We work hard to foster connections with and amongst our Old Collegian community.

With a dedicated reunion and event programme, together the Old Collegians’ Association and the School help facilitate long-lasting relationships with Old Collegians who are located locally, interstate, and globally. Annual events, such as the Tartan Networking Event, bring together past students from Scotch College and PLC to network and give an opportunity to hear eminent speakers.

Younger Old Collegians are welcomed to events including the annual Year 13 Sundowner and 5 Year Reunion and continued reconnections take place every ten years via the Old Collegians Reunion Programme.

The Easter Service and the Founders’ Day Service run annually to celebrate the ethos of the School, whilst the Annual OCA Art Exhibition provides a chance for Old Collegians and PLC community members to come together to celebrate artists in our community.

The OCA also hosts a Welcome Event for daughters of PLC Old Collegians starting at PLC, together with their parents.

If you would like to be kept up-to-date with all the OCA events, please email your name, phone number, postal address, and email address to oca@plc.wa.edu.au
