How it all began: The SMK Puchong Story
In 2014, YTL foundation Project Director Datin Kathleen Chew was invited to give an inspirational talk to the students at SMK Puchong. When she arrived at the designated classroom, she was shocked to find the classroom in the state of disrepair. Moved by the state of the classroom, she embarked on a mission to transform the learning facilities and provide the students of SMK Puchong with a better place to learn.
That very first classroom makeover breathed fresh life into the school, and reinvigorated the teachers and students. Since then, learning outcomes have improved significantly, inspiring a brave and bold idea: to transform classrooms all across the country similarly, giving tens of thousands of students the chance to experience the same transformation as the students of SMK Puchong.
