1. The Garden
As you leave the school for La Salle Road, you cannot but notice the garden or quad. Over the years it has changed its appearance as new formats were introduced.
 
In any case we hope this little oasis of peace will send you on your way with a peaceful heart. Shalom!

2. Back Entrance / Exit
The back exit of the school is a convenient short cut to Kowloon City. The steps leading up to Nga Chin Wai Road are pretty steep.
 
Atop the gate is a flaming torch, preserved from the old school. It is a smaller version of the one gracing the garden. 

3. Spider Trees
Many of the trees planted along La Salle Road belong to the species called CRATEVA UNILOCULARIS, Spider tree in English and 樹頭菜 in Chinese. These trees, especially when in full bloom, are a welcome, refreshing sight.
 
But there is one Spider tree that has caused heated discussion, at least among some of the Brothers. Here it is, blocking half the entrance to or exit from the school.
 
Should it be removed for the sake of convenience or should we leave a thing of beauty untouched?
 
 
4. La Salle School Song

ENGLISH VERSION:
1. Boys of courage, boys of daring,
Full of manliness and will;
Spirit nought for danger caring,
Hearts to conquer every ill.
Chorus We are sons of La Salle everyone,
and no matter where we go,
High aloft her flag we will hold,
and strive that her fame may grow.
2. There are famous schools in plenty,
With their heroes by the score,
And they flourish high and mighty,
But La Salle is something more.
3. From her lofty station pointing,
To the sky's majestic dome,
She would have us ever minding,
That above is our true home.
4. Come whatever kind of weather,
Come the stormy days along;
When the old boys get together,
They will always sing this song.

CHINESE VERSION (黃霑先生譯詞):
1. 豪情少年敢為敢作
一身朝氣心向上
人行正途艱危不怕
我會盡心全力幹
重唱: 有幸做好喇沙書院友
重遇我往昔同窗
不管天陰天晴日
我地齊聲將此曲唱
2. 云云教壇書堂精舍
各有當世好印象
唯從有成英雄榜看
母校突出人共仰
3. 抬頭對長空求指引
放眼高闊天際望
昂昂志朝彩雲深處
與母校青雲共上
4. 同門友誼因時俱進
當天歡笑不變樣
良朋滿堂欣然相對
母校校歌來合唱
 


According to Brother Herman Fenton, the oldest living De La Salle Brother in Hong Kong, (aged 91 at time of writing), the lyrics of our School Song were written by Brother Marcian who was Principal of St. Joseph's College 1921 'V 1922 and also Principal of a number of LaSallian schools in Malaysia. The melody, a French martial air, was supplied by Brother Cassian Brigant, Principal of La Salle College 1946 'V 1947. The School Song is beloved by generations of LaSallians and "when the old boys get together they will always sing this song". The song reminds us to strive to realise our full potential on earth while not forgetting that "above is our true home". The tune is catchy and stirring, rousing the sons of La Salle to indeed be "something more".
