General Comments:PLC is modern Melbourne, a school for today’s girls with a rich heritage, a welcoming community and an exciting future. Founded in 1875, PLC has a proud tradition of producing young women of the highest calibre who go on to make a significant contribution in their world. We instil in girls a love of learning within a broad stimulating curriculum that celebrates encouragement, respect and self-discipline. Our outstanding holistic education focuses on each girl’s personal growth and leadership. Our staff are highly involved in their students’ learning journeys and focus on the individual student, nurturing and affirming girls, enabling them to achieve their personal goals.
At PLC, girls are also encouraged to stretch themselves and become critical thinkers and problem-solvers, able to look outside themselves at the challenges facing their world and take responsibility for helping and contributing where they can.
