Building work on the five temporary classrooms is progressing at speed. This block will house three general classrooms, one Home Economics kitchen and one Technology/Design Communication Graphics room. Students will have access to these rooms after Christmas and once the full school extension is completed the area will be converted to hard courts for use for outdoor activities. Some of the trees removed to facilitate the building work will also be replaced.
Comhghairdeas le foirne díospóireachta Gaeilge na scoile a ghlac páirt sa chéad babtha den comórtas Gael Linn an seachtain seo. Ba choir go mbeidís an bhródúil astu féin. Éacht iontach ab ea é bheith páirteach sa chomórtas seo. Mí Ádh don fhoireann sinsearach nár éirigh dul ar aghaidh agus go n-éirí leis an bhfoireann Sóisearach go háirithe a bhuaigh in aghaidh Coláiste na nDoiminceánach atá ag dul ar aghaidh don céad babtha eile.
Foireann Sóiearach : Jordan Hartnett, Alex Healy, Matthew O’Donnell (Junior)
Foireann Sínearach : Amy Cassidy, Orla Beagan, Jenny Bowler (Senior)
Congratulations to our Irish debating teams who took part in the first round of the Gael Linn Competition recently. They should be extremely proud of themselves. It was a great achievement to take part. Hard luck to our senior team who did not go through to the next round and the very best of luck to our junior team who beat the Dominican College, Sion Hill to go through to the next level.
Congratulations to Danielle Murray, a fifth year student who represented the Republic of Ireland at the UEFA Women’s U17 Championship Qualifiers in Serbia. The team successfully qualified for the next phase of the competition.
Lucan CC had an impressive win against Portmarnock Community School 37-7. The team played as a unit and were very aggressive in the break-down scoring 7 tries to 1. Man of the match was Eric Greene. This is following on from their impressive win against Castleknock Community College last week. Team mentors are Mr Byrne and Mr Morrissey. This is the furthest that a rugby team from Lucan CC has reached in this competition. Best of luck in the next round lads!
Our 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.
Silence fell around LCC at 12.35 every day during Reading Week while students and teachers discovered the pleasure of immersing yourself in a good book. Good luck to all who entered our Halloween poetry competition and well done to those who received certificates for engaging in the Bookworm Summer reading club. Thanks to our English department and literacy team.
