Why LaSalle?

LaSalle Catholic College Bankstown is a co-educational secondary College in Sydney’s growing south-west with a proud history of educational achievement. With its alumni including former Australian Prime Minister Paul Keating, the College proudly proclaims the Good News of Jesus Christ, the faith and teachings of the Catholic Church, as well as the Lasallian values of faith, service and community.

LaSalle Catholic College Bankstown is a vibrant, diverse school community which supports the learning of students from all backgrounds. The College is deeply committed to building a community which ensures that Christian values underpin all aspects of College life in an environment where the dignity and individuality of each person is highly valued.

At LaSalle, students and staff are provided with every opportunity to develop spiritually, intellectually, emotionally, culturally and socially. The College promotes initiative, a spirit of enquiry and encourages students to strive for excellence in everything that they do.

The College has recently upgraded its already high-quality facilities, is now offering an expanded and revitalized curriculum (including selective classes in Maths and English) as well as a range of curricular activities which includes opportunities for representative sport.

Ensuring that students are cared for and valued is always at the heart of everything that happens at LaSalle. Each student is provided with an adult advocate to provide him/her with support and mentorship. With the introduction of girls into Year 7 2016, a Director of Transition was appointed to ensure that our young women have a strong female leader guiding them and helping them build positive, productive relationships.  We are now in our second year of coeducational and are exploring options to move to coeducational Year 11 2018.  Expression of Interests are being sort – please see home page.

Our College strives at all times to promote confident, caring, accomplished young men and women. We have high standards, set high expectations and challenge our students to make a difference in a rapidly changing global society.

Opportunity abounds at LaSalle Catholic College Bankstown!
