“Parents have the opportunity to be actively engaged in the life of the school.” – COBIS Report 2021

The Friends of Marlborough College Malaysia (FoMCM), or “Friends” for short, is a group of parent volunteers and Beaks of the College. The committee, made up of a number of parents from diverse backgrounds, is responsible for coordinating the organisation and hosting of various social and informative events throughout the academic year.

Our aim is to help integrate new parents, promote friendships and bring about an expansive community spirit here at Marlborough College Malaysia (MCM).

Events are supported through sponsorship or on a paid for basis to ensure that College fees are not subsidising Friends’ events and activities. Any profits from these events are channelled back into the College, in two significant ways. 

The first, through donations to provide non-essential facilities and equipment that will enhance the children’s educational experience at the College. To date, FoMCM have purchased bikes and play furniture and funded the build of Barton Farm. In the wider community, funds have gone to help the UN Rohingya School, local breast cancer charities and relief efforts in Sulawesi.

The second, to help support the bursary set up by the College that gives the opportunity of students from less privileged backgrounds to study at MCM.

FoMCM have achieved a great deal within the school community over the last eight years since it was formed through events such as fairs and balls. Alongside larger events FoMCM serve drinks at sports fixtures, hold themed coffee mornings, and run the second-hand uniform sales.
