A school for the children of Tamil parishioners was built nearby.
During WWII two bombs fell within the compound of the Church of Our Lady of Lourdes, but the church itself was undamaged. The Japanese occupied the church when they occupied Singapore.
The Church of Our Lady of Lourdes is a Gothic style church with pointed arches, spires and flying buttresses. All of these components along with 16 steel pillars were imported from Paris. The panoramic taken from inside the Church shows a gently decorated interior with stained glass windows reflecting parts of the Rosary.
