At home. At School.

A PLC Boarding day is never an ordinary day.
After classes, girls move to and from the Boarding House, participating in sports, music, art and a wide range of co-curricular activities offered at the school, before sitting down to dinner and an evening of study, activities and relaxation.
We believe in the importance of maintaining close connections with family and encourage students to return home regularly on the weekend if they live a reasonable distance from the school, or visit relatives who have been pre-approved by parents and guardians.
We would love to hear from you about your Boarding needs. Please contact Admissions on + 61 3 9808 5811 or email:

Daily Routines 

With so many girls all leading busy, active lives, a regular week-day routine is necessary to accommodate the needs of all students.

A typical week day looks like the following:

6.45 am - 8.15am Breakfast in the Dining Room
8am School Nurse is available
8.15am Girls Leave for classes
10.45 Morning Tea
12.50pm Lunch in the Dining Room
3.35pm - 4.15pm Afternoon Tea 
5.30pm Girls return to the Boarding House
6pm Dinner in the Dining Room
6.45pm Prep Time begins for Years 7-12
8pm Prep Time finishes for Years 7-12
8.30pm Supper
10.30pm Quiet Time in the Boarding House


Girls can sign out to go shopping locally any weekday after school, or further afield on weekends. Year 7 and 8 girls are accompanied on weekend outings by a boarding house staff member. Year 9–11 girls can go out together in small groups if leave arrangements are approved by Heads of Boarding. Younger girls go in small groups whilst Year 12 students sometimes go unaccompanied.

Boarders may change into casual clothes for the evening meal and uniforms are not worn during weekends.

Sharing meals is an important part of the Boarding experience

The Boarding House Dining Room is light-filled and situated with expansive garden views in the centre of the campus. All meals and snacks are prepared by Alliance Catering and the girls regularly suggest new menu items and meal choices.
