Natural History, La Salle Panama, c.1953

The Christian Brothers offer a real-life natural history class to their young students at La Salle School in Panama.  The Brothers have been running schools in Panama for over a hundred and fifteen years.  In 1904, just a year after the young Republic gained its independence, its government invited our Brothers, who had recently been expelled from France, to run schools there.  We have been working with Lasallian youth there ever since.
