Participants will:

  • Have a greater understanding of what self-care is
  • Have a greater understanding of the importance of looking after their own wellbeing in their role as a parent
  • Be more aware of their own self-care needs.
  • Be able to develop their own self-care plan.

Annual St Vincent De Paul Society Secret Bag Collection 16 December 2020

You can read the letter at this link either: St Vincent de Paul Secret Bag Collection Christmas Letter 2020

14th December 2020

Dear Students, Families & Colleagues,

This December marks 35 years of you the College families, students and staff supporting the local St. Vincent de Paul Society. Thank you for your generosity and support over the years. It is really appreciated by the local families who it helps.

The tradition of collecting and distributing hampers to the local community and the subsequent “Secret Bag” collection was initiated and organised by our recently retired colleague, Margaret Ryan, who completed 34 annual collections for the local St. Vincent de Paul conference – for which thank her sincerely.

This year Christmas 2020 sees additional needs for many families in the local community in these difficult and challenging times. It is vital that Lucan Community College continues to support St. Vincent de Paul and their work in our community. Fundraising for the local society has been hugely impacted by Covid-19 restrictions (the cancellation of church-gate collections etc.), so it has never been a more important year to keep up the tradition of supporting St. Vincent de Paul here in Lucan.

On Wednesday 16th of December we are having our annual Christmas collection for the local St. Vincent de Paul society. It will once again take the form of a “secret bag collection” where students will pass around a bag and place in it, some money towards the society. Big or small, all contributions are gratefully appreciated and will go directly into the community to help those in need this Christmas. Please give as generously as possible.

If you are a family in need, the services of St. Vincent de Paul are available to you, so please contact your local branch here in Lucan.

A most sincere Thank You in anticipation of your kindness and generosity, and a Happy and Peaceful Christmas and New Year to all.

Yours sincerely,

Ms. Martina Feeney, Ms. Marissa Mulhern, Ms. Nicola Walsh

Stand Up Awareness Week at LCC -Nov. 16th-20th

STAND UP AWARENESS WEEK

it’s important that every child feels safe and happy in school and as teachers that’s what matters to us all. Research has shown that 6-10% of any group of young people may be LGBT+  so it’s likely some of our students will benefit from having this week in school! LCC is a warm, inclusive, support environment, this really matters so much for our young people. No one should ever feel alone.

Addition to Code of Behaviour for Covid-19 protocols

Students and Parents/Guardians please note:

The Board of Management have approved the following additional policy provided by the Department of Education relating to students following all arrangements in place for the health and safety of our students. It can be read in full here: Lucan CC Covid-19 Health and Safety Policy

This policy coupled with our newly adopted additional rule from our last Board meeting:
should act as a clear deterrent to any student who is not taking the special arrangements seriously.
We are delighted by the respect shown by most of our students for our rules and usually a gentle reminder by staff is all that is needed to correct something. However, having the strength of wording of this policy behind the school in case of a serious infringement offers reassurance to the school community that such matters will be taken seriously and that the health, safety, physical and mental wellbeing of all school staff and students and their families are of absolute importance.
While classroom compliance with the rules and regulations is at a very high level, we have some ongoing concerns about the physical distancing of students outside of classrooms and on the journey to and from school. We ask all parents/guardians and students to discuss this seriously and return next week with a determination to follow physical distancing rules more strictly. Remember we are doing this not only for our own safety but also for that of the most vulnerable in our wider school community.
Please ensure that parents/guardians and students discuss this new policy and its implications over the days ahead as it is now officially part of our code of behaviour even though it is not published in the student journal.
