Compass No 715 - March 2024

From the Principal

Assume Best Intentions

One of the keys to living well is to be immersed in cultures of trust in our families, friendships, places of learning, workplaces and churches. One of the protocols that is often sighted in the promotion of building effective teams, groups and collaboration is to assume that people are acting or speaking with best intentions. Interacting with this assumption opens our minds to considering the why and to exploring more deeply the thoughts or values being held. It opens us up to thinking more from a strength rather than a deficit perspective and invites people to step into the productive space of solution finding. Trust is built as different perspectives and ideas are shared openly and honestly. Where we operate in a world of trust, relationships are strengthened, capability is grown and hope flourishes.

This encouragement to assume best intentions is also contained within Luther’s explanation of the 8th commandment which is “not to give false testimony against your neighbour”. In his explanation, Luther explains that this means that we are to “put the best construction on everything”. Luther advocates that we “defend, speak well of and explain everything in the kindest way”. God wants us to build each other up and to live with hope and trust filled relationships. God reminds us of our constant mutual need for His grace. He encourages us to live with the grace filled courage to bring the best construction into our thinking, words and actions.

Principal's Log

On Friday of this week, we conduct our Pacific As A Peace Place audit, where students across Years 3-12 are invited to reflect on pastoral care and support processes within the College. This audit also presents students with the opportunity to provide feedback about their feeling of safety for themselves and their peers and their general engagement with the community. This anonymous survey is an important means for us to provide the space for all students to be heard and to identify those things that are going well and where changes may need to be considered. We have valued the thoughtful feedback provided by students in the past and encourage our Year 3-12 students to take this opportunity to play their part in enhancing a culture of trust at the College where all people are free to flourish.

We will also be inducting our Prep-Year 12 parent connectors at next week's Prep-Year 5 Chapel and we celebrate their willingness to build community where the assumption of best intentions are at the forefront. We thank them for their willingness to build community that promotes strong trust filled connections where people can thrive.

This week our Year 3, 5, 7 and 9 students have been engaging well with NAPLAN testing. It has been pleasing to see the way that students have engaged with the process and we thank our IT, Learning Enrichment and Heads of Learning Mrs Sue Zweck (K-5), and Mrs Jo Belchamber (Middle College) for the tremendous amount of work to organise and conduct these tests in a calm and well prepared way. We look forward to using the data generated as one additional piece of data to reflect on individual and cohort progress.

In the coming week, Prep-Year 5 parents, students and staff will have the opportunity to meet as the part of the student led conferences that celebrate the learning progress of young people and plan for next steps in their Pacific learning journey. It is exciting to see the potential for growth as students have the opportunity to use their agency to lead these discussions. I would encourage all Prep - Year 5 families to have read Mrs Sue Zweck’s article in this newsletter prior to the conferences.

May God equip each of us to assume the best intentions and to seek to put the best construction on everything, through our thoughts, words and actions.

Dr Bronwyn Dolling, Principal

Honesty is the Best Policy

There is a popular reality TV show called “The Mole” which my wife and I stumbled across on Netflix one day. The premise of the show is that a group of contestants (who are randomly selected and have never met before) are dropped in a location overseas. Contestants are required to work through team challenges to accumulate as much money as they can. However, within the team there is ‘a mole’ who is trying to lose the team as much money as they can. At the end of each episode, contestants must vote on who they believe is the mole. Whoever gets the greatest number of votes, is removed from the game (and cannot win the prize money).

Although it is a very engaging series, the whole concept is fraught with chaos! Can you imagine what it would be like questioning and analysing each person’s every move? You would question every decision they make and their motives for it. Are they acting like the mole to fool people; or are they really the mole? Other than yourself, who could you trust in this situation?

We have all heard (and probably most of us have used) the term ‘honesty is the best policy’ before in our lives. Although it is a common-sense phrase and we would all agree with it, often, when we are faced with difficult or compromising situations, it is a lot harder to put into practice than what it might sound like in theory.

There is very good reason why Jesus talks to us about the importance of honesty and integrity. It is almost a universal requirement in people of any culture, to have a properly functioning society. After all, without trust there is only chaos and deceit.

You would think then that Jesus’s followers would be some of the most honest and trustworthy people, right? Well, you could not be further from the truth. The disciples let Jesus down with their lack of faith and understanding, time and time again.

In Luke 22, Peter (one of Jesus’s closest disciples) lied publicly by denying that he knew Jesus. After walking with and learning from Jesus for years, when the situation became a little too serious for him, Peter forgot all about honesty being the best policy and told people that he did not know Jesus (as Jesus had just been sentenced to death). Jesus even told Peter that that’s what he would do!

Just like Peter, we all make mistakes. However, that doesn’t mean that we are beyond the grace of God. In fact, it just means that we are human beings with free will! The good news is that God loves us no matter what, and when we return to Him and acknowledge our faults, forgiveness is extended, and when we do this, God can even use us more than what he can even imagine. Just like he did with Peter.

After realising his (humiliating) mistake, Peter was forgiven. But not only that, Jesus used Peter to establish the first Church and go out into the world, telling everyone about the Good News of Jesus.

Honesty really is the best policy for us. However, when we don’t follow that (to our own detriment) we are fortunate to have a God who loves us enough to help us when we fall. And that is good news!

Student Led Conferences 2024

At Pacific, our student-led conferences are similar to parent-teacher conferences, but the student is present and in charge of leading the discussion.

  • The teacher acts as a facilitator for the discussion
  • The student presents their work and guides the discussion
  • The parents listen and speak with their child about his or her academic and social progress and needs

These conferences allow students to be a part of the conversation about their academic and social goals and are an opportunity to discuss how the teacher and parents can help their child succeed.

The agenda for the discussion focuses on:

  • Their strengths
  • What their goals are
  • What they’re proud of
  • Where they still need to develop

Student-led conferences encourage students to think critically about their abilities and achievements and help students develop skills they’ll use long after they’ve finished school.

The Benefits of Student Led Conferences are:

  1. Increased Parent Involvement
  2. Boosted Student Confidence and Engagement
  3. A better picture of student achievement
  4. More information for teachers

In Prep – Year 5 our Student Led Conferences will be held in Week 9. You will be sent a link to book a time to meet with your child’s teacher. We look forward to seeing you! Thanks so much for supporting your child.

Set in ‘gossipy’ late 18th Century England, the play is full of humour, emotion and bold theatricality. Come and see our talented cast, authentic costumes and amazing set. Be swept into the world of Jane Austen, where social position, wealth, the prospect for marriage (and a healthy dose of gossip) meant everything!

Sunshine Coast Lightning players were at the courts last Saturday, and some of our girls showing their support for the team.

The second grading round is this weekend, Saturday 16th March, with the time allocations swapping around so the SET, GO and Division 8 – 11 playing earlier games and Divisions 1 – 7 games commencing from late morning.
