We Made it!

Well, that was a year with a difference.  Certainly, not even close to what we could have probably dreamed up in January.  But, it has been a very telling and affirming year for the strength of our Prince of Peace community.  In some ways, ‘community’ has been more difficult due to the distance and loss of interaction the year has brought with it.  But, in many other ways, it has given ample opportunities for community to come to the fore.  While 2020 has been a hard year for many, I think we can and should be proud of the way that it has also allowed us to perhaps be a little more aware of those around us and the ways in which we can look out for and support each other.  Our community has continued to demonstrate how well it does that time and time again, and I thank you all – parents, staff and students, for your part in that.

 Farewell to Staff

As we reach the end of the school year, I would like to acknowledge the staff that are leaving our community and thank them, on behalf of the College, for their tireless and dedicated service and all they have done for our students during their time at Prince of Peace.

  • Nathanael Brinkmann completes his contract as a Senior Campus teacher
  • Lyndell Burden (Defence School Mentor) completes her contract
  • Pat Corbin is moving on to a new challenge after 8 years’ service to the College
  • Clayton Eiby concludes his 29 years of service to our community
  • Charlotte Ellem finishes as homework coordinator on the Senior Campus to pursue her studies further
  • Bruce Hardy completes his contract as a Senior Campus teacher
  • Janette Meulen is semi-retiring after 16 years of dedicated service to the College
  • Nadine Richardson completes her contract as a Junior Campus teacher
  • Heath Stewart and his family are moving for a ‘sea change’, after 5 years’ service
  • Zac Von Hoff is moving on to a new challenge after 10 years’ service to the College
  • Brad Wooding, who has been on a year’s leave in 2020, officially completes his time at the College after 11 years

 

As we head into our Christmas season and holidays, I pray that you enjoy and cherish the time you get to spend with your children and, hopefully, many of your friends and family.  As we celebrate the birth of our Saviour, may God also bless your time as a family, and I look forward to seeing you all in the new year.

Matthew 2:11 On coming to the house, they saw the child with his mother Mary, and they bowed down and worshiped him.  Then they opened their treasures and presented him with gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh.

Hampers of Hope

Some of the generous donations we have received – thanks parents and carers!

2020 has been a year like no other! As we emerge from the isolation, the restrictions and the worry, we are reminded of how blessed we truly are to live in this amazing part of the world. In so many ways our lives are filled with joy and most importantly, HOPE! As we begin the journey into advent soon, and prepare to celebrate the HOPE that came through the birth of Jesus Christ, we wanted to share the message of love, peace and especially hope with those less fortunate than us, those who have fallen on hard times, and those who are still struggling to emerge from 2020.

As the Prince of Peace communities (Kindy, OSHC, College and Church) we will be preparing a series of hampers to hand out to families in our community who are in need this Christmas. We hope to fill the ‘Hampers of Hope’ with a variety of treats that could help make a family’s Christmas a little bit special. We are asking families in our community to donate an item or items toward these hampers over the next two weeks. Included below is a list of suggested items for each year level to champion.

If you have a desire to donate other special items to this cause, you are certainly most welcome to do so. Some other possible items could be: basic ‘back to school’ items such as a packet of colouring pencils or felt pens, a small toy (eg matchbox car, teddy), or even a washer and soap.

Prince of Peace communities are stronger together. Our resilience has shone through during this difficult year, and importantly, our love and care for each other helped get us over the line. Now it’s our turn to share that same hope with others in need.

All donations are due by Friday 27 November and can be dropped into the collection baskets in your child’s classroom or at either campus Reception. We commend this service project to your hearts and thank you for your support and prayers. In His service and the service of others!

When ‘Thank You!’ Just Doesn’t Seem Enough!

Every now and then there are times in my life when I find myself standing in complete awe of people. I am mesmerised by what they have achieved, or what they have overcome, by what they have created and driven forward, or by how they handle the most challenging of circumstances with grace and dignity. In 2020, I have felt this emotion time and time again.

Through the unknown and unexpected onset of the global COVID-19 pandemic to the settling in to a more regular (if slightly restricted) rhythm of life, I have witnessed some extraordinary growth, incredible success over adversity and highly flexible thinking. What has struck me the most is the depth and breadth of ages who have stood side by side, faced the storm and come out swinging on the other side.

When I talk about Prince of Peace being a special place it is precisely these things that I am talking about. As we wave goodbye to 2020 and the rollercoaster it gave us, let us remember the countless examples of service that bubbled to the surface.

First let’s remember our parents, who were supporting other parents with online learning, sharing daily timetables, movement break ideas and generally lending support. They were the champions of their children and the tech-support team in the room. In the quiet moments, they were also those silently weeping, questioning their capacity to continue and stealing moments of rest in the mayhem. They were cheering each other on, laughing together and crying together, but in all things, they were surviving it together. Yet, as if this wasn’t enough, when they had a spare moment (and I’m not sure when they truly did), they were baking for the teachers, cooking meals, buying coffees, delivering flowers and praying for our staff. Their hearts of service, generosity and compassion overflowed and filled our College to the brim.

Next let’s remember our staff or is that our Remote Learning Yodas or our Extreme Spontaneous Change Agents and Diverse and Flexible Visionaries. No words quite describe what ‘being a teacher’ meant in 2020, but let’s try to give it a go. The staff of Prince of Peace are second to none and exhibited some of the most flexible and agile thinking and learning I have ever seen. Their ability to adapt to their surroundings and the sometimes daily shifting sands of our COVID-world was breathtaking to behold.

To be able to flick a switch in your thinking and pivot from face to face teaching to face to remote teaching to remote teaching was difficult, time consuming and so far out of the box of what anyone ever expected in their roles that it beggars belief… yet they did it. In five days they completely overhauled their planning, their content delivery systems, their technology skill sets, their communication methods and I suspect, their sleep patterns. They spent hours considering each child, seeking to foreshadow possible hurdles, emotional struggles and content delivery issues. They gave very special care and consideration to our parents who had to step into the role of home educator/ full time worker/ parent/ cleaner/ cook.

They prayed for their support staff who would take on the immense load of supporting students who were learning remotely, at school. Our bus drivers became our COVID safe cleaners too. Year level teachers ran technology boot camps on repeat to support staff, and business office workers sourced, within an ever diminishing supply, the necessary video cameras, tripods and devices needed to sustain such a change.

What stood out through it all were the hearts of service, generosity and compassion they had for each other, and for their students and families. There was a coming together—although we were physically being pulled apart.

Last and certainly not least, let us remember our students—our resilient, adaptable, flexible and determined students. When I think of the qualities our students have demonstrated during 2020 words such as courage, dedication, tenacity, creativity, reflection, collaboration, agility and autonomy come to mind. They have been our shining lights during COVID-19, our motivators, our hearts.

They have shown us their immense capacity to grow and adjust to their changing environment. Their diverse and beautiful personalities came to life during our Zoom meetings, as we met their pets, toured their houses and dressed up in costumes and pyjamas for FLEX@POP. In a word, they were TREMENDOUS!

Their cheerful voices over our Zoom calls, in our classrooms and around the playground resounded with compassion, joy and generosity. In their own ways they have given their hearts of service to 2020.

As we all wave goodbye to 2020, and as our Social Media feeds fill with COVID memories in years to come, I pray that above all else we remember those people in our Prince of Peace community who made it not only bearable, but made it an environment where so many could thrive, serve and laugh—our parents, our staff and our students.

Be blessed and know that you are a blessing to others,

They Came, They Battled and We conquered!

Last week the Junior Campus was overrun in a sea of Maroon and Blue as supporters young and old bravely showed their colours. Our State of Origin free dress is always a special occasion for our staff, students and families. This year, we are delighted to say that as well as Queensland winning, we were able to raise $433.80 for the Starlight Foundation. Thank you to everyone who made this day so much fun and so memorable.

Dancing in the Rain

Some members of the Class of 2019

Last week we celebrated with the Year 12 students, providing them with a memorable opportunity to celebrate their final official week of school with their cohort. Rather than completing the year with a staggered finish (where students each finish after their last exam), they instead returned in Week 7 for some life lessons that included:

  • A celebration of what they have achieved
  • Spending time with each other, and their Year 7 and Year 1 buddies
  • Getting some advice from the Class of 2019
  • Finalising their QTAC applications and post-school options
  • Learning about being a responsible driver
  • Getting some advice from the Police
  • Learning to sew by making “Hearts of Hope” for the 1000 Heart Project
  • Learning their Year 12 Graduation song
  • Learning to dance

In my message to Year 12, I reflected on the year that they had experienced, explaining that their challenge in 2020 has been to learn to ‘dance in the rain’. For those at the Valedictory on Thursday night (or perhaps witnessed on Facebook), they have certainly learnt that lesson to ‘dance in the rain!’…and these are the same students who when told that we were have dancing lessons, exclaimed ‘surely that’s optional!’  We are so proud of the Class of 2020 and how they have demonstrated resilience and flexibility to endure/embrace the challenges that 2020 has thrown at them. We wish them God’s richest blessing for their next chapters. Please enjoy the photos below, and follow these links to visit photo galleries capturing some of their celebrations.

Prep to Year 12 Students

On Monday, Year 12 enjoyed the opportunity to visit the Junior Campus to visit their Year 1 buddies.  The followoing day we celebrated with those students who have travelled their entire educational journey through Prince of Peace, by enjoying a special morning tea with them—something we like to acknowledge each year.

Turia Pitt Award

2020 has not been without its challenges and we wish to acknowledge a student who has demonstrated grit and the resilience to pursue excellence. We named this new award after Turia Pitt, whose life was turned upside-down when during 2011 she was trapped by a grassfire in a 100 kilometre ultra-marathon—suffering burns to 65 per cent of her body. The Turia Pitt award recognises perseverance, integrity, tenacity and talent. We reached out to Turia for her blessing to name an award after her.  She very graciously agreed and was very humbled and honoured by the award, sending her well wishes to the Prince of Peace community.

We congratulate Year 12 student, Samuel Luff, for being our inaugural recipient of the Turia Pitt award.  Samuel is an outstanding athlete and sports person who has competed at the national level in multiple disciplines of both athletics, and cycling. He has demonstrated resilience and a willingness and tenacity to develop his talent in the face of adversity, by returning from serious injury to compete at this elite level.

Staff, Students and Parents—A Huge Thanks to You All

We thank our dedicated staff for all their efforts in 2020.  It has been a strange year, and whilst the petrol tank is close to empty for many, our staff have continued to be inspiring educators and supporters.  We congratulate the students on their achievements in 2020, they have run a marathon this year—the race is almost up and it is almost time to deservedly celebrate.  We thank all of our parents and extended families for their continued support.  We also thank Mr Zachary Von Hoff, Mrs Patricia Corbin, Mr Heath Stewart, Mr Nathanael Brinkmann and Mr Bruce Hardy for their dedication and service and we wish them well in their next chapter.

As we celebrate the Christmas season we are reminded of Isaiah 9:6:

For to us a child is born,
to us a son is given,
And he will be called
Wonderful Counsellor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

May you have the gift of faith, the blessing of hope and the peace of His love at Christmas and always.

May God’s blessing go with us today,
At the end of this school year we pray.
That you keep us safe and give us rest
So we start again renewed and refreshed.
Full of health, full of fun
Ready to come and learn again.

May God’s blessing go with us today,
As we begin our school holiday.
Give your peace and your joy,
To every girl and every boy.
Help the teachers to enjoy the break,
and prepare and plan for the new intake.

May God’s blessings await us next year,
To embrace each new challenge without fear.
Fill this school with your love,
and guide our hearts from above.
Full of faith, full of hope,
full of joy, and full of love.

Amen.

Head of Senior Campus

Rachael King Book Donation to Senior Campus Library

Late last week the Senior Campus Library was blessed to receive a copy of Pattern Pulse by Rachael King, author of this beautiful book. Pattern Pulse showcases the beautiful artwork that adorns the surfaces of everyday objects and surfaces we come in contact with each day, the book will be invaluable to our art and design students and any student interested in reading about great Australian design.  We would like to thank Rachael for her kind donation.

Touch Football Season

We are nearing the end of the Arana Junior Touch season. A couple of our teams played their final games last Wednesday, most will have one more game this week, and a couple of teams, if they win, will have one more game next week. It has been a ‘learning season’ for our 95 players—most of whom had not played before. To field nine teams across Junior and Senior Campuses was beyond expectations. Our teams have become more competitive, with increasingly favourable scorelines as the season progressed. A huge thanks to our volunteer coaches and teacher/parent supervisors for giving their time: Rachel Denning, Malize Montgomery, Nathan Geale, Megan Danslow, Steve Franks, Tanya Horgan, Chris Cooper, Abigail Morse, Julieen Hicks, Kate Bird, Rebekah Bruyn, Natasha Cochrane, Craig Madders and Anne-Marie Schmidt.

We plan to enter PoP teams in next year’s second season, which commences in August and runs for 12 weeks.

Senior Campus Music News

As the end of 2020 draws nigh, it is time for me to reflect on my first year at Prince of Peace. A friend who was a new Principal at a school where I taught, wisely advised that she would not change anything for her first year while she got a feel for the traditions of the school and the decisions and values which lay behind them. This was advice which I had wanted to bring with me into my job here. Alas, 2020 had other plans. But reflect I will none the less.

  • I have learned that we have students in this school singing and making live music in our assemblies and worship services almost every day, and while there is still a culture of shyness around music making we are surrounded by excellent examples.
  • I have learned that we have a healthy blessing of talent and skill both in the Extra Curricular Music Program and in the Elective Music Classroom.
  • I have learned that for a variety of reasons these two intersect but in many cases do not overlap and I am curious about that.
  • I have learned that, although we are seeing some excellent outcomes, many students have a great deal more musical potential to share than we are seeing.
  • I have also learned through working on the Lutheran Schools Virtual Choir project, the Year 12 mashup and the Year 9 song for their final Ubuntu Celebration, that given support and guidance, Prince of Peace can REALLY SING!

I see great things in the future for music on the Senior Campus with continued growth in all areas. I have edited the Ensemble Lists for 2021 including some new extension opportunities. I would like to use the morning rehearsal times to explore an extension Contemporary Ensemble, an extension Vocal Ensemble, and an extension Jazz Ensemble. The Senior Choir, String Ensemble and Percussion Ensemble will continue, we will have a Concert Band and two student led rock bands!

There are forms available now to sign up for these ensembles and for tuition in 2020. Instrumental auditions are happening now for the extension work. The vocal extension auditions will be in the new year. It is important for continuity and planning that you register your interest this year while there is time and space, to be accommodating of individual interests and needs.

The forms are in hard copy in the Senior Campus office, and are also available in TEAMS and directly from me via email.

I am so looking forward to next year being full of rich musical experiences and hopefully abounding in performance opportunities to share with our community.

Stay safe…

Stationery Aid

Stationery Aid is a volunteer-based, not for profit initiative that collects, sorts, cleans, renews and repacks excess and used stationery items that are in good working condition, to prevent them from going to landfill. School stationery packs and kits are then donated and distributed to school communities locally and eventually abroad.

There is a blue Stationery Aid recycling bin  located at both the Junior and Senior Campus. If you have stationery items in your household that are no longer required, please send them along to school or drop them into the blue wheelie bin provided at each  Campus office.

Uniform Shop

The Uniform Shop is located on the Junior Campus—park opposite reception and follow the signs to the shop under the Year 1 and 2 building. We carry all items of Prince of Peace uniform for both Junior and Senior Campus, including lunch bags, soccer socks, food technology aprons, Chess Club and music uniforms. The Campus shop is open Tuesdays and Thursdays 8.00am to 10.00am during the remainder of Term 4.  Orders can be placed anytime from The School Locker Website with either home or school delivery (PICK UP option). If you would like items delivered to your child’s class, please enter your child’s name and class in the second address line and Wendy will arrange delivery for you.

In addition, The School Locker has a super-store located at 5-6 Burke Crescent, Northlakes, which is open 8.30am to 5.00pm Monday to Friday and 9.00am to 3.00pm Saturdays. The super store also carries technology items (Apple authorised repairer), stationery, shoes, instrumental and sporting goods, making the trip well worth the visit.  Items can also ordered online for pickup or home delivery for a small fee.

Back-to-School Uniform Fittings: You are welcome to visit either the Campus Uniform Shop or The School Locker Northlakes for back-to-school uniform fittings—no appointment is required.  The last Campus Shop day for 2020 will be Thursday 3 December. We encourage students to be present to try on uniforms during visits, to save having to exchange items that may not fit.   A reminder that The School Locker offers a 60 day size guarantee, to enable exchanges in the event that growth over the term break exceeds expectations.  Please keep shop tags on all items, and check for fit closer to Term 1 2021 (do not wash or name items until then), and we will be happy to exchange your items.

Opening Hours, 2020 School Term

The Campus Uniform Shop is open during the rest of the 2020 school term at the following times:

  • Tuesday and Thursday mornings:  8.00 – 10.00am

Opening Hours, 2021 School Term

From January 2021, the Campus Uniform Shop will be open term time, twice a week at the following times:

  • Tuesday 7:30am – 9:30am

Due to Australia day falling on Tuesday, the first shop day of Term 1 2021 will be Wednesday 27 January, 7.30am to 9.30am

Prep–Year 12 Uniforms can be purchased from The School Locker (North Lakes) 7 days a week in January, and 6 days a week during the year. Special orders can be placed for students needing smaller or larger sizes. These orders are charged at the same price.

January 2021 Back-To-School Hours

  • Thursday 21 January 2021 from 8:00am – 12:00pm

Please be aware that due to COVID social distancing practices, service may be slower than usual. We will use a number system to enable families to social distance while waiting outside, limit customer numbers within the shop, and request EFTPOS transactions rather than cash. Chairs will be available outside of the Uniform Shop for those waiting to go inside. Uniforms can also be purchased from The School Locker in North Lakes 7 days a week during January, and 6 days a week during the year. Special orders can be placed for students needing smaller or larger sizes.  These orders are charged at the same price.
