The Principal’s Circle

The Principal’s Circle is a central and distinguished symbol of Mannix College’s philanthropic endeavours. It is a group of passionate alumni, parents and friends of the College who share a common belief in furthering Mannix as an accessible, inclusive and excellent community for collegiate education.

The financial support provided by members of The Principal’s Circle ensures that Mannix continues to strive to deliver upon Archbishop Mannix’s motto of ‘Omnia Omnibus’ (‘All things to all people’) for generations of students to come.

Thank you – your support changes lives.


Members of The Principal’s Circle are generous benefactors demonstrating leadership and commitment to Mannix who donate $2,000 or more to the College in any 12-month period.
