De La Salle College

Child Safety

De La Salle College is committed to child safety. We recognise the importance of student empowerment and participation and strive to develop the potential of those entrusted to our care.

We challenge, nurture and respect all children/young people, as well as our staff, contractors and volunteers. We have zero-tolerance of child abuse, and all allegations and safety concerns will be treated very seriously and consistently with our robust policies and procedures. We have legal and moral obligations to contact authorities when we are worried about a child’s safety, which we follow rigorously.

Like most Catholic schools, De La Salle has not been spared involvement in this most heinous of crimes. College Principal Peter Houlihan’s statement to the community is a concise outline of Malvern’s experience and our response as a community. Please view the statement here.
