If I was to give a tour of the school to visitors, there is one place that jumps out at as our first stop; the auditorium. Every morning, all of the school’s staff and students gather in the auditorium for our National Anthem, reflection and prayer, and daily announcements from the school community. Although it is easy to take for granted as a normal routine, there is something very powerful about coming together with your fellow Lasallians, from the youngest fifth grades to the most experienced teachers, to reflect, pray, and celebrate each others’ achievements. Indeed, it is this simple daily gathering that captures the true essence and core of the strong community and spirit of De La Salle – we are united under our country, united under God, and united as Lasallians. As well, the reflections on virtue and responsibility inspire each and every one of us to improve our character and perform good actions. Thus, our gatherings in the auditorium set the tone for each school days, in which we are called to serving each other and serving God.
Our daughter loved De La Salle and we are so thrilled that we introduced her to this special place. She knew from the first Open House we attended that De La Salle College would be the right fit for her. She continues to reach out to her old teachers and friends and was well-prepared for university. We feel that she took advantage of everything Del had to offer and gained confidence in herself, friends and skills for a lifetime. As an alum she looks forward to visiting Del for the Christmas Mass and to say hi over Reading week. She has worked at the DelActive summer sports camps for several years and it continues to be an absolute joy for her to return to her happy memories.
