The Joan Wilkinson Circle – launched in March 2022

We are delighted that the new Joan Wilkinson Circle which acknowledges and thanks all donors who gave $1,000 or more to MLC in 2021, has now been launched.

The launch video features key messages from Diana Vernon, our Principal, Ingrid Winata (2021) the inaugural recipient of the JOZIL Scholarship, Claire Rogers, Chair of the MLC Foundation and Sue Felton, Director of Advancement, on the importance of philanthropy at MLC and the impact of your giving. It also shines a light on the extraordinary life and legacy of the late Dr Joan Wilkinson AM (1945), in whose honour our new Circle has been established.

We would love to receive your feedback on the video (mailto: foundation@mlc.vic.edu.au) Thank you once again to all donors for your generous support of our students – it is greatly appreciated.
