De La Salle College

Centenary Celebrations

In 2012, De La Salle College celebrated 100 years of offering Catholic education to boys in Melbourne.

Over one hundred years ago the founding Brothers arrived from Ireland and started the first classes in the original campus in Stanhope Street, now the Tramways Museum.

The enrolment of 54 boys that first year has grown both in number and in reputation. Today De La Salle boasts a student population of 1,160 boys spread across two campuses and an alumni of more than 14,000 Old Collegians. This community has shaped our history and the proud tradition that is De La Salle College, Malvern.

With Faith and Zeal Resplendent

To celebrate the centenary of De La Salle College, Malvern, we published a 120 page, full colour, hardback pictorial history of the history of the college. This beautifully illustrated book, entitled With Faith and Zeal Resplendent, was initiated and co-authored by alumni Nicholas Quin (1963) and Steve Stefanopoulos (1992). The college is indebted to both men for their outstanding endeavour. This superb book showcases the many people, places and events over our first 100 years.

The book is now available for purchase at 50% off ($25). Please contact the College Alumni Office to order your copy.
