Today marks the 369th birth Anniversary of St John Baptist de La Salle, April 30 1651
The amazing French Priest who pioneered countless innovations in pedagogy that the world takes for granted. Key contributions such as teacher training, teaching the students in their own language, the simultaneous teaching method, specialised schools like technical and trade schools. He also started several Religious Orders for men and women to serve the poorest of the poor and inspired many others to do the same. His legacy is responsible for millions of hearts by touched and transformed over the centuries!
Say a prayer of thanksgiving to our Founder today!
