Press release LC2020

Lucan Community College Leaving Certificate Results 2020

 

There was a very different sense of anticipation in relation to Leaving Certificate results this year. While our first day of school for our full student cohort continued on without any sounds of excitement in the air, teachers still waited with anticipation for the release to the school of the results. It was certainly not the same without our students gathering and celebrating along with their teachers, tutors and year head and we all missed handing out the brown envelopes and watching as they were opened. We hoped that you managed to make the process a little bit special in your own homes.

 

Overall the results received very much matched the expectations that teachers had for their students and the evidence that students had provided to their teachers in their ongoing assessments over the last two years. “The class of 2020 managed a very challenging situation and step forward into the world of further training, study or the world of work with an ability to deal with disappointment, change and uncertainty like no other year group. Their support for each other and the gratitude shown to their teachers who worked remotely with them from March to June has been wonderful to experience”, said Principal Diane Birnie.

 

Parents, guardians, families and friends supported and guided students throughout their second level education and especially during the remote learning period and the changing landscape of how students would be assessed.  Lucan Community College appreciates abnd commends this support and involvement. The college community thanks the students for their contribution to the college during their time here and is confident that the future holds wonderful things in store for them all.

 

Ms Clarke, year head, offered congratulations and best wishes to all of the students and said “You all did your best and we, in Lucan CC are very proud of you all. You are all choosing different paths and we wish you well as you embark on a new journey.” Our career guidance counsellors have made themselves available to advise students about their results and about their CAO offers and appointments can be made by email or phone.

 

Principal Ms Birnie and Deputy Principals Mr Brett, Mr Purcell and Ms Malone offered particular congratulations to top Leaving Certificate achievers this year including: Alex Hanley (who achieved maximum points – 625) with Lucy Reade, Delfin Malaj and Emmet Bellew all over 600 points. Our other top achievers this year were Sean Egan, Sam Doyle, Aisling Kavanagh, Laura Lakes, Aaron Mc Garth, Olan Song, Jordan Lee and Daniel Power.

 

Many students achieved personal best results and can be proud of their achievements. We remind students who may not have achieved their desired results to engage in the appeal process through the Calculated Grades Portal and to seek advice from career guidance counsellors and support agencies as there are many paths open to students. We wish our graduates very best of good luck in the future.

PE CHALLENGE

PE Challenge

 

Hi all,

 

We hope everyone and their family is doing well and had a relaxing Easter holidays.

As always, we want to remind you about the importance of being active during this time to not only help your physical well-being but your mental well-being also.

We are here to set you all a new CHALLENGE! This challenge is keeping within our daily 2km radius of our home and again remembering to practice social distancing when outside.

  • We want you to send us evidence of your steps/the distance you have walked/run/crawled!
  • We will then add all of these steps together to see how far in Ireland/The World we have travelled.
  • We will run a little competition between tutor classes, year groups and staff vs students (staff have been training 😉).

So, every time you go for your walk or run, screen shot your fitness app, fitbit, health app on phone or whatever device you have counting your steps/distance and email the picture to:

 

1st Years             emmageraghty@lucancc.ie

2nd Years            ainebrooks@lucancc.ie

3rd Years             hannahdowling@lucancc.ie

4TH Years            fionacoghlan@lucancc.ie

5th Years             hannahdowling@lucancc.ie

6th Years             emmageraghty@lucancc.ie

Staff                     ainebrooks@lucancc.ie

 

We will be sending out updates at the end of each week to see who is traveling the furthest and how far as a school we will go.

 

Remember, 30 minutes of physical activity each day will help you to focus, study better and remain healthy. Please keep sending in your pictures of any physical activity you are doing and they will go on the website.

 

Thanks, and we look forward to seeing how far LucanCC can travel in the world without getting in a car or on a plane.

SITUATION VACANT

Over €1700 raised through LCC Annual Secret Bag Collection for SVP

We held our annual school collection for the local St. Vincent de Paul Society again this festive period raising more than €1700 for those in need.

Christmas can be a difficult time for many in our community and we have been lucky to have been able to support the great work of our local St Vincent de Paul.

In fact this December marks 34 years of Lucan Community College, its families, students and staff, of support for SVP in the community. A most sincere thank you to all our school community for supporting the great work of St Vincent de Paul.

A huge thank you to Ms Ryan, Ms Mulhern and Ms Walsh and our college prefect team for their hard work in organizing the collection.

Kieran McBride, president of the St Patricks Lucan conference of St Vincent de Paul was present during our Christmas concert to accept the monies raised.

Lucan CC Christmas Carol Concert

Christmas came early last Thursday night with a night of fabulous festive cheer as part of our now infamous Christmas Carol Concert.

There wasn’t a seat left in the house for our Lucan CC Carol service as we gathered as a school community, past and present, to celebrate the true spirit of Christmas.

And what could be more pure than to be present on a cold December evening for a celebration of readings, dancing and singing.

The whole LCC community are immensely proud of all our wonderful student performers, the full school choir, past pupils, the LCC Trad group and the orchestra.

Thank you to Ms Conway and her team of merry teacher helpers (front of stage and backstage!) who worked so hard to bring this special event together.

Students sparkle in Annual Christmas Concert

We are officially in festive mode as we revel in the amazing talent on show in our annual Christmas Concert on Wednesday 19th of December.  The Christmas Concert has rightly become a firm highlight of the school calendar and this year certainly did not disappoint. The magical event featured the pure beauty of the best of student talent mixed with festive musical fare.

Particular highlights on the night included the full school choir singing of O Come Emmanuel with Jessica Essien performing the solo Mary did you know. Darragh O’Gorman, Jamila Khan and Isabelle Hughes almost brought the house down with their stirring version of O Holy Night. The traditional instruments roared into life as they accompanied Declan Fahy dancing on We Three Kings. The Christmas spirit was truly present during Oisin O’Sullivan’s reading of The Truce accompanied by a haunting choral performance in both German and English of Silent Night/Stille Nacht. Have yourself a Merry Little Christmas by Sarah Murphy was brought to life with an incredible interpretative dance by the talented Sheik Bah. The night was finally rounded off in style with Olivia Walsh and Patrick Quinn’s version of Fairytale of New York again accompanied by orchestra, traditional band and full choir as a tour de force of musical talent.

All through the evening’s performance the full Lucan CC school choir sang out each one of their festive numbers with passion and yuletide energy. In truth every single performance sparkled. Thanks to Ms Conway and every teacher involved in the planning and delivery of the concert for making the night such a special occasion.

However the biggest thanks must go to each and every student who played a part in bringing the magic of Christmas to life. This was a Christmas experience that will never be forgotten by those lucky enough to be in attendance.
