De La Salle College is centrally located in Malvern and provides a Catholic education in the Lasallian tradition for boys in Years 4 to 12. The college was founded in 1912 and has since established itself as a distinguished provider of Catholic education in Melbourne, promoting a strong culture of social justice and a community of faith and excellence.The college motto is ‘Learn, Live, Lead’, representing its contemporary approach to all it does and the values instilled in young men.
Learn: A contemporary learning community striving for excellence, innovation and creativity, engaging the individual learner in the 21st-century world.
LIVE: By embracing the breadth, opportunities and challenges of the co-curricular program, students access a rich and varied experience and develop a strong compassion for those around them.
Lead: The college recognises that today’s students are tomorrow’s leaders. That is why it develops young men who go into the world after school with the qualities of a confident leader: self-awareness, self-regulation, motivation and empathy.
Curriculum: The dynamic curriculum ensures students are challenged academically and have a choice of specialised learning pathways. Students study a core pathway at the primary years through to Years 7 and 8, with electives available from Year 9. At Year 10 students have more than 45 subjects to choose from and in Years 11 and 12 can choose the VCE, VET or VCAL pathway that suits them.
Sport: Sport is an integral part of college life and a wide range of sports are offered, including hockey, soccer, chess, basketball, cricket, AFL, skiing, volleyball, weightlifting, golf, tennis and table tennis. Students also have the opportunity to participate in three major carnivals each year: athletics, swimming and cross country.
Extra-Curricular Activities: Music is offered from the primary years, with Year 4 students learning the ukulele before moving on to a brass, string or wind instrument in Years 5 and 6. Music is compulsory for Year 7 and 8 students and outside the classroom a large range of bands and ensembles are available for students to join. Regular performances are held each year so that every student has the opportunity to build their confidence performing for an audience.
Primary students study Italian and Year 7 students study a semester each of French and Italian before electing which to continue with. After-school Mandarin and Chinese Culture classes are also available.
The extensive range of co-curricula opportunities complements classroom learning and provides a broadening of perspective for students. From self-defence classes, overseas exchanges and social justice initiatives, there really is something to interest every boy.
College tours: Join a student-led college tour and see the college ‘in action’. During the tour you will have the opportunity to visit both campuses, meet students, teachers and the principal and learn about the robust education program. College tours are held once per month throughout each school term. Bookings are essential. For further information please visit the college website.
