De La Salle Brothers *

The De La Salle Brothers belong to a Roman Catholic Religious Order.

In Burma, they founded

  • St. Patrick’s High School (Moulmein)
  • St. Paul’s High School (Rangoon)
  • St. Peter’s High School (Mandalay)
  • St. Albert’s High School (Maymyo)
  • St. Columban’s High School (Bhamo)
  • St. Joseph’s High School (Loikaw)
  • De La Salle School (Twante)

St. Paul’s High School celebrated its Centennial during our school days and the Sesquicentennial a few years back.

St. Paul’s High School used to have an Honor Roll. It disappeared after the nationalization. It was recovered by U Soe Nyunt (Taw Win Hnin Si, GBNF).
