MSBESA would like to encourage Alumni to
become part of the Mentoring program that
has been launched on Bennies Connect.
What is mentoring? Alumni sharing their
experiences with the current students.
This includes university / courses
undertaken and the pathway to get there.
How do the girls communicate with
mentors? Through email Expression
of Interest via the Careers Department.
MSB Golden Jubilee 2016
We are currently updating our
archival records with the History
Company in preparation for our
Golden Jubilee in 2016. As a result
of this process we have discovered
some of our publications have
been misplaced. If you are an
ex-student and you have kept
Publications such as Bennies Buzz,
Newsletters, School Diaries and
photos of significant events and
that you would be happy to share
a copy with us and/or donate it to
our Department please contact
Michelle Blackman on 9980 0401
or email
au. We are also very keen to obtain
old uniforms and/or spare uniform
fabric for our collection.
Reunions in 2014
If you are holding a reunion this year,
please email
. We’d love to help you promote
it using the Newsletters and Bennies
Connect. Bennies Connect can be used
for taking registrations and payments
etc to make it easier on the organisers.
Class of 1976 – where are you?
If you were in the Class of ’76, Ann
Jackson (nee Williams) would like to
hear from you. Ann is keen to start
discussions on your 40 Year Reunion.
This one falls in a significant year, as
it is the College’s Golden Jubilee Year.
If you are interested in connecting
with your peers socially and/or
becoming involved in starting the
discussion, please email Ann
Class of 2004 – 10 year reunion
The Class of 2004 Reunion
organisers have started a
Facebook page for your reunion.
Join this group at
Beyond Bennies Breakfast
When: Tuesday 17 June 2014
Where: Mount St Benedict College
- Ground Floor of D Block
Time: 7.15am
The ex-student / daughter photo
will be taken after this breakfast
Kate Aubusson – Class of 2004
is a passionate refugee advocate,
who has used her journalist
background to capture interviews
with prominent people in locations
we would only dream of going.
Suzie Monks (nee Hackett) – Class
of 2000 studied BA in Tourism
Management and then changed
paths soon after graduation to
her true calling in Education, in
particular Reading Recovery for
children who struggle with literacy.
If you have a daughter in
primary school, please
remember to “register” her
to start at MSB sooner, rather
than later (this includes
current MSB families). This
prevents disappointment for
prospective families on the
wait list.
It doesn’t take much, it could be as
little as emailing through feedback on
how to gain entry into the courses the
current students are interested in.
Alumni are very important to our
community they give back their
wisdom to current students and
are ambassadors for the College.
