Key Dates – End of 6th year arrangements
Dear Parent/Guardian of 6th years,
Your Son/Daughter(s) are busy completing coursework, preparing for their exams, organising the end of year graduation ceremony and planning for their future. With this in mind, we would like to share with you the arrangements for their remaining few weeks at LCC.
On Monday, Mr Brett and Ms Birnie visited all 6th year classes to pass on importance dates and important information about the standards expected from students during the remaining weeks of class and to remind them of the supports available in the school and to wish them well. Here is a summary of those dates:
Start 7.30pm end approx. 9.15pm; Tea/Coffee/biscuits in Dining Hall; Gathering in Lucan Sarsfields (students and staff)
|Where possible a classroom will be made available for students to study during the remainder of school term. – students who wish to avail of this must give their names to Mr Carey.|
|The following dates are confirmed for LC Applied exams:
Monday 8th Irish Oral
Wednesday 10th ICT
Thursday 11th English & Communications Oral
Tuesday 16th HCT Practical
Students were also reminded of the Key people for support: Mr Carey, tutor team, Ms. Higgins -LCA, guidance counsellors, Ms A Hickey (SEC coordinator), Mr Clancy (Examination Aide during June)
We are also asking for a contribution towards covering the cost of the graduation ceremony and grad book of €15.00 per student. Please pay through our school payment system: https://ams.enrol.ie/lucancc/index.aspx
The success of these last few weeks all hinge on mutual respect, good communication and on students understanding that the final days for 6th years can be made very special by the school, only if every student understands that what might be fun or special for one person might be uncomfortable or challenging for others. The school must keep running under the usual school rules through the school year.
We ask you to please reinforce this message to your Son/Daughter and that:
- they continue to attend regularly and punctually right up to the end of their timetabled classes so that they can pick up all revision and study tips and suggestions from their teachers;
- they continue to be in full school uniform, following all of the school rules so that time can be focused on the positive events to come and not on negative conversations.
Students have been fully informed of the range of sanctions that the school would have to impose if a student does not follow the rules or is inappropriate during these final weeks including suspension, expulsion, revoke permission to attend any of the final events, etc.
We want to ensure that all 6th years have a very positive final few weeks of term and that the events arranged by the school and the various sub-committees run smoothly and can focus on memories, friends and special events. We thank you for your ongoing support and look forward to seeing you at the graduation ceremony.
Mr Carey & 6th year tutor team

The meeting will take place in person in the college next Thursday, 1st December 4.00-6.30pm. Students are invited to attend with their parents for this final meeting between home and school.

Dear 6th year LCA students and parents,
Welcome back to the new school year and hoping that all our students are now well settled an into a good routine. Mr Carey and the tutor team have been busy reminding our students about the changes in rules and procedures and encouraging them to get into good homework and study habits from the start.
