Ash Wednesday A Reminder of God’s Grace For Us

As we have celebrated Ash Wednesday this week at Chapel, our focus has been on God’s grace for us.  The ashes traditionally made from the palms used in the Palm Sunday service the week before, remind us of our mortality and our propensity to sin against God and other people. The ashes remind us of our earthiness and dependence on God for forgiveness. Most importantly they remind us of the great hope we have through God’s grace.

Ashes are placed on people in the shape of a cross. The cross points us to Easter and the strong hope we have through Jesus’s death and resurrection. The cross is a strong reminder of God’s unconditional love for us and His promise to forgive us. There is a freedom that comes from letting go of the striving that comes through our daily lives and to simply sit before God humbly as part of his creation. We are renewed as we turn to God and ask for forgiveness and begin each moment anew freed by His grace and strengthened by His love.

Principal’s Log

This week on assembly we launched the Beyond Pacific program. This innovative program aims to support young people to reflect and record their growth across the four dimensions of character, community, leadership and future focus. Developed last year by some of our 2022 Senior Leaders and Mrs Wanda Hayes, Head of Career Development at Pacific, in collaboration with employer representatives, this program will provide evidence for students as they apply for university and employment scholarships. The College will recognise students who progress through the Bronze, Silver and Gold phases of the award but its greatest benefit will be the growth that students take with them beyond Pacific into the next phase of their lives. We are excited about this program which supports young students to grow as people and in their employability skills.  We thank Mrs Hayes, Ms Sue Arahill, Mrs Jo Belchamber, Mrs Rachel Curtis, Mrs Colleen Beattie, our 2022 student leaders Sebastian and Charles Box, Makani Campbell and Amie Hague, and employer representatives Mr Richard Studiman and Ms Veronica San Marco who have developed the program and will continue to lead it this year. As an innovative program that supports rich growth of employability skills, Beyond Pacific has already attracted interest from a national level.

At the Friends of Pacific Annual General Meeting, we thanked our outgoing Executive members who have given great service to the community through the changing times of 2022, leading and supporting a variety of events including our Mother’s and Father’s Day Stalls, Open Day, Gala Days, Carols and Pacific’s 21st Birthday Soiree. In particular, we thanked the outgoing Chair, Mrs Jenny Lee who has been very generous with her time and very capably led the Friends of Pacific since 2017.  Jenny has led with professionalism, care and creativity to bring people together and support very high-quality community experiences.  It is a credit to Jenny and her executive team that the Friends of Pacific play such an important role in providing high-quality experiences and opportunities for people to connect to community.  We thank our outgoing committee - Chairperson, Jenny Lee, Vice Chair, Allyson Sarvari, Secretary, Jane Hill, and Treasurer, Louise Walker and welcome our new FoP Committee – Chairperson Carly Lovell, Vice Chair, Jan Watman, Secretary Ange Mack, Treasurer Louise Walker, Foundation Executive – Victoria Campbell, Junior College Executive - Renae Costa, Middle College Executives - Lisa Davis and Amber Childs, Senior College Executives - Tracey Hindmarsh and Jenny Lee and Alumni Executive - Allyson Sarvari.

We thank the many Middle and Senior College students and staff who supported the Disabled Surfers over the weekend. The support of students and staff enabled people to experience the joy and wonders of surfing, some for the first time. This is a very special experience where everyone who participates gains a great deal. We thank Mrs Linda Sydes for her leadership and the many staff and students who supported this event.

Well done to all our swimmers who competed with great spirit at the recent Independent District Carnivals. There were many individual swimmers who performed extremely well, and we particularly congratulate Alex Monroe, Year 12, who broke the 18 Years 50m Breaststroke record. We wish all the swimmers who now represent the Independent District at the regional competition all the best. We thank our swimmers, their parents and Mr Darren Hooper, Mr Cameron West McInnes, Mrs Lisa Muir and staff for their support and leadership across the two days of competition.

We give thanks to God for the many people who give generously to our community.

2023 Ecumenical Service

Last week, I was fortunate to take a small group of our Year 9 Leaders to participate in the 2023 Sunshine Coast Ecumenical Service which is open to leaders across all the independent schools in the area. It was a valuable experience for the leaders as they formed connections with other school leaders their age and were able to worship together to start the school year.

As a part of the program, guest speakers shared their experiences as leaders and explained the significance that our words can have on others (both positively and negatively). This message is important for us as a Pacific community to understand, as our words can make a great impact in all that we do. Our interactions with one another have the power to positively shape the culture and feel of a community.

A strong focus for the students at Pacific this year has been centred around our core values of “Care, Dignity and Respect”. These values fit perfectly with what the speakers were talking about in relation to thriving school communities. When we approach each other with care, dignity and respect, our words are reflective of our values and what is important to us.

The Year 9 Leaders were all inspired by the service and the messages that were delivered, and hope to affect change in their roles this year.

Year 6 Leaders

This week, we celebrated the appointment of our newly elected Year 6 Student Leaders. Each Action Group leader was presented with their leadership badge at the installation service. They heard a great message from the Year 9 Leaders who promised to help the Year 6 group in their roles and to give them guidance and support throughout the year. The Year 6 Leaders are highly enthusiastic, and motivated and have already approached their positions with great energy. We wish them all the very best in their roles throughout the year, and I look forward to helping them grow in their capacity and influence in the College.

Academic Learning

As we approach the midway point of the term, it is important for students and parents to be aware of any upcoming assessments that students may have. This year, we have had a greater focus on the organisation of assessment dates in student handbooks and parent access to this information also, on NAV.

Students in Pastoral Care Groups are also working on helping each other with their organisation and preparation for assessment periods through their mentoring and review of planners.

This can be a stressful time for students, but with prior preparation and a consistent approach to learning both at school and at home, students can put themselves in the best possible position for success. Personal Development lessons in the Middle College have also begun focusing on strategies to help with assessment, and now is a great time for parents and students to start getting serious about study and revision planners so that assignments and tests are more manageable and stress-free.

We wish all students all the very best in all aspects of their schooling throughout the rest of the term.

The Importance of Home Learning in P-5

Home learning across P-5 is important because it is the intersection between home and school.  As children grow older, home learning and the amount of time engaged in home learning increase in importance.

Here are five constructive purposes for home learning in the context of your child’s educational journey. The first two are the most important and obvious. Through (1) practice and (2) participation in learning tasks, home learning can improve your child’s achievement. It would be expected that if home learning were completed accurately, not only would your child’s general knowledge and marks improve but your child would also increase mastery of basic academic skills, such as reading, writing, spelling and mathematics.

Home learning can provide other benefits. Your child’s ability to bring an assignment task home, gather and organise necessary materials to complete the assignment, return the assignment and receive a grade, strengthens his or her sense of responsibility. Time management skills are learned. There is also improved (3) development of personal skills such as time management gained by completing home learning. Further, when home learning proceeds smoothly it can become (4) a positive aspect of your relationship with your child. Finally, it offers schools an opportunity to let parents know what their children are learning and so can play an important role by (5) keeping parents informed about class activities and policies.

Home learning is a bridge that joins schools and parents. From the school’s perspective, there is the opportunity to monitor students’ independent progress. For parents, there is the potential to gain a greater appreciation of education and to express positive attitudes towards their children’s achievements.

Regardless of the amount of home learning assigned, many students unsuccessful or struggling in school spend less rather than more time engaged in home learning. It is not surprising that students spending less time completing home learning may eventually not achieve as consistently as those who complete their home learning tasks.

 Home Learning is important as one of several influential factors in school success. Some tips:

•          Schedule a regular home learning time. Allow for a relaxation break after school, but do not let children leave home learning until just before bedtime when they are likely to be tired, grouchy, and unable to concentrate.

•          Help younger school students set a schedule. Older students can set their own schedules, but make sure these are workable.

•          Allow time for sports or other activities, balance is important.

•          Provide a home learning area that has good lighting, is comfortable, and is fairly quiet. If possible, supply a desk or worktable.

•          Eliminate distractions by making the telephone, television, video games etc. off limits.

Ready to go Beyond Pacific! (Years 10-12)

At this week’s Senior College Assembly, a new program was launched for our students. The program is called Beyond Pacific and is available to all Senior College students. Beyond Pacific is designed to help students make connections between the voluntary co-curricular activities they participate in while at school and their development of skills and capabilities that will help them win jobs and scholarships in the future.

Students who can demonstrate they consistently support PLC’s values and standards, and who have completed their personal and academic goals in Track One for this year are eligible to participate in Beyond Pacific. They can then complete a brief reflection on each of their co-curricular activities to claim Beyond Pacific points, and accumulate points to become eligible to apply for a Beyond Pacific Award. The Awards program prompts students to identify transferable employability skills they have developed through their co-curricular activities.

Details of the program are available on the Beyond Pacific group page on NAV. If you have any questions about Beyond Pacific, please feel free to give me a call or send me an email.

Emotional Regulation Workshop for Girls

Goodlife Community Centre in Buderim will be facilitating a workshop for girls aged 9-12 years to educate, inspire and empower them to build their skills.

This workshop will help your Tween navigate obstacles more effectively and handle her emotions better! During this workshop, we will explore the emotions your daughter feels and help her to understand why she feels them. We will discuss the range of challenges and obstacles she faces that bring these emotions to the surface while highlighting that dealing with situations while emotional never works out well. She will be taught a step-by-step process to manage these situations better, without all the intense pre-adolescent emotion.

Australian Virtual Astronaut Challenge

We are excited to announce that our school is participating in the Australian Virtual Astronaut (AVA) Challenge, which is a unique STEM design sprint based on challenges facing NASA's Artemis and the Australian space industry. The challenge will require students to use their knowledge of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) to design innovative solutions to real-world problems.

The AVA Challenge involves a nine-step design sprint that requires teams to choose from five different scenarios, including Earth Observation, Robotics, Home on the Moon, Growing Food in Space, and A.I. in Space. Each team will need to design a solution that addresses the challenges presented in the scenario they choose. The solutions will be presented in the form of either a 90-second video pitch or a poster.

The scenarios in the AVA Challenge have been provided by esteemed organizations such as The University of Arizona, the Australian Space Agency, the Aldrin Family Foundation, and This provides students with a unique opportunity to work on real-world problems and come up with creative solutions that could help advance our understanding of space and the technologies required to explore it.

We encourage all students to participate in this exciting challenge, as it will provide a great opportunity for them to use their STEM skills and showcase their creativity. We hope that this challenge will inspire students to pursue careers in STEM-related fields and become the next generation of space explorers.

Thank you for your continued support of our school's STEM program.  If you are interested in this challenge, please let Mr Warner ( know asap.
