Some of Lucan Community College’s 2020 graduates paid us a visit last Wednesday afternoon. The Parents Association were collecting the balance of money for Debs tickets (postponed until November with additional backup dates if needed).
Ms Mellet arranged to distribute memory envelopes that some of the students had written in 1st year to their future 6th year selves. There were smiles and laughter as students read out some of their 1st year hopes and dreams and Ms Clarke, Year head and other teachers popped out to say socially distanced hellos.
In his letter to future self Stanko wrote: “I would like to get enough points on the LC for my dream job – Air traffic controller” and is now off to study for this career in DCU.
Ciara asked herself – “did I fail Junior Cert Tech Graph” and was relieved that she hadn’t. She wasn’t so sure if her aspiration to improve her hand writing had been successful as yet though.
Lorcan had wondered: “Will I be the next Usain Bolt”. Not yet he smiled!
Students also sought out teachers to pass on thanks for their support during the remote learning period and throughout their time in school and lovely cards and emails of thanks were received.
Our guidance team was in contact with most of the class of 2020 and were supporting students as they made choices for the year ahead. We are delighted that most of our students are now on a path to further study, training or starting employment. Well done for weathering the storm of Leaving CertIficate 2020.
