Lucan Community College hosted their annual Sports Day today and what day it was.
Massive congratulations to all students on a very successful day.
Each student gave their all and they can be rightly proud of their efforts for both themselves and their classes.
A big thank you to all the teacher helpers today who ran each event superbly and to our TY students for ably assisting.
Finally, a huge high 5 to our amazing PE department for putting on such a brilliant event for our students where each and everyone gets a chance to really enjoy taking part in physical activity.
Well done to our amazing Lucan Community College athletes who performed so brilliantly today in Santry.
Aine Burke, 6th year, ran an amazing race to take a silver medal and now qualifies for upcoming All-Ireland finals.
Eoghan O’Connor put in two great performances in the long jump & javelin great. Lloyd Gyasi and Millie Hughes were both terrific in placing 6th and 5th respectively in their finals.
Liam Fitzgerald grabbed 4th place and pushed so hard for the 3rd place right to the very end.
Each one of our athletes demonstrated the determination and desire to do their very best and we are proud of each of them.
A big thank you to their coach for the year, Ms Brooks and to Mr Morris for bringing them today and encouraging them all the way.
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.
Register and then search to the ‘Dublin Region’ and look up the name of Eimear and Amy’s dress ‘Drowning in plastic’ and click vote.
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 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.
Congratulations to our amazing Lucan Community College students who have been chosen as entrants in this year’s BT Young Scientist and Technology Exhibition. Five of our students have been selected to take part in this year’s BT Young Scientist Competition.
This year we have Gabriele Kolesnikovaite and Daniel Kolesnikovas, a sister and brother team, selected for their project 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 for their own topical investigation.
Click the link below to hear Cora, Faye and Tara explain more about their investigation from their stand at the exhibition.
A huge congratulations to these students, and also to their teachers Ms. Healy and Ms. Walsh, for being selected for the Young Scientist Exhibition. Best of luck this week in the RDS. Our Science team will bring all 1st year students to visit the Exhibition this week along with all students who entered projects but were not selected on this occasion.
Tús maith, leath na hoibre
Every language has its own collection of wise sayings. They offer advice about how to live and also transfer some underlying ideas, principles and values of a given culture / society.
These sayings are called “idioms” – or proverbs if they are longer.
Our Language Literacy and Numeracy team would like everyone in the college to celebrate these sayings and we will be selecting one each week to promote.
Our first idiom is ‘Tús maith, leath na hoibre’ which means a good start is half the work.
This saying is very appropriate as we all return from our holidays and start our studies again.
Remember, put the effort it now and don’t put off getting started!
