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’s leadership is in discussion with the MoE to advocate for heat management protocols that are relevant to the local context of each school. The College will continue to monitor the situation, offer guidance and inform parents and staff accordingly.

10th ANNIVERSARY EVENT 

Wellbeing in Schools Conference

On Tuesday and Wednesday next week we will be welcoming over 100 delegates from schools all over the world to share insights into Wellbeing. 

In 2021 Marlborough College Malaysia was awarded Beacon Status, the highest award, by the Council of British International Schools for our strategic approach towards Wellbeing. We were delighted to be recognised as one of the leading schools in the world in this crucial aspect of education. We also felt a responsibility to share insights into what we were doing and the research-led approach we had taken, to improve the Wellbeing of all within our community: pupils, staff and parents. Whilst Flourishing@MCM is obviously unique to our College, many of the initiatives that we have undertaken can help other schools improve their provision. 

We have also invited other leading schools worldwide to share Wellbeing projects with all the delegates. It promises to be a fascinating and enlightening event for all who are gather here on 23rd and 24th May.
