Thanks to all parents/guardians and prospective students who attended our Open Day on Thursday 13th October. We estimate that there were about 450 families represented on the day. Visitors to the school were offered a guided tour by our current students and received a brochure outlining the various curricular and extra-curricular programmes that are on offer in the college. Each subject area had a display of work done by students and teachers and students were on hand to answer questions from visitors. Parents and students leaving the school commented on how proud our students are of the College and of being a member of our community.

Thanks for members of our Parents’ Association who attended and offered a cup of tea to visitors as well as explaining the importance of parental involvement in our school.

Class Whitaker

Our 6th year students are busy preparing for the Leaving Cert written exams in June while still managing to cope very well with current Irish language orals.


The French and German orals and music practicals went very smoothly. Upcoming art, engineering and construction practicals and the LCVP exam will be happening within the next 2 weeks. Best of luck to all.


Valentine’s Day Poetry competition poem

Recently the English Department ran a Valentine’s Day Poetry competitionwriters. Congratulations to all the winners. Enjoy this clever ‘Love Poem’ by Darragh Gorman 1st year, Class Slaney:

Love Poem

By Darragh Gorman

When I first met you,

One year ago,

Your good looks engulfed you,

I fell for you so.

Since then we’ve been together,

A love that’s so true

With you I’m not bored and

I never feel blue.

You’re truly the smartest,

You know everything, and

When you play music,

I can’t help but sing.

When I’m not with you,

I feel so alone,

I can’t live without you,

My Sony Experia phone.

Arts Week

artsweekaOur annual arts week was a wonderful success with students participating in a wide range of workshops and activities throughout the week. The student talent show on Monday night showcased our wonderfully musical and artistic students and was expertly and uniquely compered by Deven O’Kearney. Wednesday was our Halloween themed dress-up day – hope not too many Lucanians were traumatized by the ghoulish costumes! We ended with a sponsored ice-bucket challenge with students, teachers and principal braving a soaking in order to raise money for arts week and for Pieta house. Well done to all for your participation and to our Arts week team for organizing events.

Trip to National Gallery

Our 2nd year art students visited the National Gallery with Ms McKeever and Ms Kerwick this week and were impressed with their guided tour. The museum staff commented on the interest and enthusiasm of the students.

Put your Maths Eyes on!

mathseyesCalling all Lucan CC students, parents and staff. As part of our numeracy policy, we are asking everyone to “Put your Maths Eyes on” this summer and share what you see with us. Using the theme of “Summer Maths” we want you to take a photograph associated with the summer holidays which has an element of maths in it. This could be anything from taking a photo of an ice-cream CONE on a sunny day, a beach ball (SPHERE) being used at the beach or a plane/train TIMETABLE used to get you to your holiday destination.

Have a look at the website www.haveyougotmathseyes.com for more ideas.

You can print the photo and drop it into us with your name and class on the back or email it to the school at admin.lucancc@ddletb.ie with your name.

When we gather the photos in September the most imaginative and interesting ones will be displayed on the school website and on a new Lucancc Maths Facebook page and there may even be a prize or two!
