THE Assunta Alumni is hosting its triple celebration on Oct 13 at Connexion Conference & Event Centre in Bangsar South, Kuala Lumpur, to honour its Diamond Jubilee milestone in a 1920s style.

Apart from turning 60, 2018 marks the 90th year of the school’s well-respected former principal and founder Datin Paduka Sister Enda Ryan.

Fondly known as the “singing nun” for her creative talents, Sister Enda will also celebrate her 70th platinum jubilee as a nun.

Set to play the role of a fundraiser as they exhibit the Assunta spirit, the event will see about 800 attendees comprising former students, past and present teachers as well as retired principals under one roof.

Assunta Alumni Association president and former student Christina Chan stressed on the significance of the fundraising initiatives and how they were steered by the awareness and commitment to give back to their alma mater.

She said they were grateful.

“The school’s lease expires in two years.

“We hope to hit RM63,000 to help cover the school’s land lease renewal, in addition to the irrigation and drainage fees,” she said.

For RM350 per person or RM3,500 per table, attendees will get to enjoy good food while being entertained by the 1920s Charleston and Lindy Hop performances.

Themed “The Roaring Twenties”, attendees are encouraged to dress in flapper frocks with adornments like diamante tiaras, silk shawls, feather boas or long pearl necklaces to complement their ensemble.

The best dressed attendee will win the Best Dressed Flapper Award.

“They will also win a prize through a raffle draw,” added Chan.

For reservations, call 012-216 7181 (Chan), 012-398 1179 (Angie) or 019-732 6232 (Chrishanne), or email assuntaalumnisec@gmail.com
