Philip Malone MSC has had a professional life working in the field of education and this, in two distinct phases, High School (teaching and administration) over eighteen years, followed by thirty five years in Adult education (again, teaching and administration).
As an MSC Priest he has worked in four of the five Colleges administered by the MSC Congregation in mainland Australia, teaching RE, Indonesian, Asian Social Studies, English and History.

This period of teaching has been supplemented by presenting a wide range of papers, leading seminars and similar educative opportunities with a variety of professional and non-professional groups.
