Principal's News from Mrs Fenske

Dear parents and friends,

Many children and adolescents worry a lot and suffer from anxiety. When parents, or other adults, solve all problems for children it not only increases their dependency on adults but teaches children to be afraid of making mistakes and lose self-confidence, and that is fertile ground for anxiety and depressive illness. So, how can we help children become courageous and confident problem-solvers?

Turn requests into problems to solve
Children become used to bringing their problems to parents or adults to solve. If you keeping solving them, they’ll keep bringing them. ‘Mum, my sister is annoying me!’, ‘Dad, can you ask my teacher to get an extension on my homework?’, ‘I can’t find my hat!’. Often it seems easier and quicker to simply jump in and help out. However, taking a problem-solving approach, causing them to resolve their own problems and take responsibility for their concerns will help them learn a valuable lesson, e.g. ‘What can you do to make her stop annoying you?’, ‘How can you approach this problem with your teacher?’, ‘Where do you remember using your hat last?’ A problem-solving approach relies on asking good questions. The first questions when a child brings you a problem should be, ‘can they handle this on their own?’, and ‘what can I do to help them solve the problem?’. Then ask questions and use prompting to encourage and teach them to start working through their concerns themselves.

Coach them through problems and concerns
If your child is having an argument with a friend at school and asks you to become involved, it can be tempting to intervene, meet with the teachers and find out what’s going on. This approach may, or may not, resolve the problem, but will teach your child to become dependent on you to resolve problems. Instead, you could coach your child to resolve the situation. Obviously, there are times when children need their parents to be advocates for them, but we also need to remember to make the most of the opportunities for children to speak for themselves. It is better to help your child find the right words to use and discuss the best way to approach another person when they have problems. These are great skills to take into adulthood.

Show a little faith
We can easily trip children up with negative expectations, such as by saying, ‘Don’t spill it!’ to a child who is carrying a glass filled with water. Of course, the child doesn’t intend to spill it, but that statement just conveyed your expectations. We need to be careful that we don’t sabotage children’s efforts to be independent problem-solvers. Remember to show them you have faith in them. (adapted from "Parenting Ideas Insights")
"Worry has more questions than answers, more work than energy, and thinks often about giving up. There’s not enough time, luck, credit, wisdom, or intelligence. We’re running out of everything it seems, and so we worry. But worry doesn’t work. You can dedicate a decade of anxious thoughts to the brevity of life, and not extend it by one minute. Worry accomplishes nothing. God doesn’t condemn legitimate concern for responsibilities but rather the continuous mindset that dismisses God’s presence. Destructive anxiety subtracts God from the future and tallies up the challenges of the day without entering God into the equation. Jesus gives us this challenge: “Your heavenly Father already knows all your needs. Seek the Kingdom of God above all else and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need”.
Matthew 6:32-33

News from Pastor Adam

It won’t be long now, and the mid-year school break will be here. While many will welcome the break from school, others are faced with all the work that needs to get done beforehand. For some, the workload is quite large and it’s a very busy and stressful time.

It is in times like this, when we get very busy and stressed, that we can overlook or not put aside the time for rest, for family and friends, and for spiritual nourishment. Busy is the enemy of peace. Busy steals precious time. Busy robs blessings. But it is precisely at these times that we should continue to trust in God’s goodness and providence and to bring our cares and concerns to him.
 
God says in Psalm 46:10, "Be still, and know that I am God." When we regularly spend moments alone with God we can truly feel His peace that surpasses all understanding. And, on a practical level, we have a moment of healthy rest.
 
Chapel at Peace Lutheran College
Chapel continues regularly for both Middle/Senior Schools on Thursday mornings, and for Junior School on Friday mornings. We have been blessed by having Miss Brittany Barkus assist in both chapels this term, and Mr. Chad Elliot in Middle/Senior chapels. Students also have the opportunity to be involved, including senior students using their musical talents to enhance our experience.

In Junior School chapel, the Preps treated us to some favourite children’s songs including “He’s got the whole world in His hands”, and the year 1 classes retold the story of Jesus’ miracle of feeding the 5,000.
The year 2 classes will be involved in Junior School chapel on Friday, 8th June. In the last week of term, we will have a closing chapel for the whole school on Friday, 22nd June at 2:15 pm.

Chapel is open to anyone from the school community to attend.

Worship services at Peace Lutheran College
Worship services for the Boarders and the wider school community continue to be offered regularly during the school term. On the second and fourth Sundays of the month, during term-time, there is a worship service at 9:30 AM in the Peace Centre, led by Pastor Adam. Everyone is welcome to attend.

At the time of writing this article, the remaining service at Peace Lutheran College for term 2 is June 10th.
There is morning tea and refreshments after each service. A free-will offering is gathered as part of these services, and this is donated to Australian Lutheran World Service.
God bless.

Senior School News from Mr Cummings

Year 11 and Year 12 students are about to embark on their block exams and are putting in a lot of effort to make sure that their term of hard work is showing dividends. School reports will be heading home soon and parents and student will have the opportunity to reflect on how well they have done in Semester 1. 
 
Year 11 students have been working hard to step up to the expectations of senior school but, as is typical at the beginning of their senior studies, one or two have struggled to manage the workload and pacing of assessment preparation. It is important to be organised with assessment timetables and get started early, however, we continue to see students putting off assignments until a number are due in a short space of time.
 
I would like to encourage parents to be aware of the assignment schedules, which are released on the website in the first few weeks of term, to support your son or daughter in managing these expectations. Yammer has proven to be an invaluable tool for communicating rapidly with students, and parents can support their children by reminding them to utilise this valuable resource.
 
Teachers are now putting the finishing touches to their comments and marking so that the reports are a current representation of how students are developing. We look forward to the opportunity, next term, to meet with parents and discuss how their son or daughter’s senior studies are going and perhaps come up with strategies to improve subject outcomes.
 
Careers Expo
All senior students attended the Careers Expo at the Showgrounds on Thursday, 24th May, which will have given them an idea of some of their options after school. Year 11 and Year 12 students who are considering future options had the opportunity to talk to university representatives, local employers and a number of local training organisations. Staff reported that the event was very good this year and that students gained a lot from the experience. Year 10 students, who were at camp at the time of the event, will attend next year and will soon be considering their work experience placements in term 3 and subject choices for Year 11.

Year 10 Camp
During week three, the Year 10 students enjoyed the excellent instruction and facilities of the Tinaroo Environmental Education Centre (TEEC) on Black Gulley Road at Tinaroo Dam. Activities included canoeing, raft building, history tours, abseiling and leadership activities, designed to improve confidence and develop team skills. On top of their physical effort, the Year 10 students were responsible for preparing meals for the whole group and more importantly tidying up afterward. Many parents would have been amazed at the domestic skills our students can demonstrate in the right environment. Students have been encouraged to reflect upon their time at the camp, to better appreciate their environment and celebrate who they are as individuals.
 
The Center staff were extraordinarily impressed by the behavior and effort of our students during the camp and the dedication of the school supervising staff. Thank you all for making it such a collectively enjoyable experience.
God bless,
Peter Cummings - Head of Senior School

Middle School News from Mr Elliott

When hard pressed, I cried to the LORD...
- Psalm 118:5a
While in graduate school, I heard a professor give a devotion on stress. His point was clear, we all experience anxiety, but the difference is what we do with it. Does stress become a motivator or obstruction in your life? That is, can we manage and direct our stress to accomplish tasks set before us?  This fundamental shift of using stress as a motivator can also be applied to our spiritual lives. That is, when we experience stress, does it push us closer to God or distract us from the grace He provides?


The State of Middle School
On the 27th of May, Billy H. and Tsubasa D. participated in Peninsula Tennis trials. The competition was held in Mareeba, and Billy will be traveling to Rockhampton in August to participate in State level representation.

Well done Billy!
Jordan H. (Year 7) will also represent Peace at state level athletics.
We are proud of you Jordan!

Student Reflections on Year 8 Camp
"I really enjoyed the Year 8 camp because there was a variety of different activities that were very fun and enjoyable. In the activities, you had to use teamwork and this was good because you were able to talk to people you might not have talked to before and everyone was able to work together and have fun."
- Jasmin W.

"I found camp fun as it was different to all the other school camps. It was isolated, the person running the camp, ‘Scot’, had to go to Mareeba every day to get water and food, everything was cooked on the fire and most rubbish burned on the fire. The cabins were metal frames with canvas over it. It was the closest we have got to camping in tents during a school camp. The activities were extremely fun. There was a zip line over the lake, canoes, inflatable obstacles on the water and more. My only criticism is that camp wasn’t long enough!" - Oliver Roper

"The best/funniest moment of the camp was probably the fun activities we did, that includes making newspaper dresses for a model from each team colour, it was fun to see everyone else's costumes. At the end, the models had a catwalk which showcased their team's dress... I think this was a fun way to use different ideas and work as a team according to the time-limit." - Charlotte S.

"I like how hard and fun camp was, it was different being with different people, but by the second day it was easy because we became a team." - Riley B.

"I really enjoyed the wipeout, because of the big inflatable equipment that was on the water. I also enjoyed the scavenger hunt, we had to look for little toy animals that were placed on trees, in tyres, on roads, etc. I really enjoyed camp because we socialised with friends we never socialised with before and getting to know them a lot. Also, the food was very delicious." - Alexia W.

Questicon
"On Monday, Middle School students were blessed to have Questacon, Australia’s National Science and Technology Centre in Canberra, deliver three STEM workshops at Peace. Students were set a STEM challenge: to follow the design process to create an aerodynamic structure from given materials that could remain in a vertical wind tunnel for more than 6 seconds. Each workshop focused on design thinking, testing and refining their ideas through prototyping a range of designs. Matt and Meg from Questacon were really impressed with the way our students participated and worked collaboratively to build their structures." - Mrs. Cummings (Head of Science)

Junior Language Ambassadors
"Students from Italian and Japanese classes attended the Junior Language Ambassador program at James Cook University to encourage students’ leadership skills. We listened to talks about inspirational international exchange experiences from students at various schools in Cairns. Speakers from the University discussed the importance of language education and shared stories by modeling effective study techniques. The day concluded with a lecture on language and identity, which included the need to be culturally aware when working in industries on the global stage." - Mr. Christopher Nicholson (Japanese Teacher)

Middle School Adrift
"Year 8 Geography students visited Palm Cove to prove if the concept of ‘longshore drift’ was evident at our local beaches. Students were required to work in groups to measure the distance their float moved along the beach as well as identify wind direction and determine sea conditions. This information will now be analysed as part of their Geography assessment task." - Mrs. Rebecca Bolton (Geography Teacher)

Chad Elliott - Head of Middle School

Junior School News from Mrs Rowan

Flexible Learning Spaces
21st Century learning is underpinned by teaching methods and spaces that are engaging and motivational and challenge our traditional view on classroom teaching and learning. Flexible learning spaces complement current and evolving pedagogies and provide creative and energised learners and teachers.

What is a “Flexible Learning Space”?
Flexible learning spaces are designed to be communal spaces which can be configured in a number of ways for specific learning experiences. This means they provide opportunities for people to work together in collaborative and exciting ways in order to promote the curiosity and freedom to engage with content in the way that suits students best. As parents, we understand that each child has their own strengths and limitations – a flexible learning model seeks to allow a ‘way in’ for every learner that they may not have had in a more traditionally designed classroom.

In a flexible learning space, you will find…
  • Desks and other furniture that can easily move to accommodate different needs and different activities
  • Areas that promote student and teacher communication and collaboration
  • Classrooms that encourage students to be active participants in their learning rather than passive vessels
  • Design that promotes a sense of inquiry, wonder and excitement instead of drudgery
  • Classrooms where the teacher can deliver flexible lesson content – lecture style, group style, presentation style or activity style
  • Design that challenges students to think and do more
  • A space that places a high value on the importance of respectful relationships and partnership rather than the need for discipline as a means of control
Currently, our Year 2 - Year 5 classrooms operate under this model as we aim to be at the forefront of innovative, research-based, quality teaching and learning for students that are going into a very fast changing, flexible, interconnected global world.
 
NAPLAN
Well done to our Year 3 and 5 students for their perseverance during these few days. It was wonderful to see the “have a go” attitude displayed. We are proud of your efforts!

Inter-House Athletics (Middle and Senior School)
Students in Years 6 to 12 have started their preparations for the 2018 Inter-House Athletics Carnival. This carnival is scheduled for week 1 of term 3 so a lot of preparation is occurring before the holidays. So far this year both Green Eagles and Gold Dingoes have won a carnival each – let’s see if Red Emperors or Blue Dolphins can step up and win the third and final carnival of the year.
 
2018 School Futsal Championships
Peace Lutheran College was able to field two teams in the 2018 School Futsal Championships held at the Redlynch Central Sports Stadium in week 7. A 16yrs boy's team competed strongly in seven games over the day and were completely exhausted by the afternoon. Despite this, they continued to apply themselves and represent the College with distinction. The 18yrs girl's team is scheduled to play on Thursday of week 7 and will no doubt play with the same enthusiasm, effort, and respect for the opposition as the boys displayed. Well done to players in both teams for taking the initiative to nominate and compete in this tournament.
 
David Hikila – Peninsula Basketball
As mentioned in a previous newsletter, Year 12 student, David Hikila represented Peninsula at the 2018 Queensland Schools Basketball Championships. The Peninsula team got off to a slow start in the tournament and were relegated out of top 4 contention. In the playoffs, they hit form and were able to win their remaining games to finish 5th overall. Congratulations to David and his teammates on their performances against quality opposition.
 
Luvan du Buisson – Cross Country
Year 12 student Luvan du Buisson was Peace Lutheran College’s sole representative in the TCN Cross Country team competing at the Peninsula trials on Friday, 18th May. Luvan just scraped into this team by finishing 6th at the TCN trials but showed his true running class to finish 5th overall at the Peninsula trials and earn a place on the Peninsula Cross Country team. This team will compete at the State Championships in Brisbane on 21-23 July.

Luvan then showed his determination and recuperative abilities to run in the Cairns 2 Kuranda train race only two days later with Mr. Bradshaw and Mr. Johnson. Great all round effort Luvan and good luck in Brisbane.
Yours in sport.

HPE News from Mr Dunsmuir

Congratulations Atalia Turner who placed 2nd in the recent Peninsula Cross Country trials and now goes on to represent the region in the upcoming state titles. We wish her all the very best!

The highlight of recent sporting events was that of the school’s participation in the Redlynch futsal competition. We entered a record 11 teams, nine being from the junior school, and our focus remained on having fun, sharing the playing time and trying to kick some goals. Most who played would agree that the competition was a positive experience. It also supplied some surprising results.

Never before had any of our teams made the semi-finals, but this year all that changed. Three of our sides achieved this with two of them going on to make the grand final. The first to play was our under 10 girls, who tried their hearts out all game, even with Sienna saving every attempt on goal the game ended in a tie. In over-time, our defenses finally gave way and the girls went down 3 goals to 1. Our little battlers walked off feeling as if they had won and were proud of their achievements.
The very next day the story continued as our very youngest competitors, the under nine boys, took to the pitches. In our first game, we ‘just’ lost nine goals to one. But, after that first game, the boys started really gelling well together and they ended up winning every other game for the rest of the day. This meant the ‘Dogs’ (hotdogs was the team’s nick-name) made the semi-final and would have to play the top team from the other pool, who they then went on to beat.

Now in the grand final, they would have to face the team that beat them by eight goals only four hours earlier. With Rueben scoring first, we held a tender lead all the way up until the last two minutes of the game. In that time, our opposition found the back of the net 3 times and the game was over, unlucky lads!
Don’t forget about the Junior School Athletics Carnival on the 21st of June to be held on the Peace sports fields.
Best regards,
Tom Dunsmuir - Junior School Sports Coordinator

Careers Corner

Did you know social demographers are forecasting our Gen Z students (born from 1995) will have five careers and 17 jobs in their lifetime? Compare this to baby boomers who worked under the ‘job for life’ mantra, many staying with the same company for well over 30 years. It is important to recognise these are times of considerable change and disruption; how we as parents viewed the workforce and career pathways will be very different for our children and students. At Peace, we are creating authentic opportunities for students to connect and engage with leaders in a range of careers, to learn about their successes, failures as well as understand how convoluted the pathway to success may be.
Year 12 Guest Speaker Program
Our Year 12 guest speaker program commenced this term with a range of guests talking to our students about their career pathways. Rhiannon Simcocks, a business consultant with Kleinhardt and head of the Young Cairns Chamber committee, had a strong message which really
resonated with our students. Her thought-provoking and engaging presentation encouraged students to become a 'doer', not to be ashamed of taking a career U-turn and making the dash count!
BLA Careers and Employment Expo
All Year 11 and 12 students attended the BLA Careers & Employment Expo at the Cairns Showgrounds. It was great to see the students engage with employers, universities and education providers to discuss their interests and ideas about their future.
CQU Experience Day
Just a couple of dates for parents and students to be aware of. Firstly, students in Year 12 who would like to attend CQU’s Experience Day can register their interest with me either in person or via email. This event will take place during the first week of school holidays. I would encourage all Year 12’s who are looking to enroll in tertiary education to attend this event.

CLOSING FRIDAY, 1 JUNE 2018 - UMAT Registrations
Secondly, UMAT registrations will close at 5 PM AEST on 1 June 2018. Current Year 12 students looking to study medicine, dentistry and health science degree programs will need to sit this test as part of their application process. Further information is available by visiting the UMAT website.
