The month of prayer is an additional response to the local work being done in affected...

In the Lasallian world, La Salle High School Malkhanwala started some years ago on April 14, 2008. Prior to this, it was technical school which was closed. At the request and invitation of Most. Rev. Bishop Joseph Couttes, the De La Salle Brothers, took a radical step to open one more branch in the locality of Warispura, Malkhanwala. The first principal of the school was Br Christie Dorus who built the school up initially enrolling 31 students and 3 teachers. La Salle High School Malkhanw...

MESSAGE FROM HIS HOLINESS POPE FRANCIS: THIRD WORLD DAY OF THE POOR
The hope of the poor shall not perish for ever 1. "The hope of the poor will not perish for ever" (Ps 9:19). These words of the Psalm remain timely. They express a profound truth that faith impresses above all on the hearts of the poor, restoring lost hope in the face of injustice, sufferings and the uncertainties of life. The Psalmist describes the condition of the poor and the arrogance of those who oppress them (cf. 10, 1-10). He invokes God's judgment to restore j...

St James College Balgo Immersion Trip 2019
Recently twelve students and four staff members from St James College East Bentleigh travelled to remote Western Australia, for the 2019 Balgo Immersion Trip. After departing Bentleigh East on a cold morning, arriving in sweltering Balgo some 36 hours later was initially quite a shock. I commend the twelve students who gave up their own time to spend ten days in a completely different environment, living out their Lasallian call to serve. The boys quickly adjusted to Balgo, a remote Abori...

Leadership Camp: an awakening experience; even those who didn't know they were asleep
Three days, two nights, and quite a few boxes of tissues later, the year 11 leadership camp drew to a close. As myself and the rest of year 11 said our goodbyes, I couldn't help but notice that the hugs were longer, and the smiles were wider. As a cohort, we had set out bright and early on Wednesday morning with the uncertainty of what was to come; we expected reflection, meditation, mediocre camp food. Upon arriving at the beautiful mountain range in Toowoomba, we were immediately th...

OAKHILL STUDENTS HELPING THOSE LESS FORTUNATE
Team India and Team Philippines has been an ongoing incredible part of the Oakhill culture for many years now. This year was particularly special for both trips with over 60 Oakhill students travelling to the less fortunate countries and their lives changing forever. Team India took off at the end of September, with 60 students headed to the amazing country in hopes of helping communities with little realisation that these communities would inspire them forever. The large group of student...
