Principal’s News

The last couple of weeks have been very busy in Lucan East ETNS.

  • Third class have been learning about circuits and static electricity;
  • Art club did some beautiful artwork with chalk on the ground in the yard;
  • Our Camogie team had another big win!;
  • First class have started to do tag rugby; and
  • Our Parent’s DIY Club have redecorated the Principal’s office.

What a fantastic school community we have.  We are very lucky to have such a wonderful team.

Next week we are looking forward to Skipping Workshops which we have arranged for all of the classes next week.  We are asking that each child bring in €1 to do the workshop which is being subsidized by the Board of Management.

We are still looking for more helpers to join our committee for our 10 year celebration in September.  We need as many hands on deck as possible to make this a memorable occasion.  The more the merrier.  If you are free to help in any way at all, big or small, please email me at

Wishing you all an enjoyable and relaxing weekend with your families.

Kind regards,

  • Hurling
  • Gaelic Football
  • Hip Hop
  • Yoga
  • Warm-up exercises in the line every morning
  • The children even did Active Homework this week!

A big thank you to our PE committee who worked extremely hard to organise all of these activities for the children.  Our Jersey Day today went down a big hit and every contribution will help greatly towards buying our new sports equipment.  Thank you to all of the families and children for their contributions.  They are much appreciated.
