THE old boys of Lasalle Klang, popularly known as OLAK, are getting back together on the 22nd of October 2016 at a grand dinner to celebrate 25 years of the existence of its association, to be held at the Top Glove Ballroom, Level 9, Top Glove Tower, Persiaran Setia Indah, Alam Nusantara, Selangor.
   OLAK is inviting old boys from as far back as 1963, teachers who have retired as well as present teachers in the school to attend this reunion to rekindle old relationships. Many ex-students who have migrated overseas will be making the journey back home to spend some precious moments with old friends, teachers and family too.
    Marking this significant milestone will be a sumptuous 10-course Chinese dinner, a special opening ceremony featuring the St. Johns Institution Bagpipers, music and songs of yesteryear by the ever popular STAG band from Klang, an all-Lasallian cast of entertainers made of old and present students, door gifts and raffle draw with fantastic prizes.
   Demand for tables for the event has been amazing and those who have not got their tables yet are urged to do so right away to avoid disappointment. Tables are priced at RM5000, RM3000 and RM1000. Proceeds will be used to defray costs for the dinner and profits generated will applied to OLAK’s various student empowerment, and school-related programs.
  OLAK’s sports programs, especially its hockey team is always on the lookout for generous financial assistance. OLAK has the distinction of being the only school alumni to have fielded a team in the Malaysian Junior Hockey League since its inception in 1995 to the present day. The OLAK Hockey     Team were MJHL Champions in 1997, 1998 and 1999, and overall Champions in 1998 and 1999 and 2000. OLAK are the first and only team to have achieved such a feat of three championships in a row. 
   OLAK are also regular participants in the Pesta Hockey Penang USM Six-a Side where OLAK has been champions numerous times. OLAK also plays an active role in facilitating job placements for it’s hockey players, as well as placements in institutions of higher learning.
