Idiom: a manner of speaking that is natural to native speakers of a language

Tús maith, leath na hoibre

Every language has its own collection of wise sayings. They offer advice about how to live and also transfer some underlying ideas, principles and values of a given culture / society.

These sayings are called “idioms” – or proverbs if they are longer.

Our Language Literacy and Numeracy team would like everyone in the college to celebrate these sayings and we will be selecting one each week to promote.

Our first idiom is ‘Tús maith, leath na hoibre’ which means a good start is half the work.

This saying is very appropriate as we all return from our holidays and start our studies again.

Remember, put the effort it now and don’t put off getting started!

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.
