It Is In Giving, That We Receive

Another great line in the prayer of St Francis of Assisi is “It is in Giving, That We Receive”.  Wellbeing research often reflects on the importance of living for a purpose beyond ourselves.  The importance of giving is part of the age-old wisdom of the Bible where in Proverbs we find a number of references to giving, including the encouragement to live generously.  Each of us is aware of the feelings of joy or satisfaction that come from having given to someone else. Research has shown that our brains activate reward systems when we are involved in giving. We are wired for generosity. Letting go of oneself and focusing on the needs of others, provides tremendous freedom and space to act.  Even thinking about doing something kind for others gets our minds into a different space.  Our bodies relax and a smile can even sneak onto our faces.

God encourages us to give freely without the need for recognition or reward, to give out of love for people and all of His creation.  In doing this, we recognise that all we have comes from a gracious God who has given generously to us. As we give, we are part of the flow of God’s blessing into the world. As we respond with generosity, lives change and there is a flow of joy, possibility and hope.

Principal’s Log

This week Middle and Senior College students and their families have embraced the opportunity to contribute to the Salvation Army Christmas Appeal.  In this small and simple way, we can make a difference to the lives of many families in our local area.  Families who still wish to contribute can do so through the pastoral care group until Wednesday of next week.

It was a delight to watch our Middle and Senior College Rugby 7s teams, U13 Boys, U13 Girls, U14 Boys, U16 Boys and U16 Girls compete in the finals of the SCISSA competition on Wednesday night.  The U13 Girls, U14 Boys and U16 Girls teams reached the Division 1 grand finals and played with good intensity and skill.  All three ended up being runners-up and they can be proud of the way they played last night and the progress they have made this season.  We thank parents for their support and our coaches Mr Andrew Block, Mr Cameron West McInnes, Mr Darren Hooper, Mr Joshua Danzey and Head of Rugby Mr Josh Cummins for their support of the growth of rugby within the College.

We congratulate the Junior C Girls, Intermediate A Girls and Intermediate B Boys teams for reaching the grand finals of the Sunshine Coast Secondary Schools Basketball competition.  We wish them well for their games on Friday night at the Caloundra Stadium and encourage members of the community to come and support them.

As our Year 10 and Middle College students prepare for exams over the coming week, we encourage them to maintain routines that provide a progressive review and consolidation of learnings, including the use of summaries and mind maps to build connections.  We wish students calm minds as they prepare for and undertake assessments in the coming week.  Every small step of revision and preparation makes a difference and enhances skills for the future.

We say a prayer of thanks for God’s generosity to us and pray that we might respond with generosity to the needs of others.

Giving in Secret

Christmas is just around the corner. Stores and shops have been focusing more and more on the festive season and enticing consumers to start buying their goods in preparation for Christmas. We are nearly at the end of another year which means Christmas-themed classrooms and activities will start to dominate students’ minds. The P-5 Carols Service is only two weeks away as well!

Christmas is a busy, but magical time for many of us. It is easy to get caught up in the festivities, gifts and merriment and forget about those who might be doing it a little tougher. Christmas for most is a great time and something to look forward to, but it’s not the same for everyone at this time of year.

At PLC, we try to get students to think about others more than themselves by providing opportunities for them to engage in activities that serve outside of their normal comfort zone. This term, there has been a chance for students and families to donate to the Salvation Army Christmas Appeal, by bringing in Christmas gifts (toys, presents and pantry items) to chapel this week, which will be donated to those who are in most need during this time. The response from the PLC community always delights me and this term was no different. These gifts and offerings will be greatly appreciated by those in the community who will value them more than we realise.

Take for example this response in relation to a previous donation to the Salvation Army: “A PLC family donated a yoga mat and the Salvos said that the person who received this mat was so excited by this gift that they were going to have the most comfortable sleep in a very long time!”

It is far too easy to get caught up in what we want and forget about the needs of others who might be struggling. I know that I suffer from this – far more than I care to admit.

In the book of Matthew, Jesus tells us that it is better to give in secret and not to boast about our acts of service. This is counter-intuitive to our human nature but is exactly what we hoped to achieve in our giving of these Christmas Appeal gifts. God has blessed us with so much and to be able to help others without them even knowing who donated is a reflection of the Christ-like attitude that we bring to each other.

We thank all the families who supported this outreach, and pray that you all have a blessed Christmas, all the while thinking of others! You just never know whose life you will touch, with even just a small gesture of giving.

Building Reading Stamina

What do teachers mean when they talk about building your child’s writing and reading stamina?

In your child’s academic report, building reading and writing stamina are often referenced as the next steps to improve achievement in English, and as a result, their achievement in all other subject areas. For example, if you can increase the amount of time you can concentrate and read, you are more likely to absorb more information and strengthen your vocabulary. If you can sit for sustained periods and write, you are more likely to improve your transcription and flow of ideas.

Why do we need to build stamina?

Research tells us that students who can read for 20 minutes each day are exposed to almost 2 million words. In contrast, a child who reads for only 5 minutes per day is exposed to 280,000 words. Reading stamina is having the energy and the concentration to focus on reading for at least 30 continuous minutes a day.

For students who lack stamina, reading is a frustrating and unpleasant experience, so they tend to read as little as possible. However, today, reading is a life skill needed for future success, as well as for the joy that a personal reading life brings.

What does this look like in the classroom?

In class, students engage in silent reading to build their stamina where they learn the behaviours and habits of independent readers.

How can we support our children at home to build stamina in reading?

Developing reading stamina is like training to run a mile in less than 8 minutes. Both require regular practice to increase energy and concentration (Robb, L, 2016).

Here are some ways you can support children at home.

•          Make reading an activity to get excited about, not a chore

•          Go to the library and choose books your child is interested in

•          Brainstorm together what focused reading looks like and turn it into a visual

•          Set the timer for 5 minutes and gradually build up

•          Celebrate successes towards goals

•          Ask your child questions about what they have read and get curious

•          Create a quiet environment for reading to minimise distractions

•          Learn alongside them

Fuse Cup e-Sports

Last Wednesday, 2nd November, 8 students from Years 7 to 9 represented the College in the final Fuse Cup e-sports competition for 2023.

The boys, Jack Shirley, Kye Feeney, Brian Iredia, Cody Maio, Fraser Duffy, Aiden Kearney Saxon Locke and Kaelyn Cleaves worked extremely hard on the day to achieve their very best result. The boys have been training over the last few weeks and honing their abilities in the higher skills of obstacle avoidance, sliding and manoeuvring while driving at high speed.

The morning was exciting and resulted in a playoff for a tied place in the Grand Final. Unfortunately, we missed the top prize but we were delighted to take second place. A great time was had by all.

Congratulations team. A fabulous result for the first time in the competition.

The Duke of Edinburgh Award

The Duke of Edinburgh Award is a leading youth development program for young people aged 14-24 years. The program aims to empower all young Australians to explore their full potential and find their purpose, passion and place in the world, regardless of their location or circumstance. It’s the largest structured youth development program in Australia, adopted in more than 130 countries.

To achieve the Award, each young person must learn a skill, improve their physical wellbeing, volunteer in their community and experience a team adventure in a new environment. There are 3 levels - Bronze, Silver and Gold, each progressively more challenging.

Alex, Year 11, has recently completed his Silver level after sailing on the South Passage up the East Coast of Queensland from Manly to Urangan over 5 days. “The 4.00am starts were hard, but I was with a great team of students from other colleges, and we learnt everything there is to know about sailing, including knots, navigation and steering. We had lots of laughs and were able to explore the Great Sandy Strait, as well as Moreton and K’gari Islands. I’ll shortly be commencing my Gold level and hope to do a residential project as well.” shared Alex

Alex recommends the program to anyone looking to learn new skills, have fun and meet new people.

The Duke of Edinburg Award offers adventures and activities to develop community-mindedness, perseverance, communication, problem-solving, showing initiative and the ability to work independently and as part of a team.

If you are interested in learning more about this award for possible application next year, please contact Mrs Lisa Muir (

Congratulations to our Intermediate A Girls, Intermediate B Boys and Junior C Girls for dominant wins in their semi-final matches last week. They are all through to the Grand Final on Friday!

The Intermediate F Boys put a huge effort in to their match and almost won their game as well. They had a great comeback and were within 2 points right at the end of the game. Unfortunately, they came up short of the win. Well done to the whole team and to their coach, Nick Masson for his great work with the boys. There was quite a good support crew there as well. A big thank you to all for their commitment to their team and for representing themselves and the College so well.

The Junior C Girls had a comfortable 64-18 win which looked easy, but it was only because the girls executed their game plan to perfection in one of their best games of the season. It was a great team performance. Well done girls. Eva Carey was our top scorer, Isla Lendrum and Tana Ajex were our top passers and Mya Masson was sensational at shooting! Ruby O’Neill and Summer Naumann were tenacious defenders. Well done to all.

Our Intermediate A Girls are our only “A division” team in the competition this year. After finishing the season with only 1 loss, they came up against 3rd-placed SAAC. The girls had a great first quarter and looked like they were going to cruise to victory. However, some issues in offence let the opposition in and made it a close game. However, thanks to some great free throw shooting late in the game by Jazlyn Miller, some awesome 1 on 1 defence by Jess Watkins and a gritty non-stop effort from Laayla McAuliffe along with the rest of the team, they managed to secure a 30-24 victory. The girls will have to be near-perfect in order to defeat their MFAC opponents in the Grand Final, but with the addition of some players coming back from injury, a victory is certainly a possibility. This final will be a great battle. Well done to coach Brooklyn Graves for her work with the girls and expert coaching.

Intermediate B Boys got off to a strong start in a physical game and managed to hold their nerve when SAAC came back strongly to get within 4 points in the second quarter. However, some great team defence and unselfish and aggressive offence at the start of the third quarter sealed the game early for the boys. They held the opposition to only 4 points in the 4th and managed to win the game 46-21! In order to get the win again Suncoast in their Grand Final, the boys will have to maintain their defensive intensity, attack the basket consistently, play smart and be able to keep their turnovers in the full court down. If they can do this, they should walk away with Gold! Well done to Mr Brad Burdon for his work with the team all season. Too many great performances to name players individually – a great team effort!

It would be wonderful to get as many spectators to our Grand Finals games as we can get (see times below). If you are able to attend, it would be great to have everyone in their PLC uniforms for this. Please remember that you are still on display representing the College, so all must be positive toward our team, opposition, referees and spectators. Let’s all enjoy a great night of finals basketball together without incident.

All the best to our three remaining teams and their coaches.

Grand Finals Game Times:

4.00pm – Junior C Girls @ Caloundra (Crt 3) v Siena

7.00pm – Int A Girls @ Caloundra (Crt 2) v MFAC

SCISSA Rugby 7’s

Congratulations to all our players and coaches on a competitive and successful end of the season for Rugby 7s. There was so much to celebrate from last night’s fixtures, and I would like to express my sincerest thanks for the heart, sportsmanship and commitment demonstrated by all our Pacific players, coaches and supporters last night. Congratulations to our U13 girls, U14 boys and U16 girls who all progressed to the Division 1 grand final last night. This is the first time we have had a team in the Rugby 7s Division 1 final in Pacific history, and to have 3 in the same year is incredible. While our teams weren’t able to clinch the top spot, they should all feel proud of the resilience and determination that they showed on the field and know that they represented Pacific exceptionally. Our U13 and U16 boys, unfortunately, got knocked out in the semi-finals, but again should be proud of how they represented the College across their season. Thanks again for another successful year in Rugby, and I look forward to continuing to grow our program and providing more exciting opportunities for players to get involved next year.


Our PLC Tennis teams completed their last round of fixtures before finals on Wednesday afternoon. There have been some great individual performances within our teams, and a special mention needs to go to Isabella Welsh for taking out her singles game in Team 1 and Emanuel Espinosa for his win in Team 2. A big thank you to our students and coaches for their commitment to playing in SCISSA Tennis this term, and we look forward to more great tennis in 2023.

Ballinger Hockey Cup

Well done to our Year 7-9 players who competed in the recent Ballinger Cup Hockey tournament. This was the first time we have had a representative PLC Hockey team and all players represented the College exceptionally well. They had some tough games in their division throughout the day but still managed to play themselves into the 3rd vs 4th match. The students participated with great energy and we look forward to more opportunities for our hockey students in the future. A big thank you to Mr Brett Kersnovske for his time and energy in leading the team.  

Representative Sport 2023

A draft schedule for trial dates has been put up on the SCISSA website for students and parents interested in district and regional sport trials in 2023.
