Macbeth & co – La Salle Congrés

On Monday 30th of January, us, 1st of batxillerat students, went to the theatre. We went to see an adaptation of the renowned play called Macbeth, written by the well known English poet, actor and playwright William Shakespeare. The play was pretty entertaining and amusing, simplified from the entangled plot of the original one, and based on nowadays society. The actors did an amazing job too, which made it even easier to follow and understand. It was a great experience to learn in a creative and more fun way

Ecumenical Celebration during the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity, Tehnological High School Sfântul Ioan de La Salle – Pildesti, Romania

The love of Christ asks us to pray, but aslo requires us to go beyond the mere Prayer for Christian Unity. Communities and churches need the gift of reconciliation with God who is the source of life. But they need above all to bear witness together to the world: “May they all be one; as thou, Father, art in me and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me. “(Jn 17:21).
The world needs apostles of reconciliation to remove barriers, build bridges, bring peace and open the way for new forms of living in the name of Jesus Christ who reconciled us with God. The Holy Spirit guides us to the path of reconciliation on his behalf.
Monday, January 23, our school organized an ecumenical celebration attended by the entire educational community.

There were together in prayer with us parish priests: Ciobanica Andrei parish priest of Pildeşti community and priest Liviu Lupu, vicar of the Orthodox community in the neighboring village, Gherăeşti. The theme chosen this year for the Week of prayer was entitled Reconciliation – the love of Christ compels us (cf. 2 Cor 5.14 to 20) and the texts used in the celebration were developed by the Council of Christian Churches from Germany (ACK). This theme celebrates reconciliation, which is offered through an irrevocable manner by our faith in Jesus Christ. The love for Christ is the moving force that helps us overcome the divisions between us and pushes us towards acts of reconciliation.


During the celebration there were two symbolic actions: a first action was to build a wall (with reference to the Berlin Wall), which symbolized our sins and the division recogniyed by Christians. After the sermon this wall was turned into a cross. The second action was the symbolic lighting of 12 candles by 12 people. By doing that, all the present persons were invited to be Christ’s ambassadors and carry this light into the world, into the dark places where conflict, discord and divisions of all kind are a common obstacle to their testimony.

Concours d’éloquence des Secondes : la lune à l’honneur

« Doit-on décrocher la lune ? »

Pour parler d’un aussi joli sujet, il était de mise de briller…

Nous n’avons pas été déçus, nos élèves ont été à la hauteur !

Lors de ce concours organisé par Mesdames Aubertin, Biou et de Quenetain, nos élèves Matthieu, Tessa, Héloïse et Camille nous ont impressionnés et charmés par leur aisance, leur charisme, leur poésie, leur humour, leur sincérité, leur enthousiasme. Citant tour à tour Mallarmé, Camus, Hugo ou même Walt Disney et Mohamed Ali, prenant pour exemple les frères Whrigt ou Neil Armstrong, nos orateurs en herbe ont trouvé mille raisons de vouloir décrocher – ou non ! – cette fameuse lune, en utilisant astucieusement les arguments les plus imagés comme les plus scientifiques, devant un public de professeurs et lycéens conquis !

Ils nous ont parlé d’amour, de foi, de courage, d’innocence, de déception aussi, avec une force et une lucidité étonnantes pour leur jeune âge.

Nous pouvons également saluer leur aplomb, lorsqu’il a fallu insérer le plus naturellement du monde dans leur prise de parole le mot incongru qu’ils avaient pioché ! Citons ainsi Héloïse, qui a probablement hérité du plus improbable : « …tout comme il est incongru de citer le mot « patate » dans un tel discours ! »

Remercions-les pour ce joli moment qu’ils nous ont offert. Félicitation à Tessa, qui a remporté le concours.

Aucun doute, en visant la lune, ces jeunes gens finiront au moins dans les étoiles !

Italia – Una Chiamata, Molte Voci: News dal Tavolo di Pastorale e Volontariato

Condividiamo la testimonianza del Professor Andrea Testa sull’esperienza congiunta di volontariato dei ragazzi di due scuole di Roma – Villa Flaminia e San Giuseppe De Merode – che settimanalmente si impegnano nel sostenere bambini in difficoltà negli studi.

“Vivo per il quarto anno l’esperienza cristiana, lasalliana, educativa del doposcuola La Salle per assistere nello studio pomeridiano i figli degli immigrati. Usufruiamo degli ambienti della mensa dei poveri dell’istituto Villa Flaminia. Sono spettatore innamorato degli alunni della mia scuola, il S. Giuseppe De Merode, che dedicano tempo e conoscenze personali su vari argomenti affiancando allievi stranieri (perlopiù sudamericani) di poco più piccoli d’età. Il fondatore ha ispirato me e altri colleghi, anche dell’istituto Villa Flaminia, in questo servizio gratuito agli ultimi.

È bello e spiritualmente gratificante vedere e sperimentare la collaborazione tra docenti e studenti lasalliani di più scuole per una comune finalità di servizio cristiano”.
