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.

The Lucan Community College annual Christmas concert was a huge hit again this year as it brought festive cheer to all in attendance last night.
The concert, now in its 14th year, wowed students, past-students, parents and staff with a beautiful choral tribute to Christmas.
The level of performance was incredibly high with each and every note savoured by those in attendance.
There was also some beautiful individual performances with Emma and Rachel Kilroy performing ‘Mary, Did you know’ in an acoustic duet and Darragh Bacon and Domhnaill Ó’ Corragáin providing a haunting performance of the Fleet Foxes ‘White Winter Hymnal’.
Gail Elise also performed a beautiful solo rendition of ‘Where are you Christmas’ from the movie The Grinch.
Traditional festive favourites were also on show with Jordan Murphy singing a pitch perfect rendition of ‘The Christmas Song’ by Nat King Cole while a beautifully performed,multi-lingual version of ‘Silent Night’ by Ana Gayubo Kinch, Anna O’Connor, Anna Wanic and Ellie Sisk in first year drew rapturous applause from the audience.
The Lucan Community College Chamber Choir put in another outstanding performance throughout the evening with rousing renditions of ‘Jingle Bells’, ‘Hark the Herald’ and ‘Oh come, All ye faithful’.
The Chamber Choir, led expertly by Mr Duffy, ended on a high with their beautiful, show-ending performance of ‘Holy night’.
As usual, Mr. Purcell got to show his full range of skills with his piano accompaniment in an evening that also saw Ms. Suttle join the Chamber Choir for this special celebration. Thank you also to all the teachers who helped create the Christmas setting for the concert and to Ms Quirke and Ms Malone for helping with the festive food on the night.
There was even enough time for one more final festive Jingle Bells before all got to enjoy the mulled wine and mince pies to complete the college’s Christmas celebration with our community.
As admission was free, the college gave the audience an opportunity to contribute to a local charity at the end of the concert. This raised almost €200 for the NCBI and the work they do with people with sight issues all around Ireland.
A huge thank you to Mr. Duffy and each member of the Chamber Choir, the time spent practicing for this night was hugely appreciated by all lucky enough to be there to witness this special Christmas moment.
