New Principal Presbyterian Ladies College – 16 February 2018

Officemoderator, news

PLC knows how to mark occasions in style. Wyselaskie Hall was overflowing with girls and staff of the entire senior school assembled, together with many invited guests. We witnessed the commissioning of the school’s 11th principal, Mrs Dawn Clements. Hymns of praise, prayer, vows and speeches of welcome flowed beautifully to form an impressive service. The Moderator of the church, Rev Robert White and the Chairman of Council, Mr Russell Walley were at the helm as the service moved from the solemn part of commissioning to the warmth of welcome speeches and presentation of powerfully symbolic gifts. Principal Clements was obviously pleased to receive such items as the original 1875 enrolment register and an inkwell and quill to remind us from where this school has grown. And the reminder of where the school is going was clear as the recessional PLC Pipes and Drums led us to morning tea in the forecourt of two of the finest and most modern school buildings imaginable: the Learning Resource Centre and the Performing Arts Centre.

True to her motto, PLC displays that it’s the Law of God that is our light.
