Star of the Sea

Quality Education

Star of the Sea Kindergarten, located in Pangkor, provides informal education for children aged 4 to 6 years. Currently, around 40 to 50 children from the remote island attend the kindergarten. Operated by the Parish of St. Francis de Sales Church along with two other kindergartens, it has not seen any maintenance or renovation in the last 40 years.Over time, the lack of maintenance and safety measures has led to a deteriorated school environment. The outdated classrooms and limited facilities have hindered the teaching and learning experience. This project aims to enhance the quality of education through interior architecture by revitalizing the learning playscape and the entire school.
