St Michael’s College, Adelaide
The only partner of the Lasallian Foundation in South Australia is St Michael’s College. The College is an independent Lasallian Catholic K-12 co-educational school located on two campuses in the western suburbs of Adelaide, namely Henley Beach and Beverley. The Henley Beach campus caters for students in Years 7-12 and the Beverley campus caters for students in Years R-6. The College was founded as a boys-only school in 1954, but in 1972 began admitting girls to senior classes. During subsequent decades there was a gradual transition to co-education at all levels. The College currently has an enrolment of over 1700 students.
The staff and students of St Michael’s College donated $50,000 to the Lasallian Foundation from fund-raising activities in 2019. The funds were directed to projects at Albans Academy in Multan, Pakistan. Fund-raising activities were not undertaken in 2020 due to restrictions linked with the coronavirus pandemic.
In 2021, St Michael’s College was able to fundraise an incredible $60,000 and the Lasallian Foundation sincerely thanks the staff, parents and students who generously donated. The funds were directly forwarded to the school community of Albans Academy in Multan for purchases of basic classroom equipment and resources. Whilst a significant amount was also transferred to La Salle Technical College Hohola to purchase much needed text books for Year 10 students.
