Destination… Kintbury and London

DESTINATION… KINTBURY & LONDON

 
On Friday 26th June 2015 a team of 3 teachers and 7 students who will be in Form 5 soon, embarked on an innovative experience where, along with thirteen other students from De La Salle College, met around 100 other students from the UK Lasallian family in Kintbury, England.

Kintbury is the hometown of St. Cassian’s Centre, a place funded and owned by the Brothers of De La Salle. Our students have camped in the garden grounds of St. Cassian’s, where they interacted with other students from Lasallian schools across the UK, while taking part in various activities including archery, human table soccer and wall climbing, among other activities.

The group also went for long walks in the beautiful countryside surrounding St. Cassian’s and the village of Kintbury. Each individual was encouraged to live in the now throughout the weekend, which came to an end on Sunday 28th June 2015. 
 
Following this camp, the group travelled to London. The boys have visited the London Dungeons, Buckingham Palace, the Tower of London, Covent Garden, St. James Park, Hyde Park, Kensington Gardens, the Big Ben, 10 Downing Street as well as a short trip to Oxford Street.

This unique experience has surely made these boys aware that our College is one of many schools which embraces the same principles and mission statement, namely that of living in the now and taking time to reflect on their lives with Christ as their Guide and St John Baptist de la Salle as their inspiration.
