PLC Armidale has never been a big school, yet it has played a significant role in the northern NSW region, having been one of the leading school for girls since its inception in 1887.
Its size has been its strength, having produced exceptional graduates over the past 132 years, in a very personalised, engaging educational environment.
“There is just something about PLC Armidale and the PLC Armidale graduate,” principal Nicola Taylor said.
“It may sound a little clichéd, but PLC Armidale has always ‘punched well and truly above its weight’ when it comes to graduate outcomes.
“The northern inland region should be very proud of the results it’s premier only all-girls regional school continues to produce.
“It’s not just the girls who achieve the top marks who are the measures of our success.
“It’s the girls who embrace the opportunities offered, develop the confidence to take on challenges and have a go at absolutely everything, like National Farmers Federation president Fiona Simson.”
There is a range of scholarships available including academic, music, creative arts, all rounder (including sport) and boarding, and for the first time, a future leaders scholarship.
“We are very keen to support families in our region in their quest to educate their daughters in their own backyard, in an environment which provides all the opportunities of a larger school yet in a smaller, accessible location in a more personalised, caring context,” Mrs Taylor said.
PLC Armidale is hosting it’s inaugural community open day on Friday, February 15, from 4pm to 8pm, which will showcase numerous co-curricular aspects across the entire college.
It will also feature a presentation for parents by Dr Sarah Mackay, a neuroscientist, and author of acclaimed book, The Women’s Brain Book and In Her Head.
The scholarship exam will be on Saturday, February 16, from 9am.
