***Luttrellstown CC is Structurally Sound***

A  chairde,

I am happy to inform everyone that further to conversations with the Chief Executive and the Department that Luttrellstown CC is structurally sound.  Remediation works have taken place and some minor works are currently underway. All will  be completed by August 22nd

LCC will be closed tomorrow Friday  16th  to allow the work to be unhindered by footfall. The Community Centre will accept applications for 2020 on our behalf for this day only. From Monday staff have permission to work in Phase 2 only until 22nd . We open to staff on August 23rd and it will be business as usual. 

Phase 2 of the investigations will take place later in the year or early 2020. This  next investigation relates to Mechanical Electrical matters. I will circulate information on same when received but these matters do not usually result in any school closure. 

Our summer camp will proceed as planned on the 20th 21st as will  staff interviews however all will take place in Phase 2 and be accessed through the entrance to the Community Centre. 

Thanks to everybody for their co-operation. 



Is mise, le meas,

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
  • All years   8.30am to 12.00 Tuesday 27th

  • All Years 8.30am to 12.10 Friday 30th. Please note new finishing time Friday.
 

 

  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,
