Unable to visit Paris in person right now, Claudia and Georgia recently undertook a more local French experience with an audio walking tour in French on Melbourne.

Produced by The University of Melbourne and based on the ABC radio pod tour entitled Eat, drink, Melbourne, the girls discovered some fascinating and little-known facts about the city during their excursion.

Once they're able to travel to France again, we're sure that the girls might even suggest: De toute façon, Melbourne est mieux que Paris!


Recently a group of girls in Year 9 volunteered with Camcare in Camberwell.

The girls helped unpack over 800 bags of donated groceries.

They sorted and stacked the goods ready to share with families in need across the local area.


OIur footy girls are back at it again for the 2021 GSV AFL season!  We wish them all the best for the next few weeks ahead!

Last week Tiya, Grace, Tiffany and Claudia, members of the Interact Club of PLC, participated in the Rotary Baton relay celebrating the 100th anniversary of the group's founding in Australia.
