Oakhill College celebrated Founders Day on Friday 12th May. In 1900 St John Baptist de La Salle was canonized as a saint in the Catholic Church and on the 15 May 1950 St La Salle was named Patron Saint of Teachers.
It was wonderful to have a great number of Brothers as part of the celebration for Founders Day. Thank you to our Celebrant Father Harry Kennedy from St Agatha's Parish, Pennant Hills, and to the Principal of De La Salle College, Ashfield, Mr Stephen Kennaugh, for joining us.
Ms Miranda Chow, CEO of the Lasallian Foundation, addressed the College.
At the conclusion of the mass pre-recordings of congratulations from Lasallian schools from around Asia and the Pacific were shown linking Oakhill College to the global celebration of Founders Day, involving 1 million students globally.
The College also express gratitude to all the staff who prepared an amazing liturgy and music, and to the students for their reverence and sense of celebration.
