“De La Salle College, Waterford, is an all-boys Catholic school.
De La Salle College, Waterford was founded in 1892 by the De La Salle Brothers and serves as a Catholic school for boys. The aim of De La Salle College is to develop an atmosphere of friendliness, discipline and co-operation where everyone can experience respect, encouragement and support. While every school is a community in which adults and young people live and work together, the Lasallian school is inspired by the vision of St. John Baptist De La Salle, that Gospel values must permeate the life of a Christian school in such a way that students internalise those values and reflect then in their behaviour. All who work in the College constantly strive to make De La Salle College a welcoming institution. Our behaviour management strategies and pastoral care structures are built on the principles of justice and fairness. We endeavour to fulfill our mission in partnership with parents/guardians, staff, students, trustees and the community.
Mission: “De La Salle College, Waterford, is an all-boys Catholic school. It is a learning community where all students are valued and educated in preparation for a meaningful life”. The purpose of this College is to give a human and Christian education to the young. Inspired by the vision of St. John Baptist De La Salle, the Lasallian school prepares young people to take a mature and productive place in society, and the church as free and responsible citizens.

Human trafficking is a scourge on contemporary society. A shocking crime where over 40 million children, women and men across the world suffer in forced labour, as domestic servants, sexually exploited, forced into criminality or for their organs. Whilst this has been a crime in Irish statute since 2008, there has yet to be a conviction and whilst cases are complex, it is accepted many still go unreported or the victims are reluctant to assist authorities.
Change is needed, not just in Ireland but globally and it is the younger generation who can influence change. With 1 in 4 victim a child, that means over 10 million suffer each day and that can no longer be be tolerated. Children exploited in agriculture, brick kilns, on fishing vessels, sexually abused or mining for cobalt to power batteries in mobile phones and computers or mica used in cosmetics. It is reported in some mines 5 children die each month to supply increasing market demand across the world, including in Ireland.
Here at home 64 cases were reported in 2018, widely accepted as a significant underestimate, which included 4 children.
On Monday 11th and Tuesday 12th November, Kevin Hyland the former UK Anti-Slavery Commissioner and Head of New Scotland Yard Human Trafficking Unit, now Ireland’s representative to the Council of Europe Trafficking Group of Experts, provided lectures to students at De La Salle College, Abbey Community College and Secondary Schools in Waterford, to increase their awareness of trafficking and importantly, exploring the role they can play in preventing this serious human rights abuse.
Areas covered included understanding the difference between smuggling and trafficking, the life of a victim, the Sustainable Development Goals, the role of communities and what is required of government, multilateral bodies such as the EU and UN and private business.
Press, local officials and politicians were also in attendance.
Particular reference was made to Frederick Douglass who came to Ireland in 1845 and spoke in Waterford having escaped slavery in Maryland, Virginia. He was later to be appointed the State Marshall of Washington DC.
The title of the lectures was ‘Facta Non Verba’ – ‘Action not Words.’
16 German students in 5th and 6th year travelled to Cologne with their teachers for 5 days at the end of October. They visited Michael Schumacher’s private memorabilia collection in Motorworld, the Lindt Chocolate Museum, the Sport and Olympics museum where they played football on the roof top pitch overlooking the river Rhein. A trip to the former Gestapo headquarters was a poignant reminder of the city’s history. A particular highlight was a tour of the FC Köln football stadium with the rather unusual club mascot Hennes the goat who lives in the Cologne Zoo and attends all of the club’s home fixtures! It was a fantastic opportunity to practice their language skills and experience German culture.

The Perpetual Frank O'Callaghan Cup was held in De La Salle College Friday 4th October. The cup was in memory of the late Frank O' Callaghan who gave 42 years of his life to De La Salle College. Frank loved hurling and managed many a Harty and Dean Ryan Cup team. A proud Cork and North Mon man, he passed away last January 2018. To honour his memory we held this primary school blitz in the college grounds. Piltown N.S. won the cup and Ballyduff N.S. won the shield but the winner was hurling. Every child went home with plenty of game time and I know Frank watched every stroke and score today and he would have been very proud. We were delighted that his wife, Alma was there to present the trophies. A big thanks to everyone who participated and we look forward to seeing you all next year for the second year.
Well done to Ballyduff NS shield winners in the Frank O Callaghan primary school blitz today.

F1 in Schools is an international STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) competition
for school children (aged 9–19), in which groups of 3–6 students have to design and manufacture a
miniature car out of the official F1 Model Block using CAD/CAM design tools. The cars are powered
by CO2 cartridges and are attached to a track by a nylon wire. They are timed from the moment they
are launched to when they pass the finish line by a computer.
De La Salle College would like to wish the team and their lead teacher Andrias O’Brien the very best
of luck at the finals.
