The La Salle Higher Secondary School, Multan is a missionary and an English-language private school in Multan, Punjab, Pakistan. Built in 1960, it is one of the oldest educational institutions in Multan, and in the country.

History[edit]

In the 1940s Bishop F.B Cialeo, OP, first Bishop of Multan requested the La Salle Brothers to run this school in Multan.

The La Salle High School Multan is one of the missionary institutions that were initiated by Sir John Baptist De La Salle (the founder of the La Sallian community).

Rev. Bro. Lawrence Manuel was the longest serving principal of La Salle Higher Secondary School, Multan, i.e. from 1986 to 2007. The current principal is Bro. Zafar Daud.

The principal of the school said that Christian educational institutions have contributed a lot in nurturing the country's leadership. He was responding to Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif's 9 June 2008 promise to make Punjab a 100 percent literate province by 2010.[1]

The school's most prominent alumnus is Yousaf Raza Gilani, ex-prime minister of Pakistan.[2] Brother Emmanuel Nicholas who taught Gilani in the 1960s, was reunited with his student during a South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation meeting in Colombo in March 2008. In 2011, he recommended to the President of Pakistan that Bro. Emmanuel be given the Tamgha-i-Pakistan (Medal of Pakistan) for services he had rendered towards the uplift of the poor in Pakistan. The medal was awarded to him on 23 March 2012, at the Pakistan High Commission in Colombo.[3]

School Anthem[edit]

Chorus :

LaSalle our Alma Mater dear,
We greet thee with a loyal cheer,
And raise aloft in the azure sky,
The blue and gold of LaSalle high.
With thee our mentor, thee our guide,
Let's beat a path in earnest stride,
To drink deep draughts and wisdoms's sprin,
The glorious strife of life to win.
Loyal sons of the LaSallian fold,
We pledge thine honour to uphold,
And 'neath thy rule with youthful zeal,
In joy we'll shoulder duty's wheel.
If truth's bright beacon light our way,
From virtue's path we'll never stray,
For cause of right we'll ever stand,
Yea true to God and Fatherland.

Words & Music by : Rev. Bro. Marcus
