MELAKA: SMK St David here is holding its annual carnival, which was halted for five years due to various factors including the Covid-19 pandemic.
The school's Parents and Teachers' Association chairman Dr Daniel Wong said the event would be held from 9am to 4pm on Saturday (July 22).
He said the carnival this year would raise funds for the school's car park and canteen projects.
"We hope to get support from over 3,000 locals, including past students and corporate sponsors," he said on Thursday (June 1).
The school has a history dating back to 1912.
It was founded by Dr Ferguson David from the Anglican Diocese of Singapore, who also founded the St David's Hospital here.
The hospital's service was ended and was replaced with a school, Sekolah Tinggi Cina.
In 1956, Commander Hudson from the Christ Church Parish Committee gave a large piece of land in Bukit Baru to build the St David's school.
