La Sallian (secondary school)
La Salle School, Klang, is a school in Klang, Selangor in Malaysia. The school is one of the oldest schools in Klang, after Anglo Chinese School, Klang and Convent School Klang. It was established in 1940 for boys and was once a Christian missionary school. Its enrollment today, however, consists of male students of all races regardless of their religions.
It is divided into primary school and secondary school. The primary and secondary schools initially functioned together until the increase in enrollment of students, causing separation in 1964. Both primary and secondary schools are formally known today as Sekolah Kebangsaan La Salle Klang and Sekolah Menengah Kebangsaan La Salle Klang.
The La Sallian Heritage
John Baptist de La Salle was born into a world very different from our own. He was the first son of wealthy parents living in France over 300 years ago. Born at Reims, John Baptist de La Salle received the tonsure at age eleven and was named Canon of the Reims Cathedral at sixteen.
Though he had to assume the administration of family affairs after his parents died, he completed his theological studies and was ordained a priest on April 9, 1678. Two years later he received a doctorate in theology. Meanwhile he became tentatively involved with a group of rough and barely literate young men in order to establish schools for poor boys.
At that time a few people lived in luxury, but most of the people were extremely poor: peasants in the country, and slum dwellers in the towns. Only, a few could send their children to school; most children had little hope for the future. Moved by the plight of the poor who seemed so "far from salvation" either in this world or the next, he determined to put his own talents and advanced education at the service of the children "often left to themselves and badly brought up." To be more effective, he abandoned his family home, moved in with the teachers, renounced his position as Canon and his wealth, and so formed the community that became known as the Brothers. Worn out by austerities and exhausting labours, he died at Saint Yon near Rouen early in 1719 on Good Friday, only weeks before his sixty-eighth birthday.
John Baptist de La Salle was a pioneer in founding training colleges for teachers, reform schools for delinquents, technical schools, and secondary schools for modern languages, arts, and sciences. His work quickly spread through France and, after his death, continued to spread across the globe. John Baptist de La Salle inspired others how to teach and care for young people, how to meet failure and frailty with compassion, how to affirm, strengthen and heal. At the present time there are De La Salle schools in 80 different countries around the globe. One of them is none other than La Salle School, Klang.
La Salle School, Klang was establish in 1940 by Reverend Father L. Guittart, who was also the first principal of the school. When it was first established, it was originally known as the St. Bernadette School. Its name was later change to La Salle Institution in 1950. Then again in 1952, the name of the school was changed to La Salle School Klang.
Later in 1964, La Salle School Klang was divided into La Salle Primary School and La Salle Secondary School. Despite that, the two schools still share the same location till today.
Today, under the national education system, La Salle Primary School and La Salle Secondary School are officially known in Malay as Sekolah Kebangsaan La Salle Klang and Sekolah Menengah Kebangsaan La Salle Klang respectively.
La Salle School, Klang is affiliated to hundreds of other La Sallian Educational Institutions in 80 countries around the world.

The Secondary School
All through our classes a voice is resounding,
Promptly respond to your duty's sweet call.
Hearken you all for the trumpet is sounding,
Your Mater's proclaiming her watchword to all.
Forward, her children dear,
Ever with heart sincere,
Render with joy to your Mater her due;
All that is vile reject; Heaven will e'er protect,
Sons of St. La Salle valiant and true.
Lux Luceat Vobis (Let Your Light Shine)
Hail Alma Mater
Hail, Hail Alma Mater,
Hail to De La Salle!
We'll hold your banner high and bright,
A shield of green and white,
We'll fight to keep your glory bright,
And never shall we fail,
Hail to thee our Alma Mater!
Hail! Hail! Hail!
Cheer, cheer and courage display ,
All you La Sallians join in the fray!
Send a volley of cheers on high,
Shake down the thunder from the sky.
What though the odds be great or small,
We all La Sallians win over all,
While her loyal sons are marching
Onward to victory.
Rise, boys and loudly proclaim
That you will never sully her name!
Let the hills and woodlands ring,
Lift up your hearts and loudly sing.
What though the way be rough or steep,
We onto virtue's summons will keep;
And if e'er our country needs us,
Loyal and true we'll be.

Secondary School's Classes
Classes were named S, E, L, A, N, G, O and R after the state of Selangor for Forms One through Three. Forms Four and Five classes were name according to their streams with ST representing Sains Tulen (Pure Science) classes and SS representing Sains Sosial (Social Science) classes.
Later in 2003, the Ministry of Education introduced a new elective component for the subject Kemahiran Hidup (Living Skills). SMK La Salle Klang has two elective options offered to its student which are Perdagangan & Keusahawanan (Commerce & Enterprising) and Kemahiran Teknikal (Technical Skills). This has cause the classes Forms One through Three to be renamed P to represent the Perdagangan stream and K for the Kemahiran stream to easily differentiate between these two streams.
When new Principal Madam Lily Lee was appointed from SMK La Salle Petaling Jaya in early 2006, she changed the names of all the classes to give it a true La Sallian identity. Classes were renamed L, U, C, E, A, T, V and for all Forms One through Five, an idea obtained from the school's motto which is Lux Luceat Vobis.
There are five sport houses which comprises all students from Forms One through Five. The sport houses are named after former principals of the school. The sport houses which compete in the school's annual Sports Day Competition are Celestine (blue), Edmund (red), Harold (violet), Leo (yellow) and Philip (Green).
