Lucan CC sparkle at the Leinster Indoor Athletics Championships

Lucan CC brought 28 1st & 2nd students to this massive competition which took place in Abbottstown’s beautiful indoor 200m track.

All of our athletes did Lucan proud sprinting, throwing and jumping. We stormed to success and took home several medals for all our hard work.

Our mixed relay team consisting of Alex Geissel, Gerard Gorman, Dara Donoghue, Milly Hughes, Ago Salawu and Ashley Kam claimed the top prize of a gold medal.

They ran an unbelievable race and worked together to claim that top spot.

Our 1st year boys relay team consisting of Llyod Gysai, Eoghan O’Connor, Ben McLoughlin and Thomas Jermain won their heat and booked their spot in the final.

Once again they ran so well and were deserving winners of their 3rd place and got the bronze medal. In the individual events Alex Geissel made the Long Jump Final and placed 3rd getting himself another bronze medal.

This was a highly contested competition with over 150 participants. Our very own Llyod Gysai won his 60m sprint and also won his semi-final and then came from the back in the final to claim himself another bronze medal.

This was a fantastic achievement for all our students. Well done everyone!

Lucan CC junior girls crowned Shield Champions

Lucan Junior Girls footballers are champions again.
It was a great performance from the girls in the Junior Camogie shield final out in Naomh Marnog.

Lucan CC were simply far too strong for Trinity Comprehensive and the match was pretty much over after 10 minutes. Millie Reid, Niamh Roche and Fey Murphy were excellent on the day.

Final score 10-17 to 0-0.

Lucan CC smash local badminton blitz

Lucan Community College performed brilliantly at the Badminton Blitz held in Lucan Leisure Centre this week.

The 2nd year team won, 14 games to 6 with some very skillful shots but the 1st year team never gave up and improved with every game played.

Well done to all involved.

Student-led Maths Club looking for numbers

A new maths club has just started in the college with the aim of helping those who need it most.

The Maths Club will run each Thursday at lunch in H6.

The club will be led by the Maths Department and Ms McKelvey and will see Transition Year students coach Junior Cycle students in developing important mathematical skills.

The Maths Club is also a perfect opportunity for first year students to come a try new and challenging areas outside of the maths classroom experience.

Lucan CC receives Irish Ambassador as part of Global Schools Programme

We were delighted to welcome Michael Collins, Ireland’s Ambassador to Germany, to Lucan Community College last week as part of the new national global schools initiative. Lucan Community College was one of only 20 schools across the country selected to be part of this new national educational programme.

The Irish Ambassador was accompanied by Maeve Killen from the Department of Foreign Affairs, who opened the talk by explaining the context of “Global Ireland” programme and its ambition to double Ireland’s impact in the world by 2025.

Ambassador Collins then took to the stage to outline the work of Embassies and the plans to broaden Ireland’s Embassy footprint through ‘Global Ireland’. He also spoke passionately about the importance of the UN, why we are members, and draw on their own experience with the UN and how the UN touches all our lives.

This was followed by Irish peacekeeper who outlined Ireland’s work over the last 60 years as peacekeepers and spoke about the importance of peace-keeping as one of the main contributions Ireland will continue to make as part of ‘Global Ireland’.

‘Global Schools’ has allowed us a school to explore Ireland’s role on the world stage, bringing a deeper understanding of how UN membership and the Irish diplomatic service.

The informative talk was attended by interested TY, 5th and 6th year students as well as our 5th year politics class and a group representing Amnesty. German students involved in our 25th exchange also attended having previously met Michael Collins as part of our 25th anniversary celebrations in Muenchberg two years ago alongside our college prefects and representation from our student council and active parents association.

Trailblazers lighting up the BT Young Scientist and Technology Exhibition

Congratulations to our amazing Lucan Community College students who have been chosen as entrants in this year’s BT Young Scientist and Technology Exhibition. Five of our students have been selected to take part in this year’s BT Young Scientist Competition.

This year we have Gabriele Kolesnikovaite and Daniel Kolesnikovas, a sister and brother team, selected for their project entitled “An Investigation of How The Bi-Annual Clock Change Effects The Irish Population”, a very topical project. Transition Year team Cora O’Toole, Faye Murphy and Tara Phelan are working on “Women In Sport: a Study To Investigate and Examine The Most Effective Ways of Keeping Girls Playing Sport Throughout Their Teenage Years” and have already gathered over a thousand response to their online survey for their own topical investigation.

Click the link below to hear Cora, Faye and Tara explain more about their investigation from their stand at the exhibition.

A huge congratulations to these students, and also to their teachers Ms. Healy and Ms. Walsh, for being selected for the Young Scientist Exhibition. Best of luck this week in the RDS. Our Science team will bring all 1st year students to visit the Exhibition this week along with all students who entered projects but were not selected on this occasion.
