Transition Year: Another one of our transition year groups attended the public speaking workshop, these are fantastic workshops that build the students confidence to speak in a public place or in front of an audience which is a vital life skill. The delivery of these workshops is engaging and relaxed and promotes student participation at all times which makes them thoroughly enjoyable for the students.

Our first group of students will take to the Liffey this week when 4A1 go rafting with rafting Ireland, this is always an enjoyable activity where the group will raft from Lucan to Palmerston.

Transition Year Information Evening: On Thursday the 15th of September there was an online webinar information evening scheduled for the Parents of Transition year students.

Bake Sale: On Thursday we had the first charity bake sale of the year which took place in Ms Banks' room at break time and lunchtime with all proceeds going to Harold's Cross Hospice. Students and Staff contributed to the delicious treats that were on sale. Well done to all involved. So far there has been over €700 raised and counting.

New Building: Work has finally begun on the first phase of our new school extension with the builders now on site. Major work has already been done in preparing the site for the first phase with the relocation of the Staff car park to the rear of the School and the erection of temporary accommodation in the basketball court area. The front entrance of the school is now not accessible with the school only being accessible from the Lucan Heights entrance. An information letter has been sent out to all Parents/Guardians in relation to the safe drop off and pick up from the school with no access for drop off or pick up through the Lucan Heights gate. Parents/Guardians should continue to drop students off at the lay-by outside of the school for the safety of the students and to ease the congestion on the Lucan Heights gate entrance. We thank you for your cooperation on this matter.
