Queen Elizabeth II: A Life of Service

Many of us will have joined people around the world in reflecting on and being thankful for the life of service of Queen Elizabeth II.  Through being present for people in times of celebration and hardship the Queen has influenced the lives of millions across the world throughout her 70-year reign. She is being recognised, respected and appreciated as someone who put the needs of others before her own and fulfilled her promise to serve her people with calmness, dignity and strength.  Throughout her reign, the Queen expressed her faith and trust in God, the power of prayer and encouraged people to have hope. While being strongly committed to her faith, she was respectful and welcoming to people of different faiths, beliefs, cultures and traditions. Queen Elizabeth II has led an extraordinary life. As we pause and reflect, we say thank you.

Principal's Log

This week as we introduced the College Captains for 2023 at our Year 6-12 Assembly, we reflected on the example of servant leadership of Queen Elizabeth II and prayed for our incoming leaders and the gifts that our outgoing leaders had given the community.  We congratulate the Captains for 2023 and wish them God’s blessings as they transition into these important roles next term.  We thank our outgoing Captains who have been generous with their time and led our community very well. 

Congratulations to our elected 2023 College Captains.

It was heartening to hear that so many of our senior students gave up their Friday night to join the Sleep Out for the Homeless at the College to raise awareness and funds for young people who are at risk or have become homeless. The Spirituality and Service Captains led a thought-provoking devotion and reflective activity that included students sharing the things for which they were grateful.  We thank our Spirituality and Service Captains and Ms Finter for their leadership and our senior students and staff for their support of this important event.

It was a delight on Saturday to join a strong contingent of supporters to cheer on the PLC Fireballs in their grand final at the Caloundra Netball Association.

There was a great deal of spirit at yesterday’s Year 3-6 Swimming Carnival held at Beerwah. Students enjoyed the opportunity to compete in their swimming carnival after it was postponed from the start of the year due to COVID. Well done to all students and congratulations to Mumba House who won the Spirit Award and to Wira House who were overall champions. We look forward to the Year 7-12 swimming carnival on Friday.  Thank you to Mr Darren Hooper, Mr Cameron West-McInnes and Mrs Lisa Muir for their organisation and leadership and staff and parents for their support.

Congratulations to the Junior Boys touch football team who convincingly won their grand final in the SCISSA competition last night. Well done to the boys who have continued to grow and develop over the season and thank you to coach Mr Scott Massie.

We thank all staff, students and parents for their contributions throughout this last term.  In a term filled with learning and opportunity, we have also enjoyed being able to return to gathering as a community and engage in a broader range of activities.

We say a prayer of thanks for all God has given us this term and pray that staff, students and parents are rejuvenated and refreshed through the change of rhythm that school holidays provide. May God bless us and keep us safe.

Living a Life of Service to Others

The major news headlines over the past week have been focused on the passing of Queen Elizabeth II. As a College, we have reflected on her legacy and what made her a much-loved and well-remembered person across the globe.

In this day and age, it is difficult to be so universally appreciated when you are in the spotlight so frequently. Inevitably, the majority of influential people are involved in some scandal or are cancelled because of a particular point of view or action that others don’t agree with. The Queen, seemingly, is one of the rare ones who has gone through most of her life as beloved by the majority.

One of the key themes that people have reflected on about her legacy is the fact that she ruled not over the people, but for the people. She was indeed a ruler who was in power to serve rather than be served like so many before her. Elizabeth adopted the same mentality as (and was highly influenced by) Jesus Christ. And that, I believe, is what made her so endearing throughout her reign as Queen.

Before she took the throne, Elizabeth made her intentions clear as to the type of leader she would be when she made the public statement: “I declare before you all that my whole life, whether it be long or short, shall be devoted to your service.” And throughout her tenure, she certainly lived her life in service to her people.

There is something about living a life of service to others. Our natural tendency is to look out for ourselves and make sure that we are looked after first. However, we are called to serve one another just as Christ served us.

Mark 10:45 states that “For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”

In Galations 5:13 we are told how we can look after each other also: “You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.” —Galatians 5:13, NIV

The Queen lived a Christ-like life of service and love for all, and in turn, became one of the most beloved rulers in the world – transforming the hearts of people within the Commonwealth for over 70 years.

So, as we reflect on the life of Queen Elizabeth, may we take from it what she stood for – service to others to make the world a better place.

Year 6 Canberra

Last week our Year 6 Cohort ventured down to our country’s capital to indulge themselves in the endless opportunities that Canberra has to offer. Students had the privilege of attending Parliament House, The Australian War Memorial, Government House, The Royal Australian Mint, Old Parliament House, CSIRO, The AIS and Questacon. Students were engaged, surprised, inspired, excited, educated, encouraged, and challenged as they threw themselves into the many wonderful experiences provided on this adventure.

A huge thank you to Mr Paul Brace for his organisation to make this trip possible. Thank you also to Mr Stuart Pohlner, Mr Scott Crompton, Ms Michelle Bourne, Mrs Melissa Ousley, Mrs Sharon Middleton, and Mr Mark Hauser for their attendance.

Middle College Chess Competition

The first Middle College Chess Competition ran over 3 lunchtimes last week with over 30 students entering the hotly contested tournament. Students ranged in age from 12 to 15 and played each other in a ‘speed’ type competition with games only lasting 5mins. It was a wonderful event that was supported by Mrs Jasmin Steven and the Academic Pacific Action Group and Year 9 Leaders. Congratulations to Lawson Willett for finishing runner-up and Kai Conrad who is our 2022 Middle College Chess Champion.

Sleepout Success

Last Friday evening, Senior Students across Years 10-12 were invited by the College’s 2022 Spirituality and Service Captains to attend a sleepout to raise awareness for the increasing number of young people on the Sunshine Coast who are either at risk or forced into homelessness.  Students donated money upon arrival to Integrated Youth Family Service’s Inclusive Kids. 

Students brought cardboard boxes and bedding for shelter and warmth.  For a Spring evening, the gymnasium was very chilly and simulated what it might be like for a young person on the Coast to experience living without shelter or a roof over their heads. 

The Spirituality and Service Captains led a devotion and reflective activity for students to engage in and then the students bunkered down for the evening.  It was a huge success for the 2022 student leaders and all the students who participated.

Year 12 BBQ Breakfast, Formal Dance and Graduation Song Filming

On Thursday 15th September, Year 12 students had a very welcomed opportunity to come together to celebrate the completion of their mock examinations and re-engage as a cohort before they commence their final journey of external examinations in Term 4. The BBQ Breakfast, hosted by the 2022 College Captains and Vice Captains was a nice way to come together, share their successes and learnings from their mock examinations, and discuss their excitement for the afternoon’s alternate program of Formal Dance practice and Graduation Song filming. 

Several Year 12 students were also involved in this evening’s Senior Ensemble, making it a day full of connection and celebration.

Reading for Pleasure: Inspiring Children to Read

Reading is not just something that children should do in school, it needs to be an everyday part of our lives and something we choose to do at all ages! Here’s why reading for pleasure is so important…Dr Seuss once said, “You can find magic wherever you look. Sit back and relax, all you need is a book.” Often children will read a book set at Primary school but are reluctant to pick up a book to read at home for pleasure.

There are plenty of benefits for those who enjoy curling up with a book. Research shows convincing evidence that reading for pleasure can increase empathy, improve relationships with others, reduce the symptoms of depression and improve wellbeing throughout life. Research has also shown that students who choose what and where they read tend to be more motivated, read more and show greater language and literacy development.

Reading for pleasure has also been positively linked with an increase in the following literacy-related benefits for children:

  • Reading attainment, phonics and writing ability
  • Text comprehension and grammar
  • Improved spelling
  • Breadth of vocabulary
  • Positive reading attitudes
  • Greater self-confidence as a reader
  • Pleasure reading in later life
  • Greater all-round academic success

The main thing to remember when helping your child find a book to read at home is to focus on their interests and passions. When children choose their own reading material, they tend to be more motivated, so it helps if they lead the process!

Enjoy reading at home these holidays.

Positive Parenting Tips for Dealing with a Challenging Teen

By getting to the root of the issues and teaching teens how to control their behaviour, fewer arguments between teens and parents will occur.

According to Open Sky Wilderness Therapy, teenagers who have consistent challenging behaviour have other emotions afoot that they are too scared, embarrassed, or may not even recognize. Some of those emotions, per the publication, include:

•          Feeling hurt

•          Feeling insecure

•          Being scared

•          Feeling powerless

•          Not feeling seen or heard

•          Feelings of anger

•          Feeling lonely

•          Feel like life is out of control

‘Buzby of the Buffalo’ Play

Thank you to everyone who supported our ‘Buzby of the Buffalo’ play on Monday. The Speech and Drama students put on a fabulous and funny performance and we’ve been receiving the most amazing feedback from those who attended.

It was wonderful to see all the older students taking the younger ones under their wings and making them feel so comfortable and part of something special. The leadership shown by students running rehearsals and taking the initiative to do the many jobs that were needed was just so impressive.

Our special guest Mrs Frances Wregg, the writer of the children’s book upon which the play is based, was smitten with the way the student actors brought her story to life. One of the photos below shows her with Tanika M. who played Mrs Wregg’s convict ancestor, Jean Wise.

We are so proud of all our students who participated. A big shout out to Jenny and Teena from Friends of Pacific and Costume Makers Sian and Melinda whose help we couldn’t have done without. Also, a heartfelt thank you to the generous donations from our audience members, we raised $408.70 for the Australian Marine Conservation Society!

Mrs Lisa McKibben and Mrs Imogen Joppich, Speech & Drama Teachers


Thank you to Year 1 students and their teachers for visiting the Year 10 Drama students to support their engagement in the Children’s Theatre unit of work. It is always optimal for students to perform for a live audience to stretch their skills of performance, and the Year 1 students certainly were a lively and engaged audience.

It was delightful to witness the interactions between the younger and older students, as they bonded through the experience of making and sharing drama. Thank you to the Year 10 students led by their teacher. Mrs Lisa Stevens, for engaging our younger students with the magic of storytelling through drama.

What’s Happening in the Library?

Year 5 Students Use Technology to Create Kindness Messages

In their library classes this year, Year 5 students read picture books about kindness and used these as inspiration to create their own kindness message. They then used the Keynote app to create a poster with their message, and then filmed themselves in front of a green screen saying their message. Using a green screen app, they imported their poster and video, then created and added an animation of flapping wings. Using the Eyejack app, they made an augmented reality layer and printed out a QR code to allow people to see their posters come to life.

Their posters are on display in the library and can be viewed by downloading the Eyejack app on your phone or borrowing a library iPad with the app installed.

eBooks and Reading over the Holidays

It’s very important to keep up the reading habit over the holidays. If you’re going away these holidays and don’t want to carry books around with you, why not try an eBook? We have an extensive eBook collection for students in Middle and Senior College. Just go to our eBook site and log in using your school email and student number. You can download as many eBooks as you like, and they will automatically return after two weeks.

All Schools’ Basketball

Well done to all our teams for their games on Friday.

Most teams had good wins (Intermediate C Boys; Junior C Girls; Junior D Boys; Intermediate B Boys; Intermediate A Girls and Intermediate F Boys). Despite losing their matches, it’s been good to see the Intermediate F Boys improving and only narrowly losing their games against GCC, and the Junior B Boys suffered their first loss of the season against a strong Coolum SHS team. The Junior E Boys and Intermediate C Girls also have been consistently improving and I appreciate their commitment each week.

Once again, thank you to those parents who continue to volunteer to score and to the coaches for giving up their time each week. Most teams have games this Friday (last Friday before the holidays) and all teams will be required to have enough players to fill a team. Please make sure you are all able to play. Games for this week are listed below. Games resume in week 1 of Term 4 for the final half of the season.

Finally – we wish the Open Boys team and Mr Burdon all the best for their CBSQ tournament at the end of the week. The boys are travelling to the Gold Coast for the State tournament on Thursday and play games until Sunday. We thank Mr Burdon for his expertise and dedication to getting the most out of the boys in the lead-up to the championships.

SCISSA Touch Football Results

Congratulations to our Junior Boys for winning their Grand Final last night against Sunshine Coast Grammar at Peregian Touch Fields. From the very start, our boys rucked hard and dominated field position. Some great finishing plays on the back of the rucking resulted in a strong 9-2 win. The team should be very proud of their efforts to finish off the season with this result. Thank you to Mr Massie for his fantastic work with the boys this season.

All School’s Water Polo

Our Intermediate Girls played their last game of the season on Monday night and competed well against a strong St John’s side. While the result didn’t go their way, the girls should be proud of their efforts this season, with many students being new to the game. They all seem ready to step up again next year and we look forward to helping them continue to grow their water polo skills. A big thank you to Coach Sam for his work with the team as their development across the season was evident.
