PRESENTATION EVENING

La Salle College’s commitment to excellence and strong sense of community was shown at the 2018 Presentation Evening held at the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre to 2500 guests on Sunday 2 December.

 


The College showcased the talents of 413 performers, including Year 7 Massed Choir, Concert Band, Brass Band, Show Band, College Choir, Liturgical Dance Ensemble, De La J and De La Dance. The 239 award recipients were acknowledged for their outstanding academic achievement and special awards and 53 Student Representative Council members were introduced for 2019.
