Term 3 Week 8 | 30 August 2023
College News

Welcome to Week 8

Welcome to Week 8 and the final few days of (Queensland) winter.

Uniform Shop

While we don’t yet have a confirmed date, we are expecting that The School Locker will be able to be back on site with a small satellite shop from the beginning of Term Four, or close to.  The School Locker are very keen to get back into the Prince of Peace community and we have been working with them for several months to achieve this.  They will remain on the Junior Campus, but will not return to the same space as before.  Rather, they will be in the end classroom where we have been holding book fairs and the Father’s Day stall this week.

Grandparents and Special Friends Day

This may be my fourth year at Prince of Peace, but this year was my first outing at our Grandparents and Special Friends Day, and we saw several hundred grandparents and ‘special friends’ visiting one, or both campuses to spend time exploring a little of what a school day in the life of their grandchild/ren is like.  While our conversations and interactions showed this day to be a wonderful experience and a valued day for our visitors, I think seeing the joy and pride that our students had from Prep right up to senior years in being able to show their grandparents around their school, performing for them and interacting with them in their classes was such a blessing.  Though I did see a few grandparents, too, who looked a little excited about a short bus journey between campuses! Thank you to all our families who helped make this day so special by supporting it. Thank you, also, to Ms Donna Cook, Mrs Jenell Molkentin, Mrs Sue Noon, Mr Darren Moyle, their teams and the many staff who all worked so hard to ensure the day was a success.

Long Service Leave

I will be taking Long Service Leave in Term Four this year, interspersed with some Sabbatical Leave for which I will be spending several weeks walking just over 200km of the Camino in Spain with my family.  The Camino de Santiago is a pilgrimage walk that dates back just over 1000 years, where pilgrims walked hundreds of miles across Northern Spain to reach Santiago de Compostela Cathedral, which is believed to be built over the tomb of St James, one of the apostles.  Some of you may have seen a Martin Sheen film titled ‘The Way’ which set around this pilgrimage.  In order to keep any day to day impact on both the Junior and Middle/Senior Campus to a minimum, we will be seconding (borrowing!) a local Lutheran educator as Acting Head of College for Term Four.

Every blessing for the week ahead.

We have been invited to embrace Jesus as the model of SERVICE!

In Mark’s account, we see that the disciples argued over who amongst them was the “greatest”. In Jesus, the disciples had found someone that promised them more than they’d ever known. With Jesus claiming to be the Messiah, the disciples would have conjured up many different ideas of greatness. We all want to live a life of greatness, but how do we even begin to define who or what greatness is?

Jesus’ response to their quarrels provides us with a new, and ultimately fulfilling way of defining greatness. Jesus addresses our tension and provides us with a definition of true greatness-

He sat down, called the twelve disciples over to him, and said, “Whoever wants to be first must take last place and be the servant of everyone else.”

Mark 9:35

Jesus doesn’t get mad or frustrated at his disciples for speaking about greatness. He doesn’t say they shouldn’t pursue greatness. But he does correct and re-align them to a definition and understanding of greatness. For followers of Jesus, our search for fame is what we do for ourselves. Greatness is what we do for others.

Greatness is all about serving others. Greatness humbles themselves out of real love. Greatness allows one to experience real love. Jesus didn’t write himself into history for fame. He wrote himself in as a servant. Jesus didn’t write himself into history for himself. He wrote himself in for you and me.

True greatness shows up in the details of other people’s lives. This greatness means giving ourselves to the small, mundane, easily over-looked needs around you. God died that we might live. The new, forgiven, grace-filled life we have been invited into was meant to be great. We have been invited to serve others and lay down our life in love for others.

Thank You

The past weeks have been jammed with many different opportunities for members of our community. A huge thank you to the staff, parents and children who have helped to make a difference in so many ways.   I think particularly of those who participated in the Year 2 Sleepover, Father’s Day Stall, Year 6 Cohort Service, Book Week Parade, Grandparents Day, Gala Day Sports and the Year 5 camp. For the big and small parts that people have played, thank you for being a part of our community.

Class Placements—2024

Most families across the College are aware of the cautious stance taken when inviting class placement requests from families. I have children of my own and understand how much they would love to be placed with their best friend, or a preferred teacher that a sibling may have had. I also realise how important it is for them to grow as individuals and not be reliant on others for their academic and social successes.

I encourage all families, as we prepare for the final term of the 2023 school year, to allow their children to grow spiritually, emotionally, academically, socially and independently as they transition to their new 2024 class. I strongly encourage parents to place faith in the judgments and insights that our teaching staff have into individual students and their school persona.

I have the highest regard for the insights that our teachers offer into the placement of students for the following year. I also have the highest regard for the quality and competency of each of our teaching staff in their professional capacity as educators. Each classroom teacher also seeks feedback from their students on their friends from this year. This assists with the construction of class lists for the following year.

As in previous years, any request for a specific classroom teacher will not be considered. As you can appreciate, staff movement amongst year levels is inevitable, and therefore specific teacher requests often become redundant. However, if you believe there is an important consideration (that sits outside of friendship and teacher requests) that needs to be taken into account when placing your child for 2024, please submit this request in writing to the attention of Mrs Anne-Marie Schmidt. My commitment to you is that such requests will be considered, however, please understand that no guarantees can be made.

Ultimately, I will be guided by our teaching staff and their knowledge of your child, as well as any pertinent information you may be able to provide in relation to your child’s specific learning needs. Please ensure that these requests are submitted in writing by the end of Term 3 – Friday 15 September.

This is a little earlier than usual as this year we plan to have a “Step Up Day”.  A “Step Up Day” is when children get to meet their new class teacher (if possible) and know who their 2024 classmates will be. We believe that this little step, might go some way to calming nerves and helping children feel more confident as they progress to the next year level.

Thank you for your assistance in ensuring the complex process of class placements for the 2024 school year is attended to in the most equitable and professional manner possible.

Please be aware that once class placements have been allocated, there will be no further movement of class arrangements except in exceptional or uncontrollable circumstances.

Traffic – Be Safe

From time to time, I receive calls from concerned parents and neighbours about unsafe traffic behaviour around the College.

  • Speeding
  • Cars jumping the queue in an unsafe manner
  • Drivers using their phones while driving
  • Blocking access to driveways
  • Parking on yellow lines near the pedestrian crossing

I cannot reiterate enough that safety for children, families and people using the roads is so important.

Building Works Near the Junior Campus

This past week, we’ve also been advised that the vacant block next to the entrance of the Junior Campus on Rogers Parade West will become busy with builders and contractors in late September.

As with all building, there is likely to be traffic congestion near the building site.

I simply ask that people be patient and remember safety first for you, your children, your family and our community.

Thank you, PoP community, for all you do.

Being Good Stewards of Our Environment

In a world filled with wonder and beauty, it’s our responsibility to take care of the environment around us. Just like we look after our homes and our belongings, we also need to be good stewards of the Earth. Genesis 1:28 says And God blessed them. And God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth and subdue it and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over every living thing that moves on the earth.”

Genesis 1:28 is known as the cultural mandate. It’s the original call to stewardship. It’s where God first calls humanity to cultivate and care for his creation using the unique gifts and talents he has bestowed to every person. Being environmentally conscious isn’t just something grown-ups need to worry about – kids can play a big role too! Some lessons that we can all remember are:

1. Reduce, Reuse, Recycle:
Remember the three Rs – Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle. When we reduce, we use less and create less waste. Reusing means finding new ways to use things we already have, like turning an old jar into a pencil holder. Recycling is about turning things like paper, plastic, and glass into new things instead of throwing them away. By following these three Rs, we can help keep our planet clean and save resources.

2. Use Less Plastic:
Plastic can harm animals and our planet. We can reduce plastic waste by using reusable water bottles, lunch containers, and bags instead of disposable ones. Help remind your family to say no to plastic straws and use sustainable shopping bags.

3. Explore Nature:
One of the best ways to become a good steward of the environment is to spend time in nature. Visit parks, beaches, forests, and rivers to see the amazing plants and animals that live there. When we appreciate the beauty of nature, we’re more likely to want to protect it.

Remember, taking care of the Earth is a team effort, and every small action counts. By working together, kids and families can create a healthier and happier planet for everyone.

At PoP, we are mindful of the contributions that we make to care for our environment. One of the ways which we are making a difference is our ‘Trash Free Tuesdays’. Each Tuesday, students are encouraged to bring lunches which don’t produce any plastic waste.

Next term, we will be running some competitions and looking at our impact from reducing the waste we have in our lunchboxes.

So, let’s join together and make a positive difference for our environment, now and for the future!

Global Academic Challenge Results

How we learn through Inquiry – Keeping it real

Inquiry-based learning is an education approach that focuses on investigation and problem-solving. Inquiry-based learning is different from traditional approaches because it reverses the order of learning. Instead of presenting information, or the answer up-front, teachers start with a range of scenarios, questions and problems for students to navigate.

Inquiry-based learning prioritises problems that require critical and creative thinking so students can develop their abilities to ask questions, design investigations, interpret evidence, form explanations and arguments, and communicate findings.

At Prince of Peace inquiry is undertaken through our project-based learning (PBL). In project-based learning, students develop “knowledge and skills by working for an extended period of time to investigate and respond to an authentic, engaging and complex question, problem, or challenge.” (Buck Institute for Education)

One aspect of inquiry is that of ‘keeping it real’. Keeping it real in the context of inquiry-based learning (IBL) means designing learning experiences that are authentic, relevant, and closely connected to the real world. It’s about making learning meaningful and engaging by focusing on practical applications, problem-solving, and critical thinking.

How does this look in the classroom?

  • Creating opportunities for our learners to solve problems, design or create something or learn about how something works.
  • Prioritising authentic experiences – visiting places, talking to people and interacting with real objects.
  • Seeking the expertise of parents or community members who can share their experiences and knowledge from their real-world occupation.
  • Providing learners with opportunities to share their learning with other students, parents and the wider school community.
  • Encouraging learners to make a difference in their world through their learning and exploration of issues.

Keeping it real in inquiry-based learning involves creating learning experiences that mirror real-world situations, problems and processes. This approach motivates students by demonstrating the practical relevance of what they are learning and encourages them to become active, critical thinkers who can apply their knowledge in meaningful ways.

Happy learning!

Embracing community and living in the relationships with each other

Grandparents and Special Friends Day was a wonderful experience for us to come together in community as the pandemic caused us to put events such as this on hold. We thank every parent and young person who supported their Grandparents and special friends in spending time experiencing the learning and opportunities at Prince of Peace. The invitation of this day acknowledges the important role that Grandparents and special friends play in the lives of family. We know that Grandparents and special friends pass on the family heritage and Christian values which have shaped our young people.

Intergenerational exchanges and dialogue keep us all alive in our hearts and minds and causes us to wonder about the deep impact we have on each other and how the world has changed throughout time. Young people and elders build the future of peoples: Young people because they lead history forward, elders because they transmit the experience and wisdom of their lives. This relationship and dialogue between generations is a treasure to be preserved and strengthened.

We are thankful for the great wisdom and experience that elders in our lives pass on from generation to generation, and we celebrate the gifts of all our ancestors – the gift of life and love. We give thanks to God for the guidance and encouragement of Grandparents and special friends in our lives and feel honoured that over 200 families were able to share in this time together on the Middle and Senior Campus. We encourage families to note this special event in their calendars for 2024 when confirmed.

Mt Binga Camp Experience

Our Year 9s have settled into Mt Binga life where they will spend 4 weeks learning new teamwork and camping skills, chores around the farm and caring for animals, horse riding, bushwalking, solo camp out and high ropes courses. Weekends bring a time to relax, worship together, chores around the farm, cooking, board and card games, reading, walking and writing in journals. We are thankful to our Lutheran elders and leaders before us who over 30 years ago had the vision to formulate transformational camping experiences such as this. This vision enriches the lives of our young people today with the opportunity to retreat in God’s creation away from technology, the routines of school life and be present in living in relationships with others. We look forward to the final day in two weekends time where parents and family come to hear the final presentations from students and staff and tour the camp site.

Book Week Parade

Thank you for your support with Book Week dress up and parade in Week 7 and for encouraging the love of literature and reading with our young people. These are important community and connection days that become special memories for our young people. We thank the English department for preparations for this day and for keeping the joy and love of reading alive in our culture.

Music Gala Showcase

Our Middle and Senior musicians performed beautifully at the Music Gala Showcase in Week 6, and it was a wonderful celebration of the gift of Music and the joy it brings to our lives. The 90s theme was embraced by students, staff and families who were present, with everyone getting involved in the finale; ‘I’ll be there for you’ from Friends. We thank Linda Brady, the Instrumental staff and Richard Stevens for the many hours they give in developing our young people’s performance, AV technician and backstage crew opportunities through evenings such as this. We are thankful for all they do and how they enrich our students’ lives.

We keep our Year 11 and 12 students and families in our prayers as they prepare for the examination block that is on in Week 9 and 10 of this term. This is an important opportunity for our Year 12s to experience trial exams before their final exams in Term 4. For our Year 11s it gives them opportunities to apply techniques that have been taught and reflect on this experience. The Elevate study skills program in Years 11 and 12 over the last 18 months hopes to share further techniques that compliments what subject teachers offer to their students.

The Year 8s are coming closer to their performance of the Circus Musical which will be on Wednesday and Thursday in Week 10 of Term 3. Parents, extended family, and special friends are more than welcome to attend these performances at the Prince of Peace Lutheran Church on the Junior Campus.

Every blessing for the week ahead,

Sarah Hoff-Zweck
Head of Campus – Middle and Senior

Community requires connection and commitment

Building and sustaining community comes through continual connection and commitment to grow and improve together.  Our Year 9 students are currently in community at Mt Binga camp and learning how to connect and live with each other in ways that they have not experienced before – especially when it comes to doing chores and being accountable for contributing to positive group experiences. The Ubuntu program – I am because we are – in Year 9, facilitated by Mr Norm Russell, Mrs Sharon Grimes, and Mr Richard Stevens together with Mr Mark Rienecker (Year 9 Year Level Coordinator), prepares our students for this challenging and rewarding experience.  Please continue to pray for our students to have courage, resilience, and joy throughout their time at camp for the rest of this term and parents we are keeping you in our prayers too!

Collective responsibility supports a healthy College community to grow

The Greek word for fellowship is koinonia, which means being committed to one another.  By taking collective responsibility for the care, welfare, safety and security of our students and staff, our College community continues to grow in connection and commitment to one another.  We show our commitment to demonstrating the 4Rs of Respect, Responsibility, positive Relationships and Restorative practices and the expectations that come with these values every day in community at school.

In the past two weeks, the Student Leadership Council (SLC) have taken collective responsibility representing all Middle and Senior students to support community events.  They worked hard as a team to promote the National Day of Action Against Violence and Bullying in Week 6 and raise money for homelessness in Brisbane by supporting Orange Sky Australia.  Thank you to all students who donated for free dress and brilliant busking on the day or purchased sweets, sausage sizzle and drinks.  A big THANK YOU to our brilliant bakers and for the sweets donated for sale from our wonderful SLC families – we really appreciate your support.

The SLC presented a lovely poem titled: When you thought I was not looking on Grandparents and Special Friends Day that brought a tear to many eyes; and finally, at every Open Day we host on Middle & Senior Campus, the SLC are welcoming to our prospective families, taking tours around the campus and introducing staff when visiting classrooms.  We are very proud of the students who are in SLC as they take collective responsibility for their school and foster community connections.

Peace to you,

Melissa Graham
Director of Wellbeing – Middle & Senior Campus

Thank You

Thank you all for your attendance at our 2023 GALA Celebration of Music with its 90s themed fancy dress. Awards went to Simon Till and Eliza Thomas-Hall as well as to the Forbes-Schutz Family for their amazingly well thought-out costumes. Performances from all of the Ensembles were well received by the crowd with particular mention of the beautiful String Ensemble’s interpretation of the 90s hit Bittersweet Symphony.

As we farewelled our Year 9 students to the Mt Binga camp and our senior students to focus on preparation for their external exams, our ensembles have rolled over into repertoire and skill development.

Please note that ensembles continue throughout the remainder of Term 3 and attendance is important. You child is a valued team member and we really notice when they are away. Please avoid putting appointments or other events on which create clashes and tension for these students who are trying so hard to do their best in this context.

We are currently in preparing for the PoP Community Carols with both the Senior and Junior Campus music ensembles and the Prince of Peace Church. The date is Saturday 25 November. Please put this into your diaries. As many students as possible will be involved with many of the older students who will actually have finished the day before offering their service. This is a true statement of who they are and the depth of commitment of these young people.

Our attention also goes to our Year 8 students are about to shine in the Year 8 Musical – The Circus. It will be so good to hear our young talent coming through. Congratulations to all of the Year 8s who will be performing in two really fun and engaging shows on September 13 and 14 in the PoP Chapel on the Junior Campus.

If you are interested in a family outing to bring a wider musical perspective into your home, can I recommend Spinifex Gum featuring Marliya in the Concert Hall at QPAC on 20 October. The concert will feature Spinifex Gum, a choir of young Indigenous female singers from Far North Queensland and the Torres Strait with the Marliya choir led by Lyn Williams AM, the music of Felix Riebl and Ollie McGill (The Cat Empire) and choreography by Deborah Brown. I’ll be there – perhaps I will see you there too…

Stay tuned!
