Question marks over iconic convent schools in Penang


GEORGE TOWN: Three iconic convent schools here are facing an uncertain future, although the landowners insist that the buildings will be maintained for education.

Talk about the possible closure of SK Convent Light Street, SMK Convent Light Street and SMK Convent Pulau Tikus was sparked after a letter from the Northeast District Education District went viral. The letter said the schools would not take in new students from 2018. The letter has since been withdrawn, according to Penang Education director Shaari Osman who said that any such a directive had to come from him.
