The heart of a PLC Sydney education is about encouraging you to flourish and be the best you can be.

Governance, Policies and Reports

PLC Sydney acknowledges the importance of good governance in all our undertakings. 

The Role of College Council

The College Council is responsible for the overall governance of the College. It sets the strategic direction to ensure the College continues its long standing tradition of academic excellence.

Comprising approximately 15 members, the College Council is a combined council for both PLC Sydney and PLC Armidale. Council members are drawn from the College community and beyond, and offer a wealth of skills, qualifications and expertise.

Mrs Leah Russell is PLC Sydney's 11th and current Chairperson and the first woman elected.

The school reports an Annual Report to the Presbyterian Assembly.


Our policies ensure our students can safely grow and excel in all areas – academic, co-curricular, service learning, well-being, emotional and spiritual development.
