The Methodist Girls’ School (MGS) was a popular landmark in Mount Sophia. The exclusive school was a leading institution that provided top education services for girls within the area. Famous personalities such as Madam Kwa Geok Choo, the late wife of former Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew, graduated from here.

After the school moved, Singapore Hotel Association Training and Educational Center and St. Francis Methodist School were erected in its place for certain periods of time. Selegie road was located at Mount Sophia’s corner street. Cathay building and cinema, the first skyscraper in Singapore, used to be situated on this road.
