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

Lucan Community College Non-Uniform Day – donations to SVP local conference

Thank you for supporting our Midterm Non Uniform Day. Our nominated charity is the Society of St Vincent De Paul. To avoid collecting coins and notes from students we are asking our school community to donate on-line this year. Don’t forget that masks must still be worn and all the usual health and safety rules apply.

Go to: https://svp.ie/get-involved/donate/single-donation.aspx

Select East for where you want your donation to go to and write in Lucan Community College as the Company Name so that all of our donations can be identified and passed onto our local conference. Then enter all other necessary information and click donate now.

As Friday 23rd October is Ms Margaret Ryan’s final school day as she takes early retirement, it is fitting that we use Friday’s non-uniform day to raise money for this worthy cause as Ms Ryan has organised the school Christmas SVP collection (from hampers to financial donations) for an incredible 34 years with the assistance of many other staff members and student leaders. Thank you Ms Ryan for your leadership of this initiative over the life time of the Lucan Community College.

SVP’s help and support in our local community is so vital in these challenging times and their usual fund-raising opportunities have been badly affected by the restrictions in place. Thank you for giving whatever you can to help those in our community who need some additional help and support at this time.

FUNDRAISING

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.

New Year Message from the Parents’ Association

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: lccparentsassoc@gmail.com.

Thank you, from everyone involved in the Parents’ Association.
