Announcing the launch of our new website

Dear Fellow Past Pupils,

After a couple of months of planning, we are delighted to announce the launch of our new website.  We hope you like the fresh new look and the improved navigation that will allow you to find information more quickly and easily.  We have some interesting new pages, links to websites relevant to the Sacred Heart Schools and AMASC International, and pages giving details of past and present events. We have also introduced a photo gallery which we hope to add to in the future. 

The purpose of our website is to keep you informed about AMASC activities, events and notices.

We value your opinions so please contact us to let us know what you think of our new website, all comments and feedback are most welcome.  Suggestions for new information or topics are also welcome.

Wishing you all good health and happiness,

Joanne Sheehan
