Hail To De La Salle

An inspiring La Salle song to start the new school term.

The Lyric 
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!

The song was composed by Br Stephen Malachy and Bonaventure Richard in 1961 in the Philippines. It was first adopted by the College basketball team and cheerleaders and soon became an anthem sung in almost all Lasallian gatherings and events.

This song was sung every Monday morning during the prefect's assembly during my form 6 times (2010, 2011). It was brought up by the head prefect of that time, Tihn Chern to instill Michaelian quality in all the prefects~ =)
