1st November 1947 was a key milestone in our nation’s history. A small step made that led to distinctive outcomes.
With much love and gratitude, we celebrate our alma mater’s 75th Anniversary today.
The idea of establishing an English-medium boarding school for female students was first proposed in 1939 by Yang Berbahagia Dato’ Sheikh Ahmad Al-Haj bin Sheikh Mustapha and sanctioned by the Sultans of the Associated states (Perak, Selangor, Negeri Sembilan and Pahang). It was to be named Maktab Perempuan Melayu. The main objective was that Malay girls will be developed holistically to unleash their potential through a comprehensive boarding school experience. However, World War II broke out and halted the plans. It was only until after the war ended in September 1945 that the idea was revisited and came to fruition two years later in 1947. The school name was then changed to Malay Girls’ College (MGC).
On 5th November 2022, we shall continue to celebrate our lifetime sisterhood bond at the MGC/TKC 75th Anniversary Royal Gala Dinner being held at the Mandarin Oriental Kuala Lumpur.
