Literacy quote of the week: “We have always known that heedless self interest was bad morals, we now know that it is bad economics.”
This week’s literacy quote comes from the Economics department. They have chosen a quote from former US president Franklin D. Roosevelt, delivered during his second inaugural as US president address in 1937.
“We have always known that heedless self interest was bad morals, we now know that it is bad economics.”
Roosevelt’s quote, now 81 years old, rings as true today as it reminds of the importance of both moral and ethical approaches to the pursuit of economic development and growth.
Congratulations to our Music department and the senior cycle Music students who have been selected from a record number of applicants to perform in the prestigious Festival of Music on February 28th 2018.
The Lucan Community Music Students will perform their Aslan Medley on the night, as well as performing alongside the other choirs as part of a group choir performance.
The Festival of Music will be held in the National Concert Hall and is a celebration of music from around the globe in conjunction with Dublin and Dun Laoghaire ETB.
Well done to Lucan Community College’s Parents Association who held a particularly fun and entertaining Bingo Night in December.
The night was a huge success with great support from parents and friends in the community.
The Parents Association would like to thank their many sponsors for their generous support of the night – without them the night would not be possible.
The funds on the night raised will go towards improving the school building and resources as we moves into our extension and renovation phase over the coming years.
Thank you to each and every member of the Parents Association from all the staff in Lucan Community College.
We sincerely appreciate the huge time and effort you put in to helping and improving the school community.
Quote of the week – PE Department: You cannot buy your health; you must earn it through healthy living
This week’s literacy quote comes from the Physical Education department. They have chosen a quote from American doctor Joel Fuhrman to encourage us all to take care of bodies and our minds as we enter 2018.
Their quote encapsulates this as it encourages us all to place looking after our bodies and our health as our number one priority.
You cannot buy your health; you must earn it through healthy living - Joel Fuhrman
We hope you take encouragement from the PE department’s quote and begin 2018 by really looking after yourself and your wellbeing.
