Message from the Board of Management
“De La Salle College, Waterford, is an all-boys Catholic school. It is a learning community where all students are valued and educated in preparation for a meaningful life”.
The purpose of this College is to give a human and Christian education to the young. Inspired by the vision of St. John Baptist De La Salle, the Lasallian school prepares young people to take a mature and productive place in society, and the church as free and responsible citizens.
De La Salle College, Waterford was founded in 1892 by the De La Salle Brothers and serves as a Catholic school for boys. The aim of De La Salle College is to develop an atmosphere of friendliness, discipline and co-operation where everyone can experience respect, encouragement and support. While every school is a community in which adults and young people live and work together, the Lasallian school is inspired by the vision of St. John Baptist De La Salle, that Gospel values must permeate the life of a Christian school in such a way that students internalise those values and reflect then in their behaviour.
All who work in the College constantly strive to make De La Salle College a welcoming institution.
Our behaviour management strategies and pastoral care structures are built on the principles of
justice and fairness. We endeavour to fulfill our mission in partnership with parents/guardians, staff,
students, trustees and the community.
