The MLC Old Collegians’ Club (OCC) was established in 1904 to foster ongoing relationships between all Old Collegians and between Old Collegians and the College.


The OCC seeks to keep alive College friendships through a range of reunions, networking events and other social gatherings.

 

President's Message
I am honoured to have the opportunity to represent and lead the alumnae members of the MLC Community. 
 
It would be remiss of me not to acknowledge the enormous contributions of OCC volunteers past and present. I would particularly like to thank our Immediate Past President, Penny Pavlou (1979), for her tireless work, enthusiasm and leadership that has left the OCC in a much stronger position for the future. 

My own relationship with the OCC is built upon a desire to give back to a community which provided me with such remarkable opportunity. During my term as President, I will endeavour to explore how Old Collegians can continue to benefit from being members of the MLC Community, even after they have the left the College. This will include expanding our existing events and programmes to cater for more of our diverse Old Collegians and a renewed focus on developing the OCC as a professional as well as a social network. 
 
All students who attended MLC are automatically provided membership to the Old Collegians' Club and I encourage each of them to make the most of these opportunities and events that are held for MLC alumnae. I also encourage all Old Collegians to consider how they can give back to their community. 
 
I warmly invite all ideas and feedback on how the OCC can better support our alumnae community and very much look forward to meeting as many alumnae as possible over the coming months
 
I look forward to meeting you at future events. 
 
Kind regards,

OCC Breakfast Networking Event (October):
Dr Sandra Hacker AO (1963) is an honorary consultant psychiatrist at the Alfred Hospital with a special interest in psychotherapy, primarily post-traumatic stress disorder. She currently chairs the Human Research Ethics Committee of the Victorian Department of Health and Human Services and is the Deputy Chair of the Lord Mayor’s Charitable Foundation. Sandra was appointed an Officer of the Order of Australia (AO) for services to the medical profession.

For me, an MLC education opened doors - not simply in exposure to different activities and experiences, but in the way the ethos of the College and its teachers encouraged me to set my sights high and understand the work it would take to get there.
