We are officially in festive mode as we revel in the amazing talent on show in our annual Christmas Concert on Wednesday 19th of December. The Christmas Concert has rightly become a firm highlight of the school calendar and this year certainly did not disappoint. The magical event featured the pure beauty of the best of student talent mixed with festive musical fare.
Particular highlights on the night included the full school choir singing of O Come Emmanuel with Jessica Essien performing the solo Mary did you know. Darragh O’Gorman, Jamila Khan and Isabelle Hughes almost brought the house down with their stirring version of O Holy Night. The traditional instruments roared into life as they accompanied Declan Fahy dancing on We Three Kings. The Christmas spirit was truly present during Oisin O’Sullivan’s reading of The Truce accompanied by a haunting choral performance in both German and English of Silent Night/Stille Nacht. Have yourself a Merry Little Christmas by Sarah Murphy was brought to life with an incredible interpretative dance by the talented Sheik Bah. The night was finally rounded off in style with Olivia Walsh and Patrick Quinn’s version of Fairytale of New York again accompanied by orchestra, traditional band and full choir as a tour de force of musical talent.
All through the evening’s performance the full Lucan CC school choir sang out each one of their festive numbers with passion and yuletide energy. In truth every single performance sparkled. Thanks to Ms Conway and every teacher involved in the planning and delivery of the concert for making the night such a special occasion.
However the biggest thanks must go to each and every student who played a part in bringing the magic of Christmas to life. This was a Christmas experience that will never be forgotten by those lucky enough to be in attendance.
Excitement is nearing fever pitch with just 1 sleep to go until our magical annual Christmas Concert this Wednesday 19th December at 7.30pm.
All are welcome and we ho-ho hope to see you there.

A Makeup Masterclass will be held on June 17th in Finnstown Castle, Lucan as a fundraiser for Gluais.
Gluais is a voluntary youth leadership programme that prepares students to work together as a team and become role models for other students in the school.
Tickets are €20 per person and includes 4 hours of demonstrations, entry to a raffle and a special goodie bag on the day.
The Makeup Masterclass fundraiser will hopefully go some way to enable approximately 30 adults to train 60 students over 5 days of leadership training.
Gluais has been a hugely successful part of our extracurricular programme in Lucan CC over the years and we have seen at first hand the benefit it has, not just for those participating but for the wider school community.
We hope that the fundraiser is a huge success and urge anyone in our community with an interest in student leadership to support this local initiative.

We urge all friends of the college to check out the amazing talent that exists within our local community.
Our Amnesty students and staff will again take to their sleeping bags and sleep outdoors in the Millennium Garden area of the school in a bid to raise awareness and show solidarity with homeless families and individuals.

Students from Lucan CC gave an outstanding performance in the National Concert Hall on Tuesday evening at the DDLETB Festival of Music.
The group, consisting of 50 students, performed a medley of Aslan songs.
Along with a little help from Ms Conway, the students arranged the instrumental and vocal parts for the performance.
Jordan Murphy led the group at the piano and Griffin Harris gave an amazing performance as lead vocalist.
The group consisting of students from all year groups, brought a very positive energy to the evening and were a credit to the school in every regard.
A number of our students also took part in the DDLETB main choir and a special mention to Darragh Bacon who sang a beautiful solo in the choirs’ arrangement of The Parting Glass.
Ms Conway and the students would like to thank staff and parents for their support throughout the year.
Also, a special word of thanks to Ms Joy, Ms Monaghan, Ms Birnie, Ms Clarke for all their help and generosity with their time both in the lead up and on the night.
The final thank you must go to Ms Conway who put in so much time of her own time ensuring the students were able to shine on the night and in doing so created memories that will last long into the future.
