We are very excited to tell you, our Sacred Heartists and the world, that we have reached our targeted $20 million for the school’s 150th Anniversary School Development Project. As we have noted on various occasions, we have been very fortunate to have a kind benefactor who has agreed to contribute $10 million for the Auditorium plus another $5 million in a dollar-to-dollar matching scheme for the IT centre.
We are happy to announce that Mrs Charity Fung and her two sons, Dr Victor Fung and Dr William Fung, through the kind graces of the Fung Hon Chu Foundation have agreed to make this significant donation. Mrs Fung is an esteemed graduate prior to the Second World War and had been active in the Alumnae Association. We are extremely grateful for their generosity in making this project a reality which will benefit generations of students to come.
On March 20th 2011, the school playground was warmed by the presence of more than 700 Walkathon participants “of spirit gay and strong” for a worthy cause organized by the SHCC Parent Teacher Association. Alumnae, Sisters, teachers, parents and students from the kindergarten, primary and secondary sections gathered in front of a façade of paintings –‘Formation of Hearts’, to raise fund for the extension of our school compound. We were moreover honored by the presence of our distinguished alumnae: Mrs. Anson Chan, our former Chief Secretary for Administration, Professor Rosie Young, Former Pro-Vice-Chancellor of University of Hong Kong, Ms Prudence Chan, General Manager of TVB- International Operation; Sister Cynthia Chan, Sister Marie Remedios, Sister Kwok of Sacred Heart Canossian Kindergarten and Dr. Chow of Sacred Heart Canossian School.
