Launch of Malvern Central School’s Positive Education Webpage
At our last whole school assembly on the 26th November, a very important development at our school was profiled. Students in years 3 & 4 along with teachers Sapna Sachdeva and Amy Prior, shared with the audience, the latest addition to our dynamic school website.
Teacher Led Research Results
The above work undertaken by Sapna and Amy was enabled through a state government funded program that provided time and resources to pursue this work throughout 2014.
Students Visit MECWA
On Thursday last week, a number of our level 1 & 2 students visited the aged care facility, MECWA to bring Christmas cheer to the residents there. MCS has developed a strong relationship with MECWA over a number of years.
Year 6 Graduation – class of 2014
A night to remember by all who attended, was the Year 6 Graduation held last night, Wednesday 10th December at the Malvern Town Hall; always a very grand venue to use for such an important occasion.
Awards Ceremony and News of Awards for Past Students
Yesterday MCS held the annual awards ceremony at the Malvern Town Hall. The Hall is a beautiful setting and most fitting for recognition awards for our students in years 5 – 8.

Year 7 & 8 at Malvern Central School
Malvern Central School has had a proud history of providing quality education for student in Foundation to Year 8. 2014 marks the end of an era for the school, with Year 7 & 8 no longer in place for 2015. It is important to recognize and celebrate some of the significant dates and events of this program.
Peter Madden and Julian Bradford - 2015
Leaving MCS to take up new positions in other schools. I congratulate both Peter and Julian who have been identified by Kew East PS and Wyndam Park PS as possessing considerable teaching and leading expertise. Both have been appointed as Leading Teachers in their new schools, such is their professional capacity.
Election Day BBQ
What a treat it was to see our school buzzing with the local community coming to our school on the State Election Day. We had many thousands of people come to MCS to vote in the election which provided a perfect opportunity for the PC volunteers to hold a BBQ and jam stall.
The Giving Tree
Thank you to the many families who have so generously brought along gifts to add to the collection of toys and non-perishable foods for those in need in our community.
Volunteers Afternoon Tea – Wednesday 17th December @ 2pm (just before the whole school assembly)
All families would have received an invitation extended to those who have generously volunteered their time, effort and interest in the school over 2014. I would love to see as many of our parent volunteers at the afternoon tea on Wednesday 17th December at 2pm in the Performing Arts room (entry near the gym).
Junior School Council Tree Surfing
Last week our JSC students enjoyed a fabulous day down at Dromana Tree Surfing.
Jump Rope For Heart
On Monday of last week the students finally put their skipping talents and practice on show. Postponed from the previous Monday due to rainy weather, it was really worth the wait. It was quite spectacular to see students from Foundation right through to our senior students join in and for a very good cause – heart health.
