This week as we introduced the College Captains for 2023 at our Year 6-12 Assembly, we reflected on the example of servant leadership of Queen Elizabeth II and prayed for our incoming leaders and the gifts that our outgoing leaders had given the community.  We congratulate the Captains for 2023 and wish them God’s blessings as they transition into these important roles next term.  We thank our outgoing Captains who have been generous with their time and led our community very well.

It was heartening to hear that so many of our senior students gave up their Friday night to join the Sleep Out for the Homeless at the College to raise awareness and funds for young people who are at risk or have become homeless. The Spirituality and Service Captains led a thought-provoking devotion and reflective activity that included students sharing the things for which they were grateful.  We thank our Spirituality and Service Captains and Ms Finter for their leadership and our senior students and staff for their support of this important event.

It was a delight on Saturday to join a strong contingent of supporters to cheer on the PLC Fireballs in their grand final at the Caloundra Netball Association. Congratulations to coach Michelle Dufty and the girls who played with a high level of skill, sportsmanship and intensity to win the Division 1 final. Congratulations to Gabby Gorham who was recognised as the Junior Volunteer of the Year for the Association. We thank all players and coaches and the executive very capably led by Mrs Donna Townsend and Mr Chris Gorham for the time they have given to enable PLC Netball to have a very successful year this year. We congratulate and thank our Netball Coordinator, Mrs Michelle Dufty for her leadership and support of the ongoing growth of netball within the College.

There was a great deal of spirit at yesterday’s Year 3-6 Swimming Carnival held at Beerwah. Students enjoyed the opportunity to compete in their swimming carnival after it was postponed from the start of the year due to COVID. Well done to all students and congratulations to Mumba House who won the Spirit Award and to Wira House who were overall champions. We look forward to the Year 7-12 swimming carnival on Friday.  Thank you to Mr Darren Hooper, Mr Cameron West-McInnes and Mrs Lisa Muir for their organisation and leadership and staff and parents for their support.

Congratulations to the Junior Boys touch football team who convincingly won their grand final in the SCISSA competition last night. Well done to the boys who have continued to grow and develop over the season and thank you to coach Mr Scott Massie.

We thank all staff, students and parents for their contributions throughout this last term.  In a term filled with learning and opportunity, we have also enjoyed being able to return to gathering as a community and engage in a broader range of activities.

We say a prayer of thanks for all God has given us this term and pray that staff, students and parents are rejuvenated and refreshed through the change of rhythm that school holidays provide. May God bless us and keep us safe.
