A big thanks  to team-works and LCC staff for for taking our TY’s out of their comfort zone and encouraging them to learn together in new ways. Team-Works focuses on the development of communication, trust and collaboration within a team.

Our transition years participated in all the events and the weather was kind to them too. Ms. Higgins

Transition Years with STRIPE….

Lucan Community College is delighted to have been selected to take part in a virtual two-day TY event with STRIPE, the Tech company set up by the Collison brothers from Limerick and operating from Silicon Valley. STRIPE is a company that builds economic infrastructure for the internet.
This is a fantastic opportunity for the students who put their names forward and this will look impressive on their CVs in the years to come.
We have celebrated the success of the young entrepreneurs from Limerick by naming a class in the college after them, so it is lovely to get an insight into their successes for our students.
