The Power of Encouragement

As we encourage people, we can give them the courage to take on new experiences and stretch themselves to step out of their comfort zone.  As we encourage, we share our belief in who and what someone can be. Encouragement helps people to grow in self-confidence and belief. It can generate energy and inspire people to continue to embrace and grow through challenges. Encouragement can lift people up, broaden perspectives and enable people to see possibilities. As we encourage, we generate hope and nurture the growth of courageous action in our friends, peers, co-learners, and family members. Encouragement is contagious. As we encourage, an attitude and atmosphere of “can do” is generated.

God encourages us within the Bible to see ourselves as loved parts of his creation, known to him, down to the hairs on our heads. We are encouraged to be people who spread love and hope, to be encouragers who see the possibility in ourselves and others. With God at our side, we can step forward boldly.

Principal’s Log

National Reconciliation Week is a time as community where we can learn about our shared history, cultures and how we can contribute to achieving reconciliation within our country. National Reconciliation Week occurs from 27th May until 3rd June each year. This year’s theme of “Be A Voice for Generations” is encouraging Australians to grow in their understanding of our shared past and to work together towards reconciliation. As part of this process of growing towards reconciliation, communities are encouraged to develop a Reconciliation Action Plan. Mr Damian Davis, Head of Staff and Students P– 5 is leading this process for the Pacific community. I would encourage all members of our community to read the article that Mr Davis has written later in this newsletter.

We congratulate our Year 5 and 7 teams who competed in the State competition of the Da Vinci Challenge this week. We congratulate Kimika Conrad, Jessica Cronin, Fletcher Friend, Nicole Hodgett, Catherine Maclean, Sabine Michel-Power, Paris Pohlner, Asha Rudes, Liam Cronin, Ashlan Hill, Luke Noovao, Vivienne Padwick, Scarlett van den Hurk, Olive Wadey and Eli Woolgrove on their outstanding achievements. We thank Mrs Julie Darr, Mr Andrew Block, Ms Adelle Byerlee and Mrs Linda Sydes for their leadership and support of these teams.

We congratulate Mrs Janine Delaney and the cast and crew for an outstanding production of Pippin. Brilliant direction supported by clever costuming and staging, and very talented performances and choreography provided a fast-paced thoroughly entertaining production where the magic shone through. The combination of illusion, dancing, music, singing, humour, and masterful storytelling had us moving and waiting in anticipation for what would unfold next. Well done to the many people who through their very talented, professional, creative, and capable leadership and encouragement enabled the student talent to shine through.  Congratulations and thank you to Mrs Janine Delaney for her direction, Mr Neil Booth for his musical direction, Yr 12 student Lillian Atkinson for her choreography, Ms Georgie Snelling as production manager and promotion, Mrs Tracy Hickey for costume and prop management, Mrs Helen Williams and Mr Paul Cusick as rehearsal assistants and band members, Ms Jasmin Groves and Mrs Mel Percival as stage assistants, Mrs Wanda Hayes as microphone manager, Mrs Julie Darr as the Qlab manager, and Mrs Samantha Barrass for marketing and program design. Thank you to Mrs Simone Shaw, Mrs Leanne Bevis, Mrs Ange Hill, Mr Mike Healy and Mrs Shannon Russell for their varied support. It was great to see past students Jasmin Groves, Liam Russell, Makani Campbell and Alyssa O’Sullivan providing their support.  Thank you to the parents of our cast and crew for their support over many weeks of rehearsal and to our community for being enthusiastic supporters of the performance.

On Tuesday night we had the first of our Pacific Learning Hub presentations led by Dr Justin Coulson. Over 160 parents registered to join us for the evening.  Parents enjoyed the opportunity to connect with each other as they appreciated the canapes and beverages provided by our talented hospitality team and to learn as they reflected on the entertaining and thought-provoking presentation provided by Dr Coulson. We thank our Head of Students, Senior College, Ms Leigh Finter for her organisation of the event, our hospitality team for their wonderful fare and service and our parents for your support of the evening.

We pray that God would enable us to be people who encourage others. We also pray that God would help us to see our mutuality with all of creation and equip us to be people who can restore and reconcile.

Chaplain’s Update

This week in the Chaplain's Update, we will explore the theme of courage. We take a closer look at our thread for the week and its connection to the story of Peter denying Jesus. It reminds us that sometimes fear can hold us back from being courageous.

For the month of May, we are involved in the Red Shield Appeal and the last week for donations is approaching. We have had community events to enjoy, such as a Casual Clothes Day for Years 6-12 and a Crazy Sock Day for P-5 on May 24th. These activities provided us with a wonderful opportunity to show generosity and share God's love for people.

Youth will be back on Thursday of Week 7, and we will celebrate with an after-school BBQ on Thursday 1st June. It's an excellent occasion to come together and build community.

Lastly, this week in Chapel, our House Leaders took charge of leading House Chapels. In Junior College, we have the privilege of having 2C leading us in chapel activities.

Working Toward Reconciliation

The end of this week marks National Reconciliation Week, where communities across Australia learn more about a shared history, culture and achievement to take time to reflect on the role each of us plays in working toward reconciliation with First Nations People.

Reconciliation is the strengthening of relationships with indigenous groups to benefit all. This year’s theme of “Be a voice for generations” is a challenge for all Australians to make a concerted effort to address the unfinished business of reconciliation for greater prosperity and connection.

Reconciliation Week begins this week with National Sorry Day. National Sorry Day was a momentous moment for this country and modelled taking responsibility for the past actions of others. It acknowledged that policies aimed at First Nations Peoples had a detrimental and long-lasting generational impact.

As a College, Reconciliation Week provides an opportunity for reflection and how we, as individuals and community, begin to move toward truth-telling and strengthen relationships between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples and non-Indigenous People. It allows all people to obtain a greater understanding of the rich history of this land and the intricate stories embedded within it, both new and old.

Lutheran Pastor Chad Rimmer speaks of a God that has two moves, to create and to reconcile. Beginning to understand this inherent relationship in reconciliation is essential and he writes,

“Seeing the way God reconciles Creation in Christ equips us to see God’s Spirit at work restoring creation today. Faith gives us the eyes to see beauty among the broken. Faith gives us the eyes to see healing among the hurt. Faith gives us eyes to see the mutuality among the multitude of creatures, great and small.” Rev Chad Rimmer

Whilst attending the Year Four Outdoor Education Program at Mapleton last week, I was privileged to listen to local Kabi Kabi Elder Mr Kerry Neill speak of new and old connections. The wind on your face, the sun on your back is a connection. Some of these connections are new; others are ancient; regardless, it is a connection. With that connection comes responsibility.  We all have a connection to this country and as a result, God’s creation. The connected nature of creation and reconciliation is in action every day within our environment and with each other and we are asked to reflect on how we may make this creation better tomorrow than it was today.

One such tool to build a better knowledge of Reconciliation is the development of a Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP). A RAP is a framework for organisations to realise their vision for engaging well with Aboriginal people and creating positive pathways and processes for people. To better understand the path to reconciliation in our unique context, staff and students continue constructing our own College Reconciliation Action Plan. Our hope is that as a College, we begin to understand the road to reconciliation better and what steps our community takes toward greater clarity and engagement with Indigenous knowledge.

Take care and God Bless.

Career Clusters in focus (Years 10-12)

This is the third part in a 6-week series of articles, where I will be overviewing one of the 6 Career Clusters each week. Senior College students have access to information about the Career Clusters on the PLC Careers Hub and will have an opportunity to learn about the Clusters in their PD lessons.

So far, we have looked at Makers and Guardians.

This week’s focus cluster is Coordinators.

Coordinators support all industries to manage, monitor, move, and maintain their systems, so things run smoothly. They are skilled at maintaining schedules, and strategic planning, and are also often responsible for organising others in their team. Coordinators are found in every industry, and work at all levels of an organisation, from data entry through to senior management.

In addition to their technical skills, important transferable skills for Coordinators include Organisation, Attention to detail, and Communication and collaboration. Does this sound like you? What jobs do you know that fit within this cluster?

Food for Thought

Parenting an Early Teen - Age 13-15 years

Parenting an early teen is a lot like parenting a toddler in some ways. The developmental stage is all about moving toward independence, not always gracefully or responsibly.

We can't change our child's basic personality, and the outside environment has a profound effect, from peers to school to media. But how we parent makes a critical difference in how our teen acts.

If we can manage our own emotions, extend respect, offer appropriate freedom, and maintain intimacy and communication -- a tall order for most parents -- we can be pleasantly surprised by how rewarding the teen years can be. The rewards are huge, as we watch our child transform and blossom in front of our eyes.

Monday Night Netball

Round 8 games were played last night and from our nine teams we had six teams win, one team draw and two teams narrowly losing by 1 point. Great netball played by all with one more week to end the rounds and then all teams will know who is in the top four for finals.  Currently, we have five teams progressing towards the top four, which is an excellent result. A special mention goes to our Senior A girls with their win putting them firmly in contention for a 3rd place finish for the season. A remarkable effort!

Thank you to all the PLC supporters for braving the cold and supporting all our teams in the last weeks of our competition. We are looking forward to a strong finish to the season!


With the sun going down earlier and the chill coming in, our Senior teams continued to step up to play to their best in their fixtures this week. Our Senior Girls teams went down in some tough matches against quality opposition. The Senior Girls Team 2 held Matthew Flinders to 1 all at halftime but couldn’t find the momentum to take out the game. Well done to our Senior Boys for a strong 4-1 home win over Suncoast at home.

Junior and Intermediate Volleyball

Our Intermediate Boys and Girls were all off campus this week and faced some tough opposition in CCPS and SCGS.  The Intermediate Boys and Girls Team 1 went down 1-2 in their fixtures, with the Intermediate Girls Team 2 going down 0-2. Our Junior teams had a home game with both boys and girls playing competitively in their fixtures. The Junior Girls pushed past a hard first set to push Immanuel to within a few points of the following sets. Congratulations to the Junior Boys team for their strong win over Good Shepherd which should see them hold onto 2nd place on the table.

Trish Buckley Volleyball

Our Year 8 Boys and Girls Teams represented PLC incredibly well for their last fixtures of the Trish Buckley competition. It was another massive afternoon and evening for our students, parents and coaches having to be at the venue from 5.00pm until close to 10.00pm. Our students’ commitment to their teams has been nothing short of fantastic and we have always had our players ready for games and duties. Our teams have learnt a lot from their first Trish Buckley campaign, and I am sure that we will see many of these students continue on in representative volleyball in the years to come.

Basketball Blitz

Well done to our Intermediate Basketball boys who played in the Basketball Blitz competition last night. It was a great showing for our boys with a gritty 1-point win against the Senior Unity Boys team as well as a tight loss against Meridan. Our boys are showing great signs in their preparation for the All Schools season and CBSQ in Term 4. Thank you to Mr Brad Burdon for all his hard work in preparing our players for their basketball pursuits.

Term 3 Competitive and Friday Sport

Thank you to all the students who have signed up for Competitive Sports in Term 3. We have had another huge uptake for competitive sports teams, and it looks like we will have 16 Basketball, 6 Touch Football, 3 Water Polo and potentially 2 Girls 10 a side Rugby teams. An amazing effort from our students. We are looking to get information out by next week to all competitive teams so there may be some lunchtime meetings to confirm numbers.

Please note that Term 3 Friday Sports Sign Up will go live on Monday the 5th of June and close Wednesday the 14th of June. Students will be emailed the options along with the link to sign up.

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

PLC Netball Club

Results from the last round of games saw the Fury Div2 (34 - 24) and Avengers U12-1 (25 - 9) take away wins while the Fireballs had a bye and Mavericks a forfeit win. Our remaining teams, Mavericks (Div 4) and Rebels (U12-2) ended their games without a win but maintained great team work to the final whistle. Well done to all teams.

Netball umpiring is an integral part of the Australian netball community. Umpiring isn’t about enforcing rules but more about helping to keep the game safe, fair, and fun for everyone. Not to mention developing personal skills like communication, resilience, and leadership.  PLC would like to congratulate the following players who have successfully completed their umpire training and umpired their first matches last Saturday:

Jemma Costa, Sasha Kopera, Tahli Sanderson and Georgina Pike.
