The Oaklands Community Celebrates Founder's Day

On Monday, May 15, students and staff came together to celebrate our Founder, St. John Baptiste de La Salle. In keeping with the tradition of Founder's Day the school participated in our final Holy Mass of the year in the auditorium where we reflected on the blessings we have been given throughout the year and the guidance we continue to receive from our Founder's Teachings. After Mass, the Grade 12 students (with the help of our amazing cafeteria staff) served the entire school a BBQ lunch, which we were able to enjoy outside on a beautiful spring day. We were also lucky to have two Ice Cream trucks available for dessert, which was graciously provided by the Parents' Association.

In addition to the regularly scheduled events of Founder's Day, we had the opportunity to come together as a school on the field to recreate the Lasallian Star. The five-pointed star represents the 5 Core Principles of a Lasallian: Faith in the Presence of God, Respect for All Persons, Inclusive Community, Quality Education, and Concern for the Poor and Social Justice. As you will see in the video below (and the image above), creating this "student star" was incredibly striking and shows just how powerful a united community of Lasallian Youth can be.
