Sacré Cœur Association
Our connection with our Kincoppal-Rose Bay alumnae is incredibly strong. We see our alumnae as an integral part of our school community and value the history and tradition they provide as ongoing contributors to school life at KRB.
We are very proud of our alumnae, their achievements and the contributions they make in various fields. Alumnae are very important role models to our current students.

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 Cœur Association of NSW, and Stuartholme (QLD) together. In turn we are also connected to the World Body; AMASC.
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. As a non-profit organisation, the aim of ASCA is achieving true national and international collaboration. Alumnae of all three schools are automatically lifelong members via their individual alumnae memberships.
Through ASCA, our alumnae are also connected with alumnae from Sancta Sophia College (NSW), Duchesne College (QLD) and Baradene (Auckland, New Zealand).
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 holds 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.
