Pastoral care


In Lucan Community College each person is valued and respected for who they are. Within our school there exists a supportive, safe and friendly environment, where we foster collaboration and promote equality and tolerance as preparation for life and involvement in society. In our college we engage in the ‘tutor system’ as a means of pastoral care and getting to know each individual student and their needs.

Each student in each class group in every year of our school is assigned a Tutor. This is a teacher who, in a voluntary capacity, is the mentor for their particular class. The role of the tutor is one primarily concerned with the welfare of the students, their positive induction and integration into school life each year and continued well-being within our school.

Each year group and tutor team is governed by an Assistant Principal teacher in the position of Year Head. The Year Head and tutor also have specific roles to perform in regards communication between school and parents/guardians via the student’s college journal and in parent-teacher meetings. It is vital that every parent/guardian communicates information in relation to the well-being of their child to the tutor, year head or guidance counsellor so that the college can best support your son/daughter as they engage in second level education.

The counselling/guidance department can also be called upon by Year Head or management to become involved in a pastoral role also. Staff in Lucan Community College take great pride in the positive relationships formed between all members of our community; students, parents and staff.

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.
