All students who reside at Mannix for at least one semester automatically become life members of the Mannix Old Collegians Association (MOCA) upon leaving the College. As such, MOCA is a huge network of ‘Old Colls’ who interact in the knowledge that they share in common the unique experience of passing through Mannix.
As an Association MOCA’s primary purpose is to promote networking and fellowship between Old Collegians, primarily through social events and reunions, and to strengthen the connection between Old Collegians and the College. Ultimately it acts to keep alumni in touch with each other and with happening of the College. MOCA also serves to provide support to the College by encouraging its development and perpetuation, and to represent the interest of Old Collegians in any college related matters. If you are a past student or staff member of Mannix we strongly encourage you to become involved with MOCA. Please contact the Committee at MOCA.Committee@gmail.com to register your details to receive regular email newsletters as well as invitations to MOCA events and reunions. You will also gain access to the MOCA online portal through which you can catch up with old friends, network and participate in the MOCA footy tipping competition (with great prizes)!
We look forward to seeing you at a MOCA event soon!
