Victory for first year basketball

IMG_6602The first year boys basketball team headed to Greenhills Commuity College in Tallaght on the 5th of February. Their first game was against Kishoge CC. After an impressive display in the first 2 quarters, the boys had built up a commanding lead. Kishoge came out strong in the third quarter with 6 unanswered points. Fortunately for the boys, they upped the tempo in the final quarter and came away with a 18-9 victory.

The second game was against the hosts Greenhills Community College. This was a commanding performance from the start. The quality of the play increased despite only a short break after the first game. Luttrellstown came out winners with a 30-17 score line. They all had a good day and are looking forward to continuing their basketball careers in Luttrellstown Community College.

 
Debating & Public Speaking in LCC
photo_1untitled

Senior students in LCC have excelled in their engagement with debating and public speaking at local, regional and even national levels throughout the current school year. Despite the late evenings in libraries and classrooms in schools across North Dublin, the lunchtimes sacrificed to researching issues and the constant redrafting, the students taking part in the various competitions and tournaments enjoy every minute.

Partaking in debating and public speaking at any level is proven to enhance verbal intelligence and oral skills. In addition to this, participants develop their leadership qualities, learn to work as a genuine team and become better all-round communicators.

Phase 2 Build

school_imageDea Nuacht/ good news....

 

A chairde,

Thanks to the support of the Tánaiste Joan Burton and Minister for Education and Skills Jan O Sullivan we received a letter of permission to proceed to Stage 2A of our phase two building.

 

This was very good news as Phase 2 includes additional accommodation for 350 students and even more importantly, as our college grows, it includes the Enhanced Sports facility.

 

We hope to have a completion date of August 2017 for this phase if all goes well for us through planning etc

Mile buíochas to all parents, staff and students who have helped us get to this stage.

Formula 1 Competition

DSCF6140.RAF

This year luttrellstown is sending a team of six members to compete in the F1 in schools competition, we hope to qualify for national stages by entering in the regional competition. The competition mainly revolves around designing and manufacturing a model formula one car using CAD/CAM(SolidWorks/AutoCAD) software which allows them create super-detailed 3-D models of their car. Using these designs a rough model of the car is manufactured on a CNC miller(It carves wood) and then hand cut by the team to match their exact specs. Other tasks include: Acquiring materials to construct the car e.g. Bearings for axles and Balsa wood. Racing the car on a 20m track in around 1-1.5 seconds using a Co2 cartridge. Creating a team pit display stand to showcase the team and car. Designing and making a team uniform that is unique to them. Manufacturing team merchandise that they can sell there. Making a team website to present the team to the world. The team's name is Karrotica. Members include members of Iron Fists who won the ITB mini F1 race and members from Arrow Racing, who, in the previously qualified for nationals in the junior category.

BT young scientist 2015

 

This years BT Young Scientist and technology exhibition was the biggest yet in terms of entries and visitors with over 1200 students competing and 40000 visitors over the course of the four day exhibition. The Young Scientist and technology exhibition is one of the biggest science and technology fairs in Ireland and has been taking place in the RDS for the past 51 years attracting thousands of visitors each year.

 

This year our school, Luttrellstown Community College, had a team of seniors competing in the exhibitIon. Aron Hoffmann, Akhil Voorakkara, and Annraoi Campbell entered with the project titled 'Smart traffic'. The project is about the system that would be required to be put in place once we start to see self driving cars on the roads in the hands of ordinary people. The students created the system using already present technologies and presented their findings to the judges.  The students were also working on a model of their system and managed to create a 3D-printed self driving car for the exhibition.

 

Unfortunately we were unable to come away with any prizes, although, the students have been invited to present their project to employees at Intel Ireland in the coming weeks. The 3 students also plan to continue with the project, improve it, and enter it into the SciFest competition later in the year. Overall the students have had a great experience at the exhibition and definitely plan on returning next year with more ideas.
