Breaking News! A short segment about PLC Sydney's World Record attempt will appear on the 3News program, ABC3, on Friday 21 August at 6.50 pm.

Congratulations to PLC Sydney students, staff and families who have successfully attempted to break the Guinness World Record for the Longest Human Electrical Circuit. 

The total number of participants was 1345, which is 232 more than the previous record set in 2013 by Coulson Tough High School in Texas with 1113 people.

Students from Pre-Kindergarten to Year 12, as well as family and friends from the school community, were involved in the world record attempt.

To demonstrate the world record, an ‘Energy Stick’ was used, which produces light and make sounds when placed in an electrical circuit. The energy stick was held by the youngest and oldest student, Liana Deiri in Pre-Kindergarten and Jiaxin (Lenna) Chen in Year 12.


The result achieved is currently an unofficial record, which will be ratified by Guinness World Records in coming weeks.


A huge congratulations to Mrs Annie Martin, Mrs Linda Eades, the Science Faculty and everyone in the College who participated.  We are also very appreciative of the parents and friends who supported this exciting event.
