Western Suburbs Weekly - - News -

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.”
