Principal’s Message

Dear Parklands Family,

As we conclude our first Term of the 2022 Academic Year, and look forward to a well-deserved break, I want talk about Easter.  In my opinion, Easter is the most important date in the Christian calendar, and represents an opportunity to consider the amazing love our God has for His creation.

Easter is the Christian holiday celebrating the Resurrection, or bringing back to life, of Jesus Christ three days after his crucifixion. In Christian tradition, the Resurrection represents Christ’s victory over death and the promise of eternal life for those who follow him. For me, it is a time when my family give thanks for the life and work of Jesus and the salvation I can experience because of God’s sacrificial love.

Australians celebrate Easter in a wide range of ways.  For those of us who approach this season from a religious tradition, Easter is a celebration of new life and renewed hope, and even though the story behind Easter records the crucifixion and death of Jesus, the good news is that He rose again.  He is risen! 

But the angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid; I know that you are looking for Jesus who was crucified.  He is not here; for he has been raised, as he said”  (Matthew 28, 5-6).

Over the past few years, our community has been through trials that have challenged us all.  Uncertainty, trauma, separation, isolation, sickness and even death have been front and centre in our news and social media.  The COVID-19 pandemic, which has touched our entire world, threatens to overshadow even our most special seasons of celebration.

Yet, despite our challenges and trials, let the Easter message shine. The Risen Lord is the same yesterday, today, and forever (Hebrews 13:8).  God’s love for us is unfailing, never changing and Easter is our reminder of this fact. God’s love overcame death and conquers fear and uncertainty with hope. Christ in Risen!

As our lives start to return to a rhythm that is familiar, lets celebrate our increasing freedoms through the celebration of Easter. Let us all declare our faith and give thanks to God for His love.  Amidst this challenging season, we need not fear because our God conquers death, and raises us to life with Jesus.

“Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O death, is your sting? But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ” (1 Cor. 15:55, 57).

I invite us all to find a church this Easter, and join a community of faith.  If you have been absent from church for a while, this is the season to return.  If you are looking for what Jesus means to you, this is the season to have your questions answered. If you are seeking healing, God wants to minister to you this Easter season.

Parklands Church will be running 2 Easter Services this year in Friday 15th, and Sunday 17th April.  I would love to see you there.

Have a safe Easter Break, and may God bless you.

Head of Primary School

Thank you for a very good, productive first term even with all the changes and uncertain times!

My prayers are with you, your family and the Parklands community during this very interesting ‘season’.

As we look to break for the autumn holidays, including the EASTER weekend, with all returning on Tuesday 19 April after Easter Monday, I pray you have a fantastic rest and a good break from the school routines of making lunches, getting up early etc. etc. I trust you are able to do the things that you enjoy and revitalise you, like spending time with the family (kids) and friends, going to the beach or just relaxing at home watching a movie or reading a book.

We look forward to having everyone back for a short, sharp (9-week) term starting on Tuesday 19th April.

Primary Building Plans

I am SO excited to inform you that we have fenced off the building site (see below) where they will very soon start to dig, excavate and start building our purpose-built Primary School.

If you missed the plans and fly through in my last few newsletter articles, here is the amazing ‘Stage 2 fly through’ link. It depicts the 3 high set buildings containing classrooms, outdoor learning spaces, an admin section with staffroom, toilet block, lift, connected verandahs, play area and gardens that was published to Facebook and LinkedIn. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n9oaCQD0sQ8

Uniforms

Can we please ask that you assist us in ensuring the students are correctly dressed in the right uniform each day? We don’t wish to experience students wearing their sport uniforms when not required or mixing and matching their academic with sport uniforms. If unsure about uniform items or correct uniform requirements, please feel free to contact your child’s teacher, TA, the RTC or check the school’s website.

Would you please be so kind as to ensure that ALL uniform items, lunch and water bottles are clearly labelled with the student’s name?

Profile Preview Afternoon (no appointment required)

Tuesday 26th April – 2.45pm to 4pm in your child/ren’s classroom (time is used to view your child’s work, see their desk, tidy tray and ‘chat’ with the teacher.

Profile Parent/Teacher Evening (appointment required)

Wednesday 27th April – 2.45pm to 8.30pm in your child/ren’s classroom. Please ensure you book your 15 min time slot / appointment on line. You should have received an informative letter explaining the appointment booking procedure and teacher interview process. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Mrs. Nancy Abolins on nabolins@parklands.qld.edu.au

Reports

All students will be receiving an ‘End of Semester Report’ at the conclusion of this term. This report will confirm what your child’s teacher informed you of at the Profile Preview Afternoon or Profile P/T Interview Evening or where they have given you regular general feedback as to how your child has progressed this term.

Kids learn what they live (‘more is caught than taught’).

by Michael Grose

Ever opened up your mouth and heard your own parents speak?

I’d frequently speak to my kids when they’d been less than perfect and I could hear my father speaking. I’d use the same words, same tone of voice and same body language as my father. The similarity was a little spooky.

This happens because the genes ‘from the past’ are very strong impacting not just our communication but our parenting as well. Kids copy their parents. Temperament, gender, genetic and birth order factors all play a part in shaping kids. They signify the differences between children’s behaviour, attitudes and interests. It’s in children’s similarities that the impact of parenting is seen.

Are all your kids tolerant, generous, kind and forgiving, perhaps some less than others? If so, there’s a good chance that you possess those qualities or, at least, one parent displays those qualities.

Children learn what they live

When kids live with gratitude, encouragement and affection on a daily basis they are more likely to adopt those behaviours themselves. In fact, those types of behaviours become part of their values system.

They may shy away from these behaviours in adolescence yet most kids will return to their core values in their twenties and beyond. Most kids find their identity only after they’ve rejected it.

Similarly, when kids live with criticism, mean-spiritedness and intolerance they are more likely to display those attitudes. Teachers and schools can impact children’s attitudes and behaviours but it can be hard to override the values that kids develop at home. Kids are more likely to reflect their parents’ attitudes and behaviours than those of their teachers.

Do you like what you see?

Take a good look at your kids’ attitudes, behaviours and values, particularly how they treat others. If you like what you see then give yourself a pat on the back because you’ve done a good job through both overt teaching and modelling of raising a person in your likeness.

If you’re not happy with what you see – I’m not referring to the out-of-character, poor behaviour that kids at times display due to fatigue, a stage or some other unknown reason (kids will be kids) – but if you cringe when you see some of the attitudes and behaviours that your kids routinely show then some self-reflection may be the order of the day.  That’s nothing necessarily to be ashamed of. Kids get front row seats to the very best and very worst of their parents’ behaviours. We just need to make sure that our best is amplified and our worst is minimised or, at least, not witnessed by our kids.

It helps to sit down with your partner or a trusted friend and review the type of person that’s on display for your kids every now and then. It will be a worthwhile exercise both personally and as a parent. As your kids are a reflection of you, start the reflection process by looking at the behaviours, attitudes and states of mind they have in common. If you’re happy with what you generally see daily, then you’re okay and doing a great job.

Now while students are at home and or on holiday would be a good time to observe and monitor these behaviours.

 

I pray that you have a good, well-deserved school holiday break whether you are at home with the children and family or away somewhere. May God’s peace, comfort, joy, protection and strength be yours through this holiday period.

Senior School Co-ordinator

It has been wonderful to finish the last half of Term 1 with the return of some normalcy with regular events like our live weekly Chapel services, excursions and incursions back in full swing and with parent visitors back at school events.

Staff have reflected on how students continue to demonstrate resilience throughout more interruptions to this term (COVID-19 and flooding around Brisbane). Largely we see that they haven’t been deterred rather they’ve adapted well by taking everything in their stride.

Academic Progress and Behavioural Notifications

As Term 1 wraps up, staff are busily grading assessments. Families can expect, at times, to receive behavioural notifications around academic progress which may be communicated for any of the following reasons:

  • Positive student behaviours, aligned to our College values
  • Absence concern
  • Incomplete work
  • Unsatisfactory result for summative assessment.

These communications are not punitive, rather the goal is to be a supportive measure to assist students in achieving academic expectations and fulfil their potential.

The purpose of these communications is not to admonish the child, far from it – it is about clear communication and building a relationship that is one of transparency and trust. By being informed, we can best work in partnership with the school and families.

Parent-Teacher interviews

Coming up next term are our parent-teacher interviews. These are scheduled for Tuesday 3rd May.

These events are so important for many reasons including getting to know your child’s teachers, seeing how your child is progressing, and talking through any plans about how teachers can further support and understand more about your child.

We also welcome and value your child attending the interviews with you.

Senior Support

If your child is feeling unsure about their Senior pathway or if you have any concerns with how your child is managing the senior load, please make a time to talk with us.

We have a great team of supporters so your child can work towards their God given potential and to know they don’t need to travel alone. It is important that there is a balance between academic demands, involvements in extra-curricular activities as well as time for relaxation and enjoyment.

We advocate that there are always options and various pathways in Senior College. Sometimes the most direct pathway from school to your child’s goal, causes unhealthy levels of stress. We encourage you to reach out and talk with us if you would like to meet and talk about options.

At Parklands, we have four distinct Senior Packages, each designed to provide options with the goal of bringing success as your children prepare for work or further study.

I do hope that you have a wonderful Easter holiday break with your families.

We look forward to seeing you in Term 2.

Middle School Co-ordinator

As we come to the end of Term 1 and look forward to a well-deserved rest, it’s interesting to reflect on the term that was.  This term has had pretty much everything in it – school closures, wild storms, iso/quarantine… and all the rest! I’d like to extend a heartfelt ‘well done’ to our resilient and courageous Middle School students, who have met challenges big and small, and continued to work solidly through to the end.  We are all very proud of them!  Some of my favourite things from Term 1 would be the hype and excitement around the Macbook rollout, The Year 9 Rite Journey ceremonies, Easter Chapel and the teachers’ crushing victory in the Teachers vs Students volleyball match.  As we break for the Easter holidays, the teachers & PCC staff are hoping that families have a restful break – it’s our advice that you do some soul-refreshing, fun things so we can come back together for an excellent Term 2.  Speaking of Term 2, it’s going to be a busy one!  In the first half of Term 2, we have a few key events to look forward to…

Year 9 Camp

Day 1 of next term, Year 9 students will jump on a bus and head off to camp at Bornhoffen. Camp in Year 9 is an important time for our biggest middle school students to connect & grow.  The Year 9 PC team are really looking forward to a fun, challenging and inspiring camp with our students.  Any outstanding camp permission forms should be forwarded to Student Services as soon as possible, please. Some key details as a reminder:

  • Tues 19 April – Thurs 21 April
  • On Tues, meet at Student Services at 7.15am
  • Hat & water bottle are essential as this is an outdoor camp
  • Check the home communication letter or PCC calendar for more information

Secondary Profile Evening

On Tuesday 3rd May, teachers and families have an opportunity to meet together to discuss students’ learning journey at school.  This is a great way to build connections between home and school.  The online booking portal will open to parents just after the holidays, keep an eye on your email for this notification.  We look forward to meeting with you then!

NAPLAN – Years 3,5,7&9

NAPLAN is an annual assessment that our Year 3, 5, 7 & 9 students participate in.  It occurs at school during school hours, and in middle school, students will be able to use their Macbooks through secure/locked web browsers.  The testing period begins on the 10th of May, further communication will be coming soon.  If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to reach out.

As we look forward to Easter weekend in the holidays, it’s a special time to reflect.  The story of Easter is a love letter from Jesus to each and every one of us, showing us with an unimaginably incredible act of sacrifice how much he loves us – 2000ish years before any of us were even born.  As you take time to relax & refresh these holidays, it’s my prayer that you will know the tangible love Jesus has for each one of us.

Luke 24:6-7 “He is not here! He has risen!”

Acting Middle School Coordinator

RITE Journey Calling and Departure Ceremony

On Wednesday night, 9th March, our Year 9 cohort celebrated the first major event of their Rite Journey program. The event included a trip out to Berrinba Wetlands for the Calling ceremony, where students show gratitude for their childhood and are called on their journey to adulthood through a few symbolic activities.

Upon returning to the College, students shared dinner with their parents/carers, and then participated in the Departure – a special opportunity for students to have important conversations and exchange letters with their parents/carers. This opportunity sees them reflect, but also look forward to their adulthood and encourages them to depart from immature behaviours of their childhood and grow.

Open Mic

Open mic is a lunchtime program run once a term where students get the chance to show their talents in an Arts direction. On 24th March, some singers and a guitarist from the senior school performed beautifully with their fellow students’ support. Open mic will be happening once a term.

Congratulations to Grace Pacurariu in Grade 5 who has recently been accepted into the Canto specialist group, a choir in the Australian Girls’ Choir. This is an auditioned choir which only accepts a small number of singers each year. Well done to Grace, this is an amazing achievement. We are looking forward to seeing your singing develop through this exciting opportunity!

Do you have a child in Prep 2023?

Prep

This term our Science unit was all about the weather and how it affects us. The preppies have explored windy, rainy and sunny weather by doing experiments and daily weather reports. Our mini meteorologists have certainly had some interesting weather to observe over the past six weeks! Our favourite part of the weather unit was Water Play Day. The preps planned what they would need to wear and bring for a day of outdoor activities including bubbles, slip n slide and slime. We were blessed with warm, sunny weather and the preppies had a ball. It was a great way for them to experience and reflect on how the weather can affect what we wear and do.

The preppies have had an action packed first term of school and we are all looking forward to more exploring and hands-on learning together next term!

Have a wonderful Easter break.

The Prep Team

Year 1

Happy end of term!

Year One has enjoyed our first term together, despite the need for a flexible routine.

A highlight for us has been learning to write information reports! Not only have we expanded our knowledge about many different living creatures, but we have also demonstrated what clever young writers we are! It has been a joy for us to watch the children discover what they are capable of.

Drama lessons have also given the children an opportunity to explore their creative sides. The children have had a wonderful time acting out small scenes from well loved stories. Mrs Bazley has done a fabulous job, encouraging the children to develop confidence in front of their peers!

Also this term, we have been all about numbers, numbers, numbers!! We have counted forwards, backwards, in 2s, 5s and 10s. We have located numbers on our 100s chart, made collections of numbers using paddle pop sticks and learnt how to find and place numbers on a number line.

Finally, we have loved being able to go back to Chapel this term. It’s been great to see the children singing, receiving awards and saying their memory verses again.

Thanks so much for following along on our learning journey this term. We are looking forward to Term 2 and can’t wait to show you more of what we can do!

Enjoy your Easter Break and take care!

Mrs Clausen, Mrs Brown, Mrs Mane, Mrs S and Year 1

Year 3

Year 3 have had an exciting and busy month during March. It was lovely to get back into a bit of a routine (despite some crazy disruptions) and to learn so many new things as we continue getting to know each other.

We have been so excited about our Science unit and have enjoyed doing experiments and learning about states of matter. The students thoroughly enjoyed investigating different materials and how and when they change state. We learnt some surprising things like how honey doesn’t go solid in the freezer and how coconut oil becomes a solid in the fridge!

We also enjoyed celebrating the National Day of Action Against Bullying by learning about the difference between conflict and bullying, and brainstorming how we can all be kind. We made an orange bracelet which we decorated and we also completed an anti-bullying word search, which is one of our favourite things to do in Year 3.

Now that we are in Upper Primary School, we can be trusted to work with our friends (mostly anyway!). All of the year threes love to sit with their friends and complete work in small groups of peers. We have also been enjoying Christian Living Skills which is the highlight of the week for many of the students!

Our narrative unit is coming to an end and all of the students have done an amazing job thinking of creative stories and writing in paragraphs. They are hoping to have time to publish their stories at the end of term.

Swimming Carnival was a highlight for many of our older year threes who sweated it out and did their best at swimming. They had a great day and there were many ribbons and splashes!

All of the students have loved the return to Chapel with all of Primary and have thoroughly enjoyed the worship, memory verse and awards! It is so much more fun when we can all celebrate God and each other as a whole Primary School.

We hope and pray you all have a relaxing and blessed break and we look forward to all being back together for more learning and fun in term 2!

Sport

Every year we start our interhouse rivalry with the swimming carnival. After a delayed start to the year we finally booked it in and we had a cracker of a day. 

We had the highest attendance record thus far for the swimming carnival and it was on show all day through house spirit and quality competition in the pool. There were stand out performances across the board with many records being broken. The team spirit was high with students dressing up for the occasion and cheers reigning across the event. Congratulations JOSHUA on taking out the day with 2177 points over SAMUEL with 1779 points. Thank you to the parents for their support on the day, and to all the staff and students who contributed to making the day one to remember.

CSSAQ Swimming Carnival

CSSAQ Swimming is a great opportunity for our students to showcase their school spirit and swimming skills on a representative level. This event allows students to participate as a school to achieve a great overall result together. Parklands had an outstanding carnival with our 9-12yrs coming 3rd in the percentage and our 13-18yrs division coming 1st in the same category. Individual results contributed to a great school result with many students claiming a top 3 result. I would like to give a special mention to the following students who achieved a top 3 overall age champion result:

🏅Marlon Moses – 2nd
🏅Chloe Bobermien – 3rd
🏅Hudson Spears – 3rd
🥇Charlotte Tam – 1st

All students swam well and contributed to the overall success of the Parklands Swim Team.

Thanks to the parents’ support on the day and to the students for upholding the CLEAR Sport Values as we continue to build the Parklands swim community.

Sport Representatives

Each year students have access to the Qld School Sport pathways where they can compete against students from all over QLD. This term we have had a number of students achieve some level of representation across a multitude of sports. We would like to recognise the following students for their effort this term.

Rep Gear Rollout

As we have introduced the new Parklands Representative gear this year, it has been great to see it being worn during training and at representative events. It’s excellent to see the whole college community getting on board with the Parklands Pride ethos “Stronger Together”. There will be more stock available mid Term 2.

We currently have limited spots available for before and after school care and advise families that a current 2021 enrolment is required to accept all bookings including emergency care bookings.

We look forward to assisting with all your care needs.
