The aim of Parents@PLC is to foster friendships within the School community.

We support the School’s ethos of a caring, warm and nurturing environment for the students, parents and the wider school community.

Parents@PLC support volunteers who take on roles that promote the friend-raising philosophy such as Year Representatives, New Parent Liaisons and positions responsible for organising other activities. Some of these are fundraisers; some are to provide social gatherings; others to provide support within the School community such as:

  • Orientation Days
  • Information Evenings
  • Welcome Morning
  • Quiz Night
  • Outdoor Cinema Evening
  • Open Garden Day
  • Parents Tennis Morning
  • Pastoral Care for families in need
  • Country Day Trip
  • Farm to Fork
  • Year 12 Father/Daughter Dinner Dance
  • Valedictory Dinner
  • Events specific to each sub school

Parents@PLC meetings are held once a term at 9.00 am in the Boarding House Sitting Room on View Street, opposite the Chapel. Tea and coffee is available from 8.30 am. At the conclusion of the meeting morning tea is served to allow time to catch up with friends and meet new parents. PLC’s Principal, Dr Kate Hadwen, attends most meetings to give an update of what is happening at PLC. There is also the opportunity to ask Kate questions. It is a great way to feel connected with the School and know what is going on. A representative from the Office of Communications & Engagement is also in attendance. Staff members and guest speakers from the PLC community attend meetings, providing Parents@PLC with an insight into life within the many areas of the School.

PLC parents are automatically members of Parents@PLC and welcome to attend the meetings. For further information please email
