Paris | In the Footsteps of De La Salle | The Brothers of the Christian Schools

Rue Princesse

It was at the school for the poor on Rue Princesse that the Brothers were to find their first success in Paris. This became the Juniorate, and the primary location in Paris.

Questions to Consider

  1. This first effort of the Brothers in Paris became key in the future of schools throughout the city. What parts of Br. Gerard’s commentary support that statement?
  2. The Conduct of Schools became a key component in the success of Lasallian education. Why is that? Are there any contemporary examples of how this principle or dynamic is true in all human ventures?
  3. How important is it that the teacher models behavior for students – incidental or essential? Give some examples.
