The Geography students in Transition Year undertook their fieldstudy of a marine environment this week in Donabate on what should have been a sunny May day.
The students were amazingly enthusiastic as they battled the unseasonal May weather to record various data that measures whether coastal deposition is occurring along the stretch of North Dublin coastline.
A huge thank you to Ms. Quirke, Ms. Murphy and Ms. Bean and Mr. Morris for organizing the students and the educational trip.
A group of 30 students went to Leinster Driving Campus in Maynooth, Kildare on Friday 4th May for a driving lesson.
Each student got to take part in a quiz where we were asked several questions from the theory test you take when getting your driving license.
We then each got to do an activity which involved the wearing of ‘beer goggles’ these goggles simulated the effects of driving under the influence of alcohol. We were asked to stack several cones wearing these goggles.
Lastly, was our driving experience. Each of us got into groups of 3 and got into a car with the driving instructor.
We were informed of all the operations involved in driving a car before driving around the course.
This was a great experience for us all and a special thanks to Mr.Doyle for organising this.

In Lucan Community College we pride ourselves on providing excellent education for the local community of Lucan.
Lucan Community College places all of our students at the centre as active agents in their own education.
Each student’s personal growth is encouraged through the development of self-esteem, self-confidence and self-discipline.
Consistent attendance and excellent punctuality is a vital part of this learning journey, enabling all students to reach their potential and be the best that they can be.
This Strategy for School Attendance aims continues this approach.
The strategy outlines our positive approach to the management of attendance within our school environment to encourage attendance and participation in school.
We appreciate the effort and commitment that all members of our school community put into ensuring that all of our students are at where they learn best – the classroom.
A Makeup Masterclass will be held on June 17th in Finnstown Castle, Lucan as a fundraiser for Gluais.
Gluais is a voluntary youth leadership programme that prepares students to work together as a team and become role models for other students in the school.
Tickets are €20 per person and includes 4 hours of demonstrations, entry to a raffle and a special goodie bag on the day.
The Makeup Masterclass fundraiser will hopefully go some way to enable approximately 30 adults to train 60 students over 5 days of leadership training.
Gluais has been a hugely successful part of our extracurricular programme in Lucan CC over the years and we have seen at first hand the benefit it has, not just for those participating but for the wider school community.
We hope that the fundraiser is a huge success and urge anyone in our community with an interest in student leadership to support this local initiative.
