MoËt Club - Nicolle Moët de Brouillet
La Salle College, Middle Swan, WA


The Moet Club takes its name from John Baptist De La Salle’s mother, Nicolle Moët de Brouillet, a woman of great influence on a young John. Nicole gave up her right to nobility by marrying Louis De La Salle, a man outside of her class. She married for love rather than for position or wealth and security, which was the norm at that time. It is little wonder that De La Salle gave up his wealth to pursue higher ideals, though the wonderful example set by his mother.

The Moet Club welcomes La Salle College staff members to join in a meeting, once a term, to meet, pray, discuss, plan, and develop a sense of collegiality whilst focussing on the teachings of John Baptist de La Salle.The outreach project is centred on Reaching the Unreached India, where all fundraising from this Club will be sent.

OUR CLUB'S AIM
