TRX bootcamp classes are running after school for junior and senior girls to promote fitness. There has been great attendance and involvement from students thanks to our PE department.


Congratulations to the 33 TY students who completed their Gaisce overnight trip last week with a 25km hike. Thanks to the three teachers who accompanied the students.

TY Musical

Rehearsals are continuing for our TY Musical – West Side story. We will shortly announce final dates and ticket sales for this wonderful event which will take place during the week of the 27th April.

World Maths Day

It was fitting that on World Maths Day many of our students joined the online Khan Academy to practice their maths skills and Alex Hanley in 1st year topped the National leaderboard in the Mathletes online competition for February. Please encourage your children to login and get involved. More details from maths teachers.

Gluais Team

Congratulations to student who were selected for our Gluais leadership team next year: Eoin Hayes, Cian Dwyer, Blanaid Smyth, Hazel Keogh, Sarah Walsh, Emily Coleman, Eva Minihane, Aby Coulibaly, Hannah Hughes and Brendan Holmes. This group will engage in training over the Easter holidays and will work with our 1st year students of 2015 to help them to settle into second level.

Toilet refurbishment

We were delighted to open our first set of refurbished toilets last week. Students were delighted with the brand new facilities and the remaining toilets are currently being completed.


Congratulations to our 2nd year boys basketball team on their win over Adamstown. Best for Lucan were Calum Walsh and Kingsley Okakpu. Hard luck to 1st year boys on their narrow loss.


Congratulations to the girls soccer team who beat Colaiste Bride 10-0 last week with 5 goals notched up by player of the game Aoife Hanley. This team which is largely made up of 2nd years have continually performed to a very high standard and show great team spirit.

Careers talk

There was great interest from 5th year students in the talk by former student Avril McManus and colleague Niamh from Google organised by our career guidance counsellors.


We are delighted to announce the winners of our Reading Week Poster Competition for 2023. The standard of talent and creativity was outstanding. Well done to everyone who entered a poster. The overall winners are Ellen Birnie (Junior) and Naoise Murphy (Senior). Congratulations!

Our Second Years are thoroughly enjoying their trip to Barcelona! Thanks to Ms McKelvey and the team of teachers who have travelled with over 140 second year students to give them this fantastic opportunity. @ddletb @LccAssoc

Ryan Lally from Grá Pizza ran a great workshop today on pizza making as part of a wellbeing promotion, and also talked about setting up your own business and all about buying good Irish ingredients. Staff and students were delighted with the pizzas! #wellbeing #buyIrish @ddletb

Thank you to our Parents' Association for the fabulous Easter treats which were kindly received by the teachers of Lucan Community College. We are grateful to have a fantastic Parents' Association who do phenomenal work behind the scenes for our school community. @LccAssoc
