Celebrating our Fathers and Men

Father’s Day provides the opportunity for us to appreciate and be grateful for the important role that fathers have in our lives. Within our community men play an important role in mentoring and providing opportunity for young people to grow. They also provide important support and leadership for peers. Many of our co-curricular activities occur through the generosity of men giving time to provide expanded opportunities. While we are unable to come together as a community to celebrate our Dad’s and Lad’s Breakfast we say a heartfelt thank you to all of our men for the very important role they play in shaping a “village” that enables young people to thrive.

We pray that God would bless all of the men within our community and enable them to see the difference they make through who they are, as well as through what they do.

Principal's Log

This week it has been a pleasure to offer positions of leadership to the College Captains and Pacific Action Group Captains for 2022.   The joy and enthusiasm to contribute to the community was evident as they accepted their positions.  We congratulate all of our captains and look forward to the leadership of the whole of our 2022 cohort as they begin the transition to formal leadership of the College.

The 20th Anniversary Soiree has been postponed to 2022 because of the current uncertainty around conditions for events due to changing restrictions that arise as COVID-19 safety measures are enacted.  We were hopeful that Term 4 would bring greater certainty and opportunity to stage this outdoor event.  However, in our current changing context and because much of the formal planning and preparation needs to occur at this time we have decided to wait until next year. Our hope is that in 2022 we will be able to come together and enjoy being community as we celebrate our 21st!

Supporting young people’s creativity as they play, has been a strong underpinning of the College. It is exciting to see the completion of our newest Year 3-5 playground which has a range of loose parts that will enable children to create different spaces and contexts in their play. We thank Mrs Sue Zweck for her planning and Harmony Landscapes for their creation and consideration.

It has been exciting to see our students engage with great enthusiasm in Mountain Biking, one of our newer Middle and Senior College sport offerings.  Over the past week, students competed in the Sunshine Coast Schools Mountain Biking Competition with Thomas Ford taking out 3rd place. We congratulate all of the students that participated and thank Mr Chris Barlett for the growth of this sport in our community.

We thank God for our fathers and the many men who enrich our lives and pray that God would guide and encourage them.

Creative Makers

I have filled Bezalel with wisdom, with understanding, with knowledge and with all kinds of skill.  He can make beautiful patterns in gold, silver and bronze.  He can cut and set stones.

He can work with wood. In fact, he can work in all kinds of crafts.

Exodus 31:3-5

God has made each of us with the ability and desire to make beautiful things. In the first chapter of the Bible, we find out that God loves creating; it is in his nature. God creates the world and then sits back and admires its beauty. As human beings who bear the image of God and we all have this inbuilt ability to make and create objects of incredible beauty and skill, just like God.    

In the second book of the Bible, we hear of Bezalel, who had this creative ability to skillfully make things with his hands. God used Bezalel to make the furnishings of the Old Testament tabernacle, which was the travelling tent where the Jews worshipped before they moved into the promised land and later built a temple. We are told that Bezalel was a skilled craftsman who could make beautiful patterns in gold, silver and bronze and cut and set stones and work with wood and other materials. In the Jewish tradition, Bezalel was thirteen years old when he made these beautiful objects.

Even if we think we are not natural born artists, all of us join in God’s creative work in the world. We all get to create things that bring joy and beauty to others. It happens when we create great works of art or music and when we do the more mundane things of life. When we cook or pick out clothes to wear when we tend our gardens and nurture plants to grow. When we perfect a move in sport or doodle away on paper when we take notes in a class or are bored in meetings. We are constantly creating, using this deep God-given desire to make things.

Like Bezalel from the Old Testament, God calls us to use these creative abilities to serve others and bring beauty to the world. God loves that about each of us.

May you, like Bezalel, be encouraged to use your creative impulses to bless others with joy.

A Pacific Guide - Preparing for Examinations

The Year 12 two-week Mock External Examination Block has commenced. It is a timely and important reminder for all students at Pacific to remain engaged in learning and focused on their preparation for exams and assessment, and to be confident that consistent effort has prepared them well to produce their best work.  With only a few weeks remaining in Term 3, a strong finish is always important.

By following the link to School TV, located on the My PLC tab of the College webpage, both students and parents can download resources on how to combat exam jitters.  This includes what to do the night before and morning of exams; secrets and tips for Year 12 exam preparation; tips on great study; how to de-stress before an exam; and what parents can say to their children when receiving results that are less than anticipated. 

While Year 12s are juggling study at home, study at school or engaging in a scheduled mock external examination, it is important for students to consider being responsible when balancing study, socialising and casual work commitments.  Leading psychologist, Dr Michael Carr-Gregg shares his insight, “Balance is key when it comes to getting the most out of the brain. Students need to take responsibility for when to study and when to socialise.”

Pacific Play Space

Pacific has a new play space where the students will be able to engage in using loose parts.

In 1972, architect and artist Simon Nicholson developed the Theory of Loose Parts: materials which can be moved around, designed and redesigned and tinkered with; creating infinitely more opportunities for creative engagement than static materials and environments.

During Term 4 we will gradually introduce each class to our new play space and facilitate student learning around the use of loose parts. The provision of resources will provide opportunities for the students to discover, create, imagine and improvise.

Benefits of loose parts as an everyday resource:

  • Portable – this is appealing to children and allows them to have ownership over their play experiences
  • Open- ended – they are inherently flexible and can be used in endless ways
  • Sensory- perfect to learn about textures, weights, patterns
  • Encourages imagination and creativity
  • Developmentally appropriate
  • Develops skills and competency – encourages problem solving, co-operation, decision making, fine and gross motor skills, independence and widens vocabulary

“When students interact with loose parts, they enter a world of ‘what if’ that promotes the type of thinking that leads to problem solving and theoretical reasoning. Loose parts enhance children’s ability to think imaginatively  and see solutions, and they bring a sense of adventure and excitement to play”

~ Daly and Beloglovsky 2015

Visit by Registered Nurse for Free Prep Vision Screening

Good vision is important for a child’s educational, physical and social development. Vision screening checks for common eye conditions that may impact your child’s ability to see and therefore impact their learning and development.

A Registered Nurse will be visiting the school Term 4 – Week 1 – Thursday 6th October to conduct vision screening for children in their prep year. An email with further information on the program and a link to complete the online consent form has been emailed to all Prep families. Parents do not need to be present for screening, however if you would like to be, please contact the school to arrange this.

If your child’s vision is screened, you will be advised of the results in writing. If a vision concern is found, you will receive a phone call from the nurse to discuss referral to an eye health professional for further assessment. If a vision concern is identified and your child requires glasses, eligible health care card holders may be assisted with free basic glasses through the Spectacle Supply Scheme.

Participation in vision screening is not compulsory. If you do not wish for your child to participate in screening, please complete the consent form and indicate that you wish to decline screening.

If you have any questions, please contact the Primary School Nurse Health Readiness Program on 1800 687 372 or the College Nurses on 54367311.

Child Protection Policy

Pacific recognises that protecting students from harm and the risk of harm is fundamental to maximising their personal and academic potential. The welfare and best interests of the children within our College will always be a primary consideration.

We expect our students to show respect to our staff and volunteers and to comply with safe practices. We expect all employees to ensure that their behaviour and relationships with students reflects proper professional standards of care and are not unlawful. The College will respond diligently to a report of suspected or actual harm, or risk of harm to a student resulting from either within the College or from outside of the College.

What does the College mean by harm?

Queensland legislation defines harm as:

  • Any detrimental effect of a significant nature on the child’s physical, psychological or emotional wellbeing. It is immaterial how the harm is caused. Harm can be caused by:
    • Physical, psychological or emotional abuse or neglect;
    • Sexual abuse or exploitation; or
    • Domestic or family violence.

How does the College protect students from harm?

The College has a comprehensive Child Protection Policy, which outlines the actions to be taken if a member of staff or a parent of the College becomes aware or reasonably suspects that harm has been done to a student by other staff, people outside the College or by other students. The policy is accessible on the College web-site and on Nav.

What should you do if you become aware or reasonably suspect that harm has been caused to a student of the College by a member of staff, someone outside of the College or by other students?

You should report your concerns to the Principal or member of the Administration and Learning Executive or to any other member of College staff.

What will happen next?

If you report your concerns to a member of staff other than the Principal, the member of staff will report it to the Principal immediately. If the subject of the complaint is the Principal then the member of staff will report to the Chairperson of the College Council.

Child Protection Policy and Procedures

Every student has the right to feel safe and free from harm while at Pacific Lutheran College. We expect students to respect their teachers and other students and we expect that they will receive the same respect in return. Students should never allow themselves to feel unsafe without reporting it to someone they trust.

Who should a student tell if they do not feel safe at school or at home?

Any member of staff, including the Pastor. If a student does not feel comfortable talking to a member of staff, they may like to write him or her a letter. If a student would prefer to talk to somebody outside of the College on a confidential basis, they can also call Kids Help Line which is a free call – 1800 551 800.

What will happen if a student reports what is happening to a member of staff?

If the concern is worrying the student but not causing them immediate harm, then the member of staff will discuss ways to solve their problem. If the concern is serious and the member of staff believes that the student is being harmed or is in danger of being harmed, he or she will report it to the Principal.

What if the student does not want the member of staff to tell the Principal?

The member of staff will aim to keep the student’s concerns confidential as much as possible. However, if the member of staff is aware or reasonably suspects that harm has been caused to a student of the College, the law states that the matter must be reported to the Principal and it may have to be reported to the Police. If the staff member has no choice about reporting what the student has told them, he or she will explain to the student exactly what will happen next.

The most important thing is that the student feels safe and free from harm. Students must tell someone if they are being harmed or afraid that they will be harmed.

Pacific has a legal and moral responsibility to ensure that students, staff and members of the College community are not subjected to behaviours, practices or processes that may constitute harassment, discrimination, vilification, or victimisation and is therefore committed to developing an environment which promotes respect for a person’s integrity, equitable treatment and natural justice.

Taking and publishing photos, and recordings of school-based activities

Recording of school-based activities should only be for personal use and should not be published in a public manner without the permission of the College. This would include social networking sites such as Facebook, Instagram or You Tube. Publishing images without permission of those in the image contravenes the College’s privacy policy. Copyright permissions are also infringed upon if music from public performances is broadcasted or duplicated.

Author Visit

Our scheduled author visits for P-2 and Years 6-7 had to be cancelled due to Covid lockdowns interstate but fortunately our Year 8-9 author visit was able to go ahead.

He is a former editor of Surfing Life and Tracks magazines and has written numerous books about surfing culture and history, as well as biographies of Mick Fanning and Mark Occhilupo.

Pacific Mountain Biking

On Friday 27th August nine students from Pacific Mountain Biking competed in the Sunshine Coast Schools Mountain Bike Competition against over 300 other Sunshine Coast students. Students could have up to five attempts at three stages which targeted different strengths - an endurance stage, a flow stage and a technical stage. This race format required students to strategise and incorporate new ways of generating and maintaining speed and momentum as their legs fatigued.

The students represented the school well, with many achieving top ten results. A standout performance from Thomas Ford who achieved 3rd position, getting him on the podium for the senior division.

All the boys relished the opportunity to test their skills and fitness against other keen mountain bikers their age and it proved to be a valuable learning experience. Very well done to the following students who represented the school:

Charles Ford, Sam McKean, Archie Friend, Riley Mannion, Charlie Schefe, Archie Palmer, Jayden Stokes, Joshua Stevenson, Thomas Ford. 

Race times and results can be viewed here Race results.

Developing Athletes Program

Pacific Lutheran College has a great culture of engagement with sport. As a way of supporting and developing our keen athletes, we are piloting a Developing Athletes Program over Terms 3 and 4.

Students who were top points scorers based on their engagement in competitive school sport teams and participation in QSS representative pathways were invited to participate in this trial program. The program started last Friday and there were a variety of activities on offer for students. Activities included an introduction to USC’s High Performance Program in the morning with an athlete ambassador and then an afternoon fitness testing session with high performance strength and conditioning coaches from The FitLab.

The data from these fitness sessions will be used to create strength and conditioning programs for the students to utilise over the coming weeks. It is an exciting opportunity that we hope to continue to grow and develop into next year.

Match Report – 2021 Preliminary Final at Pacific

Our U14 Pacific Seals played their Plate Playoff match against Caloundra Red at Pacific Lutheran College on the weekend. While the end result didn’t go the way of the Seals, they should be proud of the effort and determination they showed on the field and at every training session during the season. Well done to Josh for picking up the Rebel Above and Beyond Award. Awesome work Seals and congratulations Caloundra. Thank you to Matt, Chris and Harrison for coaching and managing the team once again this season. Thank you also to Shannon, our club photographer, for capturing the amazing moments during the game.

Our mighty U16 Pacific Cobras took on the Bli Bli Jesters in the Preliminary Final at Pacific Lutheran College on the weekend. With fairly even possession in the first quarter, the Jesters then went into full flight mode, gaining the upper hand with the first goal. A second followed not long after half time to cement a 2-0 lead. As the second half progressed and with more possession, the Cobras turned the tide back to Pacific, levelling the score at 2-2 with two unbelievable goals. Then, with their turbo chargers switched on, the Cobras snagged a third goal to lead 3-2 with eight minutes to go. Pacific held on to take the win and booked themselves a berth in the Sunshine Coast Churches Soccer Association’s U16 Grand Final against Caloundra City this weekend at Chancellor Park Soccer Club.

We commend the Jesters on their sportsmanship and play. It made for an enjoyable, although somewhat nerve-racking game for the spectators. Congratulations to Sean and Marley who both picked up playing awards for their efforts during the game. Congratulations also to Matt on his two goals. Thank you to Ray and Greg for coaching and managing the team, and to K3 Coaching for their guidance and training throughout the season. Special thanks again to Shannon, our club photographer extraordinaire, who captured the outstanding moments of the game.

Come and support the three Pacific teams playing on Grand Final Day at Chancellor Park Soccer Club, Harmony Fields, Palmview. There will be a Pacific tent set up on the sidelines for players and supporters.
