PLC Sydney's Co-curricular Program is one of the broadest and deepest programs of any school, with an extensive and engaging range of artistic, cultural, sporting activities and clubs.
At PLC Sydney we have an outstanding Co-curricular Program. As well as catering to individual needs and interests, co-curricular activities support our girl’s academic, social, emotional and physical wellbeing.
Girls can learn a new skill, or discover and develop talents and interests they never knew existed. It helps them develop initiative, fosters teamwork, promotes leadership skills and builds confidence. It also gives them the opportunity to form new friendships outside their peer group—and most importantly, they are fun!
No matter what you love doing, PLC Sydney’s Co-curricular Program has something for you!
Not a moment of the day is wasted at PLC Sydney.
Over 28 clubs meet each week, ranging from Art and Design to Science Enrichment, from Writing and Publications to Pipes and Drums, from Leaders Future Problem Solving to Rhythmic Gymnastics. There really is a club for everyone. We are a busy school and all girls are encouraged to get involved in whatever co-curricular activity interests and excites them. The only challenge is trying to work out how to fit them all in!
Co-curricular activities run before school, at lunchtime and after school every day. The huge range of activities and clubs on offer at PLC Sydney add to the rich range of experiences for our girls. Excursion, incursions, workshops and service learning opportunities, add another dimension to the co-curricular program, as girls develop the adaptability to confidently face and respond to new challenges in their own lives through these experiences.
