SK Sultan Yussuf

I attended SK Sultan Yussuf (primary school) from 1972 until 1977. The above picture shows the main entrance of the school at Jalan Pusing. This school was shifted from Jalan Ilmu during the 90s. This school is located next to the Convent schools.
Most of the students who completed at this primary school will continue their studies at SMK Sultan Yussuf.

This is the original school building at Jalan Ilmu. It has been renovated and converted into Pusat Kegiatan Guru Batu Gajah. I am not sure whether this building is still in use or not.
During my school days, this building housed the class rooms, library, staff room and a store room to keep the sports equipment. I still remembered my classes at this building were Darjah 1A4, Darjah 2A3 and Darjah 3 Putih.

This tennis court is located at the left side of the building. Originally, this was the location of the administration and headmaster’s offices building. Located beside the office was the dental clinic - probably the only dental clinic in Malaysia located at school premise. Behind the clinic was the school canteen. Students of the afternoon session will assemble at the canteen before enter their class rooms.

This block located is at the right side of the main building - just across the school field. This block housed my class rooms of Darjah 4 Putih, Darjah 5 Putih and Darjah 6 Putih. This block also can be converted into a school hall. I took the Ujian Penilaian Darjah 5 (Standard 5 Assessment Examination - now known as Ujian Penilaian Sekolah Rendah for Standard 6) at this block in 1976.

Another part of the main building - this picture was taken from my home. There was a staircase leading to the first floor of the building on the right side.
I was at Standard 4 when we moved here at Taman Kam Seng in 1975. I have to use a wooden plank to cross the monsoon drain to this school.
Now the compound is not maintained. The ground floor of the building was almost completely hidden by bushes.
