Kolej Vokasional Batu Lanchang

Sekolah Menengah Vokasional Batu Lanchang, Penang (9 September, 2012)

Batu Lanchang Vocational Secondary School (GPS: 5.40007, 100.29816), or Kolej Vokasional Batu Lanchang is a vocational school in the Batu Lanchang area of Penang. Located along Batu Lanchang Lane, it was founded in 1931 as the Government Trade Centre.

The Second World War disrupted the running of the Government Trade School from 1942 to 1946, when it reopened as the Junior Trade School. In 1958, following Independence, the school was renamed Sekolah Menengah Pertukangan. Ten years later, it was renamed Sekolah Menengah Vokasional Batu Lanchang.

Between 1997 and 2009, the school was called Kolej Vokasional Batu Lanchang. It reverted to the name Sekolah Menengah Vokasional Batu Lanchang since then.
