Investing In Our Best

Getting the best from ourselves requires focus and investment of time and energy.  Growing in our understanding of our best selves is a lifetime journey.  We learn and grow through the support of parents, teachers, coaches, and mentors, through what we read and what we experience. Having the habit of making the most of the learning that life presents and actively seeking ways to enhance our learning helps to keep us growing to be the best that we can be.  It involves being intentional in our goals, being open to learning, being prepared to take risks, committed to giving our best, and learning through success and failure.  This learning is a hope-filled endeavour of reflection, action, and stillness.

The stories in the Bible, provide important life lessons that speak to us in different ways at different times of our lives.  They can provide an important mirror for reflection and growth. Most importantly throughout these stories, there is the constancy of God’s unconditional love and grace for us.  God’s love and forgiveness empowers us to graciously grow through all of life’s experiences.

Principal's Log

Welcome to the start of Term 3.  It is always exciting to feel the energy as staff, students, and their families return to the College.  We particularly welcome new students and their families.  We also extend a special welcome to Head of Hospitality, Mrs Colleen Beattie and Year 1 teacher, Mrs Lara Stiller who return from leave, Mr Chris Gilmore as a teacher of English and Humanities in the Middle and Senior College, and Mrs Belinda Dawkins as the Human Resource and Compliance Officer.

We congratulate our Year 10 STEM students who were the Champion School for the day at the Sunshine Coast section of the National Science and Engineering Challenge 2022 held at the University of the Sunshine Coast.  This is an event co-sponsored by the University of New South Wales and provides the opportunity for students to test their knowledge, skills, creativity, and ingenuity as they compete across 9 different activities.  Well done to the students and teachers Mr Wes Warner, Mrs Claire Richards, and Mrs Marnie Whittaker.

There was a real buzz on Wednesday night (even before the State of Origin) as students and families took advantage of being able to speak with teachers and outside providers at the Year 11 2023 Subject Expo.  Students expressed their appreciation for the evening which enabled them to deepen and expand their thinking about future subject choices and pathways.  Thank you to our Year 10 students and their families for their support and to our teachers for their enthusiasm in sharing their passion and knowledge about their subject areas. A special thank you to Head of Learning Senior College, Mrs Anne-Marie Gerlach and Head of Career Development, Mrs Wanda Hayes for their organisation.

We look forward to being able to connect face to face with parents and students as part of the student, teacher, and parent conferences next week.  Invitations for families to book for these interviews have been emailed to families earlier this week.  These three-way conversations strengthen the partnership of learning that occurs and each child’s agency to continue to strive to be and do their best.

We look forward to a semester where each of us takes up the challenge and experiences the joy of growing to be the best we can be.  We pray that God would guide and empower us to make the most of the opportunities and blessings He has given us.

Dr Bronwyn Dolling, Principal

From the Head of Staff and Students P-5

How are you?

So many times, over the years we have all asked someone how they are. So often it is a cursory question or a common courtesy to each other. The busyness that surrounds our days rarely lends the time to be able to really dissect how someone really is. Fortunately, the growing movement around having conversations about well-being and kindness has shone a light in areas once seen as off-limits or uncomfortable. More and more we are asking one another how we are and taking the time to reflect and listen to each other. Listening with empathy is a powerful technique.

Our students are no different. With a continual news cycle, our students can be impacted by subjects and conversations that have the potential to worry young minds.

Our theme this term focuses on the notion of wellbeing and what it means to be “well”. But it would be remiss to expect anyone to be in a state of bliss all the time! Life requires persistence and tenacity. Our students require discomfort and resilience for them to comprehend and construct a sense of wellness. Every day we are faced with situations that present uncertainty. The skills and attributes that we arm ourselves with as we navigate challenging times are the systems that allow us to rebuild and manage our sense of self.

Building our state of mind can be a complicated initiative. Steve Biddulph, the author of Raising Boys and Raising Girls, recently wrote a book Fully Human. Within this book, Steve describes the mind as a four-storey building. On the ground floor is healthy eating, exercising, and resting well to sustain physical health. The second storey is our feelings, where and how we emotionally respond to the evolving landscapes around us. The third storey is our logic. How do we think through issues with reasoning and facts? The fourth floor is our connection to “something bigger”. This can include our faith, relationships, the environment and mindfulness. One floor cannot survive without the other. He states that by spending the appropriate time in each “floor” we are building our wellness and self-awareness. By understanding that we can at times can get stuck on a floor, we build our skills to move and build our personal wellness.

When we zoom out on the life of a student at the College, we see that these four floors are covered by the experiences that they encounter. They are challenged physically and educated about self-care. Our You Can Do It and The Pacific Way programs are focused on student recognition of emotions and regulation and how they can help build capacity. Our curriculum develops logic and problem-solving. Our Lutheran values and positive school framework show that without a sense of something bigger than ourselves, we are less than we can be. The analogy of the whole child is encapsulated beautifully by these attributes.

This journey is not possible without the support of the wider community and we are thankful for the continuing support of your children in their journey here at the College. We look forward to supporting your child during the remainder of this term and beyond.

The Science and Engineering Challenge Day

The Science and Engineering Challenge is an annual competition that travels across the entire country throughout the year with wickedly simple yet challenging activities that test students’ ability to solve real life problems.

Throughout COVID-19 lockdowns, it has been difficult for the Challenge to secure a date for the Sunshine Coast.  Initially, it was to be run at the start of the year but had to be rescheduled and was held at the start of Term 3. 

This day-long competition is designed to provide Year 10 (or Year 9) high school students with a positive experience of science and engineering through a range of activities.  Each school had teams of 2-4 competing in 9 different activities.  Pacific Lutheran College competed on the first day of the competition and was successful in taking home the Champion School trophy for this day.

The Year 10 STEM class, led by Mrs Marnie Whittaker was divided into teams that were based on the students’ ability to collaborate, communicate and problem solve.  The competition was tight throughout the day. Pacific Lutheran College won the day with a margin of 10 points over its nearest rivals.  The highlight of the day was seeing the tenacity and teamwork of all members of this amazing class, especially in those activities which appeared beyond them.

This outcome is only possible through the great work of the students and the wonderful teaching by the staff in the Science, Mathematics, Engineering, and Technology departments, Mrs Marnie Whittaker and Mrs Claire Richards.

Food for Thought

SPECIAL REPORT: Respectful Language

Young people are being influenced by the language around them. It is becoming more common for them to hear derogatory terms or offensive language on the streets, on social media channels, streaming services and in some forms of modern music. Proliferating the use of such language can sometimes normalise, glamorise and sanitise their impact, taking their meaning out of context. Words can be hurtful, racist, homophobic, misogynistic or even discriminatory. Using disrespectful language is considered socially unacceptable, and if not addressed early, can become a serious problem.

Parents and carers play an important role by proactively monitoring what their children are viewing or being exposed to and discussing the use of words or their origin. This can help prevent inappropriate or disrespectful language being used.

As young people develop their language skills, it is important for them to have a clear understanding of the impact of their choice of words on others and how their words can impact other people’s perspective of them - an important and essential skill to learn as they progress in their personal and professional development.

Rooball Carnival

Our U6, U7, U9 and U10 teams participated in the Rooball Carnival last Saturday, while our competitive teams played rescheduled matches.

Match Reports

U6 Mantarays - Olympic gold, The Ashes, The Melbourne Cup. Coveted Prizes but all pale in comparison to the pinnacle of sport - the Rooball Medallion. Three games delivered thrice the guts, thrice the glory, and thrice highlights. The play was sublime, like a decadent hot chocolate on a chilly day. Ducking, diving, weaving, and smashing the back out of the net a record five times. Breathtaking! Manager Mike

U7 Stingrays - What a cracking afternoon for football. Our U7 Stingrays played hard for three solid games. We played Bli Bli, Stella Maris and then Currimundi. Everyone played well. Special thanks to our adopted Stingrays for the day Georgia and Mila. Congratulations to the players for their excellent sportsmanship and efforts, especially Nate and Edward, who helped Bli Bli out when they were short. We think we are lucky to have such an awesome group of children. Well done Stingrays. Everyone was so amazing they all got a medal!

U9 Seahorses – The Seahorses & Co had a fun afternoon at the Carnival. Lots of amazing runs and great skills on display. It was fantastic to see young Owen, Mieka & Indie playing so well with the girls. Three fun-filled and nail-biting games, we just wished they were a little longer as we were all having so much fun. Well done Seahorses and thanks coach Phong for stepping in and leading the team.

U12 Razors – The team played an awesome game against one of the stronger teams in their group. With two players down, the Razors held off the opposition for a 0-0 score at halftime. With all Razor players giving it their all, they provided a great challenge for the Raptors, allowing them only 1 goal for the whole game! The Razors attacked several times but were unable to gain any goals. It was a great game to watch as the Razors really played well as a team. Well done! Special thanks to Chase and Mani from the Marlins who came to give us a hand. Also, thanks to Aaron for stepping in as coach. Final score 0-1.

U14 Barracudas - Travelled to Palmview to play current top of the ladder holders Currimundi Makos. With PFC down on troops and fielding only 10 players, a full-strength Currimundi team shot to an early 2-0 lead before the team was able to shut down some influential opposing playmakers and turn the game around. Come halftime, the Barras were up 4-3. The team then went on a scoring blitz early in the second half to lead 7-3 at one point before the tired bodies gave up two late goals. In the end, the Barras won 7-5 in a very entertaining game. Big shout out to Ronan for player of the match, stepping into the unfamiliar goalkeeping position for the team and doing a great job with plenty of shots coming his way. Well done also to Bruce and Ned B for their defensive efforts that helped turn the match. Kai and Taj were very clever across the midfield and Nic led ably as captain. Barracudas showed much resilience – the coach and manager are very proud.
