Lucan CC Transition Year students were among 50 select teenagers gathered together to discuss the importance of staying safe online at Twitter’s Dublin HQ. The digital activism event, organised by UNICEF, involved Lucan Community College students discuss ways to stay safe online when using social media.

The students had plenty of opportunity to discuss the numerous challenges and opportunities of growing up in a digital age at the event organised by UNICEF.

Executive Director of UNICEF Ireland, Peter Power said the digital activism event was about listening to young people as UNICEF “believe they should be given every opportunity to influence their own futures.”

Sinead McSweeney, Managing Director of Twitter Ireland, said Twitter was “committed to helping students engage with an increasingly diverse online environment, while empowering them to use digital platforms when they feel compelled to speak out on issues they’re passionate about”.

A big thank you to the Transition Year students who actively engaged in the event and also to Ms McCarthy for organising the trip.

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.
