The nomination for Judy Singh (Wooll, 1955) was received in late 2022 for the 2023 Alumnae Awards and recognises her contribution over decades of tireless service to the School. Sadly, Judy passed away suddenly on 19 January 2023.

Since the nomination for Judy was received in the relevant timeframe, the School resolved to proceed with presenting this Award posthumously.

Judy was part of a four generation MLC School family; mother Gwendoline Wooll (Daniel, 1934), daughter Tanya Singh (1977), granddaughters Anna Crawford (2005) and Megan Crawford (2007), and her son-in-law’s sister, Fiona Crawford (1982), all attended MLC School.

Judy enrolled into Nursery (Pre-K) at MLC School at the age of 4 in 1943 and completed her entire schooling here. Later Judy became an active and dedicated Committee member of the MLC School’s Old Girls’ Union (OGU).

Judy was the President of the OGU on five occasions for a total of 12 years, holding other OGU Executive positions at numerous other times, and for over 10 years she was the OGU representative on the MLC School Council. She also represented the MLC School OGU on external committees such as the National Council of Women and the Girls’ Secondary Schools Club.

In the late 2010s, Judy was part of the driving force that led to the magnificent revitalisation of the MLC School Chapel. The newly refurbished Chapel serves as a place for the entire MLC School community. It is a place to share the joy of baptisms and weddings, and it provides our girls with a beautiful space for stillness and reflection.

Judy’s contribution to MLC School cannot be understated – she gave financially and donated her time. Her service and dedication to the School was remarkable and consistent over many decades. She was a valued and much-loved member of the MLC School community and wholeheartedly deserved this Alumnae Award.
