Malvern Junior Public School's Mission Statement
STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math)
Teachers at Malvern Junior are developing a keen focus on improving their students’ achievement in STEM and are receiving on-going professional development and work closely with grade team members to ensure student success. We aim for all students to improve their ability to demonstrate their mathematical thinking in multi-step problem solving. Inquiry based learning becomes a key component in exploring and understanding Science and Social Studies strands and identifying and connecting Big Ideas to their world.

Student Life - Where You Belong
The students and staff are leading the way toward a much more environmentally friendly school community. Two student representatives from each class have joined to our EcoSchools committee. Once a week the students are meeting with EcoSchools lead teachers to discuss environmental issues. The students take their learning into their classroom and promote green and healthy living. They take on initiatives to reduce garbage at the school, bring litterless lunches every day, only pack their lunches in recyclable lunch containers, turn the lights off when the classroom is not use and use both sides of their papers. Through these various initiatives we create a better future for our young generation.
