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.

Lucan Community College students celebrated World Human Rights Day on December the 9th (a day before the actual day – Saturday the December 10th -the anniversary of the UN creation of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in 1948). This international document, signed by over 190 nations, states the 30 basic rights and fundamental freedoms to which all human beings are entitled.
The Lucan CC Amnesty group, worked with different subject departments in the school, to organize a number of whole school events to raise awareness about human rights issues.

A prize giving ceremony took place in the hall in the afternoon of Friday 9th, where winners of the different Human Rights Day competitions were presented with prizes and certificates.
The activities and events were hugely successful.
“Principal Ms Birnie said “Our senior students continue to lead the way in shining a spotlight on the importance of campaigning for human rights. Students have engaged with these issues in a strategic and creative manner.”
