21 September was the International Day for Peace which marks the beginning of the Lasallian International Days for Peace (September 21 to October 21, 2021) with the theme: Rise Together for Peace. It is a month long global initiative that is run by #LasallianYouth. At noon we joined Lasallians in Kenya, Ethiopia, Mozambique, South Africa, and Nigeria virtually to pray for peace. Great things happen when we come together. Let us continue to pray for peace in our schools, communities, countries and for the world.

On 17 September, 28 De La Salle Holy Cross College pupils joined 12 Parish Candidates to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation. The Sacrament was administered by Fr Tony Daniels, assisted by Fr Emmanuel Mosoeu, Fr Grant Tungay (a past Head Boy of the College) and Deacon Patrick de la Roche. Due to Covid restrictions attendance was limited so the ceremony was live streamed for family and friends. We thank everyone who contributed to the success of this special and meaningful occasion. Congratulations and blessings to all the candidates.

The National Development Plan 2030 (NDP) aims to ensure that all South Africans attain a decent standard of living through the elimination of poverty and the reduction of inequality.
In our interdependent world, the development of skills and competencies that serve local and global challenges is essential.
The IEB wants young learners across South African schools to see themselves as people who can solve big problems – and help them understand that they have an active role to play in achieving the NDP Goals by 2030.
Collaborative Problem Solving skills which combine the capacities of collaboration, problem solving, critical thinking and communication are invaluable for our young future leaders as they embrace the Fourth Industrial Revolution

Hail Holy Cross, our only hope.
