Heat Management – outdoor activities   

 The Ministry of Education continues to require that no outdoor activities take place at any school in Malaysia.  The Sports Department has done a wonderful job at moving activities indoors to allow our pupils to remain active.

The College will continue to monitor the situation, offer guidance and inform parents and staff accordingly.

Wellbeing Gratitude Cards

In honour of Gratitude Week, pupils in Year 4 to Year 8 have been designing gratitude cards in Form time. Our Wellbeing representatives will select the best from each year group to be printed and sold to raise money for our charities. Staff, parents and pupils will be able to purchase these to give to someone they want to thank at the end of the year. The deadline for submissions is Wednesday 17th May. If your child wishes to enter the competition, they should send their design to their Form Wellbeing representative by Wednesday.

The importance of the House system at MCM | College Spotlight

The House system is at the core of our philosophy at MCM, as every child is placed into a Prep or Senior House throughout the duration of their education. A Marlborough College Malaysia education is many things; it is holistic, collaborative and the very definition of exemplary teaching. However, we do not only focus on teaching academic subjects, but also recognise the overwhelming importance of wellbeing, belonging and community.
