PLC Perth was founded in 1915 and has since sustained an international reputation for academic excellence and outstanding success in preparing young women to lead active, purposeful lives.
A day and boarding school for girls from Pre-Kindergarten to Year 12, PLC is a school of the Uniting Church of Australia and is located in beautiful Peppermint Grove in Perth’s western suburbs. PLC is proud to offer students three higher education pathways – the world-recognised International Baccalaureate, the WA Certificate of Education and the Vocational Education and Training pathway. The International Baccalaureate Primary Years Program is taught in our Junior School.
PLC was one of the first school’s in Australia to introduce an individual laptop program, which is integrated throughout the curriculum across all year groups. PLC is also an Apple Distinguished School.
Evidence of our Scottish heritage is apparent throughout the campus as well as in the distinctive Blackwatch tartan uniform and PLC Pipe Band.
Perhaps the most significant legacy of our Scottish tradition is a belief in education excellence, combined with a whole-of-person approach to intellectual, social, emotional and spiritual development.
Today this continues to be the philosophical foundation on which a PLC education is based. At PLC every girl is given the opportunity to:
• Develop an appreciation of intellectual challenge and love of lifelong learning
• Gain the confidence to question, challenge and be creative
• Give and receive warmth and human understanding
• Belong to a community in which to experience the beauty and joy of life
PLC students are encouraged to become critical and compassionate thinkers, to assume responsibility for their own learning and to be informed and engaged participants in local and global issues.
Underlying these precepts is the conviction that women can, and should, make a difference in the world.
A PLC education is infinite; it’s an attitude and approach your daughter will take with her for life. Our aim is to ignite her curiosity where she will discover her unique passions and strengths across a broad curriculum. At PLC we care for each girl and give her the abilities, skills and confidence that empowers her to become an inspiring woman.
