Building on Solid Foundations

Lives like houses, need to be built on solid foundations.  We can spend a lot of time building our superstructures focused on success in work, learning, sport or other pursuits and forget to pay attention to what is at our core and foundation. Success is important and brings us pleasure and a sense of accomplishment, but this can be short-lived as we often quickly move to the next challenge. There will also always be times when we are not as outwardly successful as we would hope. Building our lives on success is like building our houses on shifting sand. When the fast-moving waters of life come rushing at us, we need a strong foundation to hold us firm. Strong relationships with family and friends, living with purpose and being strong in our sense of self and our core values can help to hold us firmer in more challenging times.

The strongest rock of all on which to build is God’s unconditional love for each one of us. The good news is that God comes to us as the builder.  We can rest in His presence. When we rest and listen to or read His word, He is building a foundation that cannot be washed away. This foundation enables us to wisely choose the other big rocks to place and build on our foundation. In this period of Lent, our focus on the forgiveness and renewal that Jesus’ death and resurrection brings into our lives provides an everlasting and unshifting rock of hope on which all others can be built.

Principal’s Log

Many students across the College are preparing for assessments including internal testing, and completion of assignments and for our Year 3, 5, 7 and 9 students their Naplan assessment. As our Middle and Senior College students prepare for internal assessment, it is important that they prepare progressively for these assessments by employing the strategies provided to them by their teachers, the Elevate group and through Personal Development. As they engage in these practices, they are building long-term rocks, learning about what works best for them in terms of planning, organisation, problem solving and critical thinking and learning to regulate emotional responses. For all ages, taking a long-term learning approach to all assessments, rather than a focus on judgement helps young people build capability. Learning that every small step makes a difference builds skills to attack and persevere in a range of contexts within and beyond school. Seeing assessment as an important checkpoint that enables us to understand what we know, understand and can do now and what we are yet to learn helps learners build capacity through feedback received.

We congratulate Lucy Dimond and Ben McCormac on their very strong performances in the Lions Youth of the Year at the Caloundra Branch. After submitting a detailed application form that captured their academic achievements, community involvement and future goals and participating in an interview, each of them then delivered two impromptu speeches and a prepared speech.  They very capably presented their five-minute impromptu speeches about “How would you define a successful human?” and “Influencer or Role Model: Which is the Winner?”. Lucy won the Public Speaking component of the contest and Ben was the overall Youth of the Year winner. We congratulate both Ben and Lucy and wish Ben all the best as he now progresses to the District competition this weekend.  We thank the Head of English, Mrs Rae Hall for her support of these students.

Over the past 3 days, our Year 1 students, in their respective classes, ventured to Buderim Forest Park where they took part in their first Outdoor Learning Day at Pacific. At Pacific, we value the opportunity to engage in learning while immersed in natural environments. Through nature play, students can learn about themselves, develop skills to work with others and develop environmental awareness. Students supported each other to explore the natural environment to build a shelter using tree branches, participated in a scavenger hunt, hiked to the Buderim Forest Waterfall via a boardwalk and jumped across the river rocks. Students were able to swim under the waterfall once they arrived. Students also spent time drawing and describing what they saw, heard and how they felt in their journals as a reminder of their first Outdoor Learning Day at Pacific. Thank you to Mr Paul Brace, for leading the way in Outdoor Education for our students, our Year 1 teachers, Mrs Sharon Hooper, Mrs Lara Stiller, Mrs Leonie Prout and support staff, Miss Georgie Snelling and Mr Rob Belchamber for supporting the students on their first Outdoor Pacific adventure.

We are getting ready to launch OCEANFest this year. We are excited to share our theme of “One World” for this year’s event. To support our Friends of Pacific, our communications team of Ms Samantha Barrass, Mrs Simone Shaw and Mrs Crystal Ceccarelli will coordinate the major organisational aspects of the event. Parent, teacher and student volunteers will be needed to run a range of activities in the lead-up to and on the evening of the Festival itself. We would encourage as many parents as possible to join in the preparations for this event as outlined in the Friends of Pacific article later in this newsletter. Through volunteering, parents can form strong friendships and connections to the College as they provide an important service to our community.

We pray that God would enable us all to build on the solid foundation of His love for us.

Pews News

This week we explore the Thread: Planning and decision-making, with focus on Luke 6:46-49. This Bible passage emphasises the importance of building a strong foundation in Christ.

The video also provides an update on last week’s Ash Wednesday Chapels. Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of the season of Lent and is a time for Christians to reflect on their faith and mortality.

Additionally, the update announces the return of the youth group later this term, with monthly gatherings starting in Term 2. Keep an eye out for your emails with dates to come soon.

Senior College Connections

House Chapels Create Strong Foundations for Community Connections

This week’s Bible thread focuses on the positive values of equality, social justice and integrity. It was wonderful to see the Year 12 House Captains and Vice Captains, supported by the Year 9 House Leaders from each House, share their Chapel messages with Year 6-12 students. Their messages included anecdotal strategies to plan and make good decisions as they approach checkpoints, draft due dates, examinations, and final assessment submissions. Bula House Captains, Vice Captains and Year 9 House Leaders organised students into their seven Pastoral Care Groups and provided a deck of cards with instruction to build a tall, yet solid structure. This message in this activity was linked to individual planning of strong foundations and decision-making in preparation for the next four weeks ahead, also a strong message from this week’s Bible reading, Luke 6:46-49, The Wise and Foolish Builders.  It was exciting to see connections grow within the House groups, led capably by the Year 12 House Captains, Vice Captains and Year 9 Leaders, and supported in strength by Heads of House. It is wonderful to see culture and community grow in this integral part of the College.

Pacific Harbour- A Safe Bet with 6-12 Students

The Student Wellbeing Action Group’s initiative of offering a safe space for students during Monday and Tuesday lunchtimes has been a huge success. Pacific Harbour was initiated by Senior College students at the 2022 Strategic Planning Day to encourage connection across the Middle and Senior College and support students’ wellbeing.

The Pacific Harbour student-led initiative provides a safe space to ‘harbour. Students engage in quiet conversation and small activities led by the Year 12 Student Wellbeing Captains, Ben and Lucy and Senior College group members. The space is also supervised and supported by staff.

Clean Up Australia Day- Pacific’s Sustainable Future led by the Environmental Action Group

On Tuesday 28th February, the Year 12 Environmental Captains, Ella and Trixie provided Junior College students with environmentally friendly gloves and compostable bags in support of ‘cleaning’ up the College’s eating areas and surrounding grounds of litter. The National Clean Up Australia Day is held on Sunday 5th March

On Thursday 2nd March it was the Middle and Senior College students’ turn, with many students taking the first steps in actioning a cleaner and rubbish-free College for the future.  The Environmental Action Group are in the process of exploring ways to limit rubbish across P-12, including investigating nude lunch box days with the intent of becoming an environmentally sustainable College for students in the future to enjoy.  Students in Years 6-12 who have an interest in the environment and would like to contribute to the Action Group’s focus on sustainability and limiting rubbish in the College are invited to attend the next meeting held on Wednesday 15th March, 1.05pm in upstairs A Block.

At a Glance

Under the Pacific Umbrella

The beauty of split assemblies allows us to cater our messages for a specific audience. At last week’s P-2 assembly, Mrs Ridley and Mrs Hogan explored the concept of inclusion under our “Pacific Umbrella”. The story that children were shown involved an umbrella that everyone was welcomed to shelter under. There was room for everyone, every shape and size, every emotion and behaviour. To further expand on this message, a very special group of people were invited to be part of the umbrella, further embedding a message of inclusion. Everyone possesses an innate dignity and has the right to be included regardless of the situation. The students were very vocal in their conviction that everyone has a right to be part of our umbrella and be accepted for what they are. As part of our Pacific Way, we embrace diversity and celebrate the God-given gifts of others in our lives.

Restorative Approaches

A crucial part of the Pastoral Care process at Pacific is the attention and faith given to supporting students through restorative frameworks. It is the purpose of restorative practice to build or mend relationships that are worthy of maintaining. Restorative circles can take many forms and serve many purposes. Restorative conferencing can be a process that addresses wrongdoing and conflict and can seek to repair damage to relationships.

The implementation of Circle Time is an important part of our framework. Circle Time is a practical way to skill young people to listen with understanding, tune into feelings and begin to see the world from others’ viewpoints. These Circle Times are intentionally timetabled into classes to build and maintain relationships and encourage a sense of belonging. The ‘grab and go’ Circle Time kit covers such topics as dealing with arguments, what we need when we are hurt and blaming versus fixing. The skills built within this environment aim to build our students' capacity further to navigate the sometimes-confusing world of interpersonal relationships.

At times, the relationships and actions of others can impact the wellbeing of others. At Pacific, we use these events as learning experiences and give voice to all sides to encourage a holistic view of what has transpired.

As a College, we encourage our students to be proactive about such incidents whilst at school. Circle Times and restorative conferencing provide an avenue for children to articulate any potential issues that may have occurred. Our hope as a College is that we are encouraging agency within our students to speak up in a safe and supportive environment and undertake the due process to restore the relationships that may have suffered harm. These restorative processes can be the beginning of a journey to repair harm, and at times, require continuous monitoring. Communication is vital, and I encourage you to keep in close contact with your child’s classroom teacher should you need to give further information or need clarification on wellbeing matters.

SCHIPA Writing Workshop

Last week, five students across Years Five and Six were fortunate enough to attend a writing workshop facilitated by Dr Cameron Seltzer. Students across the Sunshine Coast Independent Network were led by Dr Seltzer in developing suspense and including specific details to make any story more believable. Our Pacific Way statement this week surrounds taking risks in our learning and on Junior Assembly this week, Olive, Vivienne, and Edie, along with Mrs Zweck, shared their experience of going into an unfamiliar setting, interacting with others and exploring new ways in how risk-taking gives depth to our learning. We hope to publish some elements of this experience in the coming weeks.

Take care and God bless.

Lions Youth of the Year

How Would You Define A Successful Human?

Imagine what it might be like to be given a speech topic like this one and only one-minute preparation time and a time limit of two minutes to reach.

For Year 12 students Ben McCormac and Lucy Dimond, that imagining became a reality last weekend when they were Pacific Lutheran College’s representatives in the annual Lions Youth of the Year competition at the Caloundra Lions club.

Ben and Lucy submitted a rigorous application form documenting their academic achievements, community involvement and future ambitions. They participated in an interview where they spoke to the interview panel about the content of their application and answered a series of general knowledge questions. 

Later in the day, they had to deliver two impromptu speeches, the topics included, how would you define a successful human and, Influencer or role model; which is the winner?   Ben and Lucy were the only contestants to make the impromptu time goal and gave thoughtful and well-crafted speeches that captivated the audience. The five-minute prepared speeches followed the impromptu speeches, and all the contestants presented passionate perspectives on various issues that impressed the judges and the Lions in the audience.

Lucy won the Public Speaking component of the contest, and Ben was the overall Youth of the Year winner. He now progresses to the District competition this weekend. We wish him all the best. 

We thank the Lions Club of Caloundra for the opportunity for Pacific students to engage in these experiences, build essential life skills and develop valuable evidence for university scholarship applications in the future. 

We also thank Ben and Lucy for being excellent ambassadors for our College and appreciate their warm engagement with their fellow competitors and with the members of the Lions Club of Caloundra.

The Library staff escorted 31 excited students from both primary and secondary to Voices on the Coast Literature Festival at The University of the Sunshine Coast. Each student participated in four sessions, drawing from the wisdom of famous authors and illustrators. It was evident that the enthusiasm of each presenter was contagious and caused some students to write up a very long list of books to read, promoted within the sessions. During breaks, bookselling and author signing was a bustling affair. Students had a busy day filled with dreams, hopes and possibilities. Stay tuned for dates for next year.

Monday Night Netball

This week marked the start of the Sunshine Coast Secondary Schools’ Netball (Monday Night Netball) Competition. We had 7 out of our 9 teams competing in the first round of fixtures and all our players represented the College admirably in their first games together. The Junior Teams, PLC Crystal and PLC Garnet had tough games to start with, and while they didn’t get the win, they will have gained valuable experience playing together in preparation for next week. Our Intermediate and Senior teams came out of the blocks firing and all managed to win their fixtures - a great effort. Our Senior A Girls will begin their campaign next week at the very top level of the competition and we wish them all the best.

SCISSA Junior and Intermediate Soccer

Well done to our soccer players on another hard-fought round this week. Our Intermediate Boys played at home against each other with Team 1 coming out victorious. The Intermediate Girls continued on their winning streak with a 3-1 victory over St Andrew’s. The Junior Boys were away at Matthew Flinders this week and had to compete in a doubleheader. The team were competitive in the first match, only going down 1-0 in a tight tussle against Matthew Flinders. Unfortunately backing up for 2 games in one afternoon did take a toll and they were unable to match St Andrew’s skill and intensity in the second game. All teams are very much in the fight for a finals spot and we wish them all the best over the next few rounds. 

SCISSA Senior Volleyball

Our Volleyball teams have now settled into the season and most of the double headers have been played. The Senior Boys Team 1 had a double header this week, but it was their best round to date! Congratulations to the team for going undefeated this round with a draw and a win in their fixtures. It has been a tough season for them so far, and it was great to see their perseverance pay off. The Senior Boys Teams 2 and 3 are showing improvement each week and they are becoming more consistent in their skill execution. The Senior Girls Team 1 went down in two very close sets to Good Shepherd in their A Division fixture and will be looking to bounce back next week. A big congratulations to our Senior Girls Teams 2 and 3 for posting wins this week which will keep them in the hunt for a top-four placing.

Student Acknowledgements

PLC Netball Club

Not long now before the Netball season really gets going. Saturday 11th March will see our first round of matches in a Grading ‘Round-robin’ style program where teams will play multiple, shorter games on the day.  The day will be split into two sections with Divisional teams (Div. 1 to Div. 7) in the morning (approximately 8.00am – 12.00pm) and younger teams (U12s, U11s, SET and GO) in the afternoon (approximately 12.00pm – 3.30pm).  Exact times and details will be provided early next week.

After the first training session last week, there have been some changes to some of the teams. All parents and caregivers should have received an email from the Team Coach this week – if not, please email the President at the address below.

Parents and caregivers play an essential part in encouraging and supporting their child’s participation in their chosen sport, such as by providing a positive role model and encouraging fair play.  Some ideas on how parents and caregivers can positively support their children include:

•          Support your child enthusiastically

•          Encourage your child without expecting perfection

•          Be a good role model – to young people and other parents

•          Promote fair play

•          Acknowledge the efforts of all the young people

•          Encourage your child to play by the rules

•          Support the coaches and officials (particularly young officials)

•          Share challenges or criticisms (of officials, coaches, or players) in a constructive way

•          Encourage other spectators to be positive

•          Challenge or report poor side-line behaviour

•          Allow the coaches to coach

•          Support and respect your child’s ambitions in the sport

•          Remember that this is your child’s sporting experience – not yours

•          Celebrate and support your child as a whole person who needs a range of experiences both inside and outside sport.

We welcome any suggestions for helping our club or providing feedback if you have any concerns.
