Take time out to read some of these beautiful poems. The LLN & the English Department at LCC will always continue to foster a love for Poetry with the students, both in the reading and writing of poetry.

“Words, words were truly alive on the tongue, in the head

Warm, beating, frantic, winged; music and blood

But then I was young.”

From “Little Red Cap” by Carol Ann Duffy

The Parents Association is great way to get involved in school life, get to know other parents and contribute in a voluntary capacity.
