Dear Alumni & Fellow Lasallians,
The De La Salle Alumni Association plays an integral role of connecting past students to our alma mater and remains a pillar of pride and strength. We are here to help our alumni connect with each other and in doing so, our connection to De La Salle School will continue to remain strong.
Our Alumni Association is almost 6 years old and we remain focus on growing our membership and building connections and bridges. We look forward to connecting with our fellow alumni on the basis of their interests through our affiliation efforts and to foster their connections with De La Salle as well as with each other. In saying so, we are planning to bring the Alumni together through activities where we are able to connect, mingle and share our lives in line with the Lasallian spirit. It is my hope that more Lasallians can join us in our journey – where old friends gather and new friendships forged – to bring our alma mater to new heights. We will continue to make efforts to strengthen active network among alumni, school staff and students.
Since its founding days back in 1952 at Kampong Bahru Road, De La Salle School has produced men and women of faith, integrity, and scholarship, in a school community that encourages the practice of service to others. Our roots extend more than 300 years to 17th century France and our Founder, Saint John Baptist de La Salle, who had a very simple vision of education: that the graduates of his Christian schools would be mature, responsible members of society and the Church.
In the spirit and tradition of St. John Baptist de La Salle’s ideals of faith, service, and community, we hold dear the five core principles of Lasallian Schools
- Faith in the Presence of God
- Concern for the Poor and Social Justice
- Quality Education
- Respect for All Persons
- Inclusive Community
Those of us who were fortunate to have studied at De La Salle can take pride knowing that our alma mater is part of a larger Lasallian family of education establishments, formed by about 4,000 Brothers, who together with 90,000 men and women teachers and numerous other Lay associates help run over 1,500 Lasallian educational institutions in 82 countries with over 900,000 students, children, youth and even adults.
The Alumni Association’s Committee Members and I are excited about the school’s future and its students and what it holds for us to partner, strengthen and grow our Alumni Association. If you are an ex-student, please join us to help and shape the Association’s future. There will be opportunities to support, to volunteer and to participate.
I encourage you to learn as you grow and be part of the De La Salle Alumni Association.

I look forward to welcoming you and hope that you will find your way back to De La Salle.

DLSAA HELPS OUT IN SCHOOL FUND-RAISER
DLSS's Funtastic Fiesta 2015 Fund-Raiser
De La Salle School had its food and funfare, FUNTASTIC FIESTA 2015, on Saturday, 31 January 2015 at the school's premises at Choa Chu Kang.
The alumni association did its part by helping to man one of the games stalls. The association also took the opportunity to raise some funds for its own activities by selling mainly toys at its flea market stall.
The event was graced by Guest-of-Honour, Mr Alex Yam, who is the MP for Choa Chu Kang GRC. He was accompanied by Principal, Mrs Sing, VPs, Mr Chan and Mr Ching, Chairman of the SMC, Mr Kuo, and President of the DLSAA, Mr Bangras, as they sat through some wonderful dance performances and viewed the various stalls during a walkabout later on.
Mr Yam greeted visitors, parents and children alike with his trademark smile and friendly banter. Here are some pictures of the performances, his walkabout and pictures of our alumni volunteers manning the stalls
THE INAUGURAL LASALLE INTER-ALUMNI FUTSAL TOURNAMENT 2015
This tournament is probably one of the first, if not the first activity that brought together the old boys of all the CBS primary schools in friendly competition. Even though we are all from different schools there was an uncanny familiarity and bond that was palpable throughout the tournament - the LaSallian spirit.
The competition was stiff and fierce at times, as was expected but in the end the LaSallian sense of true sportsmanship prevailed and all the old boys were thankful that they were able to partake of this event and renew old ties.
For the DLSAA - we were mainly represented by a group of old boys from the 1983 DLSS batch. Most of them went on to SJI and graduated from there in 1987. They are Allan Toh, Jeffrey Ng, Bernard Chia, Louis Nathan, Francis Selvan, Edmund Ng, Wai Keong and Niklas Leong. I applaud your competitive spirit and your eagerness to play for your alma mater.
We played a fantastic 1st match against SAB and won by a big margin, 6-2. Took the foot off the pedal in the 2nd match and got punished by SSS 2-1. The final match against the tournament favourites, SMSAA, we lost 4-2 as fatigue and injuries put paid to any chances of winning the tournament. Overall the DLSAA team gave a good account of themselves and have a solid base on which to build on from.
Thanks to SMSAA (St Mike's) for taking the lead role in organising this tournament. They provided the venue, drinks, the St Michael's Challenge Shield and the medals, which was a surprise. Everyone who participated got a medal, a nice touch to end off the tournament in true LaSallian spirit.
Check out the photos and the videos on our FB page .The SAB players are in blue jerseys, SMSAA in red and DLSAA in green. Cheers!
