As a young teacher of Geography and Social Studies in the late 1960's, Malcolm was my valued Superintendent. I remember his visits to the Eastern Goldfields in Kalgoorlie and in following years in Perth. Malcolm was inspiring in his love of learning,wealth of knowledge and in his encouraging support. He made you feel he knew your strengths whilst providing a pathway to growth. A true gentleman, he was the epitome of the best in education. Deepest sympathy to his family.

We have been privileged by the life of this warm-hearted, clever and funny man. I'll always remember his generosity to myself and my family.

In fond memory of a wonderful headmaster, teacher, hockey coach and friend. I was privileged to have known you, and to have you as a life-long mentor. Condolences to Judy, his children and family.
R.I.P. My mentor.

My sincere condolences to Judy and the Bennett family on their sad loss of Malcolm. He taught my first high school class of 52 at Collie DHS in his first appointment in 1948. We adored him and were devastated when he was transferred to Bunbury in 1949. In 1975 I was thrilled and honoured to be appointed to the panel of secondary superintendents of education and become Malcolm’s colleague. He impressed everyone with his integrity, enthusiasm, energy and dedication. Above all, he was approachable, charming and knowledgeable. In short, he was a great role model, friend and had a keen sense of humour. He loved his family and life in general. He will be much missed, but leaves many fond memories. Vale, Malcolm.
