Lasallian Program

 

The Lasallian charism is fostered in our community. Staff and students experience training and education that continues to develop our sense of being Lasallian at the college. This year we are fortunate to have Ruby Crowe (Year 12 - 2011) as our Lasallian Youth Minister working with the students two days per week, providing a ‘Lasallian youth experience.’

Students are invited to train as Lasallian Youth Leaders each year. Approximately 40 Year 11 students take part in this program and these students then facilitate a spirituality day for Year 6 students as part of their integration into year 7. This is a fantastic day where our Year 11’s demonstrate their leadership skills and share their spirituality.

When in Year 12 the Leadership team undertake further training that will enable them to lead the College community in the ways of De La Salle. They also have opportunities to work with other senior students from other Lasallian schools.

Immersion experiences provide a much deeper experience and the Lasallian Youth Ministry offers a number of experiences to students at the end of Year 12 including trips to Balgo Hills (an Aboriginal community in central Australia) New Zealand, New Guinea and Pakistan. In January two of our Year 12 2010 students made the trip to Balgo and will be sharing these experiences with the current students.

Each year, ex-students from Cronulla, along with other ex-students from other Lasallian schools, are selected to go on the Balgo Hills Summer Camp, lasting ten days, to entertain the disadvantaged Aboriginal children during their school holidays, keeping them occupied and out of trouble. Through this experience, the volunteers act out the values of De la Salle, faith, service and community.
