PHILIPPINES - De La Salle Lipa celebrates its 60th Founding Anniversary this 2023, with the theme “DEKADA ANIM-O: Tuloy Ang Misyong Lasalyano.”

Since the school’s inception in 1962, the goal has always been to make a mark on the lives of the students who enter the campus. The Lasallian mission has always been about becoming a beacon of hope and an instrument of change. That’s why, until today, despite the rapidly evolving times, DLSL is considered a premier educational institution in Calabarzon.

With the learnings imparted inside the classrooms and the programs that drive positive social impact, DLSL continues to serve as a catalyst for positive transformation in the world. DLSL builds on its legacy on this coming foundation day by intensifying Lasallians’ sense of community. (https://60thfoundation.dlsl.edu.ph/)

MYANMAR - On February 18, 2023, more than 90 boys and girls, both present and former students of Lasalle Centre, gathered together in La Salle House (Yangon) to create a chance for young Lasallians to have a meaningful encounter with one another and to enrich the Lasallian Spirit. The program aims to attract some of the youths and get them involved in the Youth for Future program and be part of the young Lasallian alumni group.

The program started with the opening prayer followed by Br. Lucas Thein’s welcome address in which he delivered a very inspirational message about the reason for this gathering. After the message, the participants from the La Salle House (Yangon) boarding department performed a beautiful Chin traditional dance. To enrich community building, the participants enjoyed some group activities and games led by some of our teachers from Lasalle Center.

The second part of the program was the Q&A session on Lasallian Spirit. This gave the young Lasallians the opportunity to deepen their knowledge and stimulate interest in the Lasallian Mission worldwide. This session was headed by the organizing team – Br. Lucas Ah Do, Br. Moris Tang, and Br. Justine Nge Bo. The active interaction between the Brothers and the student participants showed that the objectives were well achieved. To mark the end of the program, students from the current elementary class performed a final dance followed by group photo taking. The day ended with a very lively and fraternal lunch together with the Brothers. (Text: Br. Lucas Ah Do FSC; Photos: Br. Justine Nge Bo FSC)

JAPAN - The Hakodate La Salle Mission Club asked Br. Nico Mariano FSC’s help in connecting with Br. Lucas Ah Do FSC of La Salle Myanmar. Through Zoom, we asked Br. Lucas to teach us simple Myanmar language and culture. We knew a little bit more about Myanmar through the Q&A session.

Why are we studying about Myanmar? Because the students of La Salle Bamboo School in Thailand come from Myanmar. Burmese is their mother tongue rather than Thai. It was an hour and a half of surprise and learning.

Br. Lucas, thank you very much. See you again on April 29 or 30 via Zoom. (La Salle Japan Official Facebook Page)
