Teachers at Malvern Colleges – a family of education institutions with a long history spanning centuries and continents – have always sought to engage strongly wit their pupils (or ‘Malvernians’, as they known), from the moment those pupils step tentatively onto school grounds.

In August 2019, Malvern College Pre-School Hong Kong (MCPS) welcomed its first cohort of little learners into its Island West campus. Those super-cute preschoolers may have been full of nerves, but the team was cool, calm and collected.

The idea of conducting classes in the great outdoors rather than the classroom might sound counterintuitive. In fact, it’s a wonderful learning environment for kids. Anyone who is truly connected to Hong Kong knows that our city is one of contrasts. The fragrant harbour’s high density living quite rapidly surrenders to breathtaking natural experiences. For pupils receiving a world-leading education at Malvern College Pre-School or Malvern College Hong Kong, this contrast is presented in bi-weekly excursions, as part of its pioneering Forest-Beach School programmes.

STEM has been having a bit of a “moment” in education these past few years. Thanks to the STEM revival, schools are now hotbeds of innovation. There are Maker Labs for teens, robotics classes for primary schoolers, and everything in between.Today, we’re seeing preschools offer STEM programmes to the littlest of students. Science for three-year-olds may seem like overkill at first, but it quickly gathers context when we stop to think. Science is all about understanding our world, and about being an inquisitive and imaginative explorer. And really, isn’t that what preschool is all about?
