Congratulations to PLC’s 8th principal, Beth Blackwood AM, who this week was recognised in the prestigious 2022 Queen’s Birthday Honours list.
She received her award “for significant service to secondary education, and to youth”. We are extremely proud of Beth and congratulate her on behalf of every student and staff member she inspired during her time at PLC.
During her 18 years as Principal between 1997-2015, she promoted the importance of developing courageous young women and founded many initiatives and programmes, including our very successful Indigenous Scholarship Programme and the International Baccalaureate.
Beth recently responded to the acknowledgment of her award on LinkedIn saying, “I have been blessed with so many opportunities to contribute and am indebted to those who have supported and encouraged me along the way. It has been a pleasure to learn from, and work alongside, so many inspiring leaders, mentors, educators and students. So many just as worthy of commendation. I have received more ‘nuggets of gold’ than I have given. Thank you for sharing my journey.”
