rosendale, a former elder and Lutheran pastor from the Hopevale community, tells the story of the black and white cockatoo and how they reconciled their differences. He writes;

The cockatoos were brothers who lived long ago. When they became men, the black cockatoo realised he was different. He did not like it. He became very angry with his father because he made him black. He decided to change the way things were. One day he was found by his brother, the white cockatoo, sitting under a tree, very upset and angry. ‘What is the matter with you, my brother?’ he asked.

‘I’m very angry with my father,’ he answered. ‘He made you white and he made me black. I don’t like it. I’m going to change my colour.’

He went to his uncle, who lived over the range. He asked him for honey and clay. His uncle gave him what he wanted. He took the clay and made it into powder; then he put the honey all over himself and sprinkled the powered clay over the honey. He looked at himself and said: ‘Now I am like my brother.’

His grandfather, the storm bird, was very angry with the foolish brother. He called the North wind to bring rain. The monsoons came, and it rained and rained and rained, and washed all the clay and honey away.

Later, his brother found him again sitting under the tree, angry, sad and sorry for himself. He said, ‘My brother, you did a foolish thing to hurt our father. We are his sons. He made both of us and he loves us. Come on, be happy! Our father loves you just as much as he loves me. We both belong to him. Be happy and rejoice.’

To this day, the black cockatoos are happy. They even sing while flying and eating.[1]

This sounds very much like another well-known biblical story, the parable of the lost or prodigal son. In this gospel story of Jesus, two differing sons need reconciliation. Reconciliation because their relationships are broken and fractured. There is anger. There is hurt to the Father and to each other. Forgiveness and restoration is needed.

Reconciliation is needed in our lives too, because as humans, we are good at creating barriers between differing peoples. Through Jesus, we are made one, no black or white, no male no female, no Jew no Gentile. We are all equally loved and reconciled to one another and to God. We are given peace and common ground that is beyond the differences and the divisions we develop.

The theme for National Reconciliation Week this year is: “More than a word, reconciliation takes action.”  Reflecting on this story of the black and white cockatoos, what does reconciliation look like to you? In what ways can reconciliation be put into action in your relationships, in your school, in your community, in our country?

Several years ago, Aboriginal Christian leaders in Australia acknowledged that: “Through Christ, we have the strength to be reconciled to each other and to the land. This means we are involved with Christ in the process of breaking down the barriers that divide Australian Aboriginal peoples from each other and from other Australians in this land.”[2]

In our schools, in our family relationships, in our communities, in our country, Christ is calling us, inviting us to be part of the healing he offers, reconciliation between black and white. How can we walk, as well as talk reconciliation in deliberate ways? 

A prayer for reconciliation…

Lord Jesus, you are the one who calls and invites us into reconciliation. The reconciliation you accomplished on the cross. Heal the divisions and hostilities in our land between people of different race, colour and religion. Forgive us for the barriers and separations we create and give us new ways to put our words of reconciliation into real-life tangible action. In your name, we pray. Amen.

Grease Production

I am sure that much has already been said about the great success of the school musical “Grease”, however it was a privilege to be able to see, first hand, the hours of hard work and dedication come to fruition over the weekend. The cast and production crew should be commended on their efforts and professional approach to this event. To be able to juggle the demands of a production as well as an academic workload is a remarkable feat. I wish you all the very best for your upcoming exams and end of term assessments and pray that you have a smooth end to the term as it approaches quickly.

Red Shield Door Knock Appeal

It has been great to see the Pacific Lutheran community get behind the Red Shield Appeal this month. Students and families have contributed to the Salvation Army’s appeal through “guess the jellybean” competitions, ‘red food’ tuckshop purchases, casual clothes day and of course the food drive. The amount of food donated already has been outstanding and I would encourage all to contribute where they can.

Uniform Expectations

With the Winter season fast approaching, we have begun to see a change in temperature. We are now in full Winter uniform for all students. Parents and students are reminded that formal uniform items are to be worn with the formal uniform, and sports uniform items are to be worn with sports uniform. There should not be mixing of one set of uniform with the other, in particular sports jackets and formal jumpers or sports hats and formal hats. Senior College students are to be wearing their blazers to and from school each day, and all boys need to wear ties throughout the day, along with wear navy or black socks under their long pants (no coloured socks) as per the school uniform policy.

A reminder that for girls, make-up of any form (foundation, false nails or eye-lash extensions) are not allowed and should not be worn to school.  As per the handbook, normal jewellery expectations still apply. For all students, hats still need to be worn (on heads) to and from school, and at all classroom breaks.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the school for clarification.

2021 Friday Night Basketball competition

Term Three marks the start of the Friday Night Schools Basketball competition, which is one of the most popular sporting events in the school sport calendar. Some important information to note for this year:

  • The Senior (Yr 11/12) basketball season will start in Week 1 of Term 3, running for 9 weeks (including finals matches in week 8 and 9 of term).
  • Junior and Intermediate (Year 7-10) teams will start playing later in Term 3 and therefore conclude late in Term 4 (see below for approximate structure)




















Senior Rounds













Junior & Intermediate




  • Only 1 parent per player, per team will be allowed entry as spectators.
  • All teams will be required to supply a scorer for each game, so parents please be prepared to volunteer. If you need help in learning how to score, it is easy to learn at each venue (referee and convenors can help you).
  • Teams have been finalised and will be emailed more information throughout the term.
  • Games can be played at venues all around the Sunshine Coast from between 4.00pm – 8.00pm and parents will need to organise their own transport to and from venues.
  • Anyone who signs up will need to commit to the entire season (once teams have been entered, we must fill all nominated teams).

For more information about the season, please contact Mr Hauser as soon as possible.

Finally, I would like to acknowledge and thank the College Captains for their tireless efforts, thoughts and ideas throughout the year so far. It has been tremendously refreshing and energising to work with such a motivated and enthusiastic group of leaders who are passionate and enthusiastic about supporting and growing the College in a variety of ways. A lot of their work goes unnoticed and behind the scenes, but their contribution this year alone has been tremendous. Keep up the great work.

God bless.

What is National Reconciliation Week?

Every year, National Reconciliation Week is celebrated from the 27th May to the 3rd  June. It is a time dedicated to building positive, respectful relationships between Australians and celebrating indigenous culture. The overarching aim of this period is to explore how we can best contribute to the reconciliation process.

Every year there is a theme attributed to National Reconciliation Week, which reinforces the idea that we all have a part to play. The theme for 2021 ‘More than a word’ is a tribute to that. Reconciliation takes action, so this year’s theme is all about taking action.

Every year workplaces, schools, early learning services, community groups, reconciliation groups, and people right across the country host a whole range of events.

Please follow the link below to access ‘Colour For Reconciliation’ by Jessica Johnson

Reconciliation must live in the hearts, minds and actions of all Australians as we move forward, creating a nation strengthened by respectful relationships between the wider Australian Community, and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

Young Endeavour Program

Congratulations to Year 10 students Amedy Buchanan and Abigail Tracey who have been selected to participate in this year’s Young Endeavour Youth Development program. 

The Young Endeavour program is internationally recognised in the field of sail training.  This experiential program is delivered over the course of eleven days, students from all over the nation come together to learn a diverse range of skills required to sail a tall. 

The immersive nature of the program encourages youth to rapidly develop interpersonal, leadership and teamwork skills, which are transferable to everyday life and career settings.  The program is also designed to elicit an appreciation of the strength diversity brings and instil a desire to contribute back to the community, increasing both individual and social capital.

Music Update

Term Two has been a busy time for staff and students in Music!  On Friday 14th May, we were invited to support the Caloundra RSL at their annual memorial for the HSA Centaur.  Eliza Bryan, Nicola Hewitt and Franklin Stamm, accompanied by Mr David Simpfendorfer, were honoured to sing the hymns and lay a wreath in commemoration of the 268 lives lost when the AHS Centaur was torpedoed off the Coast of Moreton Island.

On Monday 24th May, the Jazz Band were privileged to have guest conductor, Dr Rob McWilliams complete a short rehearsal with them.  After working internationally for many years, Dr McWilliams is currently an Education Outreach Clinician for Yamaha Music and a sessional lecturer at the Jazz Institute in Brisbane.  Although our session was very short, he gave us some helpful insights on how to be better musicians and how to strengthen our band.  We look forward to having him back in the near future, and hope to work with him for longer sessions with some more of our ensembles.

Date Claimer:  On Saturday 5th June, the Music Department is holding a fundraising event for our 2022 Music Tour.  From 7.30am – 3.30pm we will be at Bunnings Caloundra hosting a sausage sizzle.  The Jazz Band will provide some musical entertainment throughout the day.  If you are in the area, please stop by to grab a sausage and help us raise money for our upcoming trip!

On the same date, student musicians Frank and Louis Martin will be performing at the Australian Busking Championships in Noosa.  We wish them all the best!

All ensembles have been busily rehearsing for a number of upcoming performances.  On Friday 18th June, the Senior Strings are participating in a Combined Schools String Workshop at Siena Senior Catholic College.  They, along with Junior Strings, are also preparing for the Sunshine Coast Junior Eisteddfod early next term.  All ensembles are looking forward to performing at our Semester One Ensembles Concert on Thursday 24th June!   More details will be out soon.

Thank you for your ongoing support!
