Maxwell School (now SMK Maxwell) had a notorious reputation for being a “gangster school” in the 1960s, and it took an outstanding individual to turn it all around.
As one of the oldest schools in Kuala Lumpur prepares to celebrate its 100th anniversary, former Maxwellians want to commemorate the man who brought the school from the lowest of lows to the highest of highs – the late P. Nadarajah.
Centenary Celebration of Maxwell School will be held on the 30th of September 2017 at the school. For tickets, please see the following :-
