ONE of the few Anglican schools in Kuala Lumpur, SMK(P) Pudu (or formerly known as Pudu English Secondary School (PESS)), marked the last day of school for the year with a groundbreaking ceremony for a new four-storey academic building.

Located in Jalan Foss, Kuala Lumpur, the ceremony was attended by many guests who came to give their support to the school.

Anglican Bishop of West Malaysia and Archbishop of the Church of Southeast Asia Datuk Ng Moon Hing officiated at the groundbreaking ceremony.

Pudu English Secondary School was founded in 1914 by Elinor Gage-Brown and Josephine Foss.

Chairman of the Board of Governors, Janet Kandilis said: “Today’s children have very different career aspirations, like becoming a YouTuber or a social media influencer.”

During the groundbreaking ceremony, guests were escorted to the building site.

With golden painted hoes, representatives from the Parent-Teacher Association, Pudu English Secondary School Old Girls Association (Pesoga), board members and other guests turned the ground over in a symbolic gesture to show the process of moving education into the 21st century.

The school is collecting donations for its new building.
