Combined Lasallian Staff Formation Day
On Friday 23 August, De La Salle College gathered with St Bede’s College Mentone, St James’ College East Bentleigh and St John’s College Dandenong to celebrate the Tercentenary Year with a combined Staff Formation Day. Joined also by the De La Salle Brothers from the Malvern and Mentone Communities, as well as from Sydney, whose presence on the day further enhanced and enriched the significance of the day.
The day explored the theme of the Tercentenary year, “One Heart. One Commitment. One Life”. The guest keynote speakers; the much respected Br Gerard Rummery fsc and Dr Rose-Marie Prosser, reflected on this.
We were also privileged to have with us Brother Visitor, David Hawke fsc. In his final remarks at the gathering, Br David commented on how St John Baptist De La Salle “would take great pride in the fact that the ‘human and Christian education’ of young people is so alive in the four Lasallian schools in Melbourne.”
In this special year of the Tercentenary, to be able to come together on such an occasion, to continue to recognise, celebrate and build up the Lasallian Institute and the legacy of the founding work of St John Baptist de La Salle, that is how we live, One Heart. One Commitment. One Life.
