Learn More About The Gan Eng Seng School
Gan Eng Seng School opened in 1986 on a new site next to the Keppel Railway Station, inaugurated on July 12, 1989. The National Heritage Board classified the school’s original site at Telok Ayer Street as a national historical landmark in 1997. Mr Gan Eng Seng established a school in three shophouses on Telok Ayer Street in 1885 to provide free education to the children of impoverished parents in the area. It was known as the Anglo-Chinese Free School, and it was unrelated to Bishop W.F. Oldham’s second Anglo-Chinese School, which opened a year later.
