Please vote to support our amazing Junk Kouture entry

We are really excited for our two Transition Year students, Eimear Corry and Amy Lyons, who have been been selected for the Junk Kouture Regional finals on the 5th of March in the Helix.

Everyone in the college is behind Eimear and Amy’s entry as the creative pair have worked so hard on their beautiful, plastic inspired dress.

However, Eimear and Amy require even more support in their push to get through the Dublin Regional Finals.

10% of the result in the Regional Finals will come from public voting.

The voting started on Monday the 18th of February and will end on Friday the 22nd of February.

As a college we would appreciate if everyone could take 1 minute to vote through the link below.

Lucan CC sparkle at the Leinster Indoor Athletics Championships

Lucan CC brought 28 1st & 2nd students to this massive competition which took place in Abbottstown’s beautiful indoor 200m track.

All of our athletes did Lucan proud sprinting, throwing and jumping. We stormed to success and took home several medals for all our hard work.

Our mixed relay team consisting of Alex Geissel, Gerard Gorman, Dara Donoghue, Milly Hughes, Ago Salawu and Ashley Kam claimed the top prize of a gold medal.

They ran an unbelievable race and worked together to claim that top spot.

Our 1st year boys relay team consisting of Llyod Gysai, Eoghan O’Connor, Ben McLoughlin and Thomas Jermain won their heat and booked their spot in the final.

Once again they ran so well and were deserving winners of their 3rd place and got the bronze medal. In the individual events Alex Geissel made the Long Jump Final and placed 3rd getting himself another bronze medal.

This was a highly contested competition with over 150 participants. Our very own Llyod Gysai won his 60m sprint and also won his semi-final and then came from the back in the final to claim himself another bronze medal.

This was a fantastic achievement for all our students. Well done everyone!

Junior Maths team strike gold in Newbridge

Congratulations to our Junior Maths Team, students Ronak Pathak, David Wright, Fintan Buckley, and Charlie O’Malley, on their fantastic victory in the regional IAMTA Problem-Solving Quiz.

The Lucan Community College team took gold in the prestigious Maths Quiz in Patrician Secondary School in Newbridge last week.

They will now go on to represent the school in the National Final on 23 March.

We wish them every success as they prepare for the national final!

We thanks their Maths teachers and Ms Suttle for all their hard work in helping the team prepare for the competition.

Lucan CC team win prestigious Dublin Maths competition

On Friday 25th of January two teams of four Leaving Cert students from Lucan Community College competed in the Dublin region round of the annual Team Math competition in Rathdown School, Glenageary.

This competition has been run by the Irish Maths Teacher’s Association since 1991. This year 48 teams from many different schools in Dublin and the wider area participated.

The competition is composed of 8 rounds of challenging questions based on the Leaving Cert higher level course.

We have competed in this competition for many years but this year is the first year we have been victorious.

We are so proud of our senior Maths A team of Alex Hanley, Luke Neville, Oisίn O’Sullivan and Petra O’Connor.

The team held off serious competition from the other schools including Sandford Park, Gonzaga College, Confey Community College, St. Gerard’s, Bray, St. Wolston’s, Celbridge amongst others and in doing so won the Dublin region competition outright.

The victorious Lucan CC team now progress to the national finals in Maynooth on Saturday 2nd of March. Well done also to our second team of Kevin Wang, Killian Lyons, Przemek Majda and Rίan Porter who performed brilliantly too.

Lucan CC junior girls crowned Shield Champions

Lucan Junior Girls footballers are champions again.
It was a great performance from the girls in the Junior Camogie shield final out in Naomh Marnog.

Lucan CC were simply far too strong for Trinity Comprehensive and the match was pretty much over after 10 minutes. Millie Reid, Niamh Roche and Fey Murphy were excellent on the day.

Final score 10-17 to 0-0.

Lucan CC smash local badminton blitz

Lucan Community College performed brilliantly at the Badminton Blitz held in Lucan Leisure Centre this week.

The 2nd year team won, 14 games to 6 with some very skillful shots but the 1st year team never gave up and improved with every game played.

Well done to all involved.

Cross Country Athletes Storm to Success

A superb day out today for LCC athletes at the West Leinster Cross Country Competition in the Phoenix Park.

The unpleasant weather conditions didn’t stop the team from running very strong races.

Congratulations to Milly Hughes, Liam Fitzgerald,  and Dara Donoghue for qualifying for the Leinsters.

They were also flying the flag today for local club, Lucan Harriers.

Congratulations to Leo Myers who also qualified for the Leinsters, and displayed enormous endurance in his race.
6th year student, and St. Coca’s athlete, Áine Burke, continued her outstanding winning streak this year, taking home 3rd place medal in Senior girls.

We are all very excited to see all run in Santry in the coming month. Special congratulations to 2nd years, Anna O’Connor, Luke Trunk and Ellie Sisk, who all put in amazing performances today.

Also, well done to 1st time competitor, TY student, Jessica Essien who demonstrated amazing confidence, strength and endurance in her first race.
Special thanks to Ms Brooks who accompanied the runners today and got a soaking! Best of luck to all the Leinster Final!!

Heavenly Lunch for Home Economics Students

5th year Home Economics students, enjoying the dishes they had prepared for one of their food assignments as set out for their Leaving Cert .

Well done everyone, good work, a high standard achieved by all.

Student-led Maths Club looking for numbers

A new maths club has just started in the college with the aim of helping those who need it most.

The Maths Club will run each Thursday at lunch in H6.

The club will be led by the Maths Department and Ms McKelvey and will see Transition Year students coach Junior Cycle students in developing important mathematical skills.

The Maths Club is also a perfect opportunity for first year students to come a try new and challenging areas outside of the maths classroom experience.

We are so thrilled that our amazing students want to help others and we wish them every success as budding trainee teachers!
