Malvern Save the Pool

During the 2009/2010 school year, the viability of swimming pools across the Toronto District School Board came in to question. Many school communities scrambled to work with the Board and the City of Toronto, in order to "Save the Pools". At Malvern CI, a fundraising campaign was established through an arm's length charitable organization, Onward Malvern Foundation (OMF), to raise enough funds to keep the pool opened.

In September 2009, $25.00 of the $75.00 school registration fee collected from students was allocated to the "Save the Pools" fundraising campaign. The total amount collected was $23,475.00. Of this amount, $7,000.00 was used to purchase pool accessories such as lane ropes and buoys. The balance of $16,475.00 was then transferred to a GIC on July 8, 2010. As of February 28, 2018, the balance of the GIC is $17,614.99.

The outcome of the "Save the Pools" campaign was successful and there are no future concerns that the school pools will be in jeopardy of closing. Since July, 2010, the GIC has been rolling over year after year, and at the same time, the Ministry's Fundraising Guidelines have changed and restrictions put in place as to how the funds can be used. Fundraising dollars may no longer be applied towards facility renewal, maintenance or upgrades that are funded through provincial grants. Therefore, a decision has been made to redeem the GIC in consultation with the Malvern CI School Council and to utilize the funds according to Malvern CI's School Improvement Plan.

Specifically, the funds will be used to equip a newly retrofitted workout room for students and this will address the wellness foci of the School Improvement Plan. As well, resources will be purchased and guest speakers recruited to initiate culturally responsive and relevant pedagogy, thereby addressing the achievement foci. Finally, all students will participate in learning, designed to create a culture of equity across the school community and at the same time examine barriers to student success. This work will align with the school's equity foci.

If you have any questions or concerns in regards to the above, please contact, Principal Bernadette Shaw at Bernadette.shaw@tdsb.on.ca or 416-393-1480.

Support the Children's Breakfast Club Annual Coat Drive!

Winter Coat Drive 2017

The Children's Breakfast Clubs is once again extremely determined to assist children and their families who do not have suitable warm clothing for frigid Ontario winters. This is their fourth year facilitating the community-driven event alongside supporters, including Malvern Collegiate Institute. There is a cumulative goal to collect 50,000 clean, good quality, gently used coats and items of winter clothing. They are accepting donations in child and adult sizes!

Malvern CI is supporting this very worthy cause by setting up a donation box in front of the attendance office to collect any items students and their families are able to bring in.  Please think about checking your closet for any of the following items:

Clean, good quality and gently used:

  • coats
  • sweaters
  • hats
