De La Salle College Revesby Heights celebrated Founder's Day on Wednesday 3rd of July 2019. Founder's Day is the biggest fundraiser for the year where we raise money to support the incredible work of the Lasallian Mission Council and our twin school, La Salle High School in Khushpur, Pakistan.
The day began with the delightful Mass, organised by Mrs Marriott, our Religious Education Coordinator and celebrated by Fr John. Br Colin and Fr John commissioned 39 young men as Lasallian Youth Leaders to serve our College community.
During the Mass Br Colin Griffin also presented another 16 students with a black Lasallian star in recognition of their participation in the Christian Mission Faith in Action Program of service to the community. We are blessed and fortunate to have such a high number of senior students offering their time and talents to serve the College and the broader community.
After Mass, celebrations continued with students enjoying rides, food stalls, and other activities. It was amazing to see the involvement of both staff and students in the organisation and preparation for the day.
$9,000 was raised, which will assist La Salle High School, Khushpur to build a new female toilet block.
I thank all staff, management, students, and their families for their generous support in making our Founder's Day a huge success. Well done, keep up the spirit! Live Jesus in our hearts, forever.
