1916 - a year after De La Salle College saw its first high school graduates, Brother Director Acisclus Michael FSC sent a circular to many former students of the Christian Brothers’ schools in Hong Kong, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, and Seremban who resided in Manila.

Mr. Arnaldo Da Silva, an alumnus of St. Joseph’s College in Hong Kong and working for Warner Barnes in Manila, was elected President.
