Mission Statement and Ethos

MISSION STATEMENT

The distinguishing features of Lucan Community College are:

  • It is multi denominational, catering for students from a wide variety of religious backgrounds
  • It is co-educational, catering for boys and girls equally
  • It is comprehensive, offering a broad educational experience.

The motto of the college 'Aontas' meaning Unity, encapsulates the ethos of the college. Our fundamental belief is that school, and in particular the work and the activities involved, should be a pleasant as well as an enriching experience. We therefore lay total emphasis on the school as a community – of students, staff and parents – working in harmony. We consider that everyone has an absolute right to work and develop in a happy atmosphere free from unnecessary stress and tension.


We, the educational partners (students, staff, parents/guardians) of Lucan Community College are committed to being an active learning community with sound educational principles, where each person is valued and respected for who they are.

Within a supportive, safe and friendly environment, we foster collaboration and promote equality and tolerance as preparation for life and involvement in society.

As a community, we provide a free and fair education through broad, balanced yet diverse curricular and co-curricular activities endeavouring to meet the needs of all. We encourage commitment through participation, coupled with the promotion of honesty, integrity, self-discipline and self-worth in everything we do, so that the full potential of all is developed.

Seo ráiteas misin ó na páirtnéirí oideachasúla i gColáiste Phobail Leamhcáin (na mic léinn, an fhoireann, na tuismitheoirí/caomhnóirí). Tá sé d’aidhm againn pobal gníomhach oideachais a chur chun cinn, bunaithe ar sháinluachanna oideachasúla. Cuirimid romhainn chomh maith meas agus urraim a léiriú do gach ball den phobal seo.

Mar ullmhúchán don idirbheartaíocht atá roimh na daltaí sa saol mór lasmuigh den scoil sa todhchaí, cuirimis timpeallacht shábháilte, chairdiúil ar fáil a thabharfas tacaíocht do gach dalta. Tá tuiscint, comhionannas agus comhoibriú mar bhunchlocha de na luachanna gur mhaith linn a chleachtadh agus a fhorbairt.

Mar phobal, cuirimis oideachas saor in aisce ar fáil chomh maith le hoideachas cóir. Déanaimis é seo trí éagsúlacht gníomhaíochtaí curaclaim agus seach-churaclaim a chur ar fail, a fhreastalaíonn ar raon leathan gnéithe d’oideachas iomlán an duine, chun iarracht a dhéanamh freastal ar riachtanais dhifriúla na ndaltaí.

Cothaímis tiomantas trí rannpháirtíocht, i dteannta le cur chun cinn ionracais, macántachta agus féinmheasa i ngach rud a dtugaimid faoi, sa dóigh is go ndéantar freastal ar fhorbairt cách.

ETB ETHOS CORE VALUES

All ETB schools are State, Co-educational and Multi Denominational. ETB Ethos is underpinned by the core values of Excellence in Education, Care, Respect, Equality and Community.

CORE VALUE: CARE

In an ETB school, care is about the welfare, wellbeing, and safety of all members of the school community. It is exemplified in meaningful relationships, connectedness, and empathy, alongside support and solidarity.

CORE VALUE: COMMUNITY

In an ETB school, community encompasses students, staff, parents and the local community. It is about having shared vision, values and purpose, a sense of belonging, and a voice that is listened to. It is exemplified in productive collaboration, positive contributions, and effective communication across all members of the school community.

CORE VALUE: EQUALITY

In an ETB school, equality is about treating all members of the school community equally and recognising and celebrating the diversity of these members. It is exemplified in targeting resources on those who have need, and prioritising a culture of inclusion.

CORE VALUE: EXCELLENCE IN EDUCATION

The ETB school ethos establishes that excellence in education is underpinned by the core values of care, respect, community and equality.

CORE VALUES: MULTI-DENOMINATIONAL

In an ETB school, multi-denominational is about welcoming and celebrating the full range of religions and beliefs in the school community. It is concerned with developing relationships that are respectful and appreciative of such difference, and interactions that embrace, celebrate, and explore such difference.

CORE VALUE: RESPECT

In an ETB school, respect is about upholding the dignity, rights, and recognition of the identity and background of each member of the school community. It is exemplified in relationships between all members of the school community, and decision-making that impacts positively on the rights, feelings, and aspirations of the diversity of people within the school community.
