Photographic & Videographic Image Consent Form

Photographs and videos are stimulating forms of media which can motivate and inspire students and staff. Research has shown that using such forms of media in education can help encourage creativity, motivation, as well as improve communication and team-working skills.

Lucan Community College asks that parent(s)/guardian(s) consent to their son/daughter being featured in photographic and videographic promotional material if their son/daughter is under 18 years of age. Where a student/staff is 18 or older, he/she is capable of giving such consent. The form on the link below is requesting that consent be given for each use of photograph or video footage.
