There was a tremendous buzz at the College this morning as over 600 people came together to celebrate the Dads and men of this community. People and particularly our Dads enjoyed the rare opportunity to come together and connect as community. The entertainment provided by our music students and food provided by our hospitality team was greatly appreciated and added to the ambience of the morning. Thank you to our Friends of Pacific for supporting our Father’s Day stall on Wednesday, to our musicians and hospitality team for sharing their skills with us and to our community for your tremendous support. Funds raised will be donated to Inclusive Kids and Sleepout For The Homeless.
After successful seasons the finals for the Pacific Football Club and PLC Netball Club are underway. We thank the Executive Committees very capably led by Mrs Rita Williams and Mrs Donna Townsend and all the coaches and managers of the teams, referees and umpires and those who helped in making it possible for our teams to play. The service of parents, students and friends of the College to our young people and this community are greatly appreciated. We congratulate all the players on their season and wish the U14B Barracudas and U12B Pacific Razors all the best for their grand finals this weekend and also to the PLC Rebels and PLC Mavericks who play their preliminary finals, hoping to join the PLC Fireballs in the grand final on the 10th of September.
Students in Years Prep – 2 showed great enthusiasm and enjoyment on Wednesday during their athletics carnival, where they were able to demonstrate their sporting skills and fitness. The excitement, encouragement and House spirit were admirable, and we congratulate our new House, Buran who was victorious. Thank you to the large number of parents, friends and family members who came to support the students and thanks to Mr Darren Hooper for his skilful organisation of the event.
Our Year 6 staff and students are looking forward to their Canberra tour next week which includes visits to Parliament House, Questacom, War Memorial and the Australian Institute of Sport. We wish them all the best as they enjoy this opportunity to grow as people and a deeper understanding of government, our history, science, sport, and life in our nation’s capital.
We say a prayer of thanks for our Dads and pray that they would know how much they are appreciated on a daily basis, within our families and our community.
Dr Bronwyn Dolling, Principal
