Tunku Abdul Rahman Putra Al-Haj ibni Almarhum Sultan Abdul Hamid Halim Shah, AC, CH (February 8, 1903 – December 6, 1990) was Chief Minister of the Federation of Malaya from 1955, and the country's first Prime Minister from independence in 1957. He is widely known simply as "Tunku" or "The Tunku" (a princely title in Malaysia) and also called Bapa Kemerdekaan (Father of Independence) or Bapa Malaysia (Father of Malaysia).

It all began in 1961, when Tunku Abdul Rahman Putra Al-Haj mooted the idea of ‘Malaysia’, where this new country would consist of Brunei, Malaya, Sabah, Sarawak and Singapore. These countries were at the time British colonies. Tunku Abdul Rahman spearheaded the effort, leading a delegation of ministers and political leaders of Malaya in negotiations with the British in London (November 1961) for the formation of Malaysia. In 1962, the Cobbold Commission was set up by the British, tasked with surveying the sentiments of the citizens of Sabah and Sarawak towards the formation of Malaysia. It found that two-thirds were in general support of Sabah and Sarawak joining Malaysia.

The formation of Malaysia was finally approved by the British. On September 16, 1963, Malaya, Singapore, Sabah and Sarawak became a nation, known as Malaysia. The Prime Minister, Tunku Abdul Rahman, made the official proclamation at Stadium Merdeka.

Tunku Putra School is named after his name for the essence of his leadership and his characteristic. The school has captured part of his essence by having the motto “Kita Boleh” in the school logo which simply means ‘We Can’.
