Principal’s Message

Dear Parklands Community,

What a fantastic beginning we’ve had to this term! It has been truly exciting to witness the flurry of special events and activities that our students have engaged in since returning from the Easter holiday break. Our school community is buzzing with activity, which a testament to the enthusiasm of our staff and students.

I would like to extend a special note of appreciation to our student musicians and singers who participated in our recent Music Retreat and Concert. This event was a resounding success, thanks to the talent displayed by our students and the incredible support from our staff and parents. We are indeed fortunate to have such gifted individuals at Parklands.

Additionally, I must commend our students and staff who led our ANZAC Day services. It is a profound honour to be part of an institution that deeply respects and commemorates our ANZAC tradition, pausing to honour the memory of our soldiers, past and present. I am incredibly proud of the reverence and leadership shown during these services.

Thank you all for contributing to such a dynamic start to our term. Let’s continue this momentum as we move through the 2024 Academic Year.

As the winter season approaches, it is common for colds and other illnesses to become more prevalent among our students. We understand the challenges that working families face, especially those with dual incomes, when a child falls ill. However, we must prioritise the well-being of all our students and staff by preventing the spread of contagious illnesses.

We kindly request that if your child is feeling unwell, please keep them at home until they are completely symptom-free. This measure is crucial not only to ensure the speedy recovery of your child but also to safeguard the health of their classmates and our staff.

At Parklands Christian College, our health bay is well-equipped to provide excellent care to our students during the school day. Our dedicated staff are trained to dispense necessary basic medications, attend to injuries that may occur in the playground or during educational activities, and manage ongoing medical conditions. However, when it comes to contagious illnesses, the ethical and practical solution is to prevent exposure.

Sending an ill student to school can lead to further spread of germs, impacting more families and disrupting academic activities. Thus, we urge you to consider the broader community by keeping your child at home if they exhibit any signs of illness.

We appreciate your cooperation and understanding in this matter. Together, we can ensure a healthier environment for everyone at Parklands Christian College.

Head of Middle School

Term 2 is well and truly underway. We are almost a third of the way through already – quite unbelievable how fast the year is travelling.

Activities in Middle School

Term 2 continues to provide amazing opportunities for our students to learn through a variety of experiences and lessons. From sporting opportunities such as Cross Country and USL basketball, our students have already gotten their competitive edge sharpened. In week 5, we come together for the Secondary Athletics carnival – always a tightly contested event between Samuel and Joshua houses. I look forward to seeing the contest play out.

There are many curriculum experiences coming up this term for Middle School. Living History incursions for Years 7 and 8 will occur in weeks 6 and 7. Our year 9 Design students will be on excursion in week 4, and our Pavement Art competition happens later this term. Our year 9 students continue their Rite Journey this term with their Skills Days happen in week 6. Alongside this, our extra-curricular activities such as Cubing club, Zenith Club, Living History club (to name a few) continue to function with great experiences for all our students to enjoy.

ANZAC Day Commemorations

It was wonderful to see our years 5 – 12 students come together to commemorate ANZAC day for our college on 24th April. We were blessed with the involvement this year of the Jimboomba Cadets unit who provided the catafalque party for the ceremony, and participated in our drum march with Mr Nathanael Chapman, Mrs Alison Harbottle and secondary percussion students to commence the service. Our thanks also to the college wind ensemble and choirs for contributing to the service in very meaningful ways. It is important that we remember the sacrifice that was made for the freedom of generations to follow, and that we can teach our children to honour this selfless giving in your own day-to—day lives. 

Exams and Assessment

Our Middle School Exam block is occurring in week 8 of term 2: Monday 3rd to 7th June. It is important that students are present during this week to complete assessment in a timely manner. The timetable for the week is slightly altered to accommodate the subjects requiring exams to be completed.

Throughout the course of this term, some subjects will have assignments for students to complete. Due dates, draft due dates and any relevant checkpoints can all be found on PAC under ‘Learning’. I would encourage you to sit with your child/ren and talk through the work that is due this term, helping them to stay on track for successful learning outcomes.

Online Presence

More and more, our world continues to move online. Our interactions with others happen in greater frequency online than in person, and it is important to help our students navigate this shift.

Many of our students have access to social media apps and programs and engage is a lot of conversation via those platforms. Unfortunately, many of those conversations are treated as a little ‘removed from reality’ and as a result often contain subject matter and phrases which as less than ideal as peers encourage one another to stretch the boundaries of what should be socially acceptable. I would encourage parents to be aware of your child’s social media engagements. Have meaningful conversations with them around who they are engaging with, what topics are discussed, and if they are prepared to show you some of the screenshots of those conversations.

Our college encourages high moral standards and decisions where possible with our students. I also know that our parents want to be part of our college because they share those same ideals and values. Many of the research articles in our time continue to warn against the overuse of social media for our younger generation, and the negative influence that it is having. Could I encourage all of us to be active in this space with our students? The real, personal relationships that we provide to our children will far surpass in importance the digital connections that they may currently be a part of.

I pray that God continues to strengthen our college community as we continue together and continues to bless the opportunities that our students have to learn.

Head of Primary School

Welcome to Term 2! I trust you had a relaxing and enjoyable Easter break with your family and are ready for another exciting school term. Teachers at Parklands create many fun and engaging learning experiences to cater for all students. We look forward to partnering with you and your children as we support all students to develop their God given gifts and strive for individual personal bests.

We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us. If your gift is prophesying, then prophesy in accordance with faith; if it is serving, then serve; if it is teaching, then teach; if it is to encourage, then give encouragement; if it is giving, then give generously; if it is to lead, do it diligently; if it is to show mercy, do it cheerfully. (Romans 12: 6-8)

Remembering our ANZACs
“They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old;
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning;
We will remember them.”

Students from Prep to Year 12 participated in services on Wednesday 24 April, honouring our veterans and commemorating the Anzac Spirit. We are especially grateful for the Jimboomba Cadets who provided a catafalque party at our Years 5 to 12 service, and for our year 5 student, Hudson Martin, who participated in both services. We congratulate our Year 3 students on leading the Prep to Year 3 service so beautifully and respectfully. It was a moving tribute to those who served, reminding us of the sacrifices made for our freedom. Lest we forget.

Faith in Our Future

On 21 March, the final recommendations of the Australian Law Reform Commission were released. If the Government accepts the ALRC recommendations, Christian schools won’t have the freedom to preference people who share the same traditional Chrisitan values and beliefs when making employment decisions (click here for further information). I am sure you agree with me, that it is our staff who make our school AMAZING!

This week I had the privilege of attending a Faith in Our Future Town Hall Event, with many other Parklands staff, that brought together supporters of Chrisitian schools and their representatives in parliament. The impact of Chrisitan staff on students was shared in a variety of personal stories from students, parents and teachers. These personal stories, including the one from our year 12 student Priya Jaga-Abeyasekera, were personally and emotionally compelling, reiterating the importance of Christian staff in Christian schools. Further stories can be read on the My Christian Schools website and I encourage you to share your good news stories too, as we seek to pass on these good news stories to future generations.

Building a National Picture of Child Health

During May and June 2024, our school, along with thousands of others across the country, will participate in the Australian Early Development Census (AEDC). The AEDC is a Prep teacher-completed census which provides a comprehensive picture of how children have developed by the time they start their first year of full-time school. The AEDC is an Australian Government Initiative and is completed nationally every three years. Children don’t miss any class time while the AEDC is completed. The data collected through the AEDC is used by schools, communities and governments to better understand children and families’ needs, and identify the services, resources and support they need. AEDC data is reported at a school, community, state/territory and national level. AEDC results for individual children are not reported and the AEDC is not used as an individual diagnostic tool. Some teachers have found that completing the AEDC made them more aware of the needs of individual children and their class, and that the data was useful for planning for transitions to Year 1 and developing programs.


Thank you for ensuring your child is wearing the correct uniform and is neatly presented each day. As the days become cooler, please pay particular attention to jumpers. While the softshell jacket is designed to be worn with both sports and academic uniforms, the sports jacket is only worn with the sport uniform.

OSHC Update

Over the last school holidays we were given government approval to move OSHC back into the Prep Centre. While we were previously at capacity due to government regulations around indoor space, we can now open a further 22 spaces in OSHC. We would like to advise families that a permanent booking is the only way to guarantee a position in both before and after school care. Please contact Celine Clunn, our OSHC Coordinator, via email or phone 0478 111 207, for further information or to make a booking.

Primary News

Year 1

Year 1 have had a fabulous kick-start to Term 2! We were all excited to jump straight into our learning and have enjoyed being back from the holidays so that we can experience many more lasting memories together. We have been exploring seasons and the weather, participating in some really rich conversations about how our world works and just how incredible God’s creations are. We’ve studied clouds, gone on nature walks, created artworks and enjoyed many books and videos to grow our knowledge.

In Maths, we have been practicing using ten frames to help us skip count by 10s, as well as learning how to collect and display data. We’ve become excellent at using tally marks and can count collections faster than a flash.

Colour Run was definitely a highlight and everyone was full of laughter as we raced around the track getting as colourful as possible. Thank you to all our amazing families and friends who came to cheer us on, and for all the donations that we know will make a huge difference!

Until next time,

Blessings from the Year 1 Team

Year 2

Hello! It has been a fun-filled start to term 2 for Year 2!

The Colour Run was a wonderful, super exciting afternoon for our first week back. The children were full of energy as they ran through the course several times, laughing and enjoying themselves as they were sprayed and squirted with colours galore!

We have spent some time learning more about informative writing and are soaking up many interesting facts about the creatures we are researching. The children have been learning the difference between facts and opinions and are beginning to create their own written reports.

Math has been an area for us to stretch our thinking as we delve into reading quarter past and quarter to the hour time on both analogue and digital clocks. Practice makes perfect!

Last week, we also commemorated ANZAC Day with our class and our school. The children reflected on what ANZAC Day means to them and we looked at the important meanings behind symbols connected to the ANZACS.

We are excited to see what the rest of term 2 has in store for us and look forward to sharing more with you all soon.

Until next time, take care!

Year 2 Team

Year 3

Year 3 had an exciting April this year! A huge highlight for our Year 3’s was the opportunity for them to lead the ANZAC ceremony for the lower Primary school. Some students were in charge of speaking at the front, other students acted like ambassadors and other students sang in the choir. All of the students stepped up in these roles and set an amazing example to our younger students. Even those students who didn’t have an official role impressed us with their leadership skills by showing how to be respectful and responsible to the younger students. It was an excellent experience for all of Year 3.

We all had a blast at the Colour Run! The older students got to show their running skills in Cross Country and earn a point for their house and all of Year 3 got to have fun and raise money for a great cause. Of course all of the students loved to watch our heads of school get slimed!

Year 3 have enjoyed getting outside for our Science unit this term. We are studying living and nonliving things and have had multiple opportunities to observe, collect, sketch and sort living and nonliving things around us.

Dance has been fantastic! Year 3 have been working with an outside agency to choreograph and learn a dance which will be performed at the fete. They are enjoying learning new things and having new opportunities for showing what they learn.

We are looking forward to getting into more of our learning as we enter the middle of the term. We also can’t wait for the fete! Thanks for the way you support your students day in and day out during the term, we appreciate you!

Year 3 Team

Year 4

Year 4 has enjoyed an event filled start to the term. We were so impressed with not only our students’ athletic abilities but also their sportsmanship. Our students encouraged, helped, and cheered each other on throughout the day. The Colour Run was so much fun. A great celebration to finish our fundraiser with.

The students also visited St Helena and for many students it was a first. First time on the island and first time on a boat. Students learnt about the penal colony built in the 18oos. I think every student agrees being a prisoner in the 1800s was awful!  

Many of our students also participated in the Music Retreat. What a wonderful way to encourage the students on their music journey. From all accounts, the students thoroughly enjoyed the days, and the end performance was fantastic. 

Interwoven amongst all the events students have begun their term classwork. This term the students are delving into the author’s toolkit and working out how they weave their stories in narrative writing. In mathematics students are focusing on a variety of topics including angles, fractions, and the language of chance. 

It has been an awesome start to Term 2!

Blessings, Miranda, Julie, Janine and Alicia.

Year 5

It has been a busy start to the term for our year 5 students! It started off with a great deal of excitement for the annual cross country. They ran and cheered each other on with immense enthusiasm and enjoyed the tug of war. We were all thankful for the beautiful weather. The day finished off with the bright and exciting Colour Run. It was so great to see students running and smiling through the course for such a great cause. Dance was another sensational addition to this term’s curriculum and such a fantastic way to warm up on the cooler mornings we’ve been having. Finally, we celebrated ANZAC Day with a moving and heartfelt assembly. Amongst all this fun, we have also begun our Persuasive writing unit in English, an Operations unit in Maths, Democracy in HASS and Adaptations in Science.

Fox Superflow 2024

Several years ago Mr Cully approved the purchase of a fleet of mountain bikes for the school to use on our very own mountain bike track. We have been seeing this initiative gain momentum over the last few years but this April we reached a new milestone. The Fox Superflow is a series of races that take place across the country, with both local and interstate racers riding to experience the joy of gravity enduro – riding down the best trails across the country. Winners get to take home some prize money and they accumulate points in the series too. Riders set up and race their own bike and their race times are updated via satellite the moment they cross each finish line. It is a fantastic sport that encourages people to get out and enjoy the great outdoors, plan and organise essential equipment for a journey, build resilience and positive relationships.

There are some very keen mountain bikers in the Parklands community. On April 20, two staff members and three students from Parklands competed in the Fox Superflow at Mount Cotton, Redland Bay. Kai Stevens & Riley Holmes raced in the U15 category and Connor Holmes was in the U17, Mr Edwards carved it up in the Veteran (30+) and Mr Ashley enjoyed the flow in the Masters (40+). All riders had a great day with a number of top 10 times and personal records being achieved. Well done in particular to Mr Edwards who finished inside the top 10 in his category.

We look forward to seeing the Parklands mountain biking programme go from strength to strength. We have social rides once a month which is open to Parklands students (Grade 5 and above) and their parents, lessons in primary & secondary and there are some more local Fox Superflow races to do in 2024 too. Some closing thoughts: remember to always ride within your limits, do a sighting run on every trail before you try to do it properly and have fun!

PCC Health Bay

As we move into the colder months, it’s time to gear up against the flu season. Influenza, or the flu, can be particularly harsh on children, which is why we want to ensure everyone stays healthy and happy.

We’re excited to inform you that the Queensland Government is offering free Influenza vaccinations for all Queensland residents! This initiative is a fantastic opportunity to safeguard your family against the flu’s potential impact.

Why get vaccinated?

  1. Protect Your Loved Ones: Influenza can be severe, especially for children, the elderly, and those with underlying health conditions. Vaccination reduces the risk of catching the flu and its complications.
  2. Keep Our School Community Safe: By getting vaccinated, you’re not only protecting your family but also contributing to a healthier environment for everyone at our school.

How to access the free flu vaccine:

  • Check with Your Healthcare Provider: Your family doctor or local healthcare provider can administer the vaccine.
  • Community Vaccination Clinics: The Queensland Government has set up various clinics where you can receive the flu vaccine for free. Check with your local health department for details.

Let’s work together to keep our school community healthy and resilient this influenza season. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to protect your family for free!

For more information on the free Influenza vaccination initiative, visit Queensland Government’s website.

Colour Run

Last Wednesday, Parklands hosted its 2nd Annual Colour Run, a vibrant event serving dual purposes: raising funds for Bloom Asia and supporting the Cambodia Youth Camp. Bloom Asia, a not-for-profit organization, is dedicated to empowering survivors of sexual exploitation through vocational education, fostering healing, hope, and purpose. Parklands shares a profound connection with Bloom, as they have played a pivotal role in shaping our Mission’s program, with the Cully Family having spent three impactful years in Cebu while serving with Bloom Asia Cebu.

The Colour Run aimed to raise both awareness and funds for Bloom while also contributing to the upcoming Youth Camp in Cambodia. Scheduled for December, this initiative will bring a Christian Youth Camp experience to 100 underprivileged village children at Shalom Valley, Kep—a purpose-built campsite.

Our Outreach Captains, supported by the Student Outreach Club, were instrumental in generating excitement and participation for the event. They engaged with students during Primary Chapel presentations, competitions, and direct interactions with Secondary students during PC sessions. Throughout the day, these dedicated Captains, alongside the Student Outreach Club, worked tirelessly to set up, assist participants, and ensure the smooth running of the event.

The Colour Run was not only a fundraising success but also a memorable day filled with laughter and camaraderie. Even our Heads of School joined in the fun, willingly becoming targets for vibrant splashes of colour! Some of our teachers even volunteered to be “pre-slimed” in the weeks leading up to the event, adding to the anticipation and excitement.

We are thrilled to announce that our collective efforts resulted in an astounding fundraising total of $25,177.50. This remarkable sum will undoubtedly have a life-changing impact on Bloom Asia, and we are incredibly humbled and grateful for the generosity of our College Community.

Special thanks go to the Logan West Fire Brigade for their enthusiastic participation and support throughout the day. Their presence added to the joyous atmosphere, and we look forward to welcoming them back next year.

It’s important to note that 30% of the funds raised will be allocated to the School Fun Run company. This portion covers expenses such as prizes for students who meet fundraising goals, coloured powder, event resources, advertising materials, and the setup of inflatables and sound equipment.

The success of the 2nd Annual Colour Run not only demonstrates the generosity and spirit of our community but also highlights our commitment to making a positive impact both locally and globally. Together, we are truly making a difference.

Thank you to everyone who contributed to this incredible achievement!

We Need Your Help – Join Us in Making a Difference:

Sponsor a Cambodian Child’s Camp Experience Today!

In December this year, our dedicated team of 27 Parklands students and staff will embark on a transformative journey to Cambodia. Our mission?

But here’s where we need your support! Your sponsorship will enable us to make this vision a reality. By sponsoring a child to attend camp, you’re not just providing them with a fun and enriching experience; you’re offering them hope, empowerment, and the chance to discover their worth and purpose. Join us in creating lasting change. Sponsor a Cambodian child today and be a part of something truly special.

The Parklands Fete isn’t just any ordinary event; it’s a celebration of everything that makes our school community special. From thrilling rides to delicious food stalls, captivating performances to engaging games, there’s something for everyone to enjoy. It’s a day where memories are made and friendships are strengthened.

But behind the scenes of this spectacular event lies a crucial element – the dedication and support of our wonderful parents. The success of the Parklands Fete relies heavily on the generosity of volunteers who selflessly donate their time and energy to ensure everything runs smoothly.

This year, we’re reaching out to our incredible parent community to lend a helping hand. Whether you’re a master at manning the BBQ, a whiz at organizing games, or simply eager to be part of the action, there’s a role for you at the fete. Your involvement not only enhances the experience for everyone but also reinforces the sense of unity and togetherness that defines Parklands.

Volunteering at the Parklands Fete is not just about ticking off a task list; it’s about being part of something bigger than ourselves. It’s about creating cherished memories with our children, forging new friendships with fellow parents, and demonstrating our unwavering commitment to our school community.

So, why not seize this opportunity to make a difference? Whether you can spare an hour or commit to the whole day, your contribution will be invaluable in making the Parklands Fete a resounding success. Together, we can ensure that this year’s fete is the best one yet!

Parklands Kid’s Church

This month the kids performed for the first time in front of the church. I was bursting with pride to see all the kids having fun singing and dancing to Jesus is Alive. Well done to all the kids, especially those that were feeling anxious but still joined in with the fun!

Kids church is all about making connections with the kids as we share with them about Jesus. Over the last few weeks, we have been sharing with the kids the importance of caring for each other is more than winning an argument. To stop and ask yourself, how would you like to be treated in a situation? Help others make peace by being the peacemaker.

And do your best to live at peace with everybody. Romans 12:18 (CEV)
