He who asks a question is a fool for five minutes; he who does not ask a question remains a fool forever. – Chinese Proverb

He who asks a question is a fool for five minutes; he who does not ask a question remains a fool forever. – Chinese Proverb

Like most ancient proverbs the origin is difficult to source. However, the meaning should resonate for anyone interested in learning – You have a question, but you’re afraid to ask it. You don’t want to look foolish, stupid, or inattentive in front of your peers. So you say nothing, and having not asked, you never learn what you need to know.

Yes, you might feel silly asking the question, but this is just for a short time. If you did not ask, when would you have learned?

By not asking, you leave yourself a ‘fool’ for the rest of your life. So be brave, ask that question and be the master of your own learning!

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.
