Message From The Patron YB Datuk David Teng Lung Chi
The School-Student or Teacher-Student relationship is very much the same as that of Master-Disciple. Our Asian culture teaches the children to show respect and gratitude to their parents.

It is heartening to note that the SHS AA of Kuching is very active in organizing activities to foster fellowship among the Old Boys of Sacred Heart School who reside in Kuching. I would also like to commend them for their continual support in ensuring that Sacred Heart School continues to maintain its position as premier school so as to provide quality education for future generations.
Your contributions in complementing the Government's effort in the field of education are indeed very noble. Do keep it up!
