We truly value parental involvement in Lucan East ETNS. Our school is a community where pupils, parents and teachers collaborate and work in partnership for our children. This year alone, over 60 parents helped out with the parental involvement activities in the classroom, which shows how committed and dedicated they are to the school. We would like to thank all of these volunteers. Their time and efforts are really appreciated by all the staff at Lucan East. They enable us to provide positive and optimum learning experiences for our students.

If you would like to get involved in any classes, help out with PTA events or volunteer with the parental involvement activities next year, please get in touch with Sinead. Email sinead@lucaneastet.ie or phone/text 0861701972.

I hope you all enjoy the summer holidays. Bain sult as!
