Brother Saints and St Benild

Grade 3 Miguel presented an assembly about Brother Saints. The boys related and acted out highlights from the life of St Benild and St Mutien Marie who like their Founder St John Baptist De La Salle were teachers with a strong Christian faith. These Saints led an exemplary life by ‘doing common things in an uncommon way.’  The highlight of the assembly was when all the boys joined in to sing the One La Salle Anthem.
