YANGON Heritage Trust is planning to install a blue plaque at a colonial –era school building in Yangon in June, recognizing it as a heritage of the city.
Basic Education High School No. 6 in Botahtaung Township, which is more than 100 years old, will become the 11th heritage building with the blue plague of YHT.
“Previously, it  was St  Paul’s school.  We aim to make the public know the value of Yangon history. We also need to provide technical support if we  want to preserve the  city’s urban heritage,” said U Kyan Taing Aung from YHT.
The commemorative Blue Plaque is part of the YHT’s efforts to promote and integrate Yangon’s unique heritage into a 21st Century vision of the metropolis as one of Asia’s most liveable cities.
There  are more than 100 heritage  buildings in Yangon.—200
