LaSalle Catholic College is a Systemic Catholic School for boys from Years 7 to 12 in the tradition of St John Baptist de la Salle. The College opened in 1999 and is located in Sydney's Western Suburb of Bankstown.
A LaSalle education is a journey that draws its inspiration from the spirituality and educational principles of our founder, St John Baptist de la Salle. It is one of the many schools throughout the world under the care of the Religious Institute known as the Brothers of the Christian Schools or De La Salle Brothers.
A Lasallian education seeks to recapture, in contemporary ways, the original spirit of St John Baptist de la Salle's first schools in Reims, France. Hence, LaSalle Catholic College endeavours to touch hearts by developing the dignity and well-being of each of our students, teach minds through the educational programmes it offers and transform lives.
Our boys are accompanied on their journey by competent professional educators, who offer a myriad of academic, spiritual, social, cultural and sporting opportunities to enable our students to develop their gifts and talents, achieve personal excellence and prepare for the future with hope and confidence.

Bankstown's Catholic population grew strongly after World War II. By 1950 the Josephite school in northern Bankstown had over 600 pupils and so the parish priest, Fr Lawrence Corridon, and the Sisters of St Joseph cooperated to start a new school in Cambridge Avenue, Central Bankstown. St Brendan's opened on 13 May 1952, with 52 pupils in Kindergarten.
In 1953 the parish of St Brendan's Central Bankstown was established, with Fr Wilfred Paine as Parish Priest. St Brendan's was a primary school for girls from Kindergarten to Sixth Class and for boys to Third Class and then on to De La Salle to complete their Primary education. St Brendan's is a Systemic School belonging to the Archdiocese of Sydney.
In 1990, Mrs Margaret Di Salvio, after being appointed as Principal by the Catholic Education Office, took over administration of the school from the Sisters of St Joseph of the Sacred Heart. The school, having a high proportion of migrant children was classified as disadvantaged, which attracted funding under the Disadvantaged Schools Programs. Many families were refugees, who were from Europe after World War II, from Lebanon in the 1970's and from Vietnam in the 1980's. Programs were introduced to cater for the resulting multicultural mix: a New Arrivals Program, English as a Second Language, and a Vietnamese Bilingual Program.
The education at St. Euphemia College caters for the educational, spiritual, linguistic and cultural needs of our students from Kindergarten to Year 12.
