The PE department are delighted to announce that a fitness bootcamp will start for all girls after the February mid-term break. The school has secured funding from South-Dublin Sports Partnership and will be able to run a free six-week course led by former LCC student and fitness guru, Mark Lacey, for all girls in Lucan CC. The programme is aimed at getting girls of all ages who are currently not active or exercising regularly to get involved in a fun fitness environment. The bootcamp starts on Wednesday 24th February at 1.10pm until 2pm and we hope to see you there!
Our Mental Health Week is taking place from Monday 8th – Fri 12th Feb. The main objective of the week is to get every student to reflect on how they manage their emotional wellbeing and to provide students with information on supports available. We are very excited this year to have four transition year students who have completed peer education training with Jigsaw Clondalkin. They have been visiting 2nd and 3rd year classes delivering a presentation to students about Mental Health. Other activities and competitions have been taking place for other year groups throughout the week. Student feedback has been very positive. The main message of the week is that we all need to look after our Mental Health and it is very helpful to keep in mind the 5 things we should all do every day to mind our Mental Health.
