"Ardscoil La Salle is a small school in Dublin with a big heart. The school is nearly 50 years old but is still filled with energy and life. One thing about our school though is that what we lack in size we make up for in our wide range of talents. We are a school of innovators whose motivated attitudes and passion will take us far. It has kept up with the times yet held onto the values first set in place by the Lasallian brothers. In Ardscoil La Salle the Lasallian Family encompasses many different and unique people with different backgrounds and life stories. We wanted to create a project to celebrate all the other places where the Lasallian Family has schools as well as the places where we should be trying to help. That is why we decided to create a project that really utilized our strengths which is within the arts as well as our inquisitive nature. For one of our projects we decided that we would create a family of our own to represent the places where the Lasallian family are from and have a large impact. Our projects hope to show the unity of all members within the family through our shared connection to the founder Saint John Baptiste De La Salle, for without him we would not be able to have taken part in so many wonderful things and have so many amazing opportunities. Within our school we receive not only a high quality education but also are placed within an environment that nurtures our unique gifts and talents. As such we decided to put our best into our work to give thanks not only to John Baptise De La Salle but also to show our appreciation as well as our respect for the family we are a part of."
