What is your fondest memory of your time at PLC Sydney?

The fondest memories I made at PLC Sydney was during my time as a member of the Vietnam Immersion Tour. One of the best moments on the trip (apart from meeting the amazing, beautiful people at the disability centre) was definitely karaoke night with the PLC Sydney girls, Ms Hayek, Ms Underwood, Ms Eades and Ms O'Brien. We all sang the song ‘You're So Vain’ together whilst dancing and laughing and having fun just being together. This moment really made me reflect on my time at PLC Sydney, and I realised how much I am going to miss the beautiful girls I have spent 5 days a week with for the past 6 years.

What is the most valuable lesson you learned at PLC Sydney?

The most valuable lesson I learned at PLC would be how important strong friendships are. I have been blessed to have ended up in a tight knit group of girls here at PLC, and they are people that I know I will continue to be friends with for years to come. Especially with the stresses of Year 12, having friends that really do care about you is so special. Whether it is having a chat about the upcoming exam you're stressing about, going out for group dinners to have a break from studying, taking trips to the library together to motivate each other or comforting each other when mini "break downs" come about, my friends are the people that have kept a smile on my face throughout this year. I have learnt to never take my friends for granted, to make the most of all the special moments I have with them this year, and to always try my best to be a supportive, loving friend to them.
