During 1st to 2nd December 2018 PLC’s Chess Team represented Victoria in the Australian Schools Team Championship held in Adelaide.
The girls competed against other secondary state champions from across the nation and after two gruelling days, PLC emerged victorious with a perfect score of 20 out of 20 games, winning the Australian Schools Team Championship (Secondary Girls) for a third year in a row.
This equals the best result of any secondary girls’ school in the more than twenty-year history of the tournament.
