‘Thank you’ to all the local businesses and to the Parent Association for your amazing support and hard work.
The College held a Jersey Day last Friday 28th of February in memory of our dear teacher Mr David Byrne.
We raised over €2000 which will go to support a student in the college who is having medical treatment abroad. Great to see the whole school community join together in remembrance of Mr David Byrne while also supporting one of our own students.
UPDATE: Lucan Community College are delighted to announce one important event for your calendar. Please support our Bingo Night in the Lord Lucan 13th Feb 7.30pm.
The Self-care Workshop for Parents/Guardians Supporting Young People due to be presented by Jigsaw as part of our involvement in the One Good School may need to be postponed from Tues 25th Feb 7pm to another date. We will keep you updated.
Parent Association Update for New Year 2020
Dear Parents & Guardians,
The Parents Association (PA) would like to wish you all a happy new year and to update you on what has been happening since the AGM in September.
The PA supports the school in many ways behind the scenes. Our motto is ‘many hands make light work and every little helps’. Thanks to your support through various raffles, used clothes collections and the annual fundraiser the PA have been able to provide so much for our school over the years, most recently:
- Colourful benches in the hall areas outside classrooms for students to hang out;
- Sports gear for the various team events which all require different types of jerseys;
- Computer equipment and learning support reader pens;
- Support for school activities and societies, such as the History dig for first years;
- Vouchers for prizes and incentives for school initiatives e.g homework club, amnesty bake-off;
- Christmas icicle lighting in the two courtyards to complement the lovely student festive artwork.
It all takes time, planning and preparation. You see where this is going ……
Here is the fundraising invitation from the PA for 2020:
How can we raise the most money ever with the combined/focused effort from all of us?
The annual fundraiser which will take place at 8pm on Thursday 13th February 2020 is A Karaoke Bingo Night at The Lord Lucan, with a bumper raffle.
Here are some ideas on how you might be able to help us out:
- Put the date in your diary.
- Can you come along on the night? Bring a friend?
- Will you buy some raffle tickets? Sell some raffle tickets? Donate a prize?
- Do you have a company which can do something to help out?
- Do you work for a company who has a Corporate Social Responsibility initiative that could help us or the school out? With this fundraiser or with another initiative?
- Have you any ideas to make it a really great night?
A lot must happen before the 13th February to make it a success. There are more and more demands on people’s time, so by working together we just might surprise ourselves with how easy and fun the whole process can be. Contact us via email: firstname.lastname@example.org.

Thank you, from everyone involved in the Parents’ Association.
A staggering €1801 was raised in our annual St. Vincent de Paul secret bag collection this December. This amazing figure will make a huge difference this Christmas to local families in Lucan who are in need.
Students involved in our Christmas Concert also made two well-stocked Christmas food hampers which were collected by the local St Vincent de Paul volunteers today along with the cheque for €1801.
A huge thank you to Ms Ryan, Ms Mulhern and the 6th year prefect team for organizing the collection and to all of our families, students and staff for their continued support of the local St. Vincent de Paul Society.

A staggering €1801 was raised which will make a huge difference this Christmas to local families in need.
This December marks 33 years of Lucan Community College, its families, students and staff, supporting the local St. Vincent de Paul Society with our annual secret bag collection.
This Christmas 2018, sees ever increasing needs for some families, these difficult times that they may face can cause poverty, stress, homelessness and hardship of a very severe level.
Next Thursday, the 6th of December, we are having our annual school collection for the local St. Vincent de Paul Society. It will once again take the form of a ‘secret bag collection’ where the students will pass around a bag/stocking and place some money towards the society.
Big or small, all contributions are gratefully received and will go to help others in need in this community over Christmas.
A most sincere thank you, in anticipation of your kindness, and a Happy and Peaceful Christmas and New Year to all.
Ms Walsh and Ms Ryan
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.
A huge thank you to our Transition Year students in class Johnston for their great work and dedication in raising vital funds for a local Dyslexia charity.
The students braved the elements for a charity collection over two cold days in Lucan for the Dyslexia Workshop Celbridge.
The Dyslexia Workshop supports children from West Dublin and North Kildare with dyslexia. The students raised close to €500 which will now will go directly towards providing much-needed resources required for the day to day running of the workshop.
Thank you to Ms Gallagher and Ms Williams for organising the event.
