The Class of 1963 reminisced as they had photographs taken in front of their classrooms (B Block), the original St John Baptist de La Salle statue in the Memorial Garden of the Chapel, in front of their respective House flags and reenacting their pose as young school students outside what was the original chapel.

 

 

 

CLASS OF 1988- 30 Year Reunion

On Thursday 22 November 17 school friends gathered together for a Twilight Tour of the College - 30 years after leaving the College grounds as the Graduating Class of 1988.

Stories were shared of the buildings they once used that had been changed so amazingly like the Fr Laurence Murphy SDS Senior Learning Centre.    This was once their gymnasium and Chapel.  The Peter Knox Oval was also once the drive in and they remember removing the drive-in speakers from the grounds in preparation for what would be our future oval.  


 CLASS OF 1993 - 25 Year Reunion 

On Saturday 27 October, 44 members from the Class of 1993 together with former Principal, Mr Clement Mulcahy gathered together at The Camfield to reminisce of their time at La Salle College back in 1993 and the catch up on the years that have gone by.


Simon Butler dug deep into his archives and found his 1993 woolen blazer, which he wore with pride on the evening. Simon’s father, Donald Butler also attended De La Salle College from 1956 to 1961.


Coordinators of the reunions, Kelli Jose (nee Sweeney), Natalie Thomson (nee Stockey) and Richi Barbarich said “We were thrilled to have 44 fellow class mates come to our 25 Year Reunion. It was great seeing everyone again and was just like old times.”

Through our Alumni we wish to maintain the spirit of La Salle College.

Class of 1975 - 40 Year Reunion 

The Class of 1975 held their 40th year reunion on Saturday 7 November at Mandoon Estate.    For those who were able to attend, it was an opportunity to catch up on 40 years that had passed since their last farewell and also a time to reminisce about being a student at La Salle College.  Now based in Broome, Br Fitzhardinge, La Salle College Principal from 1972 to 1973 (the Brother Fitzhardinge Trade Skills Centre is named in his honour) flew to Perth to attend this special gathering.  Mr Bevan Carter, the students’ Year 11 and 12 teacher was also in attendance.  For Mr Bevan, his association with the College continues as a Grandparent of a current student.

La Salle History – extracted from the La Salle College First Fifty Years publication.

In April 1972, a letter from the St Brigid’s School Administrative Committee was received concerning the possibility and feasibility of establishing a co-educational school combing secondary students of both La Salle and St Brigid’s.  On 8 September, a special meeting of the Board of Management was held at which the following resolution was passed:  “that La Salle College enter the field of co-education for first, second and third year as a co-institutional College with co-institutional and shared facilities, the La Salle campus to be comprised of La Salle Boys’ College and La Salle Girls’ College.” 

Co-education was a new concept for Catholics, though it had been in State schools for some time.  In 1973 when the school year commenced the girls had separate classrooms but shared external yards and grounds.  From 1974 onwards the College became completely co-educational. 

During 1973, Sr Leo was Principal of La Salle Girls’ College, while Brother Fitzhardinge was Principal of La Salle Boys’ College and in charge overall of the affairs of the combined schools.
