“Yangon School gets newest blue plaque”

Myanmar real estate news Twenty-one blue plaques have been installed to educate people about Yangon’s rich architectural heritage by the Yangon Heritage Trust (YHT), together with the Yangon City Development Committee (YCDC) and Royal Philips Corporation.

The latest blue plaque was installed on Sunday at Yangon’s famous No.1 Basic Education High School in Dagon.

The plaques are installed to protect historical buildings, to remember the city’s history and to be proud of Yangon’s heritage, said Dr. Thant Myint-U, Chair of Yangon Heritage Trust.

“Having architectural heritage amid modern buildings will make Yangon a special City,” he said.

The main building of B.E.H.S. (1) Dagon is 123 years old and was established as a Methodist Missionary All-Girls School in 1882. The School was closed for six months during World War 11. When it reopened in 1947, most of the students attending were upper class and high-ranking officers’ children, according to YHT.

The installation of the plaques is one of the most effective and eye-catching methods to communicate Yangon’s history, said Saw Moe Moe Lwin, director of the Yangon Heritage Trust.
