Dr.Wood Scholarship

Rev. Dr Harold Wood, Principal of MLC from 1939-1966, was an inspirational leader of the College, and greatly loved. His firm but fair manner, his commitment to excellence in girls’ education and a conviction that MLC girls could achieve anything, his immense energy and clear Christian teaching and example are some of the many qualities that have stayed with Old Collegians over the decades. A scholarship in his honour was initiated by the Old Collegians’ Club in 1990 as an acknowledgement of his lasting contribution to the College. The Scholarship has since been supported by many philanthropic donations from MLC alumnae and others.
