Welcome to Fiesta! Featured

To commemorate our College’s 155th anniversary, Candentia, the Student Council co-organised Fiesta, a fun fair with the Parent-Teacher Association. On the auspicious occasion, the presence of our former principals, Sr Maria and Sr Bernadette, has added tremendous joy to us.  It is our pleasure to have Ms Teresina Chan, Ex-officio member of AA, as well as Ms Fiona Chan and Ms Winnie Yu, Chairmen of AA and PTA respectively, with us at the opening ceremony.

, meaning ‘celebration’ in Spanish, serves as a platform for Sacred Heartists from different generations to celebrate the school’s success in collaborative efforts.  The fun-raising programme involved current students, teachers and parents in unleashing their potentials to recreate a thoughtful fair that accommodate guests with interests in puppet shows, drama, dance and singing performances, Chinese culture, European cultures, street food, molecular ice-cream, aromatic coffee and the like.  Student Councillors' one-of-a-kind decor with chains of bubbly balloons dangling across the playground was breath-taking enough. Those visiting the stalls run by different clubs and teams in the covered playground and thematic games in the classroom would definitely tell you what a welcoming atmosphere there was in the air.

What’s more, visitors who wished to take home gorgeous anniversary keepsakes could shop around those two days for souvenirs of their own choices from booths run by the Young Leaders and Entrepreneurs Team and the Student Council at the entrance. Or they could purchase a few photos from the entrance capturing unforgettable moments of the school life.  The choices were exhaustive. The funds will ultimately be spending on S5 Extended Learning Week, a learning week for developing learner autonomy through exploration.

As in Sr Veronica’s prayer at the opening ceremony, we have to pay tribute to the Canossian sisters who responded to the calling for educating girls and went to great lengths to establish a school for girls who used to have no way for schooling. We are also in debt with all the dedicated alumnae, parents and friends for their unyielding support for Sacred Heart vision of education through prayers, sponsorships and voluntary service.
