Teaching & Learning

Curriculum LaSalle Catholic College offers students a wide range of subjects and academic opportunities. Religious Education In proclaiming the Gospel, LaSalle Catholic College strives to make known the values and teachings of Jesus Christ. St John Baptist de la Salle was convinced that touching the hearts of our students and inspiring them with the Christian spirit is the greatest miracle a Catholic school can perform.  Extension Classes “All students regardless of race, age or gender, by virtue of their dignity as human persons, have a right to an education that is suited to their particular needs and adapted to their ability.”   Pope Paul VI Extra Curriculum  

St. John Baptist De La Salle

Founder of the Institute of the Brothers of the Christian Schools, Patron of Christian Teachers. John Baptist de La Salle was born into a world very different from our own. He was the first son of wealthy parents living in France over 300 years ago. Born at Reims, John Baptist de La Salle received the tonsure at age eleven and was named Canon of the Reims Cathedral at sixteen. Though he had to assume the administration of family affairs after his parents died, he completed his theological studies and was ordained a priest on April 9, 1678.Two years later he received a doctorate in theology. Meanwhile he became tentatively involved with a group of rough and barely literate young men in order to establish schools for poor boys. At that time a few people lived in luxury, but most of the people were extremely poor: peasants in the country, and slum dwellers in the towns. Only, a few could send their children to school; most children had little hope for the future. Moved by the plight of the poor who seemed so “far from salvation” either in this world or the next, he determined to put his own talents and […]

Public Speaking Debating Chess Robotics SPORT LaSalle Catholic College is a coeducational secondary school catering for the sporting needs of our students. Students in Years 7-11 all participate in a weekly sports program that operates on a Thursday afternoon.   The College provides students with the opportunity to participate in sport as a normal curricular activity as well as at a representative level.  Doctor’s appointments and other personal business are not to be arranged for Thursday afternoons.  It is normal school time and therefore usual attendance requirements exist. Whole school Swimming and Athletics Carnivals are held each year.  The College Cross Country Carnival is open to any student who would like to complete. REPRESENTATIVE SPORT Representative sport has played a large part in the history of LaSalle Catholic College. Sport provides our students with a sense of belonging, pride and achievement. We believe that the life long lessons that can be learned on the sporting arena, such as respect, self-discipline and dedication, can be transferred to other areas of their lives. The College is a member of the Metropolitan Catholic College Sports Association (MCC) for boys and Sydney Catholic Colleges Association (SCC) for girls. If a student wishes to participate in […]

Opportunity Class

“All students regardless of race, age or gender, by virtue of their dignity as human persons, have a right to an education that is suited to their particular needs and adapted to their ability.”   Pope Paul VI Solomon Opportunity Program Inaugurated in 2011, the Solomon Opportunity Class at LaSalle Catholic College Bankstown, offers a program designed to provide academic enrichment, challenge and extension to gifted students in order that they may have greater opportunity to develop their talents. The Solomon Opportunity Class was named for Saint Solomon Leclercq fsc (a Brother martyr from C18th France)  a gifted teacher and scholar who displayed great love of mankind. The Lasallian approach to gifted education has been informed by empirical research and data and offers an extensive range of opportunities for gifted students within a pastoral Catholic environment. Our Approach The belief underlying the Solomon Opportunity Program is that academically gifted students will work more successfully toward achieving their talent potential if they are able to access a dynamic, relevant and challenging curriculum in a supportive environment with their intellectual peers. The Solomon Opportunity Program differs from the concept of ‘streaming’ in that all other learning groups in Year 7 remain as mixed-ability […]
