Compass No 707 - November 2023

From the Principal

Peace, Joy and Hope

Peace, joy and hope. We can write or read these words without much thought as we prepare for and celebrate Christmas. But when we experience peace, joy or hope they are moments of transformation in our lives. Often, they are times when we pause and connect deeply with other people or nature. When we experience peace, joy or hope we let go of the business and worries of life and engage fully with the moment in front of us.

Jesus came into the world to transform us through God’s love and grace. He came to bring peace, joy and hope to all people. As we look around the world, we can see what a great gift God wants us to experience. We are very blessed to live in a country free of conflict and war and where we can experience the abundance of life and nature every day. More than external experiences, through Jesus' birth, death and resurrection, we are invited to live with deep inner peace, joy and hope as forgiven and forgiving people. We are free to simply live, making the most of our opportunities to bring peace, joy and hope into the lives of other people.

Principal's Log

We shared the joy of our Year 12 students as they celebrated their pastoral care and house farewells, graduation, final chapel and formals at the end of last week. There was a great sense of energy and hopefulness as they shared their appreciation for all they had experienced at the College and looked forward to the next chapter of their lives. The final three days provided a wonderful, warm and dignified finish for our Year 12 students. We thank all of the teachers, support staff and parents who have been part of their 13 years of formal education. We can all be proud of the young men and women they have become. We particularly thank our senior teachers, pastoral care group teachers, Heads of Department, Heads of House and Head of Learning, Senior College, Mrs Anne Marie Gerlach for the significant work they have done in supporting the growth of our graduates through their senior years. We also particularly thank the Director of Students, Mrs Leigh Finter for her leadership and support of our graduates including the oversight and planning of their alternate day program and final events. We thank Mrs Leanne Bevis and Chaplain Mr Mark Hauser for the significant role they played in these celebrations and to all staff and students who made the celebrations such a great experience.  We congratulate and thank our graduates of 2023 for all they have been within our community and wish them every blessing into the future.

A group of our Year 7 students have been selected to represent Australia in the World’s Longest Lesson Youth Panel. Involvement in this group provides the opportunity for students from around the world to connect across 16 different countries and learn about the ways in which youth can enhance the United Nations Sustainability Goals. The students had their first Zoom meeting on Tuesday night and engaged with students from Kenya, Canada, Wales, South Korea and South Africa. We congratulate the students and thank Mrs Linda Sydes for her leadership and look forward to learning more about this unique learning experience over the next 6 months.

We congratulate our kayakers who came second in a storm interrupted Queensland Schools Kayaking Sprint Championship on the Gold Coast, adding to their Marathon event win earlier in the year. It has been a very successful season where students have shown significant improvement. Our kayakers have enjoyed access to new equipment and benefitted from the coaching of Mr Mark Rantel. We congratulate and thank Head of Kayaking, Mr Gary Graves for his years of capable leadership, and Mrs Leah Croke, Mr Sam Irwin, parents and alumni for their generous support.

Year 7 Christian Studies students attended the St Marks congregation service on Sunday and spoke about their exploration of Silent Heroes within the Bible and in modern times. They shared the importance of completing acts of service within families, the College and the broader community and then presented the members of the congregation with handwritten letters the class had created. We thank Mrs Linda Sydes for her leadership of this important intergenerational connection which will bring benefits to the young and the more mature as communication continues.

Our Year 8 and 9 Robotics teams who won the Robot Performance Award, the Robot Design Award and the Engineering Excellence award at the State level competition of the First Lego League competition will compete at the National titles this weekend in Gladstone. We wish our students participating on this national stage well in their final preparations and in competition.

We thank our Friends of Pacific team for their leadership this year. It has been a year where new members have played an important role alongside long term members as they have supported connection and activities across the College. We farewelled long term member Mrs Tracey Hindmarsh who joined the College in 2008 and has provided years of service to this community as a Chair and member of the Friends of Pacific. We also thanked outgoing Chair, Mrs Carly Lovell who has brought a tremendous amount of positive energy into our community as she has very capably led the Friends of Pacific this year.

At the end of this year, we farewell Head of Visual Art, Mrs Denise McMahon, and Head of Innovation and Entrepreneurialism, Mr Wes Warner and thank Head of Digital Technology Mrs Janine Stone as she steps down from her Head of Department role and continues as a teacher at Pacific. All three staff members have made a very significant contribution to the College. Mrs McMahon’s capable and passionate leadership of the Visual Arts since 2005, has enabled students to demonstrate tremendous talent as they have been challenged to explore new ways of thinking and communicating. Since Mr Wes Warner joined us in 2016, he has inspired both staff and students through his leadership of the Business Department, STEM and different iterations of the Innovation and Technology Committee. Mrs Janine Stone has been very generous of her time as she has inspired many students to engage in the learning of digital technology and engage very successfully with our Robotics Club. Mrs Stone has capably led the implementation of digital technology into the College since she began in 2001. We thank Mrs McMahon, Mr Warner and Mrs Stone for their innovative and capable leadership that has nurtured rich student and staff learning as they have grown their highly respected departments. We also farewell and thank contract teacher Mr Chris Landman who has supported Middle and Senior College students in their learning of Physical Education, English and HASS. We wish all of these staff every blessing for the future.

We wish the following staff all the best as they take long service leave from the start of next year, Head of Physical Education, Mr Gary Graves (2024), Year 2 teacher, Mrs Tanya Graves (Sem 1 , 2024), Head of Industrial Technology, Mr Ian Learoyd (Term 1, 2024), Head of Sport, Mr Cameron West-McInnes (Term 1 2024) and Year 5 Teacher, Mr Scott Massie (2024).

We look forward to welcoming Ms Elise Black (Head of Visual Art, from Chisholm Catholic College), Mr Brian Thomas (Middle and Senior College Science and Maths Teacher, from Chancellor State College and International Schools), Ms Kim McFadden (Middle and Senior College Business and Humanities, from Moama Anglican Grammar School), Mr Tim Barrett (Year 6 teacher, from Sunshine Coast Grammar School), Ms Alice Boyd (P-12 PE, from West Moreton Anglican College), Mr Noel Bajada (Middle and Senior College, Industrial Tech and STEM, from Northpine Christine College) and Mrs Hayley Turner (Year 2 teacher, from Landsborough State School). We look forward to welcoming back Ms Alisha Marxen (Midde and Senior College English and Humanities Teacher), Mr Paul Brace (Head of Outdoor Education) and Mrs Colleen Beattie (Head of Hospitality). We thank Mrs Emma Lendrum for her very capable and generous leadership as Acting Head of Hospitality throughout Sem 2, 2023.

We congratulate the following teachers on their appointments, Ms Kristy Brock (Head of Business), Ms Nicole Schrippa (Head of Innovation and Emerging Technologies and Digital Technology), Mrs Marnie Whittaker (Acting Head of Industrial Technology, Term 1 2024) and Mrs Colleen Beattie (Acting Head of VET, Term 1 2024), Mr Brad Burdon (Acting Head of Physical Education, 2024) and Mr Liam Jacka (Acting Head of Sport, Term 1 2024). We have also created a new position of Senior Executive Assistant to provide executive support to the Principal, Business Manager, College Council, the Administration and Leadership Executive and act as Office Manager. We congratulate Mrs Leanne Bevis on her appointment to this role.

As the year draws to a close, we celebrate the tremendous growth that has occurred. We thank all staff, students and parents for their generous support of the College that has enabled young people to experience a rich array of opportunities and experiences. It has been a year of strong purpose, engagement and co-agency. We thank God for all the blessings He has given. We pray that all members of our community have a blessed Christmas where God’s love brings deep inner peace, joy and hope.

From the College Chaplain

Christmas Message

"Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God. Anyone who does not love does not know God because God is love." 1 John 4:7-8.

As another school year draws to a close, there is always a sense of excitement in the air, as we get closer to the impending Christmas holiday break. As the excitement starts to build, it is a good reminder for us to reflect on all that has happened throughout the year as well as the true message of Christmas for us.

The culmination of the academic year represents more than just the conclusion of assignments and exams; it is representative of individual journeys of growth, friendship and discovery. As students (and parents) eagerly await the upcoming holidays, I often find myself reflecting on the experiences that have shaped the year that has gone by. There were fun times, challenges, lessons, and a range of milestones that all contributed to our personal and collective growth.

At the heart of the holiday season lies the profound message of Christmas - the celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ. His life serves as a powerful testament to the transformative power of love, compassion and selflessness. As we enter this season of joy and goodwill, it is a good time for us to think about how blessed we all are and how we can embody the teachings of Christ, extending these virtues to friends, family and everyone we encounter.

The Christmas season is a reminder of the deep love of Christ that envelops us. This love was shown to us in the form of a humble child born in Bethlehem. The unconditional love demonstrated through Christ's birth serves as a guiding light in our path even in the darkest times.

May the spirit of Christmas fill our hearts with gratitude and joy. Whether spending time with family and friends or embarking on personal adventures, I hope that we can all carry the message of Christ's love with us. May this holiday season be a time of rest, rejuvenation, and a deepened understanding of the love that surrounds us, inspiring acts of kindness, fostering unity, and nurturing a sense of gratitude.

Wishing you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Mr Mark Hauser, College Chaplain

It is Almost That Time

As the end of another school year quickly approaches and the focus for students and families turns from school life to holidays, Christmas, and the New Year, we would like to thank all the parents and friends of the College for your valued support throughout the year.

In classrooms, on the sporting field, in cultural endeavors, and at social events your presence and assistance are much appreciated and valued by students and staff. The educational journey at Pacific is very much a journey shared between parents, staff, and students. Throughout the year, large numbers of parents have helped and supported their children, the staff, and the College Community. As the year reaches its conclusion, we would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a happy, safe, and enjoyable vacation and a blessed Christmas and New Year.

ELC to Year 5 Carols

K-5 Carols will be held this Friday 24th November at 5.00pm in the PLC Gym. Friends of Pacific will be running a BBQ from 4.30pm. Please check communication from your child’s teacher in regard to costume, arrival time, and where to meet.

Academic Excellence and Endeavour Awards will also be presented to students in Years 3-5. All parents and family members are most welcome at this important event. Morning tea will be provided for parents at the conclusion of the Ceremony.

Careers News

School Holiday Career Exploration

The school holidays are just around the corner, so it is an excellent opportunity to recharge. With less focus on academic and extracurricular pursuits, it is also a great time to reflect and reset for the new year. While you reflect and reset, it is a great time to undertake some career exploration. There are several great ways to undertake this exploration over the summer break.

Work Experience – Arrange to spend the day with someone already on the job at their workplace or perhaps develop a list of questions and interview them via phone or online. Some students have arranged a work experience and will spend a week or two with an employer exploring their future careers.

Investigating courses by visiting institutions and talking to providers about their courses. Many Universities and RTOs run campus tours over the holidays. For example:

QIMR Berghofer | Holiday Science Experience: December 5th 2023

Looking to get a taste of what it’s like working in a medical research laboratory? QIMR Berghofer hosts a one-day science experience program during the school holidays each year. Students can undertake a day of training in practical skills related to genetics, infectious disease or blood biology in our purpose-built education laboratory facilities. The program is open to Queensland high school students in years 10, 11 or 12 and is free to attend.

Getting a casual job or volunteering in your job of interest

Do an online course or undertake virtual work experience – There are great online work experience opportunities available, starting with Free Virtual Work Experience Programs from Top Companies - Forage (

Careers websites offer an alternative way of exploring options.  Pacific Lutheran College, in partnership with Study Work Grow, gives you access to Pathways Guides, Weekly Career and Higher Education News and a range of helpful tools, including a Resume Builder and Goal Generator.

Change of Preference for Students Applying for University in 2024

When you submitted your University Applications, we recommended you list your dream course(s) first, some more realistic options next, and one safe option last. This approach increased the odds of receiving at least one offer in the main round. Listing the maximum possible preferences on your applications is also a good strategy, giving you the best opportunity to receive at least one offer – or maybe more.

Sometimes, along the way, your circumstances change, and there are lots of reasons why you might like to change your preference:

  • Your ATAR was better than you expected
  • Your ATAR wasn’t as good as you had hoped for, and you’d like to ensure you get offers
  • You have had a change of heart about the ideal course or the best university for you
  • You’ve discovered a course you didn’t know about when you applied
  • You’ve been advised that the prerequisites for a course you had on your list have changed
  • The university has dropped the course you applied for
  • You’re reviewing your application, and you realise that you didn’t put your preferences in the right order

If you’re happy with your preferences, stick with them – there’s no such thing as ‘wasting’ a good ATAR. You might feel pressured into thinking you should change your list, particularly if your friends are talking about changing theirs and cut-off dates are coming up. But take a minute and spend some time researching any changes you’re thinking of making and be sure you’re making the changes for all the right reasons.

If you want to know more, lots of unis hold information days and expos around the change of preference time. It’s a great chance to get in touch and ask any questions you might have about your application. You can still contact them by phone, email, or online if they’re not holding any events.

PLC Students Accepted to Join a Youth Advisory Panel

We would like to congratulate Jessica Cronin, Nicole Hodgett, Grace Healey and Cody Walker on their acceptance to join the Youth Advisory Panel for the World's Largest Lesson.

These girls will participate in 6 Zoom calls over the next 6 months with students from 16 different countries. This Tuesday was the first of these calls and involved the girls returning to school from 8.00pm until 9.00pm to talk to Middle College students from Kenya, Canada, Wales, South Korea and South Africa.

In this call the students discussed a little bit about themselves and why they think that the UN's 17 Sustainable Development Goals (Global Goals) are something that they should be learning about and trying to achieve. We were very impressed with the involvement that these students from the other countries had already been immersed in such as visiting the United Nations and attending an event in Rome about food insecurity.

Throughout these Zoom calls our students will learn about the United Nations 2023 Climate Change Conference being held in Dubai next week. They will develop their design thinking skills and will be taught skills that will assist them in creating change in their community regarding the Global Goals.

We are very excited about this opportunity for our students and our College to be a part of tackling these worldwide issues with their peers from around the world.

Year 7 Students Visit St Mark's Church

On Sunday, several of our Year 7 students attended the St Mark's Lutheran Church service. At this service, the students spoke about the work they have been completing in their Christian Studies lessons about Silent Heroes from the Bible and in modern times. The students spoke about the importance of completing acts of service for people in their school, home and wider communities. They then proudly handed letters that many of the Year 7 students had written to members of the congregation.

Through this and many other acts of service this term, our Year 7 students have applied their learning in the classroom.

Thank you to Harry Lehmann, Aden Edwards, Zara Koebsch, Georgia Small, Sasha Kopera, Ella Fergusson and Eva Barker who were fantastic representatives from our College.

Mrs Linda Sydes, Teacher – English, Humanities

Kayaking Success

Congratulations to the 27 PLC students who represented the College at the recent Qld Schools Sprint Championships held at Coomera on 10th November.

Pacific paddlers received numerous state medals from the beginners TK1 and TK2 races and the Olympic K1 and K2 craft and placed narrowly behind Elanora State High School. The carnival finished early as a storm rolled in, which cancelled numerous medal prospects with the junior 200m yet to race.

It was a fantastic season of kayaking, winning the State Marathon School Championships earlier in the year combined with placing second at the State School Sprint Championships.

The most rewarding aspect of the season was seeing so many students participate and improve. We had several first-year paddlers do well in the TK1 events and numerous students made the transition from TK1 to K1 craft. The improvements in balance, technique and fitness were helped considerably due to the purchase of 12 new boats.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the team and crew. Thank you to Mrs Leah Croke for managing the team, Kristen Stylianou, Sarah Casement, Brendan Casement and Connor Weule for helping with the equipment on and off the water, Cooper Schwab and Brendan Casement for paddling with the students and providing water safety, Brendan Casement for transporting the kayaks to both carnivals, Mark Rantel for coaching on the water and providing outstanding technical advice to our K1 students and team boats, and Mr Sam Irwin for doing an amazing job fixing and maintaining the equipment.

I finally would like to thank all the parents for always lending a hand and for driving their children to training and both events at the Gold Coast.

2023 Sports Award

Last week we held our Junior and Senior Annual Sports Awards where we celebrated the contribution and sporting achievements of students throughout the year. We were privileged to welcome Kristy Munroe, one of Australia’s most decorated lifesavers, as our guest speaker. Kristy Munroe won state, national and world championship ironwoman crowns – all before her 21st birthday.

Students greatly valued the opportunity to hear Kristy reflect and share her experience of juggling sport and learning and all that she has achieved at such a young age in her sporting career.

Well done to all students on their participation and growth in PLC sport this year. Special congratulations to our Junior Sports Stars Jax McFadden, Scarlet van den Hurk and Lily Costa and Year 12 student, Katie Graves who was acknowledged for Excellence in Sport.

2023 has been a year of growth, with a healthy increase in Pacific students participating in sport. We acknowledge the incredible time sacrifice and support that many of our staff make in their efforts to grow and develop PLC Sport. We are grateful to the many coaches and staff who are involved in sporting teams all year round. Thank you to all Pacific students, staff and parents who have contributed to the successful year of sport.
