Californian researchers visit the college


Lucan Community College played host to two researchers from South California Doctoral Programme on Thursday 21st April. Mathew Holton and Owen Crosby, Superintendent and Assistant Superintendent in the Chaffey Joint Union High School District, visited our Science teachers and students to research the effect of student participation in science projects such as BT Young Scientist and Scifest on Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths education. They observed several classes, interviewed teachers and students and arranged completion of research questionnaires as part of their visit. Our thanks to teachers Audrey Byrne, Aisling Quirke and all of the science department for facilitating the visit. We wish Mat and Owen and the other participants in the programme every success with their research.

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
