In line with the College Council's vision for PLC’s future, a historic redevelopment of the campus's facilities has transformed the College into a leading, twenty-first-century learning and experiential school.
The new Performing Arts Centre
The Performing Arts Centre is the most significant development in the history of the College. Currently under construction and due to open in 2017, this magnificent new facility will house performance spaces that combine state-of-the-art design with leading acoustic technology to revolutionise the way in which theatre and music are taught and performed at PLC.
The new Drama Room is designed to accommodate the full range of theatrical education while the new music studio and performance rooms will facilitate the wide spectrum of PLC’s musical program which engages more than 900 students each year.
The centrepiece of the new development will be the beautiful, 550-seat, show-piece auditorium. Finished in intricate wood panelling, this exquisitely designed space will bring out the very best of our students’ talents, and give them an outstanding platform to showcase them.
The Learning Resource Centre
Our new Learning Resource Centre houses a modern two-storey Library, Audio Visual (AV) and Information Technology (IT) laboratories, as well as teaching classrooms. Small group study spaces and café-style break-out zones complement this engaging learning environment, a popular spot for students looking for comfortable, quiet areas.
The Year 7 Centre
The Year 7 Centre provides girls with a modern, custom-designed environment that supports their wellbeing and unique learning requirements.
The Centre facilitates a structured, welcoming transition for girls from the Junior School and those new to PLC, and is one of the first locations the girls develop a physical connection to. It caters for whole-year-level activities, class and group events, and provides spaces for girls to simply sit, chat and relax.
Our new Science Precinct
Girls at PLC are highly engaged in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) subjects and in particular, Science. Our fully transformed and state-of-the-art science laboratories feature modern surfaces and the very latest scientific and technical equipment.
The Years 8 and 9 Precinct
The Years 8 and 9 precinct has seen the complete transformation of all classrooms, studio and seminar rooms, recreational spaces and transition spaces.
The Boarding House
Featuring modern individual bedrooms for Years 11 and 12 girls, and stylish bedrooms for girls in Years 7 to 10, the PLC Boarding House incorporates recreational rooms where boarders can relax, chat, play games, attend chapel or watch big-screen movies. There are also music rehearsal rooms, study and computer rooms and a spacious exercise room.
The Junior School
Our Junior School comprises light-filled classrooms with flexible learning spaces as well as custom-designed areas for Drama, Music, Art, Library and Physical Education. The Technology Centre provides the latest tools for students including robotics and a green screen for developing videos and digital content. Two Music Rooms offer opportunities for rehearsal and tuition, whilst the Art Room provides a bright, sunlit and inspiring environment for students to work creatively.
Spacious lawns and cultivated garden zones feature throughout the Junior School, and there are numerous playgrounds and specialised equipment for fun and play.
The Early Learning Centre
The Early Learning Centre (ELC) offers a warm, welcoming experience from the moment children take their first steps at PLC. Each room is spacious, bright and beautifully maintained with purpose-built, modern facilities. The grounds around the ELC provide the ideal place for children to play and explore in a safe and motivating environment.
The Hockey and Tennis Centre
A full-sized, Olympic standard, synthetic hockey and tennis field provides PLC students with unparalleled sporting opportunities for many cross-surface sports, all year round.
The Aquatic Centre
This purpose-built centre includes a senior pool, pools for younger children and a diving centre. It caters for swimming and aquatic programs and competitions for girls from the Early Learning Centre through to Year 12.
