"From the first time we visited Del we knew it was a special School. The constant dedication from all of its staff as well as parental support makes Del unique. We feel honoured for being part of the Del family, and are most certain our son is not only receiving an extraordinary education but Del is also teaching him the life skills he needs to become a confident and responsible young adult." -Ana Beltran and Thomas Berger, Parents
De La Salle College is committed to the Lasallian practice of educating the whole student: mentally, spiritually and physically. In order to do this, the dedicated staff at the College work hard to create and coordinate a large variety of extra-curricular activities for our students to participate in throughout the school year, such as Theatre De La Salle, debate, robotics, yearbook and newspaper. The clubs and activities offered allow students the opportunity to foster leadership qualities, enhance personal development and create lifelong friendships with their peers in a positive and exciting environment.
Over and above the fostering of leadership qualities at school, various other extra-curricular activities are encouraged, such as participation in student council, House Leaders, the Cadet Corps, and Link Crew. These leadership opportunities are intended to help students develop skills in stewardship, team-building and an awareness of the needs of the last, the least and the lost in our society.
In addition to the clubs & activities available, there is a strong focus on Lasallian life while keeping with the school’s motto: ‘Enter to Learn. Leave to Serve.’ The College’s commitment to serving the local and global communities goes beyond the classroom with programs such as the Lasallian Youth Team, which allows students to run fundraising initiatives and participate in hands on service with local parishes, food banks and soup kitchens.

"Outside the classroom provides even more experiences that enrich student life. One spring, the arts department was approached to paint a mural on a fence along a nearby church. In the end, a group of our Gr. 10 students dedicated themselves after school to this large and colourful project featuring Noah's Ark complete with animals. It still stands today as a testament to our students' dedication and creativity." -Mr. Lue Tam, Coordinator of the Arts Department
De La Salle College House System
The House System brings together students of different ages and grade levels to participate in many school activities and events and promotes the values of community, fraternity and responsible leadership. Each student is assigned to one of the six houses that make up the House System. These houses are dedicated in honour of six De La Salle Brothers who made an extraordinary contribution to the life of the College.
