The PLC Old Collegians’ Association is hosting a 'Safari Dinner' in the at the Melbourne Zoo, with special guest speaker PLC Old Collegian, Dr Sally Sherwen (2004), Animal Welfare Officer at Melbourne Zoo.
Dr Sherwen is an animal welfare specialist for Zoos Victoria and a researcher at the Animal Welfare Science Centre at the University of Melbourne.
Sally has a strong interest in human-animal relationships. She has researched the use of interactive iPad games with Orangutans and the effect of visitors on meerkats and monkeys.
This week the girls in Year 10 engaged in a very special Q & A session with two guest Old Collegian speakers – Catherine Phillips and Emily Cheung. It was all part of our week-long Year 10 Bright Stars program at PLC.
This program assists girls in their transition to the senior years at PLC. Through a series of carefully considered and planned activities, the program aims to equip them with the knowledge and skills needed to support their long-term personal health and wellbeing, and maximise their academic potential.
