Brief Calendar notes to all parents:

NB: Classes continue to end of school year as requested by parents for Exam Years.

  1. Starting dates for 2019 2020 School Year in Luttrellstown CC are  as follows:
Staff only August 23rd

  • 1st Years 9am to 12 Monday 26th

  1. New Timetable arrangements.
At Teacher Council and Board level a decision has been taken to adjust our timetable as LCC can no longer offer over 28 hours tuition. Next year’s timetable will be as follows:

Monday to Thursday 8.30 tutorial starting the day and a 3.40pm finish.

Friday will start straight to class at 8.30am and finish will be 12.10. Wellbeing will continue as a class on Fridays. 

Lunchtimes will be split for seniors and juniors next year. One group will take lunch at 12.20 and the second at 1.00pm for this reason our small break remains at 20 minutes to ensure no student goes hungry! Canteen facilities will be available at both breaks. 

This split lunchtime is for student safety and best practice with regard breaktime supervision. Arrangements have been discussed with the Teacher Council, Parent Council and Student Council.

  1. Junior Cycle Programme. LCC continues our progressive programme for Junior Cycle.
  1. Following a 6 week rotation 1st Year students will choose a short course between; Chinese, Coding or Drama Performance (subject to number limitations).
  2. Coláiste Na Tulchann will have Códáil & Ceol in 1st and 2nd Year.
  3. Wellbeing hours will increased in 2nd, 3rd and senior years as per circulars.
 

The new assessment reports will issue in mid-June and you will note the changes moving forwards towards formative assessment rather than summative assessment.  In some subjects both are necessary. Leaving Certificate courses remain mainly summative.

 

Thank you for your recent support at our 10th Anniversary celebration it was a fantastic occasion and a real celebration of our students your children’s talents. LCC school spirit shone brightly and the follow up Comhrá Cliste last Tuesday was equally amazing. Your children have endless potential and as I say Ní neart go cur le chéile in supporting everyone.

 

Is mise, le meas,

LCC at 10 Celebrations!

Launch of Amazon and LCC Community Initiative

Comhrá Cliste Luttrellstown Community College May 14th 2019

                                                                                   

Fáilte go Cairde Choláiste Pobail Bhaile Lotrail/ A welcome to Friends of Luttrellstown CC,



Beir Bua. We welcome you to our Comhrá Cliste on Tuesday the 14th of May at 2-3.30pm in Luttrellstown Community College which will be a great success. LCC’s students and staff have been working hard to bring together three project pitches that will be presented to a Painéal Cliste.



In partnership with Amazon Web Services the projects aim to bring to life elements of LCC’s mission statement;



We are united in our diversity to educate, integrate and facilitate excellence in the modern world for a better future.



The three groups consist of “Closing the Gap”, “Shared Social Space” and “Smart Garden”. “Closing the Gap” is a project to diminish language barriers between parents and schools with the aim of improving learning for students. “Shared Social Space” is looking to promote a safe social environment to integrate a diverse array of students and finally “Smart Garden” who have designed a place for the community which people can use ecologically and educationally as well as being able to facilitate those with sensory needs.



The winning team will collaborate with Amazon Web Services and then be assisted with any resources required. This is a great opportunity for Luttrellstown and for its students and staff. We hope you will be able to support our project teams.

Cuirimid fáilte romhaibh chuig an gComhrá Cliste ar an Máirt an 14 Bealtaine idir 2-3.30in i gColáiste Pobail Bhaile Lotrail. Bhí scoláirí agus baill foirne LCC ag obair go dian chun trí thionscadal a chur faoi bhráid an Phainéil Chliste.



Tá sé mar aidhm ag na tionscadail, i gcomhpháirtíocht le AmazonWeb Services, gnéithe de ráiteas misin LCC a fhíorú;



Táimid aontaithe inár n-éagsúlacht chun sármhaitheas sa domhan nua-aimseartha a theagasc, a chomhtháthú agus a éascú do thodhchaí níos fearr.



Tá trí ghrúpa i gceist: “Closing the Gap”, “Shared Social Space” agus “Smart Garden”. Is éard atá i gceist le “Closing the Gap” ná tionscadal chun bacainní teanga idir tuismitheoirí agus scoileanna a laghdú chun an fhoghlaim a fheabhsú do dhaltaí. Tá “Shared Social Space” ag iarraidh timpeallacht shóisialta shábháilte a chur chun cinn agus réimse leathan daltaí a aontú. Ag deireadh tá “Smart Garden” a dhearann spás don phobal ar féidir le daoine úsáid éiceolaíoch agus oideachasúil a bhaint as agus a chabhróidh leo siúd a bhfuil riachtanais céadfacha acu. Comhoibreoidh na buaiteoirí le Amazon Web Services agus ansin cuirfear acmhainní ar fáil dóibh. Is deis faoi leith í seo do phobail Bhaile Lotrail. Fáiltímid roimh bhur dtacaíocht do na foirne tionscadail.
