Important Notices

Health Centre Notice

De La Salle College would like to ask for your co‐operation in an important matter. Members of our school community receive medical treatment which puts them at serious risk if they are exposed to infectious illnesses, in particular: chicken‐pox, measles, mumps or shingles.

For chicken‐pox, shingles and measles, a special protective injection is available, however, it is only effective if given within 72 hours of exposure, and only lasts for one month.

If your son is suspected of having one of these illnesses, it is very important that they do not attend school. It is also important that while your son is unwell they remain at home until they are no longer contagious.

If your son has chicken‐pox, measles, mumps or shingles or is suspected of having a contagious disease please contact the school immediately.

The College values your support for the wellbeing of all our students. Please don’t hesitate to contact De La Salle Health Centre, if you have any questions.

Mrs Kylie Upton,

PNG Clothes Drive – Tiverton and Kinnoull

For the remainder of Term 2, the Year 11 VCAL students and the Student Social Justice Group will be conducting a clothes drive. We are asking for your help in donating any good quality used clothes that you may not use anymore.

All clothes donated will be distributed to our Lasallian Communities in PNG, in particular, our schools in Bomana and Port Moresby.

The following items will be accepted:

  • pants
  • shorts
  • t‐shirts
  • shirts
  • jeans
  • singlets
  • skirts
  • dresses

Donations can be brought to school in a plastic bag, to be collected during morning Homeroom by the social justice group. We ask that each student please contribute at least ONE item of clothing.

The drive will end on 28 June (last day of Term 2). Please share this with your family and friends! This is a wonderful opportunity for you to support the social needs of our Lasallian communities who are in short supply of these types of goods. If you have any questions please ask any of the students completing Year 11 VCAL, Mr James Biviano or Mr Shane Mackintosh.

St Austin’s House Coordinator

Mission Action Day Awards

The annual Mission Action Day Awards will be presented at the conclusion of the Co‐curricular Arts Assembly on Friday 28 June. The Mission Action Day awards acknowledge the extraordinary efforts of individual students in obtaining sponsorship money.

The highest individual fundraiser will be presented with the Ian Oliver Mission Action Award. Mr Ian Oliver, who retired from the College in 2015, was a driving force behind the success of Mission Action Day over many years. The top ten students will also be presented with a Certificate Of Recognition from Mr Houlihan.

The College once again congratulates all students on their efforts. The money you have raised will support many vital Lasallian development projects and initiatives in remote Australia and Asia.

The annual Mission Action Day raffle will also be drawn at the Assembly. Students will be allocated a raffle ticket for each $50 increment they raised. Three $70 gift vouchers will be presented, one for each campus.

There are a small number of students still in the process of collecting and returning their pledged sponsorship money. This money is now overdue and I ask students to attend to this as soon as possible, so our 2019 Mission Action Day Fundraiser can be concluded.

Mr Tom Ryan
Deputy Principal, Staff and Operations
