Joy in Serving in Ways Unseen

Every day we have opportunities to serve each other in ways unseen. In families and friendships, there are many times when small and large acts of service go unseen.  Parents are constantly serving their families in ways unseen. Within communities such as Pacific, the extra focus given by staff in their learning, planning or support of students and families, care of grounds, quality of administrative organisation and support are filled with moments of unseen service.  Our parents and students serve this community in many ways unseen as they support our weekend sports clubs, their children’s learning and involvement in activities, the Friends of Pacific, events and the support of each other.  Unseen service adds richness, colour, quality, opportunity, capacity and hope to people’s lives.

Love is at the heart of unseen service. It is given without the need for recognition or reward. Recognising that we serve out of love and care for people and the planet, creates space for joy to gently flow.  Jesus’s love for people was and remains constant as He served and serves in ways often unseen and not fully understood.  God’s love for people and joy flows through each of us as we serve in ways that are unseen and yet so life-changing. 

Principal's Log

Our Middle College Orientation Day was energising.  The joy of young people welcoming and being welcomed and experiencing new things together created a wonderful vibe throughout the day.  The information, activities and learning experiences offered by staff provided an insight into the quality and breadth of opportunity and experiences that await in the Middle College.  It was also great to be able to welcome parents new to the Middle College into community through the orientation evening on Tuesday night.  We thank our Heads of Middle College, Mr Brett Kersnovske and Mrs Jo Belchamber the Heads of House, Ms Megan Bancks, Mrs Leah Croke, Mr Josh Danzey and Mr Josh Cummins and Office Manager, Mrs Leanne Bevis for their leadership and organisation.  Thank you to our teachers for their creative and engaging planning for the day, and the many staff and students who played their part well in making the day such a success.  We also thank our families and students new to the Middle College for their very positive engagement with the day.

We wish our two Future Problem Solving teams of Emily Studiman, Oliver Friend, Isla Lendrum, Amy Richards Jax Bautista, Hunter Fullard, Aidan Kemp, Nathan Russell and Declan Bancks all the best as they travel to Melbourne to compete in the 2022 Future Problem Solving National Competition on the weekend.  We thank Mrs Belchamber and Mrs Linda Sydes for their leadership of these two teams.

We congratulate all of our debaters on a strong season as part of the Sunshine Coast schools Debating Competition.  Lucy Diamond, Ben McCormack, Amedy Buchanan and Abigail Tracey presented a strong case in their semi-final debate where they presented the affirmative side of “That governments should restrict free speech”.  Despite preparing a strong model for their case they were not able to win a high-quality debate on the evening.  We thank all our debaters and Mrs Rae Hall and Mrs Ceilidh King for their leadership of our debating teams this year.

We congratulate Senior College student Jessica Lloyd who represented Queensland and won a bronze medal in the Open Teams Competition and a Silver medal in the U 18 Women’s Division of the Archery Australia National Championship, held in Brisbane last weekend.  Jessica also won a Gold Medal in the 2022 U18 Women’s Indoor National Archery Competition.  We wish Jessica all the best as she now trains to be selected as part of the Australian team to compete in the Youth titles in Ireland next year.

We congratulate our kayakers for their good performance at the Marathon Canoeing Championships at Lake Coomera over the weekend.  Congratulations to all students and particularly medal winners Sophie Mack (Gold, 12 Years TK1 5KM), Abby Novosel (Gold, 14 Years TK1 5KM) Mya Boyall (Gold, 16 Years C1), Luka Stylianou (Silver, 14 Years K1 5KM), Catalina Stylianou (Silver, 16 Years K1 10KM) and Elke Madlener (Bronze, 16 Years K1 10KM).  We thank Mr Gary Graves for his leadership of the program and Jack Gothorp and Kristen Stylianou for their support on the day.  We wish our kayakers all the best as they prepare for the upcoming Sprint Titles at Lake Kawana.

May God give us joy as we serve together in ways seen and unseen.  May He also grant us the insight to see the many ways that God’s love flows to us through the love and generous service of people within our families, friends and community.

Giving in Secret

Serving others is something that I feel we focus on heavily at PLC. Service is an integral part of a Pacific education and is seen in many of the big things that we do throughout a calendar year. Events like the Red Shield Appeal, International Women’s Day and Father’s Day breakfasts, Disabled Surfers Association days and Orientation Day involvement are some of the most notable and publicly recognised ways that we can help others who are in need. And this is excellent! The PLC community shows their generosity and serves others in meaningful ways more and more every year. However, Jesus tells us that even more important are the deeds that are done in secret. True service to others (service from the heart) should come from the heart and there should be no thought of or need for recognition for what you do.

This concept is easy to understand, but how hard is it to do?

I often find myself doing things for others in secret, but deep-down questioning “why am I even doing this? No one will ever even know that I did it or that what I am doing is even being done”. Matthew 6:1-4 addresses this mentality by saying “They announce what they do in the synagogues and on the streets. They want to be honoured by other people. What I’m about to tell you is true. They have received their complete reward”. Jesus addresses this need for recognition and challenges the intentions (the heart) of why we serve. True service to others should not need any reward, whether it be recognition, acceptance or even a change in someone. We serve because Christ served us.

I am sure that there are plenty of people who have influenced me in deep ways that I am never going to realise. But God see’s it…. And that’s all the reward and recognition that we should need.

Middle College - Orientation Day

Tuesday this week saw 65 new students arrive on the campus for their orientation into PLC Middle College. Joining them were our current Year 5 and 6 students. What a wonderful day of integration, connection and celebration. The energy and enthusiasm from parents, students and staff were infectious as the sun shone on what proved to be a wonderful initiation into everything that is Pacific Lutheran College.

Students were given a physical tour of the grounds as well as a taste of many different aspects of schooling in Years 6-9. It truly was an uplifting day for both staff and students followed by an information evening for parents to begin to understand what makes a student at PLC in Middle College flourish.

A big thank you to Mrs Leanne Bevis for her tireless work behind the scenes in organizing this event. We wish all students and families a safe, calm transition into Middle College in 2023 and look forward to seeing them contribute to our College.

Preparing You and Your Child for a Wonderful Year in Prep

The start of the Prep year can not only be daunting for children, but for their parents too. For parents, there are healthy lunchboxes to plan, car park drop-offs to coordinate, uniforms to organise and stationery orders to process.

Many parents may worry: Will their child make friends? Will they grasp the knack of reading? And even, will they stay awake for the entire school day?

At Pacific – where there are three Prep classes, each with a teacher and teacher-aide – parents are reminded that the Prep teachers “have got this”. We want parents to feel completely confident in our ability to handle their child’s big feelings.

Our teachers make our new Preppies feel comfortable and show them how to make new friends. We have a whole bag of tricks to help create a sense of family and unity from day one. Prep is so much fun! Parents can trust that we will support their child to manage all their emotions, from exhilaration to excitement, and even a little nervousness. By morning tea on the first day, it is smiles galore and we love to see each of our students embracing the adventure of learning.

The primary focus of Term One in Prep at Pacific is building relationships, establishing values of kindness and respect, and developing core early literacy and numeracy skills. This conscientious approach ensures that each child is known and appreciated as a whole person who is very important to the Pacific family.

Some things to consider:

•          Believe that your children will make the transition well and build their excitement about starting Prep, rather than focusing on their concerns.

•          Read, read, read and then read some more. A rich vocabulary is the best advantage in starting school.

•          Ask lots of “why’” questions as this helps prepare them to think, justify and to consider alternatives; use play as the basis for these questions.

•          Assist with building your child’s organisation and independence. They are so very capable and simply require the encouragement, support and belief in them that they can carry their own bag, unpack their lunch and change their shoes.

Prep is a wonderful year! It is full of fun, friends, warmth and connections, as well as an incredible amount of learning. Children are encouraged to thrive and embrace every opportunity to be independent and grow.  You will be amazed at the leaps and bounds they take in their learning and social skills over the year. We encourage families to enjoy this exciting time. It flies!

Future Problem Solving National Competition

On Friday 14th, nine Pacific students will travel to Melbourne for the weekend to participate in the 2022 Future Problem Solving National Competition.

Emily Studiman (Year 9), Oliver Friend (Year 8), Isla Lendrum (Year 8) and Amy Richards (Year 7), will be competing in the Global Issues Problem Solving section of the competition. Students will be presented with a scenario on the topic of ‘Mining’ and will be required to respond by completing a booklet, identifying the problems, selecting the underlying problem, preparing 16 solutions, and developing an action plan to address the possible future global issue. Students are then required to develop and present a short skit which displays and promotes their action plan to a live audience.

Year 7, Pacific Plus Students, Jax Bautista, Hunter Fullard, Aidan Kemp, Nathan Russell and Declan Bancks will be competing in the Community Problem Solving section of the competition. The students have prepared and submitted their competition entry on a perceived problem which they have identified within the community - student computer gamers who are exposed to too much blue light. Students have built a website and designed a brochure which they will present at a community problem-solving fair. A part of the presentation of their community problem solving project also includes an interview in front of a panel of judges.

It is a great achievement to be invited to compete at the National Future Problem Solving Competition. We are extremely proud of the students’ achievements so far. We wish our students well as they prepare to participate in this challenging but fun learning experience.

Music News

Music has started back with a bang with 5 Senior students attending the State Honours Ensemble Programme in conjunction with Griffith University during the last weekend of the school holidays. Hayley K, Ruby C, Jack S, Brooke W and Dexter W all spent 4 days rehearsing and working with industry professionals in their specific ensembles. The weekend culminated in a showcase concert for each ensemble in the iconic concert hall at the Brisbane Conservatorium of Music. Congratulations to all.

Term 4 is certainly shaping up to be a busy one with the PLC Soiree, Grandparents Day, End of Year concerts, Carols and farewelling our Year 12 Music students. So, keep an eye out for information on all of the upcoming events.

Looking forward to 2023, if your child is currently enrolled in a private instrumental lesson these will automatically roll over into 2023, so there is no need to submit a new enrolment form. However, if you would like to change anything for 2023, then please get in touch at (

Food for Thought

SPECIAL REPORT: Year 12 Exam Stress

Supporting your teenager through their final school exams can be extremely daunting for parents. However, maintaining a calm household will ensure your child has the best chance of success.

To perform at their best, students will need regular and adequate sleep, a healthy diet, daily exercise and regular reassurance from parents that their success in life does not depend on their final mark. Many students will experience high levels of anxiety during this time, so it is important that their mental health is looked after as well as their physical health.

Students should do plenty of practice exams, focusing on questions they don’t understand and always getting feedback from teachers. Parents should try not to worry if they feel their child isn’t studying enough. Sometimes students need to experience the consequences of their choices as they do not have the maturity to associate effort with the outcome. Getting a bad mark will not be the end of the world, but more of an inconvenience.

Dancing Queen

Last week, Ava competed in the National Championships gaining the title of National Champion in a couple of titles. Ava also competed in a section called Champion of Champions, which is where she competed against 30 of the top dancers across Australia (including some very strong talent from Sydney) for the main Australian Champion of Champions title.

After being selected in the top 20, then the top 10, then the top 5, Ava was invited to the Gala event (similar to a Grand final) to perform once more against 4 of the strongest dancers in her age group (with some dancers already being 9 years of age whilst Ava is still 8).

She performed beautifully and came Runner-up Champion of Champions, winning herself a trip to America to dance next year as a part of Team Australia in the USA Titles. Only the Champions and Runner-up Champions receive this invitation.

Ava’s hard work and dedication to her dancing commitments are highly commendable and an inspiration to others. Congratulations!

Our first week back was a bit of a rough one for our teams. We had a lot of very narrow losses, but the four teams that won, won by large margins. Well done to our Junior C, Intermediate C and Intermediate A Girls, as well as our Intermediate B Boys on big wins. The Intermediate C Girls were great to watch and led from the very start in their first win of the season!!

The team of the week has to be the Junior E Boys who played one of their best games of the season. Despite the loss, they fought hard to the end and are showing great signs of improvement. I can’t wait to see them perform next week.

Our Intermediate B Boys have their game on Tuesday afternoon at Suncoast this week, before they head off to the State School’s Championships on the Gold Coast at the end of the week. We wish the boys all the very best. They have had a great lead-up to the tournament with an undefeated season so far. Thank you to Mr Burdon for all his work with the boys.

SCISSA Rugby 7’s

Our first round of competition in the SCISSA 7’s tournament was incredibly successful. Our U14 Boys started strong winning games against both Sunshine Coast Grammar and Glass House Christian College in their opening round, while narrowly being outplayed by Matthew Flinders Anglican College. Our U16 Boys played with a lot of heart against some very talented opposition, with the majority of their players away on the Year 9 camp.

Our U16 Girls, with their numbers also down due to the Year 9 camp, played exceptionally well against Sunshine Coast Grammar 1sts and 2nds and St Andrews 1sts and 3rds, posting wins against all these teams. Please find the summary of scores below:

Cooper was also one of the referees who officiated the U12 State School Boy Championships as well as the Justin Hodges School Boy Gala Day. Well done, Cooper!

Well done also to Katalina and Luka Stylianou for their high-level officiating responsibilities in football and futsal.
