The venue for the Kodaly National Conference 2018 will be the Presbyterian Ladies’ College (PLC Perth), 14 McNeil St, Peppermint Grove WA 6011.
Presbyterian Ladies’ College was founded in 1915 and has since sustained an international reputation for academic excellence and outstanding success in preparing young women to lead active, purposeful lives.
Evidence of our Scottish heritage is apparent throughout the beautiful Peppermint Grove campus as well as in the distinctive Blackwatch tartan uniform and PLC Pipe Band. However, perhaps the most significant legacy of our Scottish tradition is a belief in educational excellence, combined with a whole-of-person approach to intellectual, social, emotional and spiritual development.
Today this continues to be the philosophical foundation on which a PLC education is based.
At PLC, every girl is given the opportunity to:
PLC students are encouraged to become critical and compassionate thinkers, to assume responsibility for their own learning and to be informed and engaged participants in local and global issues.
Underlying these precepts is the conviction that women can, and should, make a difference in the world.
At PLC we measure our achievements through theirs.
All students in Pre-Kindergarten to Year 8 receive a class music education, with the opportunity to elect further study throughout Years 9 to 12.
