It has been great to see the community’s response to the Red Shield Appeal so far. Through these small gifts we can make a difference to many people in our local community. The Pacific community plays a very key role in enabling the Salvation Army to provide support to families and individuals in need. Thank you for your support so far.
Well done to our primary and secondary Robotics teams who performed well at the RoboCoast Sumo Competition at Mountain Creek this week. There were more than 130 teams competing on the day from more than 25 schools. Three of our secondary teams reached the finals and we congratulate the team of Julian Schirripa (Year 7) and Liam Brown (Year 7) who came second to senior students from Chancellor State College. Well done to all students and thank you to Mrs Janine Stone, Mr Steven Healy and Mr Damian Davis for their leadership of our primary and secondary Robotics teams.
Thank you to parents, students and staff who took the opportunity to enhance student learning through engagement in the Senior College Conferences this week. These conferences are an important part of the learning process for young people and we look forward to the Middle College Conferences next week. We thank Mrs Rae Hall and Ms Sue Arahill for their coordination.
Our Year 3 to 6 students enjoyed the opportunity to compete in their Athletics Carnival on Wednesday. All reports were that the students participated with great spirit and sportsmanship. We thank Mrs Allyson Sarvari and the Friends of Pacific for providing the BBQ and Mr Darren Hooper and Mrs Natalie Campbell for their overall organisation of the carnival.
The winter uniform starts next Monday. Further details of the dress requirements are included directly following my article.
We wish all of our mothers a Happy Mother’s Day on Sunday. Our mums play a special role in our families and in the life of the College. We give thanks for all you do for this community and hope that you all have a very special day on Sunday.
We say a prayer of thanks for our Mums and wish them God’s richest blessing.
Dr Bronwyn Dolling, Principal
