La Salle School, Brickfields, Kuala Lumpur

I was present at the creation. No, not THAT big one but a more modest one: the creation of La Salle Brickfields (LSB), K.L.

I was born and grew up in the fifth house in the first block of houses in Rozario Street (“Hundred Quarters”), a stone’s throw from LSB. Directly in front of my house was the Vivekananda Ashram. To the left, about 50 metres away was the Gajjan Singh petrol station along then Brickfields Road. To the right at the end of Rozario Street and the beginning of then Temple Road was the Lutheran Church.

Brother Visitor’s Visit 2018

Today, the sight of a Lasallian brother walking the corridors of a La Salle school in his white robe is a rarity. It has been 9 years since the retirement of the last Lasallian Brother Director, Bro. Paul Ho, from St. Xavier’s Institution in Penang. Ironically, St. Xavier’s Institution is the first school established by the Lasallian Brothers in 1852. And it has been 2 years since the retirement of the last Lasallian Brother teacher, Bro. Michael Kum, from St. Francis Institution, Malacca.

Many young Lasallians today, not only have not seen a Brother in his robe but are unaware of who the Lasallian Brothers are or their contributions to the very school they are studying in, or the significant contributions the Brothers have made to Malaysian education.

This will change. The Brother visitor, will be making a tour off all the La Salle schools in Peninsular Malaysia, starting with the Klang Valley schools in May 2018, the Southern Schools in June 2018 and the Northern Schools in July 2018.

Brother Visitor will be visiting La Salle Schools on the following dates:

2 May 2018 – St. John’s Institution/La Salle Brickfields/La Salle Sentul
3 May 2018 – La Salle Petaling Jaya/La Salle Klang
27 June 2018 – St. Andrew’s Muar/St. Francis’ Institution Melaka
28 June 2018 – St. Paul’s Institution Seremban
For month of June and July, we are awaiting confirmation of dates from Brother Visitor.

Who is the Brother Visitor?

Towards reviving the sporting excellence among La Sallian schools


The Inter La Salle Games was an annual sports programme involving the La Salle schools inthe Klang Valley during the 1970s through to the late 1980s. The programme was stagedprimarily to nurture and identify young talents that can be recruited for the respectiveschool’s mainstream Under-15 and Under-18 teams that participated in the district andstate level tournaments. The Games were limited by age group to Under-14 – hence aneffective feeder programme.
