Adventure of a lifetime in Delphi

 delphi6

The TY students recently travelled along the wild Atlantic way, deep into wild Connemara to Delphi Adventure Centre for their TY school trip this October 2017. The buses rolled out of Lucan with almost 150 students on-board as dawn was breaking on Monday with the students all nervously excited to undertake their first trip of this new school year.

On arrival, the students were immediately assigned groups and began their varied and colourful activities with bog swimming, archery, abseiling, high ropes and bushcraft just a sample of the many activities students could experience and enjoy. After an afternoon full of fun the students returned tired having sucked in buckets of fresh Connemara air.

After a restful night’s sleep, for most but not all, the activities began again early on a bright Tuesday morning with surfing, peer jumping, rock climbing, team challenges examples of the adventures on offer. After another very full day of activity and adventure, and with tired limbs and smiling faces, the buses departed from Delphi brimming with tired but joyful students.

Arriving back long after nightfall the students wearily headed home for a well-deserved sleep. A big thanks to TY coordinator, Ms Williams, for organizing the trip, the TY tutors (Ms Bean, Mr Carey, Ms Healy, Ms Flynn, Ms Joy) and Mr Purcell for giving up their time to supervise the trip.

In a little under 40 hours together the TY students will have formed new bonds with classmates, new friends with previous strangers and new memories that will with last them forever. An adventure of a lifetime.

Lucan Community College’s Parents Association will host their first meeting of the new school year on the 5th September at 7.30pm. The Parents Association would love to use the occasion of this first meeting to welcome new members, whether your children are in the college already or if they are new students to us.

The Parents Association is great way to get involved in school life, get to know other parents and contribute in a voluntary capacity. As always, the College would like to thank the Parents Association for their continued work over the years and look forward to working closely with them again over the coming year.
