20 January 2015
The teaching unions TUI and ASTI have informed the DDLETB (our employer, Dublin and Dún Laoghaire Education and Training Board) that all TUI and ASTI union members have been directed to take strike action on Thursday 22nd January. Pickets will be placed on all schools, colleges and education centres where TUI or ASTI members are employed on that day.
As a result DDLETB will not be in a position to discharge its responsibilities with regard to the care of students in its charge.
Lucan Community College and DDLETB is therefore requesting you to keep your son(s) and/or daughter(s) at home from school on Thursday 22nd January.
The Mock exams will be starting soon so 3rd years and 6th years have plenty to study. Transition Year students are preparing for work experience and have a number of projects that they can be working on and other students have homework and plenty to revise. Please encourage your son/daughter to use the time at home to revise and study.
