The MLMC Old Collegians’ Association Scholarship is awarded annually to a Year 11 student for entry into Year 12. The recipient of this scholarship has demonstrated a commitment to the Catholic faith and has participated in community-based activities such as social justice, music, public speaking, sport or drama. This student displays a positive school spirit with the desire to work for the overall good of the College. The academic standard of the recipient is also such that he/she is able to take full advantage of the subjects provided by the College.

The 2022 scholarship was split among three equally-deserving students (pictured above from left) Jeremy Conte, Grace George and Perry Leane. We are proud to introduce them to the College community.

Perry Leane

Perry is an enthusiastic member of our College community participating in many cocurricular opportunities such as Seeds of Justice, College plays and the College Musical. He is frequently involved with the Ministry Lounge and is the Faith and Ministry Prefect for 2022.

Although Perry has many different interests, he is focused on Agriculture. He has participated in the Young Farmers program and has completed a two-year VET Agriculture course through the College. Through these opportunities Perry has found a passion for wine making and hopes to pursue this when he graduates.

Perry is community minded and is the first to put his hand up to offer help wherever he can.

Grace George

Grace is a highly academic student who always strives for self-improvement. Grace is committed to her Catholic faith frequently participating in College liturgies and reading out the morning prayer in Homeroom. She has a strong school spirit and is involved in many cocurricular activities such as the Yellow Ribbon program and Peer Support. She was a Class Captain in Year 11 and was captain of the softball team.

Grace takes pride in being a leader within our community encouraging her friends and peers to work hard and strive to be the best version of themselves. 

After graduation Grace hopes to study Medicine with the long-term goal of moving to an underdeveloped country to assist in providing medical training and education to provide improved health care.

Jeremy Conte

Jeremy is often seen and looked to as a leader by his peers. He is an outgoing and enthusiastic student with a passion for sport and fitness. As an active member of his community Jeremy plays football for Coldstream Junior Football Club, winning the best and fairest award in 2014, 2015 and 2016 and he plays basketball for SEBC Saints.

Jeremy is also an active member in the College community, having previously been a Class Captain and a Peer Support Leader as well as participating in the Taming of the Butterflies program.

A cause that Jeremy is passionate about is men’s mental health and he recently raised money for the Black Dog Institute, a not-for-profit organisation for the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of mood disorders such as depression, anxiety and bipolar disorder.

After graduation, Jeremy hopes to pursue further studies in Science.
