Compass No 719 - April 2024

From the Principal

We Will Remember Them

Through participation in the ANZAC Day March and College services and activities, our community has joined with the Australian community to remember the sacrifices of our Defence Personnel and their families. As we engaged in the remembrances, we expressed our gratitude for the sacrifices of our Defence Personnel and their families and the freedoms their service has given.

As we remembered, we reflected on the values of courage, sacrifice and mateship. We honour that sacrifice by valuing each day, and the great blessing we have to live in peace in a land of abundance.  We show our respect for their sacrifice by being grateful and making the most of our time and gifts to improve the lives of others.

We will remember them.

Principal's Log

We commend our students and staff on the way they have shown their respect through high levels of participation in the Caloundra RSL March, other activities across the Sunshine Coast yesterday and through our Anzac Day services at the College on Wednesday. At the conclusion of the Caloundra RSL Wreath laying ceremony, Mr Steve Eaton (OAM) expressed his appreciation for the role that students of all schools and our Marching Band played in remembering the service of Defence Personnel.  Staff and students valued Mr Eaton's explanation of the meaning of the Ode, the Last Post, and the Reveille and Mr. Adam Jackson’s reflections about his time as a serviceman in Australia and Afghanistan at our College services on Wednesday. We thank Mr Eaton and Mr Jackson for their service and thought provoking messages. We thank Chaplain Mark Hauser for leadership of our services, Cadet’s Hayden Hurford and Archie Palmer and students, staff and parents for their respectful engagement in Anzac Day activities.


Our students also played a tremendous role in welcoming new families into our community at our Open Day on Sunday. Over 200 students across Years 5-12 volunteered to lead tours throughout the afternoon. Students also played important roles as part of ensemble groups, shared snippets of the upcoming Year 8-12 production of Sense and Sensibility, played in music ensemble groups, supported the hospitality department in providing very tasty food and beverages and led activities in various subject displays. The Friends of Pacific team added to the welcome of the afternoon through provision of a BBQ. It was a very successful day, despite the wet weather where a very large number of new families enjoyed the opportunity to connect with community as they learnt more about the approaches to learning and the opportunities available at the College. We thank all students, staff and parents for making the afternoon such a success.


Last Friday we enjoyed staging our Year 3-6 and Year 7-12 Cross Country events. There were high levels of participation and spirit at both events with students, staff and parents enjoying the new course layout and the sunshine. We congratulate all students on their participation, Wira House who won both carnivals and Wira and Bula for winning the Year 3-6 and Year 7-12 Spirit Awards respectively. We thank Mr Darren Hooper, Mr Cameron West McInnes and Mrs Lisa Muir for their overall leadership and all staff, students and parents for making the day such a success. We wish all those students representing the College in the upcoming Independent District Cross Country all the best.

Parents and students who access Meridan Fields to travel to and from school and for sporting activities are reminded that there are anticipated road and pedestrian pathway closures that will restrict the access of pedestrians and cyclists to Meridan Way from 30th April to 2nd  May.  Details of closures and how to obtain transport vouchers as a result of these works by Unity Water are contained later in this newsletter and have been emailed home on Friday the 19th of April.


We say a prayer of thanks for the service of our Defence Personnel and their families and that God would protect and care for them. We pray for all those impacted by war, conflict and division and that God would cater for their needs and bring peace.

No Greater Love

My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you.

Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.

John 15:12

This week, on ANZAC Day, we pause to remember and honour the brave men and women who have served and sacrificed for our country. It is a day that holds deep significance for Australians and New Zealanders alike—a day to reflect on the values of courage, mateship, and sacrifice.

In John 15, Jesus speaks of the greatest love of all, laying down one's life for another. This concept lies at the heart of ANZAC Day. The willingness to sacrifice one's life for the greater good is the ultimate expression of love, demonstrating a profound commitment to others.

War is a very real reminder of both the best and worst aspects of human nature. It brings out the worst in us—hatred, violence, and destruction. But it also has the power to bring out the best in us—courage, selflessness, and sacrifice. The ANZACs exemplified these virtues in the face of tragedy and significant adversity.

Think of the countless ANZACs who, in the midst of battle, demonstrated extraordinary acts of bravery and sacrifice. Take, for example, the story of Simpson and his donkey at Gallipoli. Private John Simpson Kirkpatrick, alongside his donkey, tirelessly transported wounded soldiers to safety under heavy fire. Despite the grave danger, he continued his rescue missions until he was tragically killed. Simpson's selfless actions epitomize the spirit of sacrifice that defines the ANZAC legacy.

Just as the sacrifice of the ANZACs was freely given and undeserved, so too is the grace extended to us by God. We did not earn it, nor do we deserve it, yet it is freely given out of love. The ultimate sacrifice of Jesus Christ on the cross is the epitome of this grace—the perfect expression of love poured out for us, unworthy though we may be.

So, as we reflect on the significance of the ANZAC spirit and the contributions that countless soldiers made to give us a significantly better life, we can also remember the words Jesus gave to us and demonstrated through his sacrifice: "Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends."

The sacrifices made by the ANZACs will not be forgotten because of the significance of their Christ-like sacrifice. We honour these heroes by living lives of love, sacrifice, and grace.

Lest we forget.

Mr Mark Hauser, College Chaplain

Building a national picture of child health-of children in their first year of full-time school

From May 2024, our school, along with thousands of others across the country, will participate in the Australian Early Development Census (AEDC). The AEDC is a teacher-completed census (similar to a questionnaire) which provides a comprehensive picture of how children have developed by the time they start their first year of full-time school.

The AEDC is an Australian Government Initiative and is completed nationally every three years. Children don’t miss any class time while the AEDC is completed, and parents/carers don’t need to supply schools with any new information. The data collected through the AEDC is used by schools, communities and governments to better understand children and families’ needs, and identify the services, resources and support they need.

AEDC data is reported at a school, community, state/territory and national level. AEDC results for individual children are not reported and the AEDC is not used as an individual diagnostic tool. Some teachers have found that completing the AEDC made them more aware of the needs of individual children and their class, and that the data was useful for planning for transitions to Year 1 and developing programs.Participation in the AEDC is voluntary, however the AEDC relies on all schools with children in their first year of full-time school participating in the collection. Parents/carers don’t need to take any action unless they choose not to include their children in the census.

To find out more about the AEDC and how it is being used to help children and families visit: you have any questions, you can contact Mrs Sue Zweck –

Exploring Nature – A Wellbeing Masterstroke

In today's fast-paced and technology-driven world, the importance of connecting with nature cannot be overstated, especially when it comes to our children's well-being. Research increasingly shows that spending time outdoors has profound benefits for young people, impacting their physical health, mental clarity, emotional resilience, and overall happiness.

Physical Health Boost

Engaging in outdoor activities like hiking, playing in parks, or simply exploring natural environments helps children stay active. This physical activity is essential for their development, promoting stronger muscles and bones, better coordination, and a healthier immune system. Exposure to sunlight also supports the body's production of Vitamin D, crucial for bone strength and immune function.

Mental Clarity and Focus

Nature offers a respite from the constant stimuli of screens and urban life. The calming effect of nature has been shown to lower stress levels, leading to improved concentration and better academic performance.

Emotional Wellbeing

Nature has a profound impact on emotional health. Outdoor activities provide opportunities for exploration, creativity, and imagination, fostering a sense of wonder and curiosity in children. Being surrounded by green spaces and fresh air can reduce feelings of worry and sadness, promoting a more positive outlook on life.

Building Resilience

Nature offers unique challenges and opportunities for risk-taking in a controlled environment. This helps children develop resilience and problem-solving skills. Whether climbing trees, building forts, or navigating trails, these experiences teach valuable lessons about perseverance and self-confidence.

Family Bonding

Lastly, nature provides an excellent backdrop for family bonding. Exploring the outdoors together creates lasting memories and strengthens relationships.

Incorporating regular outdoor time into your child's routine can make a world of difference. Whether it's a weekend hike, a visit to the beach, or even playing in the backyard, let's encourage our children to embrace the wonders of nature for their holistic wellbeing.

Happy Exploring!

Connecting College and Community

We have a busy term with many opportunities for families to come together, meet new families or re-connect and support our community by volunteering at the school events. We will be calling for volunteers throughout the term.


 Our first event is our Mother’s Day stall on Tuesday 7th May 2024.

Volunteers are needed for times between 7:30am – Noon,  with 1 or 2 hours of help needed. Volunteers can help set up the stall and then help our students choose items for their special Mum, Grandma, Aunt, or special lady in their lives.


This is an excellent opportunity for fellowship between volunteers, a rewarding way to support our PLC community and of course a fun morning meeting the students.

Friends of Pacific would like to invite those who have successfully completed the volunteer registration process to join.

If you are interested please register on below link and the team will be in touch to provide further details.

Years 3-6 Cross Country Carnival

 A break in the unrelenting rain that we have seen for the first part of this year, greeted us with clear blue skies and great weather conditions for the annual Years 3-6 Interhouse Cross Carnival held last Friday morning. Construction work to the entrance of the Meridan Sporting complex also saw a change to the course this year with both the start and the finish situated on the College’s Main Oval. It appeared that this led to an increase in spectator engagement with parents and students up close to both the start and finish areas to cheer the runners on.

Well done to Wira house who were awarded the Spirit Trophy for some outstanding cheering and house spirit they displayed throughout the carnival. Wira were also crowned the overall champion house at the end of the carnival.

House results at the end of the carnival were as follows:


Wira      1st -  343
