The Power of Stillness

Taking time to breathe and be fully present in the moment can help us to recentre and refocus. By being still, our mind slows down and we can then re-engage with more thoughtful purpose and perspective. Taking time to be still in the busy rhythm of life is an important habit for us to nurture. Simple breathing routines can make a difference to our decision making, communication and effectiveness.

As we prepare for Easter, Jesus invites us to be still with Him. To sit with the promise that He walks with us and to reflect on the difference that this promise brings into our lives. He invites us to leave our failures and worries at the foot of the cross. As we look towards Easter, there is the hope and peace that comes from knowing that Jesus died and rose again for each one of us.

Principal's Log

We celebrate the team of Middle College teachers who have embarked on an exciting partnership with the researchers of the University of Queensland’s Learning Lab. The Learning Lab brings together researchers from education, psychology and neuroscience. The team will be investigating the metacognitive strategies employed by students to effectively negotiate academic challenges. Having effective metacognitive strategies that empower students to think about their own thinking enhances students’ control over their own learning, their capacity for self-regulation, and motivation for learning (Dept of Education, Victoria). We look forward to the outcomes of this project which promise to bring strong benefits to our Middle College learners and aligns strongly with one of the key intents of the College’s 2023-2026 Strategic Plan. We thank Mrs Jo Belchamber, Mrs Mel Percival, Mrs Linda Sydes, Ms Michelle McMillan and Miss Tiffany Harman for their leadership of this exciting project.

We look forward to the presentations that cyber safety expert Brett Lee will make to parents, staff and students next Tuesday 26th March. This is an ever-changing area that we all need to remain informed and proactive about to protect the personal safety of young people and ourselves. Parents are strongly encouraged to take advantage of and register for Brett Lee’s evening presentation as described later in the newsletter.

We thank our Year 12 leaders, staff and students for making the Neon Disco last Friday night such a success. The students had a lot of fun and at the same time have raised over $800 for the Australian Lutheran World Service Walk My Way – Walk For Ukraine. Families who wish to provide further support by participating in the walk in Brisbane on Saturday 11th May can find out more details via this link.

We had a very productive Friends of Pacific Meeting on Tuesday night where we considered different ways in which the Friends of Pacific could enhance student and family experience within the College. We were also excited to celebrate that Mrs Jan Watman and Mrs Jane Hill had accepted the roles of Chair and Vice Chair of the Friends of Pacific. We thank Jan and Jane for taking on these roles.

The College Open Day on Sunday 21st April and the Anzac Day March are two major upcoming events that our students have shown both respect and pride as they have supported strongly in the past. This communication acts as a date claimer and a reminder that both events will require Middle and Senior College students to wear their formal College Uniform which will require ties for Middle College boys, blazers for our Senior students and long trousers for our Senior boys.

We look forward to the Senior Student Parent Teacher Conferences next week which provide the opportunity for feedback to be shared and used for improvement of learning. We thank our Prep-Year 5 teachers, students and families for their engagement with family conferences throughout this week.

We wish our Year 5 students and staff all the best as they grow through their engagement with their weeklong Outdoor Education experience next week. We thank Mr Paul Brace, Mrs Sharon Middleton, Mrs Kim Kiernan, Mr Scott Crompton,

Mrs Lu Pollard, Mr Rob Belchamber, Mr Jacob Graham and Ms Zoe Brewer for their leadership through the preparation and running of this important experience.

We pray that God would speak, guide, encourage and empower us to grow through moments of stillness with Him.

Starting Sharp

Pacific Lutheran College Uniform

As Term 1 draws to a close and we prepare to embark on a new term with cooler days on the way, it is important to reinforce the significance of students adhering to the Pacific Lutheran College Uniform Policy and Guidelines. Our uniform not only represents our College’s identity, it also creates a sense of belonging and pride for our community. As we commence Term 2, we are committed to looking sharp and feeling sharp.

Lost Uniforms?

Where students may have misplaced their uniforms this term, please connect with either the Prep-Year 5 Junior Administration or Years 6-12 Wellbeing Centre. It is important that hats and all uniforms items are clearly labelled and identifiable. 

Uniform Purchases through Flexischool App

To streamline uniform purchases, we encourage parents to utilise Flexischools app. This platform offers a convenient way to order uniforms online, ensuring a hassle-free process. Outgrown uniforms can also be repurposed through the College’s Uniform Shop.

Transitioning to Winter Uniform – Term 2

With the arrival of the cooler months, it is time for families to prepare for the change to the Winter Uniform. This change will be communicated to families during Term 2. As the temperatures drop, students are reminded to wear the Formal Winter uniform correctly and to not mismatch Summer and Winter uniforms, in accordance to the uniform guidelines. Year 12 Senior Jerseys are only permitted to be worn with Sports uniform on specified days.

The Formal Winter uniform not only provides warmth for the cooler months, but maintains the professionalism and standards expected within our College community.

Additional Uniform Information

Returning from holidays also means return to College wide expectations of jewellery, make-up, hair and eyelashes. Families are encouraged to familiarise themselves with specific uniform expectations. If students, parents or community members have any questions or concerns regarding uniform expectations and guidelines, please do not hesitate to contact the College for further information.

As we approach Term 2, we embrace our College uniform with pride and continue to demonstrate our commitment to presenting sharp. Thank you for your support.

Guarding ourselves with a shield

Junior assemblies at Pacific are designed to provide a rich learning opportunity that provides scaffolding for our young people to learn about themselves and how their interactions may be shaped or moulded when working with others. Our Pacific Way statement about how we work with others highlights the need to “listen, value difference and celebrate other’s potential.”

Part of this learning journey also involves solving problems and what to do when we make a mistake.

At this week’s Prep-Year 2 Assembly, I spoke of how we use “shields” to either protect ourselves or to avoid possible impacts of our behaviors. In Junior College when we speak of a shield, we are suggesting that when things go wrong, we protect ourselves with half-truths, blaming others or not accepting our part in the problem. This shield feels good to us as it creates a sense of safety, but by not being entirely honest and deflecting, we are not reaching the heart of the problem, hence delaying resolution. 

Mrs Ridey and Mrs Hogan also shared some important reminders that may help us to solve a problem and restore the relationship with our friends.

·       Make sure you are calm enough to talk

·       Listen to each other (Do not focus on being right)

·       Try to understand the other person’s side of the story

·       Try and find a solution that makes everyone happy not just you

When empowering our students to solve problems, we encourage our students that by “dropping our shield”, trust is formed as we own our behaviour and acknowledge the harm it has caused. By telling the whole story, admitting our part, and accepting responsibility, we are rebuilding the trust, to be honest with ourselves moving forward. Restoration and forgiveness provide the platform from which to understand our imperfections and move toward acknowledging them and rebuilding relationships.

Outdoor Education, Gawun and the Year 5 Leaders

Next week, as leaders of the Junior College, our Year 5 cohort will attend their Outdoor Education Program. Students will be exposed to concepts around leadership, group dynamics and their agency to help and serve others. As leaders of our Junior College, students are responsible for growing their leadership skills to benefit themselves and others.

This land’s traditional custodians, the Kabi-Kabi People, have a name for care or care for, Gawun. It is hoped that our Year 5 leaders can exhibit ‘Gawun’ for our College community and grow as leaders and people through a concentrated focus. You may have noticed our Year 5 leaders moving among our Junior College and adding a level of guidance to the younger students in the classroom and our play spaces.

Future planning involves building on the work established by previous cohorts and identifying critical areas within the Junior College that would benefit from additional support. Through further discussion, we hope to move to house-based leadership activities that create a pathway for our students to flow into leadership opportunities that exist in the Middle and Senior College.

Our students and teaching staff have been involved in the process from the start, and it has been wonderful to see agency and teamwork in action. We thank Mr Paul Brace, Head of Outdoor Education, for planning and coordinating this experience and the many staff that will attend the program that allow the students to be involved in such a rich learning opportunity. 

College Disco

Last Friday the College gym was awash with neon and fluro in many shapes and sizes as Years 4-9 students danced and grooved as the College disco took place. DJ Candi led the students through an energetic experience and a fantastic time was had by all. Thank you to the many staff that attended and also to the Middle and Senior leaders that supported the disco, in the lead up to as well as on the night.

Take care and God Bless

College News


A team of Middle College teachers have embarked on an exciting year-long partnership with researchers from the University of Queensland’s Learning Lab to investigate Middle College students’ learning at Pacific Lutheran College.

UQ’s Learning Lab involves researchers from across the scientific disciplines of education, psychology, and neuroscience. The collective aim of the Learning Lab is to convert research into practice in Pacific classrooms. The Learning Lab uses the lens of the Science of Learning research to connect cognitive neuroscience and teaching practice to improve student learning outcomes.

Mrs Melanie Percival (Year 6 teacher), Mrs Linda Sydes (Year 7 teacher), Ms Michelle McMillan (Year 8 teacher), Miss Tiffany Harman (Year 9 teacher) and Mrs Jo Belchamber (Head of Learning Middle College) will take on the role of teachers as researchers to investigate the power of self-regulated learning, in particular metacognition, across Years 6-9 classrooms. The research focus will be on the metacognitive strategies employed by students as they face academic challenges, investigating the extent to which challenge activates and supports positive metacognitive strategies, like goal setting.

This exploratory project is based on the Science of Learning research that changes in the brain during pre-adolescence and adolescence provide opportunity to establish neural pathways that enhance student responses to academic challenge.

Through this approach, we aim to assist our Middle College students to develop the intellectual dispositions of the Pacific Lutheran College’s Four Pillars of Learning.

Mrs Jo Belchamber, Head of Learning Middle College

Senior Drama Production 2024

‘SENSE and SENSIBILITY’ – Jane Austen Re-Wired!

A playful new adaptation of Jane Austen’s novel will be performed at The Events Centre in May. The play follows the fortunes (and misfortunes) of the Dashwood Sisters – sensible Elinor and hypersensitive Marianne – after their father’s death leaves them financially destitute and socially vulnerable.

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!

Friday 17th May at 12noon and 7.30pm and Saturday 18th May at 1.00pm and 7.30pm

Tickets on Sale from 10am Tuesday 16th April (Week 1, Term 2)

Junior Strings Success

We were excited to welcome renowned strings composer, Ms Loreta Fin OAM, to Pacific to work with our Junior Strings Ensemble on two of her compositions. Loreta lead our students in three separate rehearsals, one being a Saturday where students joined with students from other schools on the coast as well as the Sunshine Coast Youth Orchestra to perform in a finale concert. The combined string group of over 85 musicians was inspiring to be a part of. We congratulate all Pacific Musicians who took part in Loreta’s workshops. A special mention to the 13 students who also played on Saturday and showcased a piece that only Pacific had been learning – Well done! Thank you to Loreta for visiting the College and sharing your talent and passion for music.
