"La Salle College Middle Swan in Perth is a school of 1400 students and is a Catholic school in the Lasallian tradition. There are four new additions to the College supporting the ethos and charism of the human and Christian education of young people: The Lasallian volunteers!
Joshua Paul, a former student of De La Salle College Malvern; Zaina Baba, a former student of Holy Spirit College, Sydney; Luca Almiento, a former student of St Bede's College Mentone; and Lam Eddie, a former student of La Salle Technical College, Hohola are all engaged in this ministry of service and support to the students. They assist in a range of activities and support students in the classroom and engage in all areas of College life. In the evenings, the Lasallian volunteers assist the boarding house staff in supporting the Aboriginal students who attend the College. They assist in the homework of students and have a supportive presence in the running of the Boarding House.
The visit was an opportunity also to present the new 4-year Lasallian Vocations plan to the senior students presenting them with all the different pathways available to them post-school. The hope is that students are more aware of the pathways they could explore including the Lasallian Brothers; the Lasallian Sisters; the Lasallian Volunteers, Youth Ministry and a Vocation in teaching. There are many expressions of living out your Lasallian Vocation everyone is invited!"
