A Fun-Filled ShareLife Day

Today's ShareLife Day was a perfect way to end the week for our hard-working students and staff. The result is not always perfect, but we strive to balance the academic demands of the school with opportunities for fun-filled activities. With a day full of tasty food and a variety of exciting events, it's a positive reminder that school is also a place where staff and students can share in community-building. Before the culminating activity of the day where our very talented students took part in the annual Lasallian Idol, staff members displayed their physical prowess during the "High Heel and Flippers" relay race. Ultimately, the day emphasizes the generosity of the Del community when we are called to assist our sister school, Mount La Salle College in Naka, Nigeria.
