Friends of La Salle College (FOLSC)
The College has a volunteer parent group collectively known as the Friends of La Salle College (FOLSC). This group allows parents the opportunity to be involved by supporting the various College activities on a practical level. Parents are invited to register their interest at the beginning of each academic year. Many areas of involvement exist and these are categorised under five broad sub-committees which cover a number of activities. They are:
Grounds and Maintenance
Parents are invited to assist with Busy Bees or offer their speciality services such as painting, brick laying, landscaping etc
Hospitality and Fundraising
Hospitality is a broad term used for not only assisting in providing food and drink at various functions but may also include the setting up and dismantling of a variety of activities that take place. Such examples include setting up for College assemblies, assisting with auctions at the annual Quiz Night, dismantling/putting away after the Student Art Exhibition.
Parents are invited to organise, in consultation with the relevant Deputy, seminars/guest speakers on topics relevant for adolescents. Such topics as cyber-safety, self-esteem building, strengthening resilience in adolescents or any other topics the community deems appropriate.
