Did you attend Convent Bukit Nanas? Another mission school is under serious threat. Developers and politicians value the land…but we value heritage, history & education.

Please refer to the original link in Malaysiakini for further details.

CBN was established in 1899 but today, is seeking a stay AGAINST the decision to NOT renew the lease (which expires on 6 September 2021).

CBN wrote to the Lands and Mines office on 4 October, 2017, seeking an extension of the land lease.

With typical Malaysian gomen speed and efficiency, they replied on 18 December 2020. The lease would not be renewed.

In 2017, the FT minister was Adnan Mansor. The corrupt Umno-Baru MP known as “Kickback Ku Nan” was found guilty of corruption and graft charges last year.

Was CBN’s lease not renewed because “Kickback Ku Nan” and/or other corrupt Umno-Baru MPs had other plans for CBN’s land?

Today, politicians and developers are eager to own the goldmine on which CBN sits.

Will CBN suffer the same fate as countless mission schools, throughout Malaysia? Many became parking lots, shopping malls or high rises.

Greedy developers work in league with stupid politicians and clueless civil servants. They have no sense of history, heritage and pride in one of the finest schools in Malaysia.

We see a school which shaped our characters and educated us in the full sense of the word. They just see ringgits and sen.

FYI, Convent Bukit Nanas (CBN) was the second school I attended in my childhood, before we relocated north.
