Promise and Hope of a New Year

We welcome our De La Salle community back and with the promise and hope of a new year comes the excitement of new activities on the horizon. Though the Christmas break served to help us all relax and recharge, we quickly witnessed the "return to school" vigor emerge within the hallways. The faculty and students are fueling their energy on the necessary preparations for examinations and although this is a very busy time, it is pleasing to see how our community is coming together to support one another with review sessions and by offering some helpful hints about managing this preparation time.
