John Hennessy Financial Hardship Bursary
John Hennessy attended Marcellin College from 1941 to 1948. He was awarded first place in the State for Mathematics in the Leaving Certificate. John taught at Marcellin from 1985 until his death in 2002. He was a long serving secretary to the Ex-Students' Association.
Ninety years on from its foundation, MCR serves a much broader clientele than its early days. It is important then for us to continue to ensure that we remain a viable option for the neediest Catholic boys in our area. The Bursary, with the assistance of the Old Boys, the P&F and community donations, is aimed at providing quality education to a Catholic boy who would otherwise miss out.
Donations to the John Hennessy Financial Hardship Bursary are gratefully accepted.
