PLC caters to talented student athletes by providing an understanding and flexible learning environment that fosters girls’ individual sporting potential and balances the demands of School life.
The philosophy of the Sports Excellence Programme is to encourage and support student athletes to be able to have a proactive approach to time management, which allows them to be mentally present to perform at their optimum when required both as a student and as an elite athlete. Our three-tier programme mentors student athletes who demonstrate an ability to compete at an elite level – national or international:
The programme provides:
- Mentoring and assistance in coordinating training, competition and travel commitments
- Assistance with development of effective time management skills and regular monitoring of study/training/social balance; and
- Negotiated PLC Sport training schedules to allow student athletes to continue to represent PLC in their sport in conjunction with their elite training.
