Madi Moar (PLC Armidale Graduate 2015) flourished in both Junior and Senior School at PLC Armidale.
"Madi excelled academically at PLC Armidale Junior School, but socially, by her very nature, remained quiet and reserved. When it came time to go to high school, we knew we would struggle financially to keep Madi at PLC but we also knew PLC was the very best school for her to flourish, and she did - Dux of Year 6, Dux of Year 12 2015 and Head Prefect 2015 - are testament to how the amazingly talented teachers and staff at PLC Armidale who nurtured, encouraged and supported our bright, shy little girl into becoming the strong and fiercely independent person she is today. None of this would have been possible without the Academic Scholarship Madi received in Year 5. For that we are forever grateful."
