"It is a great privilege to be given the role of Youth Minister at LaSalle Catholic College for 2013 and I am very excited with the challenges and experiences that will arise with undertaking this important role. Being a former student of the College makes me feel very comfortable and especially motivated to make a positive impact as Youth Minister upon such a great College Community. This year is a year of action and I am therefore excited to help contribute to the life of the College community to the best of my ability." Dimitrios Kazanis
