Pastoral Care

An Effective Pastoral System

Inheriting the ethos from Malvern College with its 150-year history, Malvern College Hong Kong will develop an effective and strong pastoral system. The school will be a tight-knit community with structures in place ensuring the best character education and support are provided to our students.

The school environment and structures will ensure that students are nurtured by developing healthy relationships with all members of the school community. In addition to our House System, our pastoral structure will also include a mentorship programme, weekly assemblies, daily form time, personal tutors, character education classes, and career and guidance counsellors. These activities, alongside the co-curricular programme, enable our students and staff to interact beyond the classroom and campus limit, strengthening the community and harnessing the support among them. To create a sense of community and competitive spirit across houses, we will follow the tradition from Malvern College UK of house dining in order to educate in dining and social etiquette. We will run an extended day and weekend field trips.

We believe in focusing on strengths, while explicitly developing specific skills that assist students in strengthening their relationships, building positive emotions, enhancing personal resilience, promoting mindfulness, and encouraging a healthy lifestyle.
