Future Focused Education

As one of the College’s key focus points within Future Focused Education in our strategic direction suggests, we are currently conducting a review of our current academic programmes and pedagogies within the College. This has led to members of our Senior Leadership Team undertaking visits out to a number of differently situated and focused Lutheran Colleges this term. Staff and students at St Andrews (Gold Coast), Faith (Redlands), Faith (Plainlands) and St Peters (Indooroopilly) have all been incredibly generous and gracious with their time over the past month, allowing us to see, in their own contexts, the workings of their programmes and pedagogies. We’ve been able to observe, question and examine junior-focused programmes like the IB’s Primary Years Programme (PYP) and Project Based Learning (PBL), and middle years programmes that also look at different opportunities in presenting core and elective subject learning to students with different levels of flexibility and inquiry learning built in to enhance student engagement. While the overall ideas behind all of these programmes are closely aligned already with our current learning pedagogies, these explorations have so far both reinforced plenty of the excellent work our staff are already doing in these spaces, as well as showing potential opportunities that we have been able to be take away from these visits. We will continue to explore and unpack these in the coming months as we look ahead to ongoing improvements to student learning into the future. Looking for ‘silver linings’ in the rectification works of the recent flooding of some classrooms, our visits have also given us some simple ideas to make some physical changes to buildings that Anne-Marie will talk about further, looking at how our environments can support and enhance the learning of students.


Every five years, every independent (non-government) school in Queensland goes through a process of reaccreditation, where a deep-dive assessment, both internally and with external consultants, takes place to both affirm the great work that happens in all schools, and to also check for dotted ‘i’s and crossed ‘t’s in hundreds of documents and processes. 2024 is the year that Prince of Peace returns to this process, having last completed it in 2019. Behind the scenes across the year, a tremendous amount of work is being undertaken by staff in many areas to collate, check and update where necessary, everything from governance policies, curriculum and planning documents, the list is significant. This is done in conjunction with and support from LEQ, who assist all 26 Queensland Lutheran schools with this process.

PoP Picnic

We are continuing to focus on community at the College, and so it was that we ran our first, and given its success likely not last, PoP Picnic on Friday 1 March. With a very popular inflatable slide, food trucks, in-house BBQ supported by the church congregation, and an array of games to suit all ages it all made for a wonderful afternoon, thoroughly enjoyed by those in attendance. It’s events like these that make us stop and reflect on just how wonderful our school and church communities are and that we are so blessed to be able to celebrate together. A huge thank you to everyone involved in making this afternoon such a success.

Every blessing for the week ahead.

Head of College

We will be offering Academic Scholarships at the College for students in Years 7 – 12 from 2025. The scholarships are open to both current PoP students and students enrolled at other schools. Students currently enrolled at Prince of Peace Lutheran College are eligible to apply.

Our Academic Scholarships are awarded based on outstanding results achieved in scholarship testing, previous academic records and an interview with the Head of College or Head of Campus. Academic Scholarships are set for 2 years and typically awarded at Years 7, 9 and 11.

Yr 3-12 Interhouse Cross Country Carnival

This year, the Prince of Peace Inter-House Cross Country event for students in Years 3 – 12 is scheduled for Tuesday 26 March 2024.

As has been the case in previous years, the event will take place at Teralba Park. However, we are changing the location of the tents and the start/finish line this year to the Mitchelton Football Club, off Osbourne Road. This will allow us to use the canteen and bathroom facilities at the Club and moves us away from the very busy Pullen Road.

Students from Years 3 –12 are requested to be dropped off at Teralba Park from 8am and sit in their designated house areas. Alternatively, students across Years 3 – 12 may request transportation to Teralba Park via the College bus service from either Campus by notifying their respective administration office by Monday 25 March, 9:00am. Students who are booked into OSHC at the beginning of the day will be transported to the Carnival by bus soon after 8:00am.

The event is scheduled to be completed by approximately 1:30pm when students will then be transported via the College bus service, back to their Junior or Middle/Senior Campus. Families are also required to notify College administration if they request for their child to depart Teralba Park via private transport at the conclusion of the event. Parents/Caregivers are to sign students out at the First Aid Tent/Station from the event. Presentations for age groups will be made after the races at Teralba Park, including the winner of the overall Years 3 – 12 Inter-House Cross Country shield.

Students are required to wear full School sports uniform including coloured House shirts and wide-brimmed school hat. Sunscreen and a water bottle are also essential for each student to bring along on the day. Morning Tea and Lunch in a separate bag is required for the event. The Football Club will open their canteen for the duration of the event. If students bring mobile phones or earbuds to this event they will be required to be kept in the student bag as per the College’s expectations. Laptops or Ipads are not required at the Carnival and should remain at School.

If any parents wish to assist on the day (and have their Blue Card and Valuing Safe Communities certificates) or have any questions about the carnival, please contact Gabby Collman.

PLEASE NOTE: Students will run at the following approximate times (spectators please allow 30mins before/after):

Junior Campus News


This week the students in Year 3, 5, 7 and 9 have been participating in NAPLAN testing. It is quite natural to desire excellent achievement and want to see growth and progress. I am passionate about growing skills and ability for the students at the College, however, rarely does one test or one learning experience provide the complete story of a child’s learning journey.   

NAPLAN gives us only a glimpse of your child’s abilities at a single point in time across the aspects of writing, reading, spelling/grammar and mathematics.  The “Soft Skills” that are often described as essential for future success like communication in all its forms, creativity, teamwork, adaptability, leadership resilience, or kindness are measured and developed beyond the NAPLAN arena.   

Whether your child is sitting NAPLAN this year or not, I encourage you to find ways to develop and grow the unique talents and skills of your children.  Encourage them to embrace challenges, learn from mistakes, delve deep into learning and celebrate growth. Remind them that their journey is about discovering passions and pursuing dreams. Support their curiosity, nurture their potential, develop and encourage their social capacity and emphasize that they are capable of extraordinary things beyond any test measure.  

 Term 2 – Conversations about Learning on the Junior Campus 

Early in Term 2, we have our first block of learning conversations: Wednesday 17 April 3:30PM to 7:30PM and Tuesday 23 April 3:30PM to 7:30PM  

Keep a look out for SEQTA communications that indicates when the online booking system called SOBS will be open.  

In keeping with our desire to involve students more fully in the process, reflection and goal setting of learning, our Year 2 to Year 6 families are using the Parent Teacher Student format.  The focus on these conversation times is for students and parents to be present with teachers. As teachers and children prepare for these conversations together, please don’t forget to bring your child along.  The opportunity to empower your child in the learning process as co-creators and generate student voice and agency is so important.  

For these Term 2 conversations, the Prep to Year 1 teachers will prepare for Teacher Parent Conversations. Later in the year, during the Term 3 conversations, Prep and Year 1 students will join their parents and teacher for the sessions.   

At any time, you wish to communicate with teachers about your child’s learning, please do not hesitate to make contact and arrange a mutually agreeable time to talk.  


Last POPCORN I mentioned various members of the College leadership team have been exploring contemporary education in different settings.  We’ve taken many a road trip of late to other parts of the Southeast corner. Our experiences often shape our thinking and last week, we witnessed a shocking car accident involving a student.  It all happened so quicky and my heart goes out to the community, the parents, the friends and the person driving and witnessing this accident.   

Of late, I’ve received reports of people driving unsafely through the Junior Campus.  Speed, using the wrong side of the road, passing in unsafe ways and parking in the wrong places that then causes issues.  

I understand that when you are in a rush, it’s hard to be patient but I do ask that you drive safely.  Accidents happen so quickly – be careful, be safe, be late!  All these options are better than what we witnessed last week.  

Update on the Flooded Classrooms  

The repairs to the flooded classrooms are well underway. Our Facilities and Business office teams are problem solving their way through the issues and we are excited about getting the spaces back and operational.  If you walk past these rooms, you will notice a slight tweak – we’ve managed to make some adjustments that will create more flexible learning spaces, namely a large opening for glass sliding doors between two of the spaces as well as an increase to the size of one of the doors.  This will enable our staff to work in a more collaborative way with students, easily moving between teaching and learning areas and to use the collaborative teaching and learning pedagogy that currently occurs in Area 6.     

We are currently looking at this redeveloped space as a place our Year 6 students will move into, with the intention of moving the library back to its original space on the Campus.  The Master planning work that the College has recently undertaken along with striving to develop spaces that match pedagogy supports this decision.  Once the library has been moved back, our Year 3 classes will settle into the middle block of classrooms for the coming years.   

We know that this is a huge move for all involved, particularly with Library resources.  We anticipate that most of the relocation will occur toward the end of Term 2 and during the mid-year break of 3 weeks, when there is more time and available manpower to facilitate the work that is involved and the impact on learning is minimized.  

Our Year 6 Leaders – Salt and Light for our Community

Last Friday, we celebrated our Year 6 Student leaders at their special Installation service in The Shed.  The flood events of 3 weeks ago, delayed this celebration, yet our special guest, The Honorable Tim Mander, member for Everton returned to speak about leadership skills, planning, making decisions and the importance of being a servant to others.  Chappy Reilly reminded us all that we are called to be Jesus’ salt and light in the world to love and serve others; a foreign concept in Roman times.   

Our Year 6 students have been learning about their personal skills and abilities, teamwork and communication in their Leadership Development this term in preparation for implementing Year 6 break time activities next term.  I am excited to see how this fabulous group of children will enhance and serve the Junior Campus in the year ahead.

Reminder of correct footwear

As we continue to navigate through this first term, we want to take a moment to remind you of the importance of ensuring your child wears the correct school shoes. Proper footwear is not just about adhering to our school’s dress code; it’s about providing your child with the necessary support, comfort, and safety they need to thrive both in and out of the classroom.

As stated in our Student Uniform Guidelines, formal shoes must be black, leather school shoes with laces or velcro NB: Mary Jane shoes are permitted.

The Resilience Project – Emotional Literacy

Working on our emotional literacy gives us opportunities to develop our ability to understand and express different emotions.

When we improve our emotional literacy, we can work towards recognising our own feelings and our ability to manage them.

This allows us to cope with different life situations, such as managing conflict, making friends, coping in difficult situations, and being resilient when dealing with change.

Whole Family Activity:

Feelings Charades

Gather together as a family, this might be around the dinner table, lounge room, or around the fire outside.

Take turns to act out a feeling or emotion. Use your face and body language to act this out, For example: Make an angry face and stamp your feet.

Other family members need to guess the feeling/emotion.

After someone has guessed the feeling/emotion, have family members discuss a time they have felt this way before and why. If it was a negative emotion, how did they overcome it?

Family Habit Builder

Around the dinner table, ask everyone to share a feeling they felt during that day.

Discuss how they dealt with that feeling and then discuss and share strategies you could use when faced with particular feelings.

ThinkUKnow Presentations

This week, our Year 3-6 students have had the privilege of listening to Acting Sergeant and Crime Prevention Coordinator Ricky Blanckensee about the importance of keeping safe online. Acting Sergeant Ricky has been delivering the ThinkUKnow program to our College for several years and is a wealth of information for our students and their families.

ThinkUKnow Australia is an evidence-based education program led by the Australian Federal Police (AFP), delivered nationally in partnership with police and industry partners to prevent online child sexual exploitation.
They incorporate up-to-date research, real case studies and examples from reports made to the AFP-led Australian Centre to Counter Child Exploitation.

The program is pro-technology and addresses topics including self-generated child abuse material, online grooming, sexual extortion, and importantly encourages help-seeking behaviour.

The program is a partnership with the AFP, Commonwealth Bank of Australia, Datacom and Microsoft Australia, and in collaboration with all State and Territory police and Neighbourhood Watch Australasia.

Please visit the ThinkUKnow.org.au website for more information about this program »

Walking our way in serving others

This week in Middle and Senior Campus Worship our Student Leaders Council were presented with their badges for 2024.

They also led worship and welcomed Mr Michael Stolz, CEO of Australian Lutheran World Service (ALWS) who invited students, staff and families to step out in support of the people of Ukraine through Walk My Way Ukraine 2024.

On Saturday 11 May, ALWS hope to welcome 1,000 walkers as we step out in the heart of Brisbane to raise awareness and much needed funds to support the Ukrainian people who continue to suffer in the war with Russia.

Together, we will stand in solidarity with the Ukrainian people and celebrate their resilience and culture… while at the same time providing valuable, practical support.

Place the following date in your calendars and use the barcode in the poster to join the Prince of Peace Lutheran College Team.

ALWS Walk My Way Ukraine
Saturday 11 May 2024, 1-5pm
QUT Gardens Point Campus, Brisbane

Our reason for walking for the children, young people, men, and women of Ukraine

When the bomb went off near her house in Ukraine, eight-year-old Tapolina and her mum ran to a bomb shelter. They joined a hundred other people hiding from the Russian attack.

Tens of thousands more fled to the border to find safety in places like Poland. Sadly, the world moves on, and Ukrainian children now face being forgotten by the world.

That’s why you’re invited to step out in the Brisbane ALWS Walk My Way to care for the children of Ukraine. You will help build bomb shelters under Schools in Ukraine, so children trapped in the country can keep on learning.

For children who reach safety in Poland, you join the communities welcoming them as guests. Food. Shelter. Clothes. Trauma counselling. Support to go to school. Help to learn Polish.

You choose how far you Walk My Way … but are invited to consider the challenge of 12,500 steps – one step for each Ukrainian civilian life lost. You receive a Walk My Way Ukraine T-shirt to tell the world why you’re walking, while a community festival will show you how you are valued by those you help.

As you step out here in Australia, you join Lutheran communities in Ukraine and Poland helping children like Tapolina start life again! What a way to walk for life!

Continuous Feedback (Progressive Reporting) and Parent/Teacher/Student Conversations

In creating powerful partnerships between students, parents and teachers, progressive reporting and continuous feedback is given to students and parents on learning. What this means is twice a term for each subject, students and parents will receive feedback via SEQTA on assessment for learning in real time. As parents you will gain a notification through SEQTA that feedback has been updated and you can check the feedback teachers have given.

This is our mode of reporting for this term and there will be two pieces of feedback by the end of Week 10. An end of Semester 1 a report will be issued that will report on the overall result for the semester, work habits for success and a pastoral care teacher comment.

We also have Parent, Teacher and Student Conversations which will be on Thursday 21 March from 3:30pm-7:30pm and Wednesday 27 March from 3:30pm-7:30pm. The focus on these conversation times is for students and parents to be present with teachers. Bookings for these sessions will come out via SEQTA on Direct Message and we use an online booking system called SOBS.

At any time, you wish to communicate with teachers about your child’s learning please do not hesitate to contact individual subject teachers.

We wish our Year 7 and 9 students every blessing as they sit NAPLAN tests over the next fortnight. May each of our students remember they have been gifted with different talents and skills and these tests are one test on one day that captures a snapshot in their learning journey. We pray for wisdom, calm and courage as our Year 12 and 11s also sit exams for their IA1 and FA1 tasks.

We look forward to connecting and strengthening our partnerships at Parent, Teacher and Student Conversations in Week 9 and 10.

Congratulations to our Middle School Captains for 2024

Tech Trends and Cultural Fusion at Prince of Peace

There is an exciting blend of technology and cultural fusion happening across the Middle & Senior Campus at Prince of Peace. From the fusion of Indigenous and Asian cuisine to innovative website development and beyond, our students are embracing creativity and innovation in diverse ways.

Year 7 and 8: Embracing Culinary Fusion

In Year 7 and 8, students are diving into the world of culinary fusion, exploring the rich tapestry of Indigenous and Asian cuisines. Through hands-on experiences and collaborative projects, they are discovering how to blend traditional ingredients and cooking techniques to create unique and flavour-filled dishes. This not only broadens their culinary horizons but also fosters cultural appreciation and understanding.

Exploring Web Development and Natural Dyeing Techniques

Meanwhile, students are delving into the world of web development, learning the ins and outs of creating functional and visually appealing websites. In addition, they are exploring natural Australian First Nation dyeing techniques and tie-dyeing methods, connecting with the rich cultural heritage of our land while honing their creative skills.

Year 9: Innovating for Sustainability and Equity

Year 9 students are tackling pressing issues such as food equity in the Food Technology class, and developing phone apps in the Digital Technologies class. They are also exploring terrarium building in STEM, and CO2 dragster design, blending creativity with a focus on sustainability and social responsibility.

Year 10: Engineering and Taste Australia

In Year 10, students are expanding their knowledge of engineering principles in the Engineering class, while exploring the diverse flavours of Australia through the “Taste Australia – Experiment the World” initiative in Food Technology. This interdisciplinary approach encourages students to think critically about the intersection of technology, culture, and taste.

Year 11 and 12: Crafting the Future

Finally, in Year 11 and 12, students are honing their skills in design, engineering, and manufacturing. From creating innovative furniture designs to mastering digital innovation, they are preparing to make a meaningful impact in the world of technology and design.

Date Saver: Soloists on Show Soiree  |  Thursday 14 March 6pm | Middle & Senior Campus Auditorium

I’m so excited for the Soloists on Show event. It is such a marvelous opportunity to hear the talent and concerted efforts of our students outside of their school commitments. Yes we do have some amazing Senior work on display here but that only happens because these students and families have been investing in lessons and practice usually since primary school. The Soloists On Show Recital is an acknowledgement of all of that dedication and hard work to create a beautiful transient art that only exists in a moment, and then is gone. Come to the concert and see what I mean.

Ensembles are busy practicing their 80s songs ready for our 40th anniversary Gala Celebration of Music on the 23 May. Put that date in your diary and start planning your outfits. I’m expecting lots of perms, fluro and leg warmers.

We have had a lot of new students signing up for private tuition which is great. Keep it coming. Spaces are still available for tuition on Voice, Drums, Piano, Guitar, Strings and other Woodwind and Brass instruments. Private Lessons will appear as a timetabled lesson in the student’s timetable. I wish I had that in my day. If in doubt see Ms Brady in M1.

Let’s get started and make some music!

Lent Sermon Series

During 2024 lent we will be holding a sermon series during Worship@9 on Sundays 9am.

In our youth, we set out to harness our inward strength and believe in our limitless potential. As we get older we believe that with enough knowledge, enough expertise, enough self-improvement, enough grit, we can make it.

Each day that passes we discover more and more that there are: the have-it-togethers and the messed up; the successful and the barely hanging on.

We would like to believe that we are just one day, one event, one win away from the life we always wanted….but it never seems to come.

In this sermon series we discover the more awareness we have that we are weak and frail and incapable of doing this thing called life, the more perfectly we are positioned to meet the God of grace and love.
