1. Exercise Book Covers
Location: Heritage Centre, La Salle College
 
Here is the cover of the College Exercise Books in the 1930's, right after the opening. There are borders but no picture.
 
We now move to the 1940's. Instead of NAME we have MASTER. And this time we have a small picture, of the statue of St. La Salle.
 
Now we move to the 1950's and this time the date disappears from the cover. There is however a pretty silhouette of the College facade.
 
The modern Exercise Books are more solid and larger and feature the school badge.

2.  La Salle College Prospectus 1946
The first thing to note is the date, 1946. This Prospectus is the first then after the Second World War. It is interesting on many counts. Class One (now Form 6) was the Matriculation Class for Hong Kong University while Class Eight was the present day equivalent of Primary 5.
 
Putonghua, called Kuo Yu here, was on offer as was Translation. The reason for not re-opening the Boarding Department is given. I wonder was the hoped-for Commercial Class ever re-opened? 
 
We note also that the address of the College is given as Boundary Street.

3. Letterheads
These letterheads will give you an idea of the contrasting styles and designs in each decade. It is also interesting to note changes in address. 
 
J M J stands for Jesus, Mary and Joseph and was intended as a blessing on the recipient of the letter.
 
The letterheads today are in both black and white as well as colour.

4. First School Magazine, The Lasallite 1952
Location : Heritage Centre, La Salle College
 
Although this is the first official school magazine as such, its predecessor was called "Matric Chimes". 
 
Among other things, this first edition of The Lasallite contains fine full-page photographs of such founding stalwarts as Brother Aimar (Founder and first Principal), Brother Wilfred (Doyen of the College), Brother Patrick (Principal at the time), Brother Cassian (Assistant Principal), Brother Herman (Sports Master), Brother Martin (Prefect of Boarders) and Brother Casimir (Future Principal). There is of course a staff photo as well.
 
A photo of the Boarders indicates that there was 51 of them at that time.
 
 
 
 
5. First Speech and Prize-Giving Day Programme
Location: Heritage Centre, La Salle College
 
I wonder was this the first Speech and Prize-Giving Day of the College. According to the programme the Hon. Mr. N.L. Smith, C.M.G., presided. As far as I know, this gentleman was the Colonial Secretary before the outbreak of the Second World War.
 
It is interesting to note the shape of the school badge at the time. It is similar to the one exhibited in the Old Boys Room of the College.
 
The Programme content and names of performers may ring a bell. The programme, not surprisingly, has a distinctively colonial flavour to it. There was a King in those days!
 
This programme booklet was found attached to the diary of Brother Cassian, to whom we owe so much.

6. Advertisement For 1931 Intake
Location: Heritage Centre, La Salle College
 
It's a small piece of paper, advertisement size, but contains interesting information and was probably the first ever advertisement of its kind by the College.
 
We note the address of the school was Prince Edward Road and there was no need for a number. Day boys and Boarders were admitted on separate dates. Classes ranged from 8 (equivalent to Primary 5) to 2 (equivalent to Form 5).
 
We have no copy of the Prospectus for 1932 but do have one for 1946 under a separate heritage item.
 
The Brother Matthias referred to was Director of St. Joseph's College from 1931 to 1935. I had the pleasure of knowing him since he was one of our formators when we were starting life as Brothers.

7. LSCOBA Newsletter No. 1
Another first! This is the cover and first page of the Newsletter issued during the Presidency of Nicholas Ng Wing Fui 1982-1983.
 
Two messages of warm congratulations come from the Principals of the College and Primary, Brothers Raphael Egan and Henry Pang, respectively.
 
The Newsletter has just celebrated its 20th anniversary, is still going strong and is much appreciated by the Old Boys.

8. Memorandum and Articles of Association of La Salle College Old Boys' Association Limited
As you can see, the Old Boys' Association became a Company with limited liability as of 21st July 1978. This was during the Presidency of Dr. Chan Siu Hung, noted urologist as well as Chinese calligraphist.

9. Certificate of Honor, Charles Frankland Moore Award 1986
As you can see, the Old Boys' Association became a Company with limited liability as of 21st July 1978. This was during the Presidency of Dr. Chan Siu Hung, noted urologist as well as Chinese calligraphist.

10. The "Historique"
Location : Brothers Community, La Salle College
 
It has been the tradition of the Brothers to write a short summary of the year events in a document called the "historique". These write-ups, right from the first year of the school/community establishment, provide interesting and historically factual reading.
 
The "historique" for example gives statistics of number of Brothers, teachers and students for any given year as well as mentioning the highlights of the year.
 
To consult these documents you will have to go through the Brother Director.
