Movember 2022

Movember is the leading charity changing the face of Men’s Health. Men’s health is in crisis. Men are dying on average 5 years earlier than women, and for largely preventable reasons. Worldwide, one man dies by suicide every minute of the day. These are shocking statistics that motivated us to support the cause.

Over the past two years, our Movember team of Lucan Community College Mo Bros raised over €5,500  for this charity. This is a great reflection on the generosity of our school community. So far this year we have raised over €500.  This years staff team members are Mr. Foley, Mr. Spillane, Mr. Callaghan, Mr. MacGrianra and Mr. O’ Droighneain.
This year, the Sixth Year Prefects and Year Head, Mr Carey, are organising a Moustache Day for students and staff on Friday November 25th to show their support and help raise funds for this worthwhile cause. So please grow, wear, or draw on your Moustache and donate €2 for a worthy cause!

Annual Arts Week in Lucan CC 2016

What a fantastic ‘artistic’ week – great fun and great learning. All first, second, third and fifth years took part in a full day of workshops throughout the week culminating in our annual Dress Up Day on Friday 28th October. This year workshops concentrated on areas such as pod-casting and music technology but also the usual favourites were back – African and Samba Drumming, Bodhrán playing, Circus Skills and Juggling to name only some.

The Dress-Up day,  in appreciation of the centenary of the 1916 Rising, was to form a human tri-colour flag with different years wearing the Green, White and Orange which we attempted in the drizzle before all students and teachers took part in our annual Whole School Table Quiz. Thanks to Mr Ciarán Duffy for organising the week (again) and for all the staff who helped make this week run so smoothly for our wonderful students.

The SpinRowathon was also introduced this year as a charity fundraiser for the Irish Cancer Society and we thank all the students and their families and friends who donated to this great cause. Thanks to Jimmy Stagg from Stagg Cycles Lucan who provided the bikes and rollers for the spinathon.

Enjoy the midterm break.
