Saving SMK Convent Bukit Nanas

The news that the iconic SMK Convent Bukit Nanas school's land lease had not been renewed by the Federal Territories Lands and Mines Department, was met with horror, dismay and disgust. Fondly known as CBN, the school has been around since 1899, and is one of the oldest schools in the country. It has served thousands of young minds, and has shaped a long list of distinguished alumni, who are serving Malaysia and the world in many different capacities. We find out more about CBN and the issues the school is facing from former students, Marina Yong, who is also the current President of the CBN Alumni Association, and Tengku Azian Shahriman, a former President of the alumni association.
