Curiosity is a large part of the human psyche. Human  beings  seldom stop thinking, asking  questions  or wanting to learn. It’s never too late to find out more! MALA can challenge you to keep the grey cells ticking over!

MALA is a Western Australian organisation intended to provide opportunities for people to expand and enrich their knowledge in a friendly, social environment. It is for those who recognise that learning is a lifelong process, desire to keep their minds active and would like to find some practical ways to do so.

MALA provides learning experiences in a relaxed environment. Every year since 1980 in the Perth area (more recently in Mandurah - the Peel District - and in Rockingham) we have sponsored stimulating educational studies for mature people. During that time thousands have enjoyed our programs. Short courses are held once a week over two ten week semesters each year. Lectures are based on an exceptionally wide range of topics delivered by experts in their various fields.

Congratulations to Hazel Butorac for being inducted into the Western Australian Women’s Hall of Fame.

Hazel has worked in a voluntary capacity for many organisations and agencies over much of her life. She much deserves this recognition and we are fortunate that some of this energy has been devoted to MALA over many years. She has been President of MALA Perth and was a driving force in the establishment of MALA Peel.
