Welcome to Malone College and thank you for taking the time to find out a bit about our school. Malone College prides itself on the relationships between staff, students, parents and the wider community. We want to create a safe place where each person is valued and respected. We are committed to giving our students the best possible chance in life to make each one a valued member of our communities and achieve their maximum potential each and every day. At Malone, we provide our students with many varied opportunities to learn, to grow and to achieve.
I am honoured to be the Principal of such a dynamic and vibrant school and to work with such a very dedicated and professional group of staff. I have had the privilege of working here since the school first opened in 1997 and in that time I have seen many changes in our city and our society. The cornerstone of what we do in Malone each day is to develop the students to be the best they can be in preparation for a successful future, in our ever changing world. Our students are a credit to themselves, their families and to the College.
2019 is an exciting year for Malone College, with the new sports hall almost finished and pupil numbers on the rise.
The next big project will be a major and much-needed upgrade of our ICT equipment. This will support learning across all areas of the school, to give pupils and staff the state-of-the-art resources they deserve.
Needless to say, a project of this scale will cost a lot of money (£75,000 to be precise!) and like most schools, Malone College can’t meet this type of expense from its normal funding. That’s why we’re asking our past pupils, parents, friends and supporters for some help.
Nuala O’Connor, our former Chair of Governors is kick-starting the fundraising campaign by running the London Marathon on 28th April. She hopes to raise at least £900 for Malone College, but with your help, we’d really like to smash that target! You can donate to the school through Nuala’s fundraising page. All donations are greatly appreciated and will help us to buy the iPad’s, laptops, computers and software that we so urgently need.
If you or your business would like to sponsor part of this project or make a donation directly to the school, please get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Malone College - School of Sanctuary
Malone College is delighted to have been awarded ‘School of Sanctuary’ status. On Friday 21st September Miss Moore, Mrs Kesoglu and Mr Goddard took six of our Bilingual students to Belfast City Hall to receive our award in recognition of Malone College achieving school of Sanctuary status. Amal, Catalina, Angeles, Joseph, Omar and Paul represented the College with pride as the college received the accolade. School of Sanctuary status is achieved when a school:
• Is a space for those whose lives may be in danger in their own country, who have troubles at home or are just looking for a space where they can feel safe. It is committed to being a safe and welcoming place for anyone seeking sanctuary;
• Helps pupils, students, staff and the wider community to understand what it means to be seeking sanctuary and extends a welcome to everyone as equal, valued members of the school and community. It is a school that is proud to be a place of safety and inclusion for all;
• Considers intercultural awareness through learning experiences and skills being developed across the curriculum; and
• Develops intercultural awareness through the gradual acquisition of intercultural skills. These skills improve communication and promote understanding across cultures.
