Community

Being a student at De La Salle College means being a part of something much greater. While our buildings and grounds create the physical space for us to teach, learn and play, it is our people that create the community.

Through our Old Collegians’ Association, we ensure former students stay connected long after leaving the College. Parents too, play an invaluable role within the De La Salle community. Our Parent Network keeps families connected and facilitates healthy relationships between parents and staff. Sporting clubs, including the DLS Basketball Club and Old Collegians’ Football Club, give players and supporters a reason to don the Blue and Gold.
