Established in 1912, De La Salle has a rich history. From our first class of 54 students in a parish hall to now educating more than 1,100 students across three campuses, our emphasis remains on developing the existing traditions and strengths of our past.

De La Salle College operates on a culture of achievement and challenge, where each student is encouraged and supported to achieve his full potential.

At De La Salle College the emphasis is on consolidating core knowledge, skills and understanding.

Students study a core pathway at the primary years through to Years 7 and 8. The Tiverton Campus hosts students in Years 5-8 and focuses on delivering a true Middle Years experience and providing well-rounded and personalised academic, wellbeing and spiritual support.

Year 9 students experience a program that is authentic, distinctive and allows
students to lead their own learning through collaboration and inquiry on a dedicated campus in Malvern East.

At the senior years, the focus is on personal excellence and preparing our students for the opportunities that exist beyond the school gates. Year 10 students access over 45 elective subjects allowing them to find and explore their passions and interests. In Years 11 and 12 students may choose the VCE, VET or VCAL pathway that suits them.

Our specialised programs and innovative pathways options enable all students to reach their potential and ensure our students are appropriately challenged and supported as individuals throughout their school years.
Located on three campuses, facilities include a large gymnasium, basketball courts, weight lifting room, multi purpose halls, performing arts centre, computer laboratories, two libraries, two chapels, science laboratories, (general as well as specialist); and a creative arts complex encompassing design technology, art, graphics, photography and music studios.

At De La Salle College, we understand that learning goes beyond the classroom. To support and enhance our curriculum, students are encouraged to access our extensive range of co?curricular opportunities, where there truly is something for everyone.

Our House System supports student wellbeing, fostering a deeper sense of belonging, whilst also encompassing a plethora of co?curricular opportunities for students, from sports competitions to fundraising initiatives. Our rich music and drama programs cater for students interested in the performing arts, with performance opportunities and private tuition available. Students studying French or Italian have the opportunity to participate in international tours.

Cultural tours are available to Wilcannia, Papua New Guinea, Manila and Sri Lanka, where social justice and giving back to local communities is the focus. We offer a wide variety of sport choices at all levels, as well as state?level competitions in sports such as weightlifting, cycling and snow?sports. In line with our Lasallian values to respect all persons and have concern for the poor, all students have the opportunity to be involved in our social justice programs and are expected to participate in fundraising or volunteer initiatives each year.

Through co?curricular involvement, students build self?esteem and confidence, ensuring they leave De La Salle College as well?rounded, capable and principled members of society.

At De La Salle College, we are committed to our faith, our educational community and our spirit of service and compassion.
Learning to live and lead is at the core of life at De La Salle College. We take pride in our record as a learning community that encourages and expects personal excellence.
To be an outstanding school striving for excellence and innovative academic achievement in a community of self support to best prepare men for our world.
De La Salle College is a Catholic College in the Lasallian tradition, enabling students in a community of faith and excellence to achieve their full potential with integrity and distinction.

De La Salle Alumni - Rohan Laging - Emergency Physician

Now an Emergency and Trauma physician at The Alfred Hospital, Rohan Laging, who graduated from De La Salle College in 1997, says he was aware of his calling from a very young age. “I was in Year 7 at the College and recall giving back blows to a fellow student who was choking on a peanut,” says Rohan. “Fortunately, I was successful and this sparked my interest in the time-critical field of Emergency and Trauma Medicine.”

A commitment to life-long learning and love of variety paved the way for Rohan to take on two exciting senior roles: staff specialist at The Alfred Emergency and Trauma Centre, and Emergency Director (Clinical) at John Fawkner Private Hospital. After graduating from Monash University with a Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery with honours, Rohan was motivated to continue his study in emergency medicine. He attributes his interest in this area to the huge diversity of work involved and the broad base of medical knowledge the specialisation requires. “The tension and time critical nature is completely different from other medical fields,” he says.

With approximately 70,000 patients passing through The Alfred Hospital’s Emergency and Trauma Centre every year, Rohan has more than his share of life-saving responsibility. Long hours, high pressure and quick thinking are all part of the job. “The subject and pace shift from time-critical, team-based resuscitation and trauma management to counselling, department management and minor medical problems, sometimes occurs within minutes and requires both focus and sensitivity,” Rohan said.

The fast pace of Rohan’s work is reflected in his love of fast cars. To keep on top of the stress and the long hours he runs to work. In his free time, Rohan loves to cook and spend time with his wife and two daughters.

At De La Salle, our students learn to live and lead. A simple philosophy, but very important as boys learn to take on leadership roles and become active members of the school community. Leadership helps students develop self-respect and come to respect others in the process. Through the College’s robust social justice program and immersion in the Lasallian ethos we see our students develop a strong moral compass and compassion for those around them.

Whilst the College encourages the practice of the Catholic faith, we respect the religious affiliation of every member of the community. Most importantly, we deliver a quality education in all subjects and provide students with the skills to be active and successful citizens in today’s society. To ensure we are providing the best environment in this sense, the College has put in place the essential infrastructure and technology to help our young men to learn to live and lead.

De La Salle continually strives to build and improve the programs to enable our young men to be educated in a respectful and encouraging, contemporary learning environment where strong family values and academic achievement are reinforced. Our teachers know and understand boys. We encourage leadership, vision and innovation in teaching and learning and support students’ growth via a focused student wellbeing program.

We are also a community where the desire to achieve academically, and according to one’s abilities, is fundamental. As a comprehensive school we attempt to tailor all our programs to provide the optimal learning environment for each and every student, where each can achieve personal excellence..

So the elements of De La Salle might be summarised thus: faith in God and in each other,service to the community both local and overseas and especially to those most in need, and within a community of young men striving to learn, to live and to lead.
