Continuing the Spirit
The Alumni celebrated its 28th Alumni Annual Reunion Dinner on 13th October 2015 at Sarawak Club with the theme 'Continuing the Spirit'. It was a great event where members and their family members met again in this important event to commemorate the formation of the alumni, mark its progress through the years especially after two years of the passing of Brother Albinus. The President kicked off the event with his speech about the importance of continuing the spirit among the students of Sacred Heart. He also announced about the plan by the Alumni to purchase a piece of property in the form of a shop lot at Chong Lin Park which will be used as the Alumni's Resource Centre, office and activity place, meeting place and tuition centre for Yayasan Lasallian Kuching. Indeed a noble step forward since the formation of the Alumni and the aspiration to make Saacred Heart's presence felt.
