SHOSA came into existence in 1948 and was duly registered as “The Sacred Heart Old Students’ Association”, to accommodate some ladies, ex-students of the School, who had applied for membership. At the same time, the Association adapted the motto of the School, “Berdoa serta Berusaha” to be the Association’s motto.

Throughout its 60+ years, the Association under its various presidents and committee members had proudly rendered a wide range of services to the School.
SHOSA will continue to find other areas connected to the School that needs its help.
