Malaysian Lasallian Education Council 2014


MLEC 2014 was held in Ipoh on December 14, 2014 at the Ibis Styles Hotel. The meeting was attended by the La Salle Brothers, Brother Conveners, two members from each MLEC affiliate organisations and key personnels from the Regional Lasallian Education Councils.
Areas covered included our quest to be service oriented as we go head-on and be ready to meet the needs of the last, the least and the lost. We are moved by the spirit of altruism and volunteerism that show service to others is a Lasallian way of life.
Lasallian Education moves towards our involvement in civil society for transformation, advocacy and dialogue with policy makers and MOE, based on strategic plans. Compared to the National Transformation Plan which focusses on the role of administrators and teachers to ensure success, the Lasallian Paradigm Shift looks into how the educative community in association can contribute to education and formation of our youth.
We also discussed in depth how we can bring about the dignity of students and provide quality of education.
Some very interesting ideas were brought up by Mr Michael Simon, Mr Megat and Dr Francis Loh. Brother Anthony Rogers chaired the meeting. Brother Visitor Fernando Fernandez also outlined a few points about the future of La Salle schools in Malaysia and how we can help revitalise these schools.
