Mission of Lasallian Schools

The Mission of the School of the Christian Brothers of St John Baptist De La Salle is to form a community where teachers and Anthonians can live their faith and become the persons that God wants them to be.

The School Community

WE BELIEVE that the love of Christ binds us together as children of God, for all are made in God’s image and members of His family. On this faith rests the mutual love and respect that is fostered between teachers and Anthonians in our school. WE BELIEVE that the Brothers and their lay colleagues give testimony to the Providence and Presence of God as they educate the young in the tradition of St John Baptist De La Salle, giving attention to all and especially to pupils whose development is hindered by economic, personal and other problems.

Learning and Living the Faith

WE BELIEVE that the learning of religious truth is fundamental to education in our schools. WE BELIEVE that religious development is not isolated from development of the mind and conscience, nor from the development of the body. Logic and analysis, honesty and teamwork in games, all provide a sound foundation for understanding religion and living by one’s beliefs. WE BELIEVE that our schools must teach what is true, just, good and beautiful, guided by our Catholic philosophy which finds harmony, not contradiction, in spirit and matter, in faith and reason.

Life-Long Growth

WE BELIEVE that, like parents, teachers labour to form the minds and character of Anthonians and become transformed in the process, as teachers and Anthonians help each other grow as persons. WE BELIEVE that Anthonians must learn how to learn as they need to teach themselves after leaving school.

Success

WE BELIEVE that success in school means more than good examinations results. It means learning how to live as well as how to make a living.
 
OUR MISSION IS FULFILLED when our Anthonians

  • Understand and accept themselves and others,
  • Develop their talents in service to society,
  • Think logically and critically, and express themselves effectively,
  • Know clearly what they believe in and why they believe,
  • Believe and trust in Jesus Christ as their personal Saviour,
  • Maintain physical fitness and mental health, avoiding excesses and abuses,
  • Possess social awareness and a responsibility for the common goal.
 

Signum Fidei

The present logo of the Brothers is a five-pointed and radiant star. This reminds us of the star of Bethlehem which led the Wise Men of the East to Christ. For these Magi, it was a sign of their faith. In fact, Signum Fidei is the motto of the Brothers. The Star is to the Brothers a symbol of their faith as Christians and their inspiration. It reminds them to reach always for the reachable star of their convictions and ideals. Through the centuries, the star of the Brothers has been depicted in various ways according to prevailing design trends.
