Presbyterian Ladies’ College Sydney is one of Australia’s oldest and most respected schools for girls. We combine over 125 years’ experience with educational best practice to nurture women who are prepared to pursue a better world and worthier life.
We are proud of all the young women who have passed through the ‘green gates’ and who have gone on to make valuable contributions to society – both in Australia and overseas.
In 2001, The Sun-Herald ranked PLC Sydney fourth in Australia’s Top 10 girls’ schools, based on the number of past students mentioned in the Who’s Who in Australia – a listing of notable Australians. Among some of PLC Sydney’s most notable alumni, there are:
- Jessie Aspinall – first female junior medical officer at Royal Prince Alfred Hospital
- Marie Byles – first practising female solicitor in New South Wales
- Susan Dorsch – the first female professor in the Faculty of Medicine at The University of Sydney
- Olive Rose Fitzhardinge (nee McMaster) – breeder of heritage tea roses – patented 12 varieties in 1930s
- Carolyn Simpson – Justice of the Supreme Court of NSW
Former students of PLC Sydney are commonly referred to as PLC Sydney Old Girls and can elect to become members of the College’s alumni group, Ex-Students’ Union.
