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.
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.
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.
Lucan Community College students celebrated World Human Rights Day on December the 10th with an awards ceremony in the hall for the winners of Human Rights themed competitions.
The winners of poetry, art, photography and the “Great LCC Bake Off” competitions were presented with their certificates and prizes bt the LCC Amnesty students who organised the events.
The spectacular event was concluded with an action by the Amnesty students raising awareness of “Write for Rights” cases in support of the campaigns for justice for Sarah Mardini and Seán Binder, Yiliyasijiang Reheman, Yasaman Aryani and Nasu Abdulaziz.
All of our Human Rights Day events were very successful in raising awareness and in celebrating at LCC, the 71st anniversary of the Declaration of Human Rights.
Thank you to Lucan Community College Parents Association for providing finance for the prizes for these competitions.
Please note the following changes in our Child Protection Procedure. As of 20th November 2019 the Deputy Designated Liaison Person (DDLP) is Mr Stephen Brett, Deputy Principal.
