Lucan Community College’s Parents Association special meeting tomorrow evening will feature John Lonergan, the former Prisoner Governor of Mountjoy for 24 years and current author and motivational speaker, as their guest speaker.

The John Lonergan talk was unfortunately cancelled last month due to Storm Ophelia and we are delighted that we could rearrange this new date with John.

This special Parents Association meeting, focusing on the challenges of raising teenagers, will take place in Lucan Community College on Tuesday 7th November at 7.30pm. All parents are invited to attend and we are sure there will be massive demand for this exciting event so please come on time to guarantee your seat.

John Lonergan will be speaking about parenting from his own experiences. These experiences had led John to recently publishing a book on the topic; Parenting: Raising Your Child in Ireland Today.

At the Parents Association meeting John Lonergan will also speak about his life, his job as Prisoner Governor in the country’s toughest prison as well as the challenges of parenting in modern Ireland.

If you have not yet attended a Parents Association event, please make this your first meeting as it promises to be both informative and entertaining.

All parents and members of the wider school community are warmly welcomes to this Parents Association event and we hope to see you there on the night.

Clothing donations sought to raise funds

Lucan Community College Parents Association is seeking clothing donations to raise funds for the college. Clothing donations can be dropped off after 9am to the reception area of the college on Wednesday 11th and Thursday 12th October.

The Parents Association welcomes donations of shoes, handbags, belts and general clothing. However, they ask that no bed linen be included in any donations.

Students can drop off their families clothing donations before 8.55am registration on both days or parents can drop off donations after 9am. Members of the Parents Association will be on hand to collect the items on both days – making it a good opportunity to meet other parents and find out more about the great work the Parents Association does.

We urge all members of our school community to support this great initiative. Hopefully it will give an opportunity to get rid of some wardrobe clutter and raise important funds in the process.

Lucan CC Extension gets the go ahead

keep-calm-and-move-ahead

We have just been advised that the Department of Education and Skills review of Stage 2A is now complete. Dublin and Dun Laoghaire Education and Training Board will shortly receive written notification that we can now proceed to Stage 2B. The design team will then begin the Stage 2B work which has as its stated objectives to:

  • Obtain all statutory approvals
  • Ensure that the project is fully designed and detailed before going to tender and that all the information necessary to complete the construction is included in the Tender Documents. This includes:
    • Preparation of detailed design drawings and specifications for the design within the agreed project budget, incorporating any conditions arising from statutory approval, to enable the preparation of a Bill of Quantities (or other agreed tender documentation) based on full and complete design.
    • Preparation of the Bill of Quantities (or other agreed tender documentation) and all other tender documentation required. (See also DTP2012 – Preparation of Tender Documents)
  • Prepare an accurate pre-tender cost estimate not more than 1 month before the issue of request for tenders.

As a community we are absolutely delighted with the news that our much needed extension has moved ahead to the next stage of planning. This represents a huge step forward for Lucan Community College, our students, teachers and parents in getting a school building to match the quality of our teaching and learning. We want to acknowledge the huge effort made by our pupils with their petition and also our Board members, parents and teachers with their individual letters to the Minister for Education and local representatives in getting the extension back on track. We also acknowledge the ongoing work of the DDLETB building team who are managing this process. We sincerely hope it now moves ahead at speed without any further delays.
