Students and staff at Lucan CC have fund-raised for many charities over the recent weeks. Ms Ryan and some Transition Year students organised the St Vincent de Paul secret money-bag collection last week and in total €1425 was raised. Cathleen Henry and Kieran McBride from the local branch of St Vincent de Paul are pictured above receiving our donations to help those struggling this Christmas season.

Over €1000 was raised from our non-uniform day which will help the following charities: Focus Ireland, World Youth Day organisation and the Rainbow Child Foundation. Ms Ryan and the prefects team organised the St Vincent de Paul secret money-bag collection last week and in total €1425 was raised. Ms Gallagher and some of the TY fund raising team raised over €800 for Dyslexia Ireland this week in the pouring rain around Lucan. Over €300 was raised from the annual staff coffee morning in aid of St Brigid’s Hospice, The Curragh in memory of past PE and Maths teacher Carol Meehan.

We thank the students, their families and the staff for their generous contributions to extremely worthy causes this Christmas. Enjoy the celebrations and the holidays.
