In March, the PLC Old Collegians’ Golf team, won the much-coveted Women’s’ Inter-School Golf Challenge Cup. PLC won the inaugural Challenge Cup in 1929, and although we have won it several times since, this is the first win for PLC in 40 years. The winning team, comprising of Michelle Hilbert (McKay 1973), Caroline Cox, Robin Collier (Wilson 1969) and Ann Turner (Waddell 1963), proudly showcased the magnificent solid silver Cup at the OCA’s annual Golf Day on 13 May at Royal Melbourne Golf Club. This year marks the 98th anniversary of the PLCOCA event.

During Term 2, Anne Walsh (Junior School Library Teacher), Lydia Low (Junior School Science Teacher) and Sally Tweddle (Classroom Teacher and Writer), organised an Author Visit in the Exploratorium for Sally's new series of books about girls in STEM. It was a great, high-energy event and the girls enjoyed learning more about writing and the importance of seeing girls enjoying STEM in stories - not just the traditional topics included in fiction for girls. They also collaborated on a STEM teamwork activity - trying to save Wilbur the worm!

Yesterday, on World Environment Day, the children in our Early Learning Centre found inspiration in the remarkable work of Dr Jane Goodall, particularly her dedication to chimpanzees and how she helps to look after our world. When asked recently what was the thing that gives Dr Goodall hope for the future, she answered, “Our young people”. When prompted about ways to contribute to a better world, our young learners voiced insightful suggestions such as “We could turn off the tap” (Lukas), “We can pick up rubbish and put it in the bin” (Sunday) and “We can look after animals” (Harper).
