Thank you for your help and support with our annual St. Vincent de Paul secret bag collection which took place on Thursday, 6th December.
This year’s collection was organized by the 6th year prefect team, Ms Ryan and Ms Walsh, as we mark 33 years of Lucan Community College, its families, students and staff, supporting the local St. Vincent de Paul Society.
A staggering €1801 was raised which will make a huge difference this Christmas to local families in need.
This December marks 33 years of Lucan Community College, its families, students and staff, supporting the local St. Vincent de Paul Society with our annual secret bag collection.
This Christmas 2018, sees ever increasing needs for some families, these difficult times that they may face can cause poverty, stress, homelessness and hardship of a very severe level.
Next Thursday, the 6th of December, we are having our annual school collection for the local St. Vincent de Paul Society. It will once again take the form of a ‘secret bag collection’ where the students will pass around a bag/stocking and place some money towards the society.
Big or small, all contributions are gratefully received and will go to help others in need in this community over Christmas.
A most sincere thank you, in anticipation of your kindness, and a Happy and Peaceful Christmas and New Year to all.
Ms Walsh and Ms Ryan
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.
A huge thank you to our Transition Year students in class Johnston for their great work and dedication in raising vital funds for a local Dyslexia charity.
The students braved the elements for a charity collection over two cold days in Lucan for the Dyslexia Workshop Celbridge.
The Dyslexia Workshop supports children from West Dublin and North Kildare with dyslexia. The students raised close to €500 which will now will go directly towards providing much-needed resources required for the day to day running of the workshop.
Thank you to Ms Gallagher and Ms Williams for organising the event.
Lucan Community College staff, students and parents rallied together again this Christmas 2017 to raise much needed funds for St. Vincent de Paul.
The entire school community have embraced this special fundraising for SVP over the last number of years and it has grown both in strength and numbers.
The year staff and students continued with the tradition of the secret bag collection during morning registration. This allows for secret donations to be given in a pressure free capacity.
Lucan Community College’s commitment to the work of St. Vincent de Paul goes back many years having started in 1986.
In our old school building in Lucan Village, currently the site of Lucan Youthreach, staff and students made Christmas hampers that were distributed by SVP throughout the local community.
This Christmas 2017 has seen a further increase in pressure for families in difficulty. We hope that the funds we raise as a school community alleviate these pressures for some in our community.
If you or someone you know are in need of help this Christmas please contact St Vincent de Paul.
The college would like to thank Ms. Ryan for her continued dedication and commitment to this annual fundraising event.
This year we would also like to thank Ms Walsh and Ms. Mulhern for helping to organising the secret collection and also to the Transition Year and 6th year Prefect teams.
