Students call on Minister for Education to prioritise Lucan CC’s school extension
Gabriele Kolesnikovaite is pictured presenting letters from students, parents and staff to Minister McHugh on 14th November 2018 asking that the school extension process for Lucan Community College is prioritised. The Minister thanked students for raising this important issue.
Gabriele was part of a group of LCC students who attended a media launch for BT Young Scientist and Technology Exhibition. Gabriele Kolesnikovaite and Daniel Kolesnikovas are a sister and brother team whose project is entitled “An Investigation of How The Bi-Annual Clock Change Effects The Irish Population”, a very topical project.
Transition Year team Cora O’Toole, Faye Murphy and Tara Phelan are working on “Women In Sport:a Study To Investigate and Examine The Most Effective Ways of Keeping Girls Playing Sport Throughout Their Teenage Years” and have already gathered over a thousand response to their online survey.
Expect to see these students leading the BTYSTE social media campaign when it kicks off later this month.
Congratulations to these students and their teachers Ms Healy and Ms Walsh for being selected for the Young Scientist Exhibition and best of luck with the work ahead. Our Science team will bring all 1st year students to visit the Exhibition in January along with all students who entered projects but were not selected on this occasion.
An amazing range of imaginative ideas were generated by our science students. Great to see our budding scientists engage with practical research
