Burwood VIC, Melbourne Eastern Suburbs

Some things at school just can’t be taught; the lifelong friendships, the discoveries that excite and the moments that matter.

At PLC, Boarding is more than just a place to live and walk to school. It’s a holistic experience that immerses our students into a warm, inclusive culture where they live, play, learn and thrive.

The Boarding House is situated within a garden-like setting at the very heart of our spacious and green 16-hectare campus. Boarders have access to the full range of school facilities programs and services as well as many opportunities to explore life beyond the campus and the many activities and adventures on offer. Within the residence, girls are nurtured in their physical, emotional and spiritual wellbeing by the staff, all of whom take an active and personal interest and help foster our uniquely supportive family atmosphere.

As girls progress through their boarding journey, they learn to live harmoniously together whilst being considerate of others and develop the life skills they need for life beyond school.

Boarding at PLC is a very special and social experience and our girls develop wonderful bonds and strong friendships that will last a lifetime.

We are currently offering Boarding Bursaries for girls in Years 7-12. To apply, please contact the Admissions on 03 9808 5811, or visit
