We Will Remember Them

This week through participation in the ANZAC Day March and a range of services our community has joined with the Australian community to remember the sacrifices of our Defence Personnel and their families. We show our deepest respect for their service by living our lives well. Parent and veteran, Major Duncan Buchanan spoke to this theme at both our ANZAC Day services on Wednesday. Within the Year 6-12 service, Major Buchanan encouraged our students to draw on the ANZAC’s spirit and learn through failure and the physical, mental and social-emotional challenges encountered in life. Our goal as we learn is to grow to be “good humans” who make a difference for others. Major Buchanan encouraged our P-5 students to emulate the service of the ANZACs by acting to help their friends, their families and the broader community. As we engaged in the remembrances, we expressed our gratitude for the sacrifices of our defence personnel and their families and the freedoms their service has given.

Within the College services, we were also reminded of Jesus’ sacrifice for us so that we might live our lives free of the burden of sin and that God walks with us. As we encounter life’s challenges and failures, we can turn to God for guidance and support. As we see need in our friends, family and the broader community, we act with compassion and courage to meet the need of our neighbour. 

Principal’s Log

As a sign of respect over 300 Pacific students participated in the Caloundra RSL ANZAC Day March on Tuesday. RSL President, Heather Christie expressed her appreciation for our student’s attendance and to our Marching Band for their leadership of the school’s section of the March. Students were also part of other groups including Blake Dines and Brad Maloney who were part of the catafalque party. We thank President Heather Christie and veteran Major Duncan Buchanan for leading our reflections and remembrances at the College. We thank our students for the respect shown through their attendance and reflection.  We appreciate the time and talent of our musicians who added considerably to both the March and our Middle and Senior College service. We thank Chaplain Mrs Holly Gricks for her leadership of the College services and our parents for their support.

Our rugby teams played with good spirit and skill to perform well over the weekend as part of the Armidale School Rugby Carnival. The students enjoyed the opportunity to experience the life of a boarder as well as test their rugby skills against teams from across New South Wales and Queensland. We thank Ms Leigh Finter and coaches Mr Darren Hooper, Mr Josh Cummins and Mr Scott Crompton for their leadership and our parents for their support of the team.

Staff and students are beginning preparations for our Open Day on Sunday 7th May from 12.30pm to 3.30 pm. Students enjoy the opportunity to showcase the College through their leadership of tours and participation in performances and activities. The day provides a relaxed opportunity for parents to learn more about the next phase of learning at the College, to enjoy performance, the fare of our hospitality students and to welcome new families into our community. Parents are encouraged to assist the Friends of Pacific in the running of the BBQ as outlined in their article later in the newsletter and to invite community members who might be considering Pacific for their children’s education.

The PIPPIN cast and crew are honing their performances and look forward to sharing their talent on May 19th and 20th. We look forward to what promises to be a thoroughly entertaining production.  Tickets are selling quickly and can be purchased through the Caloundra Events Centre. We wish Director, Mrs Janine Delaney and her cast and crew all the best as they engage in their final rehearsals.

The wearing of the Formal Winter Uniform will commence on Monday 8th of May. Families are encouraged to ensure that they have purchased all elements of the winter uniform. Details of this can be found in the Uniform Guide. This includes having sufficient jumpers. Students are not permitted to wear their sports jacket with their Formal College Uniform. At this time, Middle and Senior College students will also revert to changing into and out of their sports uniform for physical education lessons and sport during the day.

We say a prayer of thanks for the service of our defence personnel and their families and pray that God would provide for their needs. We pray for peace around the world and for all those affected by conflict. We pray that we have the courage to grow through challenges and failure and to meet the needs of our neighbour.

Chaplain’s Update

This week's Chaplain's update will focus on the theme of forgiveness, inspired by Matthew 18: 21-22. We'll delve into why we can extend our forgiveness to others, drawing from the teachings of Jesus.

In addition, we had several significant events taking place in our College community this week. We held our Junior and Senior ANZAC services in chapel, where we honored the sacrifices of our ANZAC soldiers. On Friday, we're excited to celebrate the opening and dedication of the new J-Block building, a fantastic addition to our College community.

We're also delighted to announce that our Youth Group is back this term with an array of exciting events planned. In Week 3, we'll meet on Sunday (7th May) from 5.30pm-7.00pm. In Week 7, we have a special Youth planned on Thursday night (1st June), and in Week 9, we'll gather again on Sunday (18th June) for a time of connection, faith-building, and fun.

Year 11 Leadership Day #1

Pacific has a strong culture of growing student leadership across the College.  The introduction of an amended Leadership Development Program that speaks directly to the College’s mission statement and 2023-2026 Strategic Plan of growing and enhancing student leadership and connections to Pacific Alumni was well received by our current Year 11 cohort.

On Wednesday 26th April, the Year 11 cohort engaged in the College’s first customised Leadership Day, programmed by Ms Leigh Finter, Head of Senior College Students and sessions facilitated by Director of Students, Mr Mark Hauser, Heads of House, Head of Learning Senior College and Head of Careers.  Small group activities and discussions were facilitated by past Pacific graduates who held leadership positions from College Captain and Vice Captains, Sports Captains and House Captains.  Year 11 students appreciated a Q&A session with the Alumni.

Students were provided with the opportunity to engage in a range of leadership and cohort-building activities. Students spent time reflecting in their small groups and together as a cohort, focusing on the statement: leadership is not a position, it’s a relationship.

At the end of each activity and challenge, students discussed leadership qualities and attributes that exist within the team.

Students enjoyed a pizza lunch and time to play basketball and volleyball, and socialise in a more relaxed environment before finishing with a  presentation by Ms Anne-Marie Gerlach, Head of Learning and Mrs Wanda Hayes, Head of Careers. 

Year 11 students will engage in a second leadership day, Wednesday 19th July, Week 2, Term 3.  During this day, students will have a more targeted focus on discussing cohort goals and intentions to ensure a successful final year as students at Pacific.

Ms Leigh Finter, Head of Senior College Students

From the Head of Staff and Students P-5

What does it mean to really achieve?

During the past week, I was listening to a podcast around the topic of what we, as humans can learn from the comic strip, Charlie Brown. In “Peanuts” the central character, Charlie Brown is forever coming up against a world full of challenges and overcoming obstacles constantly presenting themselves. It delves into his everyday struggle and resilience in overcoming what life continually throws at him. The overwhelming opinion of the podcast was that it is through the experiences of “losing” that we grow and incrementally, failure is a far greater teacher than success. When faced with a challenge, we can throw ourselves on the ground, or we can throw ourselves into conquering what is before us. 

Our overarching focus for this term in You Can Do It is on achievement and particularly the valuing of individual differences and celebrating the unique set of skills that each of us contributes to the College. In Pacific Way, we will investigate the “we” component and how we collaborate and work toward our own expectations of achievement. Like all pursuits worth doing, accomplishment takes time. They are a continual work in progress and require persistence, resilience, and energy from all sides to meet goals.

Sometimes we fail to meet the goals and expectations that we expect for ourselves and can falter, and we learn valuable lessons about ourselves and each other. A favourite quote of mine is from Ash Barty that summed this thinking up “I never lost, I learnt.” Forgiveness and reflection are crucial in rebuilding our expectations when they may falter. But our achievements must be tempered by understanding that our successes don’t define us and that all of us are uniquely worthy.

In the past, I have listened to industry leaders speak about how best to prepare students for life beyond school; their primary focus tends to be on attributes rather than specific skill sets. They want people who can collaborate productively, problem-solve effectively, and empathise with others. Separating our triumphs from our worth is essential and what our pastoral care program here at Pacific, seeks to achieve.

A final word of reflection that sums this notion up is from a Year 5 student that was shared as part of a leadership day last term;

“As a community, we must respect, accept and indulge differences. People are all different, so do not correct people for their personality, instead, cherish the feeling and grow together.”


On Wednesday morning, our Junior College gathered to commemorate the sacrifices provided by our servicemen and women through the years and in an ongoing capacity in situations around the globe.

As the number of veterans dwindles it is important for young people to not only remember the sacrifices of the past but to accept the responsibility for continuing this legacy of remembrance into the future.

Thank you to the many families that attended the Anzac March in Caloundra on Tuesday. It was especially heart-warming to see many Prep students attending for the first time and beginning a tradition that will continue to grow through their time in the College.

Bringing resources to the College.

With the restriction to COVID-19 now relaxed, students are beginning to bring in resources from home. Students are enjoying the return to normality, however, we are encouraging the bringing in of cards, such as Pokémon, to be brought in with some limitations. It is essential that these activities are limited and that students are free to move, exercise and use their bodies fully in the playground. As a result, these cards will be limited to Fridays. All students and staff are aware of this, and we will continue to educate our students on this expectation.

Take care and God bless.

Food for Thought

Saying Sorry

Imagine this…

You just yelled at your child. You said something you didn’t mean. You felt overwhelmed and frustrated, and it all happened so fast.

Now, you feel horrible.

Every parent has had moments like these, myself included. And our emotions are also valid.

But when we have those moments, it’s important not to dwell on the guilt. The guilt is a cue that we’ve done something we’re uncomfortable with–something we need to repair.

So, this is an opportunity to model to children what it looks like to take ownership of our behaviours.

When you apologize to your child, you teach them that it’s important to admit when they’ve made a mistake.

You also teach them how to make amends when those mistakes are hurtful to someone else.

Your apology can help repair the bond between you and your child and create an opportunity to work together to solve a problem.

Apologizing can sound like:

“I’m sorry I yelled earlier. Can we try again?”

“I should have been more patient. I realize you needed more time to finish up.”

“I want to apologize for assuming you weren’t being honest with me. I should have asked you about it first. Can we have a do-over?”

Monday Night Netball

Our Netball teams started back again on Monday night, and while the rain threatened to cause havoc, games were able to go ahead. There were some very tight games played out with PLC Pearl and Crystal fighting their way to tie up their matches and PLC Emerald went down by 1 point in their Intermediate A fixture. It was great to see our top team, PLC Sapphire, pick up another win this week. We hope the teams enjoy another week off next week and come back ready to compete on the 8th of May.

SCISSA Soccer and Volleyball

Senior Soccer

Our 3 Senior teams played their first round of matches in the SCISSA competition on Wednesday afternoon. There was only limited preparation time for our matches so it was great to see all players step up and play to their best. The Senior Girls Team 1 fought out a tight 2-2 draw against St Andrews. Senior Girls Team 2 played a friendly against a combined Matthew Flinders Team, and while they lost, they gained a valuable training run before a proper point fixture next week. Well done to our Senior Boys team for their first-round win over Nambour Christian College. It was a close game until half time and then a couple of late goals helped secure the victory.

Junior and Intermediate Volleyball

There were some great performances from our volleyball teams this week in the opening round of Junior and Intermediate SCISSA Volleyball. Our Junior Girls and Intermediate Boys had some tough matches against quality opposition but should hold their heads up high for maintaining high levels of effort all the way through. Congratulations to our Intermediate Volleyball Girls and Junior Volleyball Boys for their first-round wins. Students are reminded to ensure they have their playing jerseys with them each week for games. Some of our teams have grown unexpectedly so there will need to be some changes in the following weeks. The steps forward for dealing with this will be outlined to players during Friday sport.

Trish Buckley Volleyball

Well done to our Junior Trish Buckley Volleyball teams for their performances in the first round of the competition last Friday night. Our Year 8 Girls had 2 tough games against high performing Caloundra and Burnside teams, and although they didn’t come away with a win, they gained valuable experience playing at this high level. The Year 9 Boys competed hard against GCC but were outplayed in a 3-set loss. They bounced back to win against Meridan College in the last game. Thank you to the Year 8 Boys who had to wait until 8.55pm for their game and it was great to see that all the players turned up and played with great spirit. The game went to a tiebreaker set and the team went down in a close tussle. The teams will have this Friday off and will be back on again on Friday 5th May for Round 2.


PLC Rugby was on form on Wednesday night, posting a convincing win over Good Samaritan Catholic College, defeating them 50 – 7. The boys continued to go from strength to strength, playing a clean and tactical game and supporting each other well on the field. They continue to show excellent improvement from week to week, and it is exciting to continue working with them as they grow as players across the season. Congratulations to Louie McCormac and Sam Rodway on receiving the man of the match this week.

Student Acknowledgements

Well done to the students listed below for their outstanding achievements in sport:

• Holly Targato for her outstanding performances in Athletics over the weekend at the Australian Junior Athletics championships in Melbourne. She finished 10th in Australia!

• Jye Flynn for his recent fantastic achievements in karting where he came 3rd out of 49 competitors in KA3 Junior in Round 2 at the Australian Kart Championships in Perth on 23rd April 2023.

Club Sport

Club Sport

Pacific Lutheran College has several sports development programs outside of school hours. These programs encourage participation, giving students the opportunity to be part of a team, and learn basic skills of the game.

The parent-led Pacific FC Soccer and PLC Netball Clubs compete on Saturdays in community competitions throughout the Sunshine Coast.

PLC Netball Club

With the Labour Day public holiday on Monday, there are no games this long weekend – games resume on 6th May. Game details (through to May) are now available on NetballConnect – please have a chat with your team manager if you have any questions about accessing and navigating NetballConnect.

Suncorp NetSetGO is Netball Australia’s entry-level program. The program promotes a healthy, active lifestyle and helps children develop important social skills, like teamwork as it teaches children the basic skills of netball. It gives children aged 5 to 10 a positive introduction to netball, through skill-based activities, minor games, and modified matches. With three tiers Net, Set and GO, the program is designed especially for children to transition into junior netball with confidence. The program is easy to run and gives clubs and associations the chance to recruit new players and volunteers. Caloundra District Netball Association (CDNA) runs the Net program while clubs, including PLC, run the SET and GO programs.

•          The NET program is focused on learning and acquisition of fundamental motor skills. Participants are introduced to several fundamental motor and netball skills in a netball environment. The activities are simple, require limited equipment and allow for maximum participation and repetition. Participants will experience fun and success by participating in age and developmentally appropriate activities and minor games that foster cooperation, teamwork, and the ability to listen to and follow directions.

•          The SET program is aimed at extension and refinement of movement. Players continue to progress and refine their fundamental movement and netball skills whilst being introduced to additional netball skills and basic netball strategies. This is achieved through a mix of activities, minor games, and organised age-appropriate and modified sports. NetSetGO-modified matches are introduced in this tier. The rules and equipment are adapted to help the participant build confidence and competency. Modified matches should be non-competitive (no scores, ladders, or finals), with all participants provided with equal court time and the opportunity to play in a variety of positions. Learning and refining fundamental movement and netball skills via training activities should continue to be the focus in this tier.

•          The GO program is focused on netball-specific skill development.  Players are introduced to more netball-specific skills as well as refining their fundamental movement skills. This is a period of accelerated development of coordination and fine motor control. It is also a time when children enjoy practising skills they learn and seeing their own improvement. NetSetGO modified match rules are adapted at this level to provide a smooth transition into junior netball (adult rules) whilst ensuring the participants are achieving success. Modified equipment (size 4 ball and 2.4m goal post) is still an important adaptation for this tier as it allows for correct technique to be executed with greater proficiency. Competitive elements (like scoring) may be introduced however the focus should not be on winning (CDNA GO teams do not record scores). All participants should be provided with equal court time and exposure to a variety of positions.

This season PLC has 1 SET team (Angels) and 2 GO teams (Spirits and Dynamos). Parents and caregivers play an essential part in encouraging and supporting their NetSetGO child’s participation.  Some ideas on how to positively support their children include:

•          Support your child enthusiastically

•          Remember the focus at this level is on skill development and teamwork, not winning.

•          Encourage your child without expecting perfection

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

•          Allow the coaches to coach

•          Support the coaches and officials (particularly young officials)

If someone is unable to attend training or the game, it is important to contact your Team coach or Manager (in the first instance) or the President’s email as a last resort.  Please ensure your team manager and coach have your correct contact details (email and mobile phone number).
