When the Music Fades There is a song we sing at the school from time to time called, When the Music Fades. Many of you may have sung it over the years too. A stanza of that song says: Ill bring you more than a song. For a song in itself ,is not what you have required. You search much deeper within, Though the way things appear, Youre looking into my heart. Its talking about finding the deepest motivator, attitude, or desire. We spend so much of our time presenting an outward appearance that does not accurately portray whats happening deeper within. When it comes to our students, we spend a lot of time searching much deeper within. To effectively teach and help students, we must look through the way things appear and ask what is really happening. So often, a hard brash exterior is not much more that a faade that covers a fear or insecurity. Someone who appears as meek, in fact, is an individual of great strength. Sometimes we do not consider ourselves worthy of grace and forgiveness and as such, present an exterior that seems not to care. But deep within our hearts desire is very different. When we work with students, our aim is to search much deeper within; to ask questions that challenge the way things appear; and try to establish their hearts desire. When we do this, we can better help them as they journey through the ups and the downs that make up school and life more broadly. Principal Transition Update It is with a measure of sadness that I am able to announce that my time at PCS will officially wind up at the end of this term. My last day serving the PCS community will be the 4 April. Mr Kenneth McAllister will be in the hot seat Day 1 Term 2. It is a privilege to serve you as Principal and although I am looking forward to new challenges and serving the Lord at Mararra Christian College, I will miss PCS. I am very much looking forward to returning from time to time as a Dad. Thank you for all your support, encouragement, and prayers. It is and has always been greatly appreciated. Primary School Swimming Program Years 1 to 6 only 10 March21 March The Swimming and Water Safety Program, conducted by the RLSSA NT, will be at Palmerston Leisure Centre. More details to follow closer to the date Please also note, the Swimming Carnival will be held on 26 March. Car Park Conundrums The start of the year is always a busy time in our car parks. We have two peak times in our pick up zones each day and although they are relatively short, they are very busy. Parents can make these times much easier and safer for everybody if they follow these simple expectations. Main Car Park: The main car park is used for: Parents parking and getting out of their cars. PCS Bus pick up and drop off. Students waiting for parents in the main car park must wait outside the library where there is supervision. Students are not to wait outside the office and will be redirected to the library if they loiter in this area. The Kiss and Go Area: The Kiss and Go Area is used for: Picking up and dropping off students only. Parents are not to park and leave cars unattended. This causes congestion for parents who use this area correctly and problems for the large buses that use this facility. At some stage the Kiss and Go area will be redeveloped to provide extra parking for parents allowing them to park and leave their cars. It is anticipated that this work will be completed by the middle of the year. Until this project is completed, parents wanting to park and leave their car must use the main car park. Afterschool Cricket For any student who is interested in playing Cricket, we have an afterschool program available for grades three through to six commencing on Thursday 20th February. The program will be running for 7 weeks between 3:15pm to 4:15pm under the shade shelter. There is no cost involved, but spaces are limited. We are also looking for a Supervising Coordinator to assist with the program. If you are interested, please contact the office.
