Greetings to the parents, students, staff and our wider lasallian community, my name is James Biviano and I am taking on the role of Youth Minister for 2019. I graduated from De La Salle College Malvern in 2017. I was fortunate enough to have held the role of 2017 College Captain. This was a great opportunity to share in the faith and charism of this Lasallian school.
My new role at the De La Salle College, Malvern is committed to serving this lasallian family and helping students achieve their full potential. It is my job to enact the lasallian values of faith service and community, and to be an advocate for the College's various social justice outreach programs.
I will be working closely with Year 11 students to create a heightened sense of community amongst the school, with an emphasis on the support of the less fortunate in our community, to which our Mission Action Day funds and other fundraising events will seek to support.
Our 2019 College theme for the Tercentenary is 'a Quality Education', and I will be working closely with students to help guide and support them to achieve their academic goals.
I am very passionate about developing our community of brothers throughout the school, and emphasising the importance of building relationships with all those around you, as the greatest gift I received from the College is the friendships I have made and the sense of camaraderie.
Serving as a Lasallian Youth Minister will enable me to provide students with the opportunity to develop numerous skills, and feel more included and involved in the life of the College.
