Upcoming Centenary Celebrations at De La Salle Ashfield

Students, staff, parents and alumni are all closely involved in celebrations over coming months, marking the 100th year of De La Salle College Ashfield.

New statues were recently unveiled in the front courtyard of the school honouring Mary the Mother of God and St John Baptist De La Salle.

The finely crafted statues were funded through donations from Old Boys of the college, many of whom are actively involved in planning some of the centenary celebrations.

On Friday 6 May, a Mass will be held at 11am at St Mary's Cathedral in Sydney with former college captains invited to be part of the procession.

A former Brother Principal of the college, Peter McIntosh has been invited to deliver an address at the Mass.

That evening a Formal Dinner will be held at the Waterview Club at Bicentennial Park at 6:30pm.

Tickets for the event are $80 per person and guests are asked to RSVP before 8 April if they wish to attend the mass and/or the dinner.

De La Salle Ashfield has a long and proud history as a Lasallian school and the college is also planning to honour all its former Principals through a panel of photos around the school administration block this year.
