Saving Yesterday For Tomorrow

Anglo Chinese Girls School? Well, if you didn’t know what the ACGS building looked like here’s an old photo.

Looks like the Methodist Girls School building? That’s because it IS the MGS building πŸ™‚ ACGS was named MGS back in 1959.

      Sorry SK, Felicia is absolutely correct. This photo is of the ACGS as it is much earlier than 1959. It is an official photo with the original name printed on it.

    Dear sk …

    The original name was “Anglo-Chinese Girls’ School.” Then at some point the name “Methodist Girls’ School” was conferred instead. I don’t recall off-hand when the official re-naming happened, but I think it was in the 1950s.

    As for the boys’ school: In its early years several names were used interchangeably. Sometimes it was called “the American Mission School,” sometimes “Mr. Horley’s school,” sometimes “the Methodist Boys’ School,” but mostly it was called “the Anglo-Chinese School.”

    Here’s a related question for you: Do you remember when it was that the primary classes in Anderson School were given their own school-name (Cator Avenue Primary School)?
