Hadwen new PLC principal
AFTER an international search, Presbyterian Ladies’ College has announced its new principal, who will take over from Beth Blackwood in Term 4 this year.
Kate Hadwen, who is currently the head of Senior School at The Peninsula School in Victoria, has been appointed the next principal of PLC.
PLC Council chairwoman Tracey Horton said appointing the new principal was a tremendous responsibility for the council.
“Kate is a respected educator who has pursued a career in education inspired by her own love of learning and her passion to empower young people to step outside their comfort zone and to flourish in our increasingly complex world,” Ms Horton said.
Ms Hadwen said she looked forward to supporting the school vision.
“My commitment to the PLC community is to support each girl to be the very best she can be,” she said.
“I want every girl to leave PLC bursting with confidence, trusting in her ability to make wise decisions, to influence the world around her, and have an understanding of how to bounce back in the face of adversity.”
