A note about medical information: 

PLC Sydney has a legal duty of care to all its students. In addition, the College wants to provide optimal care for students on tour. We cannot provide this care without full disclosure of information about your daughter’s health and psychological well-being. In order for us to fulfil our risk management
responsibilities, we need to take into account any and all medical and/or psychological conditions students may have.

Full disclosure of this information about your daughter does not preclude her involvement in any tour but enables staff to be aware of any issues which may arise while on tour and therefore deal with them effectively.

All information will be treated in strictest confidence.

Please complete the following question carefully and openly. You may wish to follow up with an interview with the organising teacher or with the Director of International Studies.
