Brother Martin Borg fsc

In 1903 the Brothers of the Christian Schools, founded by St John Baptist de la Salle, opened their first school in Malta in Strada Buongiorno, Cospicua.

Throughout the twentieth century, the original school grew and changed, adapting to the needs of the times and facing the challenges of the historic upheavals that marked the 1900s. Throughout it all, De La Salle College never lost sight of the main objective that inspired the founder nearly three hundred years earlier, that is to help students develop as persons in all aspects of their life.

De La Salle College is first and foremost a Catholic School. Many among the serving clergy and in religious life received their first formation at the College. However, throughout its history, it has also educated children brought up in other religions.

At the same time it successfully prepared students for taking the entry examinations into the Lyceum, H.M. Dockyard, Oxford and London GCEs, City and Guilds, and, in more recent years, SEC, MATSEC, OCR and CIE exams. With the introduction of Sixth Form studies, the College has seen many of its former students going on to Tertiary Education at the Malta University as well as other Colleges of Higher education both locally and abroad.

De La Salle College established a name for itself in the field of sports and physical education. Many former students went on to represent their country in football, water-polo, athletics, tennis, squash, badminton, basketball, sailing and others. In inter-college sports, De La Salle is always prominent. It is worth recording that the College built the first full-size sports hall in Malta, which became the venue for various associations to hold their national competitions. Outside playing fields to cater for various disciplines form an integral part of the school premises.

 De La Salle College was also a pioneer in computer and IT education. Today it boasts one of the most extensive educational programmes in this field.

The College hosts many activities not only for staff and students but also for former students, parents, parishes, clubs and other associations. This website is intended to give an insight into life at De La Salle College. Further information can be obtained from the school secretary.
