Alumni @ MGC
We are a stronger and more diverse community with the ongoing connections and contributions of former students and staff.
MGC Alumni offer a wealth of educational opportunities for our students. The experiences, pathways and passions of our former students provide stories and perspectives that influence and inspire our current students.
Remaining connected to MGC through our Alumni creates genuine and special networking opportunities for both former and current students.
We invite all former students to join our Alumni and encourage everyone to stay connected by sharing stories, joining our social media groups, contributing to our publications, and attending our events.
We believe it is important to celebrate the stories, achievements and milestones of our wider community, and are beginning to gather mini-bios (a photo and 100 words). Please send your mini-bio to us via the form below.
My time at MGC was incredibly valuable in making sure I understood all the doors that were open to me, and that I believed I could pursue and thrive doing whatever I wanted, including pursuing a career in the humanities and NFP work. I am still incredibly close to many of my MGC friends, who have been an incredibly powerful and empowering community of women to lean on.
Ella works at Future Women, where she manages Jobs Academy, an initiative to boost workforce participation and economic security among vulnerable Australian women.

Since graduating from UniMelb with a Bachelor of Arts(Honours), she has also produced There’s No Place Like Home podcast, a 10-episode podcast series highlighting the impacts of domestic violence in the words of victim-survivors which won Best Podcast of the Year and Best Podcast Episode of the Year in 2022. During her Honours year, she authored a thesis exploring Incel violence and the behaviour of alt-right men.
My high school life at MGC is deeply cherished. I went to a small primary school in the locality of our residence and was eager to be exposed to the big world of Melbourne and meet people from diverse backgrounds. This was pivotal in my decision to join MGC in Year 7, and by Year 9, I was a confident young teen navigating through the rollercoaster of life, thanks to the many extra-curricular activities I was involved in MGC. I developed leadership skills & values through Australian Air Force Cadets, Sports Teams, STEAM club, Environment Club, and student representations on the junior and senior school executives. My teachers also had a profound effect on encouraging academic excellence & strengthening my intra-personal values, especially through the VCE phase. After school, I studied Engineering, and currently I am an Engineering Consultant in the Energy Management & Renewables Industry. The learning opportunities from my time at MGC are foundational to my character & knowledge, and I trust MGC will continue to provide equitable education!
