SACRED Heart School Old Students’ Association (Shosa) is organising their annual reunion on April 1.

“We are looking forward to welcoming home many former students and teachers.

“This year we are marking our alma mater’s 121st anniversary,” said Shosa president Penghulu Yong King Sung during a pre Chinese New Year meeting and dinner.

Yong said the forthcoming reunion will be held at Kingwood Hotel, Sibu.

“We hope those who couldn’t make it for our school’s 120th grand anniversary in November last year will make an effort to attend.

“We typically hold our school’s reunion in April but last year, due largely to it being our 120th anniversary, and also due to uncertainties about borders reopening, we decided to hold it on November 5,” said Yong.

For the 2023 reunion, Shosa is reaching out to St Elizabeth School Old Students’ Association (Seosa) to jointly host the event.

The joint reunions typically draw around 800 to a thousand people annually.

Former students of both schools have been urged to contact their respective alumni organisations for details.

Sacred Heart was founded by the Mill Hill Brothers in 1902, before the La Salle Brothers took over in 1953.

The school is famed for producing outstanding students and alumni who continue contributing long after they have left school.
