Remembering As One

As we commemorate Remembrance Day, we remember all of those who have served our country to preserve the freedoms and way of life we enjoy.  As we remember, we remember the Australians of all different backgrounds and countries including indigenous people who have stood together and made sacrifices for us. Our strength comes from our identity as one nation, strengthened by our diversity with common respect for values and principles that are at the core of our country.  As one nation, there is a common sense of shared home and shared purpose.  We show our respect for the sacrifices people have made by making the most of our opportunities and strengthening our sense of common identity.  We stand respectfully together as one, to continue to build on the tremendous gifts our elders have given us.

Principal’s Log

We congratulate our Robotics team who very successfully competed in the regional First Lego League Competition held in Morayfield over the weekend. The team won the Robot Design, Robot Performance and overall Engineering Excellence sections of the competition earning selection to represent Queensland in the National finals later this month. We congratulate our Year 8 and 9 team and wish them all the best for the upcoming national finals. We thank Mrs Janine Stone and Mrs Nicole Schirripa for their very capable leadership of our Robotics teams and digital technology within the College.

Many parents joined us for the Year 5 and 6 Ensembles Concert which celebrated the growth of musicianship of our students within the classroom strings, concert band and vocal classroom programs. Our students are very privileged to have this opportunity to learn an instrument from very capable teachers and tutors. We congratulate the students on their growth and performances.  We thank our parents for your support of our music program and our Head of Instrumental Music, Mrs Helen Williams, Ms Kryst-elle Hill, Mr Paul Cusick and very capable music tutors for their nurturing of musicianship in our students.

As a further highlight, the College’s Choral program received a boost through sessions provided by highly regarded vocal coaches Sharon Brooks and Darren Percival. Sharon has international experience including performing in the ‘Elvis” movie and Darren is a very successful vocalist who was a runner-up in The Voice in 2012. We look forward to the continued strengthening of our Choral group.

Parents also joined with staff and students to cheer on our SCISSA Rugby 7s teams as they competed in their semi-finals. It was great to see our U13 Girls, and Under 13 Boys and Girls Teams compete in the Division 1 semi-finals. While each team was disappointed to lose the first semi final, they all went on to play very well to win the bronze medal match. We congratulate all of our students who competed in the Rugby 7s competition. We thank our parents, staff and students for their support and thank coaches Mr Josh Cummins, Mr Josh Danzey, Mrs Kristie Brock, Ms Tiffany Harman, Mrs Leah Croke, Mr Brendan Macaulay, Georgie Snelling, Rob Belchamber, and Danica Cockburn for supporting the growth of our rugby players.

We wish our Intermediate B Boys and Junior B Girls Basketball teams all the best for their grand finals this week. We congratulate our Water Polo teams on their performances and wish the Intermediate Girls all the best for their Bronze medal match and the Junior Boys for their grand final match next Monday. Our kayakers are also competing in the School State Sprint Championships this Friday and we wish them all the best as they complete their final competition for the year.

This week we join with the Sunshine Coast Grammar and broader Queensland educational community to remember and celebrate the significant contribution of past Principal Mrs Maria Woods. Throughout her time, Mrs Woods has made a difference to the lives of many people as an educator, leader and friend. We extend our sympathy to her family, friends and communities to which she has served so well including Sunshine Coast Grammar. We pray that God would comfort and support all those who miss her vibrant and warm presence.

We farewell Middle and Senior College Christian Studies, Japanese and Humanities teacher Mrs Virginia Schlotterbach. We appreciate that Mrs Schlotterbach will be completing the assessment and reporting for her classes which will be taken by Mrs Kana Chan. We thank Mrs Schlotterbach for the high quality of learning and care she has provided and her generosity in supporting a variety of activities within the College including our Youth Group. We wish Mrs Schlotterbach all the best as she takes on a role of Senior Consultant, Strategy and Investment within the private sector.

We look forward to celebrating our Sports Awards and Year 12 graduation events at the end of next week and wish those Year 12s who still have exams all the best.

We thank God for the peace and many opportunities we experience in Australia and pray that He would equip us to live well as one nation and one community. We pray for those around the world who are suffering through the impact of war and conflict and that God would bring peace to their communities.

The Humble Gift: Giving at Christmas

As we approach the end of another school year, it’s so easy to get caught up in the busyness of life. This is particularly true as we lead into Christmas, as things always get increasingly more hectic with end of school year events, family holidays, family visits or travelling to visit family. It’s enough to make us all need a holiday from the holiday. But it is important for us to take some time to reflect on our situation and put some things into perspective. We are so blessed and fortunate to be living how we do, with a roof over our heads, free from war and access to clean water and food. But not everyone is in the same boat.

Luke 18:9-14 talks about two kinds of people:

"He also told this parable to some who trusted in themselves that they were righteous and treated others with contempt: 'Two men went up into the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector. The Pharisee, standing by himself, prayed thus: "God, I thank you that I am not like other men, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even like this tax collector. I fast twice a week; I give tithes of all that I get." But the tax collector, standing far off, would not even lift his eyes to heaven, but beat his breast, saying, "God, be merciful to me, a sinner!" I tell you; this man went down to his house justified, rather than the other. For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, but the one who humbles himself will be exalted.'"

In this parable, Jesus teaches us a profound lesson about the importance of humility and the heart of giving. The Pharisee, in his self-righteousness, prided himself on his own deeds and looked down upon others. He was blind to his own shortcomings. In contrast, the tax collector humbly acknowledged his sinfulness and pleaded for God's mercy.

Christmas is a season of giving, a time when we remember the greatest gift ever given: the birth of Jesus Christ. God, in His infinite love and mercy, humbly came to us as a vulnerable baby in a manger. The act of giving was a central theme of Christ's life, and it should be central to our celebration of His birth.

As we gather with family and friends, let's not forget those who are in need. Christmas is an opportunity to express our gratitude for the gift of salvation by sharing that love with others. Just as the tax collector recognized his need for mercy, we too can acknowledge our need to reach out to those who require our help, support, and compassion.

During this season, let's remember the vulnerable, the marginalized, and the less fortunate. Like the tax collector pleading for mercy, we can show God's love by extending our hands to help others. For the last three weeks of this term, Pacific is running a Christmas Appeal to help support the Salvation Army. You would have received an email outlining this, but here is a short clip about it all as well.

I hope that we can all use this time to reflect on our own personal situation and see where we can humbly help others. The parable of the Pharisee and the tax collector reminds us that the essence of giving is a humble heart, and this humble heart is precisely what Christmas calls us to cultivate. May our giving this Christmas season be rooted in the recognition of our own need for grace and in our willingness to share that grace with others. By doing so, we truly embody the spirit of Christmas and honour the birth of our Saviour, Jesus Christ. Amen.

Leadership in 2024

It is with great pleasure that I write to you today to share some wonderful news about our Year 8 students and their impressive interviews for Middle College Leadership roles. The future of Pacific Lutheran College is in capable hands and the interview process has truly demonstrated the potential, passion, and enthusiasm of our students.

It has been evident for me and our Heads of House that our Year 8 students exhibit a remarkable level of student agency. They have shown a deep understanding of our College’s values and it has been exciting to witness how they plan to uphold and enhance these principles in their leadership roles. This strong sense of ownership and commitment to continue to improve the Middle College is a testament to the exceptional education and nurturing environment that they have experienced here at Pacific Lutheran College.

Our Year 8 students have expressed their pride in the variety of amazing opportunities they have had during their time at our school. The extracurricular activities, academic support, and the camaraderie they have enjoyed have inspired them. These opportunities have fuelled their desire to make a lasting impact, not only in their own lives but in the lives of their fellow Middle College students and in our wider community.

As they embark on this exciting journey towards Middle College Leadership roles it is clear that they are motivated by the desire to make a difference in 2024. Their creative ideas, enthusiasm, and the depth of their commitment to positive change were inspiring. We can anticipate great things from this talented group of students as they lead by example and work together to shape the future of our College.

We look forward to the announcement of these positions in the coming days. I would like to thank the parents for the vital role they play in shaping this new generation of motivated, passionate students. We have every reason to be excited about the difference they will make in 2024 and beyond.

Pick a Book, Any Book - What makes a book a Children’s Classic?

Year 4 YACHTS, 2023 (An Impact Project)

This term in YACHTS our Extension Program, chosen Year 4 students presented their Impact Projects.

What is an Impact Project?

It is an independent project. It is an investigative activity. Rather than being a teacher-centered program, it is a student-centered curriculum. It demonstrates the student’s initiative, creativity, determination, and personal values and interests.

Purpose - The purpose of this project is to encourage students to choose a selection of books from a list of Classic Children’s Literature. For this independent reading project, students are in the driver’s seat. They have to design their own project that reflects the impact of these books on them.

An Overview of what students had to do.

1. Look at the question – What makes a book a Children’s Classic? Choose which books they would like to read. They researched authors, themes, and/or topics of their choice from the Classic Children’s Literature selection of books.

2. Next they designed a project that reflected how these books have changed them or their view of history and/or the world and what they have learned.

3. Finally, they reflect and showcase what they have learned through a presentation of their choice.

An Impact Project for independent reading is a project that reflects not only the joy that reading brings but also reflects other things that bring happiness or impact lives in some way.

Congratulations to the students and to Mrs. Julie Darr for her leadership – we had a wonderful afternoon celebrating together.

Last Saturday, the Robotics team represented the College at the Regional First Lego League competition, held at Carmichael College, Morayfield.

The event emphasises the importance of gracious professionalism and cooperation through the core values of discovery, innovation, impact, inclusion, teamwork, and fun, which our team embodied throughout the competition.

Throughout the competition, the team demonstrated their ability to think critically and creatively to generate innovative solutions to complex problems. Students exhibited their engineering skills by designing and programming a Lego Spike Prime robot, to autonomously complete a set of missions on the FLL board within a designated time limit. In addition, they prepared and presented an innovative idea to a panel of judges showing their shared passion and enthusiasm toward solving real world problems.

The team had an exceptional day, resulting in three trophies in the categories of Robot Design, Robot Performance, and overall Engineering Excellence and achieved a personal best score of 320 points in a single run on the FLL board.

These incredible accomplishments are reflective of their teamwork, resilience, and hard work to thinking critically and creatively when solving problems. As a result of their success, our Robotics team has earned a spot in the national finals, set to take place in Gladstone on the 25th of November.

We congratulate our Robotics team for their exceptional achievements and wish them the best of luck in the upcoming national finals.

Speech and Drama Showcase Day

Last Saturday was our annual Showcase Day where Speech and Drama students had the opportunity to perform in front of a live audience as they sat their ASCA practical exams.

Eighteen students from Years 5 to 11 worked extremely hard in the lead-up to the exam and put on an incredible performance for our visiting examiner and a very impressed audience. This year was our largest show to date with individual and paired students performing in one of three sessions spread out over the day.

Even though we haven't received the final results yet, the examiner Ms Anita Eldridge, hinted that all the students put in an exceptional effort and should expect high marks. Most importantly, however, she loved how enthusiastic and joyful everyone was and how they took risks with their staging and creative choices. She often commented that she had, "never seen that done before and absolutely loved it". Ms Eldridge examines students throughout NSW and QLD and said that she wished she could take all of our kids with her to Sydney to show the schools there how to be more creative and 'quirkier' in their exams. Our unofficial motto has always been "We don't do boring" and it couldn't have been truer on Saturday.

A special mention must go to Priya and Matthew in Year 11 as they each did a very high-level Grade 7 Performance exam. Both of these students have been doing Speech and Drama for many years now and have regularly won State awards. They are such a joy to watch perform and I've no doubt they'll have these amazing skills for life. Well done!

In 2024 we are looking at possibly doing mid-year ASCA exams as well as some 'catch-up' exams early in the year for a few students who were away unwell. Thank you so much to all the parents, siblings, grandparents and fellow students in the audience who came along and supported our super-talented actors.

PLC Choir Program

Pacific Lutheran College's Choir and Vocal Program offers students a transformative musical experience, enriching their educational journey and personal growth. Recently, the choir had the privilege of engaging with renowned vocal coaches, Sharon Brooks, and Darren Percival, enhancing their skills, and inspiring their passion for music.

Sharon Brooks, a celebrated vocal coach, performer, recording artist, and actress, conducted workshops for Junior Pacific Voices and students in Years 6 to 11. Her incredible talent and dedication captivated the students, leaving them awe inspired. Sharon's genuine love for the performing arts shone through as she extended her workshop hours and even offered recording opportunities to the senior students on her upcoming release in 2024. Sharon, originally from Barbados, has travelled the world singing and most recently appeared in the Elvis movie starring Tom Hanks.

On Tuesday 7th November, the senior students welcomed Darren Percival, a highly successful Australian vocalist and runner-up on The Voice in 2012. Darren's workshop was not just educational but also incredibly inspiring. I knew we were in for a treat when he selected Kanye West’s Sunday Service -Lord You’re Holy Ballin. He shared insights into the music industry, including singing in front of 80,000 people at the State of Origin and singing for commercials. He sang acapella with the students and even led an unplanned rendition of the National Anthem during the Middle and Senior College Assembly. It was fantastic to hear almost 600 PLC voices singing in unison.

Both Sharon Brooks and Darren Percival emphasize the benefits of choir and vocal ensembles, including inclusiveness, community, sharing, mental health, and experiencing a fun and safe environment. As Darren said, "the science is in, the word is out – singing is good for our health." Research supports these claims, showing that students who participate in choirs are more successful academically, with improved grades in mathematics and language arts. Parents report overall academic improvement and enhanced language arts and math skills in their children after joining a choir.

Pacific Lutheran College's Choir and Vocal Program provides invaluable benefits for students, a fact supported by both parents and teachers. Choral singing has been proven to enhance various aspects of a child's development, including keeping students engaged, building self-confidence, improving memory skills, fostering creativity, instilling practice habits, enhancing academic performance, promoting social development, and emphasizing group participation.

The unanimous agreement among parents and teachers on these benefits underscores the positive impact of choral singing on children's overall development. Pacific Lutheran College's Choir and Vocal Program not only enriches students' musical abilities but also nurtures their self-confidence, creativity, social skills, and wellbeing, making it a truly holistic and enriching experience.

  • Pacific Senior Voices rehearse on Monday afternoons from 3.30pm to 4.15pm. Term 4 is open to anyone currently in Years 6 to 11.
  • Pacific Junior Voices rehearse on Monday at Lunchtime and are currently rehearsing for end of year performances. Students in Years 3 – 6 in 2024 can register for the 2024 Program.
  • New for 2024 - Primo Voices – Rehearsal time TBA. Designed for students in Years 1 and 2. Enrolment in this program will be available in early 2024.

Year 12 Aquatic Practices

For one of the Year 12 Aquatic Practices units, our students gain an understanding of changes to the local waterways because of recent flooding events, learn how to interpret nautical navigation maps and identify how to read and calculate tide heights for both primary ports and secondary places. 

Having completed their online modules, they are then required to put their knowledge to the test by completing a 45-minute theory test and accompanied by a qualified instructor, demonstrate their safe boating techniques to successfully obtain their boat license, which all our students achieved. This course is an important precursor to pieces of assessment for Year 12 whilst providing them with an opportunity to gain valuable hands-on experience with the recreational and commercial boating industry.

Our students consistently engage with courtesy and respect when communicating with members of the community and are constantly praised for the way they conduct themselves.

Finger Knitting in the Junior College

I would like to congratulate Zara and Sabine for their initiation of Finger Knitting into the Junior College on Thursdays at lunchtime. This activity was such a successful Year 7 Pacific Plus project that Zara, with the help of her friends, has continued this into Term 4. The keen junior knitters have not only learned how to finger knit but also made a mat that after being sewn together for many hours by Miss Byerlee was donated to the Junior LEC. They are now in the process of creating another rug for Koda.

“Through the process of doing this project, it has made me very thankful that I can enjoy teaching these young, enthusiastic children this fun skill, and am excited to keep this activity going.” Zara Koebsch

Congratulations Zara and Sabine on the initiation of this lunchtime activity.

SCSS Basketball Finals

Well done to our Semi Finalist basketball teams for their strong performances on Friday night. Our Junior C Girls worked hard but couldn’t quite keep up with their opposition on Friday night. It is a great achievement to get to the Semi Finals stage so well done to the girls and Coach Jess. Congratulations to our Intermediate B Boys and Junior B Girls who took out upset wins in their semi final matches. All the best to these teams and coaches Mr Burdon (Intermediate Boys) and Mr Hauser (Junior Girls) as they play in their Grand Final matches on Friday night at Caloundra Indoor Centre.

Sunshine Coast Secondary School’s Water Polo

Well done to our Water Polo teams who played with great spirit in the penultimate matches of their season. The Intermediate Girls were highly competitive in their match and pushed their opposition all the way to the final quarter. While they didn’t pick up the win, they have shown great development over the season and will look to take their strong performance into their Bronze medal match on Monday. The Junior Boys were dominant in their win at St Andrew’s and have qualified for the B division Grand Final on Monday. Both teams will be playing in their final matches at Sunshine Coast Grammar on Monday the 13th and we wish them, Coach Sam and Mr Crompton, all the best.


Congratulations to all our teams last night for what was another end to an incredible season for a number of our teams. We had 3 teams compete in the division 1 semi-finals and a team in the division 2 semi-finals. Although none of our teams were successful in the semi-finals, coming up against some tough competition and narrow score lines, they can be proud of the spirit and effort they have put in all season. Our U13 girls bounced back to defeat Glasshouse in the 3rd place play-off, with a very convincing win. Our 14 Boys went on to defeat Sunshine Coast Grammar in a very physical and dominant contest and our U14 girls went on to defeat St Andrews in overtime, in what was a very tight contest. A special mention to the boys in the U14 B Team who showed up last night and played with spirit, even with the difficulty of low numbers. I would like to thank the support of all our coaches and parents for their continued support of Rugby and look forward to working with this excellent group of young people in continuing to hone and develop their skills over the coming years.
