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.

Calling all new coders to an hour of code in E5

hourofcode

This week we celebrate national Computer Science Education Week in the college which coincides with the celebration of 50 years since kids programming languages were first introduced to the world.

For the past number of years here in Lucan Community College we have been doing our bit to encourage students to get involved in coding with Ms McCarthy and Mr Foley run a Scratch Coding Club after school on Wednesday afternoons.

coding 3

This year, we have a particularly enthusiastic group of students who have impressed us with their creativity and problem solving abilities in the world of coding. Their willingness to help out and to even teach the group is what makes the club a success.

 coding

Scratch Club is open to all students and we would like to invite students who are not regular members of the LCC Scratch Club to join us in the hour of code in Room E5 at 1:15 this Wednesday where they can sample some self-led coding tutorials in a relaxed and friendly environment.

Spaces are limited so please contact either Ms McCarthy or Mr Foley in advance to ensure we have a place for you.

National Science Week took place from 12th to 19th November 2017. Science students engaged in a variety of science focused activities ranging from daily puzzles to quizzes.

Those who designed science posters faced tough competition with a very high standard of posters entered by students. The winners of the first year poster competition were Anna Capcarrere and Stephen Lamb. Joint winners of the second year poster competition were Amy Martin and Yasmin Aminou with their very creative science posters.

The daily puzzles challenged students with some students entering more than one answer to increase their chance of winning a prize.

The winners of the daily science puzzles were as follows:

Monday: Marius Furtig-Rytterager (2nd year)

Tuesday: Megan Flanagan (1st year)

Wednesday: Anna Wanic (1st year)

Thursday: Charlie O’Malley (3rd year)

Quote me on that: Lucan CC’s literacy quotes programme

drseuss

The Language Literacy Numeracy (LLN) committee are continuing the development and encouragement of literacy skills within our college community with a new, exciting inter-departmental activity.

The LLN committee will be running a weekly departmental quote from each department over the next few months. This is a great way for our students to experience the rich language associated with the full range of our college departments.

Each quote is included in the daily announcements announced by Ms Birnie, placing each quote as central to our school day here in the college.

Students are also asked to record each departmental quote in their journal or to organize a separate quotes notebook.

The quotes, while representing the different departments, will prove incredibly useful for both Junior Cert and Leaving Cert essay writing.

So far since we started the school focus on quotes we have had a mathematics quote from Albert Einstein and a Pablo Picasso quote from the Art department.

Next week will see the school adopt a Virginia Woolf quote from the Home Economics Department, which is very fitting for our whole-school Wellbeing programme!

Traditionally literacy has been considered as having the skills needed for reading and writing; but today our understanding of literacy encompasses much more than that.

Literacy includes the capacity to read, understand and critically appreciate various forms of communication including spoken language, printed text, broadcast media, and digital media.

Literacy may be encountered in traditional written forms or through the internet and digital media, when we follow signs and instructions, through working or enjoying leisure time.

Please encourage your son/daughter to recite for you these quotes at home and keep an eye on the website for more news as we roll out more quotes from every department in the college.
