Principal’s Message

Welcome back to Term 3.  I write to you on a cool and windy winter morning, trying to warm after standing in the car park and welcoming back our students.  As I thaw out, I look out my office window watching 734 students walking off to class, some eagerly and some with the memory of holidays still firmly etched in their minds. I hope you all had a good, and well deserved break.  I was fortunate enough to spend my break with friends and family, as they came to see our new house for the first time.  After moving back from the Philippines, our family of five squeezed in with my father in law who lives in the Redlands for 6 months while we searched for a house close to school.  I can now say we are happily locals, and I am enjoying a short 15 minute drive to and from school each day.

I spent most of my childhood growing up in and around Shailer Park, before the Hyperdome (which used to be a very cool water slide park), and while most of that area was virgin bush.  I went to Kimberly Park State Primary School, and then rode to Shailer Park State High School every day.  Now when I visit the area, I don’t recognise much of the streets and suburbs that seemingly go on forever, and I marvel at the population growth Logan City has experienced over the past 20+ years.  In fact you don’t have to venture far from our school these days to see evidence of swift growth.  In the time that I was away, the space between Park Ridge and Marsden is almost exclusively filled with new high density housing estates, and we are being told to expect an approximate population of 25,000 extra people in Park Ridge alone.

As the needs of our local population change, and as demand grows for good schools in our area, the College considers how we might serve the needs of our growing local community. To this end, we have re-engaged our architect and have re-commenced discussions regarding our Master Plan. We are conscious that the economic impacts of COVID-19 may still impact our College families in the months and even years to come, yet as we emerge from isolation in a healthy financial situation, we feel confident to cautiously pursue our building plans. We do this out of a motivation to serve our local community, and welcome new families into our culture.  We are not looking to grow quickly, nor are we seeking to become a big school.  Rather, with careful planning and attention to cultural details, we wish to extend our capacity to care for our students, and invest in their lives as they become all that God wants them to become.

For the remainder of the year, we will be developing our plans and raising funds to hopefully start preparing for a third stream (class group) of students that would commence in 2023.  In the meantime, my attention will be focused on emerging from isolation well, and re-establishing a sense of normality as we strive to provide our students with a rich and wholesome education. Excursions, camps and community events will slowly be re-introduced to our program, and it is my sincere hope that we will be able to end our year with most, if not all of our usual and much loved events.  There will be changes and disruptions in the season ahead, but I again thank you all in advance for your patience and grace as we navigate these uncertain times.

May you be blessed as we travel through this term together.

Head of Primary

Welcome Back

I trust you had a lovely holiday break, having spent time doing the nice, fun and or relaxing things you enjoy, with family and friends?

At the start of this semester I wish you and the students everything of the best for the term that lies ahead.

Reports

All students should have received a modified ‘End of Semester Report’ via email (for the first time) at the conclusion of last term. If you haven’t received it, please kindly contact Nancy Abolins in Student Services on 3380 4702.

This report should confirm what your child’s teacher has informed you of, or given you feedback on throughout the term as to how your child has progressed.

On Wednesday 22nd July we have our Primary P/T Interviews (which will take on the Profile Evening style) of being done in the classrooms, where you can book an interview ‘on line’, to discuss your child’s report with their class teacher. Be on the lookout for the Informative Email with more information, booking times and procedures!

Start of Day

A reminder that students should be on site by 8.25am the latest and ready for the start of the school day by 8.30am sharp. Would you please assist us in reminding students of these procedures and do all you can to have students on campus by 8.25am the latest. We thank you for your support and understanding in this regard.

Uniforms

For the start of Term 3, could you please ensure ALL uniform items, lunch boxes/water bottles and bags are clearly relabeled with your child’s name? Ensure that black shoes are polished, hair is cut and the correct uniform items are worn – jumper with Academic Uniform and the tracksuit jacket with Sport Uniform. Please also check students are wearing predominantly WHITE, leather upper sneakers / sand shoes with their sports uniform.

If unsure about any uniform requirements, please feel free to check the School Website (Online Store – Uniform Policy – Primary) or ask the RTC staff or class teachers. Thank you for your understanding and assistance in this regard.

COVID SAFETY aspects in and around our school

An ongoing emphasis has been placed on ‘child safety, social distancing, washing hands’ from the beginning of term 2 whereby we’re continually reminding students to: stay 1.5m apart, regularly wash hands, walk on the concrete, stay under the verandahs or covered areas when raining and moving around the school, don’t push and shove and walk in single file up and down the stairs, play nicely and safely on the playgrounds and to have “KIND words and FRIENDLY action” when at school. Can we ask that you please remind your child to do likewise when at school?

Parents, social distancing/DROP & GO/collecting students from classrooms of an afternoon are ALL still in place for this term. Please also be very careful and vigilant around the pedestrian crossing, when opening car doors in the car parks and to please stick to the 20 km/h speed limit when driving through the school?

Can we please remind all parents and students that the safest and only place to cross the Rosia Rd car park should be at the pedestrian crossing and not just before the top exit gate, close to the Gr 5 classrooms! THANK YOU for your support in keeping our students safe!

Helping Children Bounce Back

Life is a wonderful but sometimes bumpy journey. Everyone experiences setbacks, frustrations and hard times at different times in their lives. We can’t protect young people from the stress of all the possible setbacks in their life but we can teach them the coping skills that promote resilience. Recent research studies have suggested that today’s children may be less resilient than those of previous generations and more in need of opportunities to learn resilience skills.

The Personal Skills of RESILIENCE

There are many skills that we can teach students to provide them with a resilience ‘tool kit’ for coping with life and being successful. We can teach our children to be optimistic by, for example:

  • Showing them how to find the positives (however small) in negative situations;
  • Helping them to understand that negative situations in your life are temporary and that bad situations are specific and do not necessarily flow over into all aspects of your life.

Many children become unnecessarily distressed and fearful because they distort a situation or they have incorrect and unhelpful beliefs that make it less likely that they will attempt to solve a problem.

Examples of such thinking include:

  • I must be perfect and never make any mistakes
  • If something bad has happened to me once it will happen again

Young people also need to learn skills for being confident as part of their ‘resilience tool kit’. These skills include:

  • Knowing their own strengths and limitations and being prepared to work hard and not give up despite encountering obstacles; (parents don’t always look to solve their situations / fight their battles for them)
  • Realise that not everyone will treat them kindly and nicely all the time; (parents to give examples of own situations and instances)
  • Making good decisions and seeking advice from parents and teachers is wise so their decisions are more likely to be good ones; (parents offer good advice not always solutions)
  • Solving problems creatively or telling a teacher helps to solve the situation; (this is not ‘dobbing’, but allows staff to assist them by attending to matters). If the police can use “Crime Stoppers” to seek information, we too ask students to report matters to staff and the RTC.
  • Knowing that mistakes are OK (parents to reinforce students that mistakes are Ok)

It’s evident that young people with well-developed social skills are more likely to be resilient and to have a good support network of friends when needed. Key social skills can be taught and practiced in a range of classroom and playground situations. Skills for knowing triggers of anxiety or anger can be taught and finding the confidence to act courageously when necessary, are also an important part of a young person’s resilience ‘tool kit’.

Through many areas of the curriculum, teachers can encourage their students to develop and try to live by our values such as Christlikeness, Excellence, Attitude, Respect, Cooperation and Acceptance of differences. Parents can reinforce and role model these situations and ideas at home, thus offering the child every opportunity to see resilience in action!

Looking forward to a wonderful term of doing your child’s education together.

Year One

A huge welcome back to term 3 from Year 1!

We also welcomed Mr Melvold to Year 1 today. He is studying his Teacher Aide course and will be doing some practical hours with us at Parklands.

We enjoyed an amazing first day back. We wrote all about our holidays and illustrated our work. We were proud of how hard they worked and super impressed with their sentences!

We are looking forward to a fabulous time of learning over the next 10 weeks. We will be learning all about physical and chemical changes in Science and we’ll be jumping back into the past as we learn about Then and Now in our HASS unit.

We look forward to sharing more fun with you throughout the term.

Take care,
Mrs Clausen, Mrs Davis and Mrs Marsh

PCC Instrumental Music

As the holidays draw to a close, we consider the term before us – a little closer to what used to be normal, but still some uncertainty remains. We would like to think that music can provide some anchor of stability to students in this still uncertain time, & to that end we will be resuming as many musical activities as safely possible in Term 3.

Lessons

From Week 1, all music lessons will be face-to-face on campus. If families are continuing to self-isolate, there may still the option to join a lesson via Zoom. Please notify your teacher so this can be arranged, and we will do our best to include your child as fully as possible in the lesson. For those having face-to-face lessons, please be assured that appropriate cleaning & distancing measures will be in place. Students will be using their own instruments and it is the responsibility of students & parents to clean their equipment before & after home practice, lessons & rehearsals. For piano students, the piano is carefully cleaned between every lesson, as well as at the beginning & end of the day. Percussion students must bring their own sticks & mallets.

Timetables

With the prospect of a slightly more normal Term, our Brass, Woodwind & Percussion lessons will revert to rotating timetables. Timetables will be communicated by email & will be available on PCC@Home shortly.

Ensemble Rehearsals

We are keen for Ensemble rehearsals to re-commence where possible, as this is an integral & fun part of learning & playing music. As most of our Ensembles are quite small in number, we have sufficient space for appropriate distancing & will take all steps to ensure this is maintained. Details for rehearsals are as follows:

Wind Ensemble: Wednesday 7:30am in Mrs Patane’s Music Room

Give It A Go Band: Wednesday 7:30am in the Church Auditorium

Primary Choirs: arrangements to be communicated by Mrs Patane

Secondary Choir: Friday 7:30am in S1

While live performance opportunities are still not possible right now, we’re definitely putting creative thought into other ways of sharing performances with the College family. Information about those events will be communicated at a later date.

It’s never too late to be part of our growing Instrumental Programme – here’s how your child can be involved:

  1. Give It A Go! Band Programme – Year 4 students only

This is a one year beginner programme for Year 4 students, giving them the opportunity to learn a woodwind, brass or percussion instrument in small groups during school time. The next Give It A Go! intake will be in 2021.

  1. Private lessons

Private lessons are available for piano, guitar, drum kit, most woodwind & and all brass & stringed instruments. Lessons are scheduled mostly during school time, & fees are billed by & payable directly to the instrumental teachers at $30/30mins.

  1. Shared lessons

Shared lessons are available for all of the above instruments except piano. Lessons are again scheduled mostly during school time, & fees are also billed by & payable directly to the instrumental teachers at $18/30mins for a Group of 2 or $14/30mins for a Group of 3, pending availability.

Enrolment forms are available for download below, or by emailing instruments@parklands.qld.edu.au

Student Care and Wellbeing

Loving On Purpose – Powerful People

When you hear Powerful Person, most people think of the controlling, loud, life of the party, aggressive and a domineering individual. Yet these people are not what GOD considers powerful. 2 Corinthians 3:17 – ‘Now the LORD is the SPIRIT and where the SPIRIT is there is FREEDOM’ Galatians 5:13 discusses the fruit of the Spirit and what they look like. This is what a powerful person looks like!

Here are 8 traits of a powerful person:

1. THEY CONTROL THEMSELVES.

Powerful people understand that it is their job to control themselves. They do not try to control, convince, or manipulate other people or their behaviours. They know it doesn’t work, and it’s not their job. They focus their energy on being able to control themselves regardless of what others may or may not do.

2. THEY CREATE A RESPECTFUL ENVIRONMENT.

Powerful people are able to consciously and deliberately create the environment in which they want to live. They don’t try to get people to respect them; they create a respectful environment by showing respect. They deliberately set the standard for how they expect to be treated by the way they treat others. As they consistently act in responsible, respectful, and loving ways, it becomes clear that the only people who can get close to them are those who know how to show respect, be responsible, and love well.

3. THEY REFUSE TO BE A VICTIM.

Powerful people are happening. They are happening all the time. They are not controlled or infected by their environment. Powerful people refuse to play the victim by shifting responsibility for their choices onto others. Letting other people dictate how they are going to feel or what they will choose to do. They happen to their circumstances rather than letting their circumstances dictate to them what they will do or how they will feel.

4. THEY REQUIRE OTHERS AROUND THEM TO BE POWERFUL.

Powerful people empower others to be powerful. When powerful people encounter a powerless person, they are not tempted to dive into any unhealthy emotional ties or attachments. They hear a victim’s sob story and ask, “So what are you going to do about that? What have you tried? What else could you try?” These questions empower powerless people with owning their responsibility and their capacity to make choices and how they can control themselves. This is the only option a powerful person will offer to powerless people: become powerful, make choices, and control yourself. Powerful people demonstrate what it means to be powerful.

5. THEY MAKE DAILY DECISIONS THAT ALIGN WITH THEIR VISION.

Powerful people have a vision and mission for their life, and can use the events of each day, whether positive or negative, to direct themselves toward that vision. Powerful people do not simply react to whatever is happening today. They are able to take responsibility for their decisions and the consequences of those decisions–even for mistakes and failures. They can respond to today and create tomorrow.

6. THEY LET THEIR “YES” BE “YES” AND “NO” BE “NO.”

In Matthew 11:7 Jesus talks about John not being a reed swayed in the wind. So popular opinion or the pressure of others does not sway the language of powerful people. They know exactly what they want and how to communicate their desires. A powerful person says, “I will. I do. I am.” Powerful people can say both “Yes” and “No,” and mean it. Others can try to manipulate, charm, and threaten, but their answer will stand.

7. THEY LOVE UNCONDITIONALLY.

A powerful person’s choice to love will stand, no matter what the other person does or says. When powerful people say, “I love you,” there’s nothing that can stop them. Their love is not dependent on being loved in return. It is dependent on their powerful ability to say “Yes” and carry out that decision. This protects their love from external forces, or from being managed by other people. Powerful people keep their love on and say “I can handle your mistakes, I love you!”

8. THEY CONSISTENTLY DEMONSTRATE WHO THEY SAY THEY ARE.

Powerful people can be who they say they are on a consistent basis. And because they know how to be themselves, they invite those around them to be themselves. Only powerful people can create a safe place to know and be known intimately. They say, “I can be me around you and you can be you around me. We do not need to control each other, and we don’t want to control each other.”

We are all growing to be a powerful person. Powerful people are ok with making mistakes and take the opportunity to learn. No matter what happens know that every step we are learning and moving towards the person that GOD created us to be!

Enjoy the journey of being a powerful person!
