From the
MSBESA President
Jessica Micallef
This year has been an exciting one for the College and
MSBESA alike. Ex-students joined the College for a number
of Jubilee events, including the Jubilee Afternoon Tea, Jubilee
Ball and the Jubilee Mass. Each event provided a unique
occasion for ex-students to indulge in the nostalgia of being
a Bennies girl. Most importantly, these events have been
an opportunity for ex-students to reconnect with former
classmates, teachers and principals and connect with current
Bennies students. On behalf of MSBESA and all ex-students,
I would like to thank the College staff and students for their
hard work in organising these wonderful events, a fitting
tribute to this milestone.
We were very fortunate to have three inspiring ex-students
form the panel of this year’s ‘Beyond Bennies’ event on 6
April. Melanie Drayton (Class of 1993), Catherine Holliday
(Class of 1994) and Julia Calixto (Class of 2005) shared their
wisdom and journeys since Bennies and delighted students
with stories of their time at Bennies.
During 2016, MSBESA has provided funding for two ex-
students undertaking overseas volunteering pursuits.
Hannah Ryan (Class of 2010) volunteered in Zambia with
International Citizens Services and Liz King (Class of 2010)
completed an internship with the United Nations Assistance
to the Khmer Rouge Trials in Cambodia. We look forward
to supporting more ex-students in the future by officially
launching this grant in 2017.
I have been very fortunate to take on the role of MSBESA
President at such an exciting time. I would like to thank
the MSBESA Committee Members for 2015-2016 for their
contribution during the past year.
