The School

Situated on 20 hectares of beautiful park-like grounds on Sydney’s upper North Shore, Pymble Ladies’ College is a non-selective, private, independent school for girls from Kindergarten to Year 12, with boarding available from Year 7. 

Pymble is divided into five separate schools on the one campus. Each of the schools has its own Head and Deputy Head of School and each school has its own distinct precinct. Five schools on the one campus provides more leadership opportunities and additional age-specific academic and personal care for each student.

The values and the ethos of the Uniting Church in Australia provide the foundation for dynamic, engaged learning at Pymble, with the College open to girls of all religions.

The Project

Poet Eileen Chong visited Pymble Ladies' College NSW to work with the students on the Toilet Doors project, a learning resource developed by The Red Room Company that explores guerrilla poetry.
