Club History

Club History

Mauritian-Chinese Cultural Society of Victoria (MCSV) is a non-profit organisation founded and registered on the 4th April 2007. Prior to the official registration of the club, a group of friends whilst having a meal together in September 2006, shared the common vision of founding a social club where Mauritians who have migrated to Victoria, Australia would meet and promote the Mauritian-Chinese culture to foster a spirit of friendship and networking. 

The vision did not stop after the meal but instead was pursued further at the next gatherings in Jells Park on October 22nd, 2006 and November 19th, 2006. Our aim was to organise some activities where we can meet socially and at the same time promote the Mauritian-Chinese culture.  To align with our vision, our first organised party coincided with the celebration of the Chinese New Year in February 2007. 

Our 1st Chinese New Year Party was on February 10th, 2007 at Menzies Community Hall, Menzies Avenue, Dandenong to celebrate the Year of the Pig.

 

There was a mini floor show consisting of

  • Catwalk and Chinese dance performed by the children

  • Chinese song
     

The party was a huge success with a good turnout of 428 attendees.  Further to the positive feedback received and the support showed by those who attended the party; the founders defined and established the Club Constitution to officially register the MCSV Inc. on April 4th, 2007. 

An open day family BBQ was organised for the MCSV Inc. launch at Jells Park on April 25th, 2007 (Anzac Day). 380 people attended the BBQ and presented an opportunity to register as a Club Member. Activities such as tug of war, spoon race, face paintings and soccer were organised and enjoyed by all. 

The founding members of MCSV Inc. dedicated their time and effort to organise such successful activities and continue to support the club. 

 

They were:​​

  • Sheila & Andrew Ah-Sen

  • Jean Chung

  • Audrey & Jacques Lam

  • Sandrine & Dominic Liu

  • Marie-Anne & Jacky Loo

  • Stella & David Min Fa

  • Veronique & Lindsay Min Fa

Our hope is that MCSV Inc. grows and adherence to the MCSV Constitution be embraced by current and future elected Committee Members.
