Dear Lasallians and Stephenians,


15 May 2020 is a special day for all of us as it marks the 70th Anniversary of the declaration of our founder St. John Baptist de La Salle as Patron Saint of Teachers.


Today we honour our founder’s life, work and mission as one Lasallian community. As we join our fellow Lasallian schools and friends from Singapore and around the world in marking this day, do visit the La Salle Singapore Facebook Page and watch the 70th Anniversary video there. Or, you could watch the video on the YouTube site itself - Link

Let us endeavor to lead a life of Faith, Service and  Community, be men of integrity and men of service, so as to lift The Last, The Least and The Lost amongst us towards a better world, in every moment and every sense.


And, in the words of the last stanza and chorus of the anthem We Are Lasallians:


        Today the need remains, for men like De La Salle

        Continuing his mission

        Working for the good of all

        We are siblings to each other, across all walks of life

        And we shall ever shine like stars through trial by fire and strife

 

        We are one, but we are many

        And from all the lands of earth we come

        We share a dream, and sing with one voice

        I am, you are, we are Lasallian
