Gathering of La Sallians to build network of former students

PETALING JAYA: To all ex-La Sallians out there, your alma mater is asking you to respond to her call.

Malaysian Federation of La Sallian Associations (MFOLSA) president Tan Sri Dr Augustine Ong said the organisation is taking its first step to build a network of former students, said to number in the hundreds of thousands, through a convention next month.

The convention, The La Sallian Commitment to Transformative Education in Asia: Sharing Experiences and Drawing Insights, will be held at the Equatorial Hotel in Malacca on March 20.
“This will be a great opportunity to gather La Sallians for fellowship and friendship, and to strengthen our associations in faith, hope and mission,” said Ong.

The La Sallian convention will also see participants from six countries – Japan, Hong Kong, Thailand, Singapore, the Philippines and Australia.

“The convention will help the La Sallian community that was brought up with noble values by the brothers to forge closer ties,” he added.
The oldest “old boy” expected at the convention is former principal Brother Datuk Michael Jacques who, after graduating, joined the La Salle Order in 1935 at the age of 19.
