Following her untimely death in 2015 after a long battle with cancer, the family and friends of PLC Old Collegian, Liz Water (1984), have established the Elizabeth Waters Memorial Travel Scholarship to honour two of Liz’s great passions in life: excellence in child public health and travel.
The Scholarship will assist with expenses associated with attending a conference or other event, in Australia or overseas associated with those fields of endeavour.

I am delighted to be here today with you all in the ‘Betty Caldwell’ Hall – as Betty Caldwell –was Anne Gifford’s mother and Anne was my best friend at PLC. Betty was a wonderful best friend’s mother and my favourite Betty story has to be the time she turned up to a parent-teacher interview at Scotch College and insisted on calling the famous Mr Bond, “Mr Chesty”, throughout the entire parent-teacher interview.
Our week started on Monday with a massive power outage on Burwood Highway, which left all but the ELC without power from 6.30am until 9.30pm. It was a challenging day for us all, but one which highlighted the resilience and ‘get on with it’ attitude of PLC girls and staff, as everyone pulled together to find good solutions to potential problems that emerged and to support each other through any difficulties.
On Friday 31 march, 56 PLC Old Collegians, partners and friends gathered at the Rainforest Room at the Melbourne Zoo to hear guest speaker Dr Sally Sherwen (2004) speak on her research into new frontiers in animal science.
It was a captivating and inspiring presentation and Sally was joined by her mother Sue Reddish (1975) and grandmother Judy Reddish (Harris, 1951) - three generations of PLC Old Collegians.
