Heartiest Movement 2015 - A Tribute to the 155th Anniversary of SHCC

On 22 September the Sacred Heart Canossian College Alumnae Association Education and Charitable Fund presented a fund-raising performance, held at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University.  Heartiest Movement 2015 marked 155 years of education at SHCC by showcasing  a variety of dances  and  featuring dancers from four to sixty years of age. The show’s success was a concerted effort of the school Dance Team, the Stage Management Team and many an alumnae.

The two-hundred and seventy participating dancers included kindergarten and primary students, as well as past and present SHCC students. Some of the performers were founding members of the school Dance Club forty-seven years ago.  The vast repertoire included 18 sets featuring Chinese, Western, Korean, Japanese and modern dance numbers.

Members of the audience including Ms Elizabeth Law, Chairperson of SHCCAAECF; Ms Fiona Chan,  Chairperson of SHCCAA; and Sr Veronica Fok, our School Principal were captivated by the colourful visuals and vibrant movement of the dancers.  Also in attendance, and very much enjoying the show, were our guests of honour, Sr Marie Remedios, School Manager; and Sr Agnes Law, our School Supervisor.

The Heartiest Movement 2015 show was just the latest in a series of events that have taken place in the last ten months commemorating SHCC’s 155th Anniversary.   Others have included: The Heartslink Charity Walk in November, The School Fun Fair in March, The Anniversary Celebration Homecoming Concert in April, The Thanksgiving Mass in April, The Day of Gratitude in May and the School’s Fashion show in July.

Thanks to the Organising Committee and everyone who helped make Heartiest Movement 2015 such a great success! The funds raised will help to provide sponsorship and scholarships to support an all-round education for our present and future students.  BRAVO!

A Tribute to 155th Anniversary of SHCC ― Heartslink Charity Walk

On 29 November, Sacred Heart Canossian College Alumnae Association Education and Charitable Fund launched a fund-raising event at Central and Western District Promenade as a tribute to the Sacred Heart Canossian College’s 155th Anniversary.


Established on 14 February 2008, the Fund aims to promote education for youngsters and offer community service to the neglected in society. This year’s charity walk was a dual-purpose one: for one thing, it raised funds for SHCC Heartslink Programme, a project for students from the local low income group. For another, it marked the beginning of a series of anniversary celebration in the following months: Fun Fair in March, Anniversary Celebration Homecoming Concert in April, Thanksgiving Mass in April and Fashion Show in July, to name but a few.

Apart from official presentation of souvenirs and credits to generous alumna-sponsors, the charity walk was an alfresco carnival exhibiting the versatility of Sacred Heartist talents. There were one-of-a-kind student performances including the School Orchestra’sPirates of the Caribbean, a string ensemble, School Choir’s Recipe for A Song and Praise His Holy Name. Miss Shandy Gan, our gifted singsong- writer- graduate, brought us a treat to To Bossa and a song of her latest film, 點對點.

At the Tamar Park carnival, alumna and current student bodies put up game booths for amusement and medical information booth for offering visitors professional advice. The games booths attracted many a visitor and their families. There were balloon twisting, hand painting and games about our College.

Just few steps away the park at iBakery Gallery Café, the thoughtful alumnae arranged charity sales for raising an extra dollar with their unique souvenirs. iBakery Gallery Café is a social enterprise operated by the Tung Wah Group of Hospitals. The Café employs people with disabilities.

Without the efforts of Alumnae Association, Parent-Teacher Association, the School Choir, the School Orchestra, the Student Council, Art Club and Green Torch, teachers and the janitor, the charity walk-cum-outdoor carnival would not have been through.
