Boarders Captain

'I can't express how grateful I am to have had you as my captain and have such a wonderful role model to learn from. My boarding life would've been so different without you and I will truly miss you a lot'.
Eunice, 2024 Boarders' Captain.

If you could offer advice or a tip to someone about to do their final year, what would it be?

An exam mark does not define your life, just try hard and have fun. Balance is key - you need to look after yourself to be able to do your best and for me, as Boarders Captain, it was also important for me to be able to care for others.

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

The day I was announced as Boarders Captain.

How important was it for you to balance your academic focus with other activities? eg co-curricular activities

Extremely important. It helped me maintain the balance between school work and social life (offering a much needed break from academic work). The social opportunities within these activities allowed me to deepen my relationships with my peers.

Sport was also very important to me at PLC Sydney. I received pocket citations for Athletics (2018, 2019, 2021 and 2022), Softball (2018), Touch Football (2018), Soccer (2019), Hockey (2021, 2022 and 2023), and Hockey Firsts (2021, 2022 and 2023), of which I am very proud.
