Lucan CC team win prestigious Dublin Maths competition

On Friday 25th of January two teams of four Leaving Cert students from Lucan Community College competed in the Dublin region round of the annual Team Math competition in Rathdown School, Glenageary.

This competition has been run by the Irish Maths Teacher’s Association since 1991. This year 48 teams from many different schools in Dublin and the wider area participated.

The competition is composed of 8 rounds of challenging questions based on the Leaving Cert higher level course.

We have competed in this competition for many years but this year is the first year we have been victorious.

We are so proud of our senior Maths A team of Alex Hanley, Luke Neville, Oisίn O’Sullivan and Petra O’Connor.

The team held off serious competition from the other schools including Sandford Park, Gonzaga College, Confey Community College, St. Gerard’s, Bray, St. Wolston’s, Celbridge amongst others and in doing so won the Dublin region competition outright.

The victorious Lucan CC team now progress to the national finals in Maynooth on Saturday 2nd of March. Well done also to our second team of Kevin Wang, Killian Lyons, Przemek Majda and Rίan Porter who performed brilliantly too.

Lucan CC junior girls crowned Shield Champions

Lucan Junior Girls footballers are champions again.
It was a great performance from the girls in the Junior Camogie shield final out in Naomh Marnog.

Lucan CC were simply far too strong for Trinity Comprehensive and the match was pretty much over after 10 minutes. Millie Reid, Niamh Roche and Fey Murphy were excellent on the day.

Final score 10-17 to 0-0.

Lucan CC smash local badminton blitz

Lucan Community College performed brilliantly at the Badminton Blitz held in Lucan Leisure Centre this week.

The 2nd year team won, 14 games to 6 with some very skillful shots but the 1st year team never gave up and improved with every game played.

Well done to all involved.

Cross Country Athletes Storm to Success

A superb day out today for LCC athletes at the West Leinster Cross Country Competition in the Phoenix Park.

The unpleasant weather conditions didn’t stop the team from running very strong races.

Congratulations to Milly Hughes, Liam Fitzgerald,  and Dara Donoghue for qualifying for the Leinsters.

They were also flying the flag today for local club, Lucan Harriers.

Congratulations to Leo Myers who also qualified for the Leinsters, and displayed enormous endurance in his race.
6th year student, and St. Coca’s athlete, Áine Burke, continued her outstanding winning streak this year, taking home 3rd place medal in Senior girls.

We are all very excited to see all run in Santry in the coming month. Special congratulations to 2nd years, Anna O’Connor, Luke Trunk and Ellie Sisk, who all put in amazing performances today.

Also, well done to 1st time competitor, TY student, Jessica Essien who demonstrated amazing confidence, strength and endurance in her first race.
Special thanks to Ms Brooks who accompanied the runners today and got a soaking! Best of luck to all the Leinster Final!!

Student-led Maths Club looking for numbers

A new maths club has just started in the college with the aim of helping those who need it most.

The Maths Club will run each Thursday at lunch in H6.

The club will be led by the Maths Department and Ms McKelvey and will see Transition Year students coach Junior Cycle students in developing important mathematical skills.

Lucan CC receives Irish Ambassador as part of Global Schools Programme

We were delighted to welcome Michael Collins, Ireland’s Ambassador to Germany, to Lucan Community College last week as part of the new national global schools initiative. Lucan Community College was one of only 20 schools across the country selected to be part of this new national educational programme.

The Irish Ambassador was accompanied by Maeve Killen from the Department of Foreign Affairs, who opened the talk by explaining the context of “Global Ireland” programme and its ambition to double Ireland’s impact in the world by 2025.

Ambassador Collins then took to the stage to outline the work of Embassies and the plans to broaden Ireland’s Embassy footprint through ‘Global Ireland’. He also spoke passionately about the importance of the UN, why we are members, and draw on their own experience with the UN and how the UN touches all our lives.

This was followed by Irish peacekeeper who outlined Ireland’s work over the last 60 years as peacekeepers and spoke about the importance of peace-keeping as one of the main contributions Ireland will continue to make as part of ‘Global Ireland’.

‘Global Schools’ has allowed us a school to explore Ireland’s role on the world stage, bringing a deeper understanding of how UN membership and the Irish diplomatic service.

The informative talk was attended by interested TY, 5th and 6th year students as well as our 5th year politics class and a group representing Amnesty. German students involved in our 25th exchange also attended having previously met Michael Collins as part of our 25th anniversary celebrations in Muenchberg two years ago alongside our college prefects and representation from our student council and active parents association.
