Your child’s education is perhaps the greatest gift you will ever give them, and this makes selecting the school your child will attend a significant decision. Many factors go into school selection, and one of the most important factors is finding the right fit for your child.
Presbyterian Ladies’ College, Sydney (PLC Sydney) is a school that prides itself on providing a warm and caring community to support your daughters during their education.
PLC Sydney proudly teaches philosophy and theology to help students develop strong relational connections based on respect and trust.
“Excellent teachers and a really warm, embracing community is what our community values the most. That, and the substantial enrichment and extension opportunities we provide here at the College,” said school principal Dr Paul Burgis.
Education anchored in well-being
Morning Connection Coaches are assigned to every student at PLC Sydney. A Morning Connection Coach is similar to a homeroom teacher. This person provides a constant presence throughout the year and will support your child alongside the chaplain, counsellors and the school’s well-being team.
“Every teacher is a well-being teacher, but more often than not, we find that the girls look to their peers for support first and foremost. I am immensely proud of the way our girls treat each other, and recognise when their fellow students need support. It’s a tone that is very evident throughout the school.”
A future-forward focus
The school also has a Student Futures Program which is designed to help your child start thinking about their long-term aspirations. The program begins in Year 5 and explores what activities your child likes before matching them to potential careers that could interest them. This exploration continues right through to Year 12 and follows your child as they continue to develop and extend their passions and interests.
The Junior School are also proud participants in the URstrong program. This program empowers students with the skills, language and self-confidence they need to develop healthy friendships. These skills provide a solid foundation for establishing and maintaining positive relationships and will see them through their schooling years.
A place for every girl
The school boasts a culture of magnanimity, which offers a sense of belonging and emphasises effort.
“One of the most important things we try to create here at the College is a space for you to belong. Whether it’s in the school musical, or an exchange program, or the tennis team, or the science or visual arts hubs – we celebrate every girl’s passion and try to provide the optimum environment for her to excel.
“We’ve got students who will end up being selected for State or Australian teams, which we’ll celebrate. But we also celebrate the girls who are coming last in the tennis tournament and are just having a go and having fun.”
