A PLC Boarding day is never an ordinary day.
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.
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:
|Monday to Friday|
|6.45 am - 8.15am||Breakfast in the Dining Room|
|8am||School Nurse is available|
|8.15am||Girls Leave for classes|
|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|
|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.
