Kincoppal – Rose Bay maintains strong connections with all alumnae and the rich history and tradition that these past students provide. Our alumnae are an integral part of our school community, and participate in many events and make a wonderful contribution to the life of the School. We are very proud of our alumnae and are always delighted to celebrate their achievements and the contributions they make in various fields. Alumnae are very important role models to our current students.
The School makes strong connections with alumnae through assistance with all Class Reunions. An Alumnae and Current Parents Morning Tea, held annually, is an opportunity for alumnae to make connections across their children’s year groups. As well, regional and international gatherings help maintain significant friendships with alumnae living in country NSW or overseas. Please contact Mary Cook, Director of Development, email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like further information on any of these events.

National and International Collaboration
Association Mondial des Anciens et Anciennes du Sacré-Cœur, (AMASC) was formed in 1960 in Brussels at the request of Reverend Mother General de Valon. Reverend Mother de Valon saw the important and vital role the alumnae and alumni could play in fostering the work and spirit of the Society of the Sacred Heart. National Associations of women and men were organized to form the World Association that included alumnae and alumni from over 38 countries.
Locally, the Australian Sacré Cœur Association (ASCA) is the vital body which links the alumnae associations from Sacré Cœur Burke Road (VIC), Sacre Coeur Association of NSW, Stuartholme (QLD) together; and in turn connects us to the World Body; AMASC.
Sancta Sophia College (NSW) and Duchesne College (QLD) whilst not active or paying members of ASCA are captured as part of the community of Sacré Cœur and are connected to the relevant schools via the RSCJ’s administration of the colleges when they were initially set up.
In addition, Baradene in Auckland New Zealand is the fourth Sacred Heart School that consists of the Australia and New Zealand Network of Sacred Heart Schools in the Australia New Zealand Province.
The purpose of ASCA is to create and maintain friendship and solidarity between Australian Alumnae and all National Federations and Associations of Alumnae of the Sacred Heart with the aim of achieving true national and international collaboration. It is a non-profit organisation. Alumnae of all three schools are automatically lifelong members via their individual alumnae memberships.
Every four years the responsibility of forming a committee and running ASCA is rotated around the three Sacred Heart schools in Australia. Sacré Cœur in Melbourne hold the Presidency (until end 2019) and can respond to any questions you may have in regards to the AMASC and the international alumnae Congress that is held every four years. The next Congress is anticipated to be held in 2022.
