We recommend that parents consider the following points regarding their son's enrolment at De La Salle Catholic College Ashfield:
Is the situation at home conducive to study?
Is there somewhere well-lit and reasonably quiet where he can do his homework?
Can you allow your son conditions to study for 1½ hours each night?
Is your family prepared to actively support the College’s pursuit of a Catholic Education? Please note that we enjoy a real partnership between the College and home in the total education of our students. This obviously involves more than just academic development and seeks to promote a student’s social, physical and spiritual growth as well.
Are you willing to become involved in the life of the College community through your support of the various groups and committees (e.g. Parents & Friends Association)?
Are you prepared to support and challenge your son to achieve his full potential as a student through your attendance at Parent/Teacher evenings and keeping yourself informed of his study/homework commitments?
Will you act to prevent your son becoming over-burdened with outside commitments, such as team sports?
Will you regularly check that your son maintains a high standard of attendance and punctuality and completes assignments and homework? All absences must be notified to the office before 9.00am each day.
