De La Salle College .::. Principals Message

From the Principal

Welcome to De La Salle College, a Catholic boys college in the Lasallian Tradition.   You are joining a unique faith based community. De La Salle draws strongly on the life and example of St John the Baptist De La Salle. The true measure of a Lasallian School lies in the determination of its staff and students to create a community of faith and love, one in which students receive an excellent education that enables them to experience and be transformed by God's saving love in their lives.
We believe every boy brings a range of talents to share and develop and above all goodwill to contribute positively to the College and wider community. Our expectations are very high – we expect all students to work consistently and hard to reach their potential in all areas.

We believe that each graduate of the College will be:

  • A man of faith – who prays and integrates the Gospel values, serves others, especially the poor, and appreciates the Catholic and Lasallian tradition.
  • A man of community – who respects himself and others, embraces social and personal responsibility, and nurtures a healthy lifestyle.
  • A man of excellence – who thinks creatively, critically, independently, and collaboratively; who strives for excellence in academic, cultural and sporting pursuits and pursues lifelong learning.
  • A man of service – working for and alongside his family, community and those in need.
