Sacred Hearts School continues rolling after 150 years of service

Sacred Hearts School kicked off its 150-year anniversary with a float, marchers that included school graduates, students and parishioners, and Sister Mary Claudia Cabral on her vintage bicycle leading the way June 16 at Na Kamehameha Commemorative Pa‘u Parade down Front Street. Kim Scott played “Sister Claudia,” the school principal of 40 years ago. The principal died in a fall from a mango tree in the Maria Lanakila Church yard. “She loved mangoes,” a news release about the parade said. On the float, students, teachers and pastors harkened to Sister Mary Antoinette Almeida, ringing her courtyard school bell. She was last principal of the Third Order of the Sisters of St. Francis of Syracuse, N.Y., retiring in 2000. “Sister Antoinette” was a renowned baker, and her 1992 cookbook, “Sister Antoinette’s Favorite Recipes,” is still coveted. The Sisters of St. Francis staffed the school beginning in 1928 and left the school in 2000. The school began in 1862 at the end of the whaling days and the beginning of the sugar plantation era in a two-room building. The educational tradition continues today with a preschool-to-8th-grade program.
