St. Josephs’ College Lucan News – December 2019

TY Student Enterprise Christmas Fair

Our TY Student Enterprise Christmas Fair took place on Monday 16th December. The Student Enterprise Programme is Ireland’s biggest student enterprise competition. It enables students to acquire real life skills associated with running a business – working as part of a team, managing finances, organising a marketing campaign, liaising directly with customers etc. Our Christmas Fair was a fantastic success again this year and afforded students the opportunity to display their innovative ideas.


Carol Singing in Marymount Nursing Home

Our Annual Carol Singing in Marymount Nursing Home took place on Tuesday 10th December under the musical direction of Ms Kearney & Ms Mellett. All fifth and sixth year students and staff were invited to attend the event. Christmas Cards, made by Ms Kearney’s 2nd and 3rd year Irish classes were presented to the residents. It was, as always, a very moving occasion for all.


TY Ice Skating

As part of the Transition Year Physical Education Programme, our TY students went Ice Skating in December at ‘South Dublin on Ice 2019’ in Tallaght Stadium. Students and staff had a super time!


Butler’s Chocolate Factory

5th Year Students visited Butler’s Chocolate Factory on December 2nd  as part of their LCVP Summary Report for their portfolio. The girls had a great time designing their Chocolate Santa’s! Yum!


German Tour

Our German Tour departed on Tuesday 3rd December. 23 of our German students, accompanied by their teachers, spent 3 days and nights in the  historic city of Berlin and returned on Friday. It was a beautiful, festive time of year to see the city.
