The Year 2 pupils had an amazing trip to the Fagnoon Farm. With painting wall hangings, planting and farming, decorating photo frames, animal rides and seeing baby goats made a very busy and exciting time was had by all.
The Primary School pupils were full of energy at the Maadi Olympic Stadium. Parents, pupils and teachers witnessed some amazing individual and team performances in this spectacular Inter-House event. Well done to everyone who participated on this action packed day.
This week MCE held its Sixth Form Options Evening whereby our students applying to enter the Sixth Form were able to meet with the teachers of the subjects on offer. It was a wonderful afternoon and a value to all who attended. Please note the deadline for internal applications is Sunday 17th March. If you need to seek further advice on making those important decisions, please see the Head of Sixth Form, Mrs Burnett.
It was a pleasure to witness our very own Year 11 pupil, Nisan, receive two separate Outstanding Pearson Learner Awards for her recent (I)GCSE examination results. Congratulations on the ‘Best in Africa’ awards for both Art and Science. We are always proud of our pupils!

Year 2 have been learning all about Fashion this half term and were particularly enthusiastic about upcycling and recycling. As part of a competition children were asked to design and create an outfit using black bin bags. We were inundated with fantastic outfits and struggled to pick our finalists. However, we picked four from each class who chose their models and showed their creations in an amazing Fashion Show!
The children in Nursery were given the opportunity to visit KidZania – an interactive city that combines inspiration, fun and learning through realistic role-play. Upon entry, the children were given their own cheques to cash into “Kidzos” at the Commercial International Bank (CIB) and learned the importance of working hard to earn their “Kidzos” and spend them. The children were able to move about, put themselves in someone else’s shoes, wear costumes and use props, and communicate and make decisions in character.
There was a really positive response to our Sanger and Elgar Bake Sale event! We saw a large percentage of home-made items being brought to the sale and this is fantastic. It shows that our students and parents are more aware of the important qualities that we are developing at Malvern College Egypt and they are supporting our holistic focus. Thank you to everyone who supported the event, we raised almost 7500 EGP for the House charities. Special thanks to Mrs Lamees Daya and Mrs Susana Romani, two of our parents who helped the House Captains to bake some of […]
In Primary Assembly on Tuesday, Miss Belcher gave a presentation to Primary pupils to review all the different House and charity activities that have been carried out by Malvern College Egypt this year. The presentation also included contributions from our student House Captains and the Heads of House. It was a great opportunity for pupils to reflect on the value and importance of the community projects that we implement.
Recently, pupils in class 6A and 6L visited the Elgar Charity, Branches of the Vine. This followed a successful first trip by 6M. Branches of the Vine is a centre for children with severe special needs. Our pupils greatly enjoyed the experience of undertaking some activities with these children. Mr. Tucker and Mr. Watt were very proud of the sensitive way our pupils interacted. Well done Year 6!
On Monday 1st April, the Nursery children were visited by a group of dentists from “Helio Dental” to talk about dental health. During the visit, they talked to the children about keeping their teeth healthy and clean and gave them tips on how to brush their teeth. The children thought about good foods to eat and those that might have too much sugar, which are bad for their teeth. A few of the children volunteered to dress up as large teeth, and the rest of the children were given the opportunity to brush off the “sugar bugs” with a giant […]
On Thursday 28th March, Primary School pupils and staff had the opportunity to dress up as their favourite book character to celebrate the final day of Book Week. We saw many amazing costumes across all year groups, including the BFG, Alice in Wonderland, Winnie the Pooh and many, many more. On this day, children were able to visit one of the Primary class teachers to hear a story of their choice and the costumes really added to the brilliant atmosphere around the school. There was one winner from each class and during our Thursday assembly, one winner from each year […]
Book Week took place across the Primary School between Sunday 24th March and Thursday 28th March. During this time, we celebrated books and reading with a range of fun activities. We were lucky enough to be visited by a UK author, Alan Durant, who has published over 100 books and all pupils in years 2 – 6 enjoyed an assembly with him in which they got to listen to some of his poetry and even join in with some themselves. Alan Durant also lead writing workshops for a selection of children in the Primary School along with signing books and discussing […]
Year 1 had a fantastic time at Fagnoon Farm, learning about ‘living things’ as part of our science curriculum. The children enjoyed a wonderful outdoor learning opportunity, combining science, art and the natural environment.
