Only two days left to the closing date for students to enrol in our school. It got me thinking about what you might say to somebody who was thinking about coming to Lanesboro Community College…how you might convince them. Well we can start with the facts…
Over the last five years Lanesboro Community College has been one of the top schools in the region for progression onto third level, according to data from the Irish Times.
Lanesboro Community College is the top school in Co. Longford for both the number of students participating and the number of awards won at the BT Young Scientist Exhibition and Scifest.
Our school has received recognition at national for the excellence of teaching and learning right across the curriculum.
Many of our past pupils have gone on to achieve international acclaim, most recently a renowned young artist who featured in the Sunday Independent.
Our school participates and excels in extra-curricular activities from chess to fishing that means that every single student will get the opportunity to represent their school and learn outside of the classroom.
We have a dedicated care team including a full time Chaplin and HSCL who work tirelessly to ensure that our school is a safe and happy place for us all.
These are just some of the facts about our school. I know if I asked past-pupils, parents, teachers and students, they would all have their own great stories about this place.
This is your school…be proud of it and the part you play in the story of Lanesboro Community College.

Now for a few notices:
- We are all getting better at logging in for roll call and there are good reports coming back about student engagement.
- This is online school, so school rules apply and any disruption will be reported to parents/guardians.
- Students who disrupt a class will not be allowed back to that class until they have undertaken to improve their behaviour.
- We can see that there are some students who are not engaging with online schooling. Members of staff are contacting you so please respond. You are obliged to attend school and know that each day or part of a day you miss is being recorded. If you miss over 20 days we have to report this to Tusla.
- Well done to the majority of students who are giving 100% and engaging online with their teachers. Keep up the good work.
- School reports will be out by the end of the week…well done to everybody.
Remember if you have any issue or concern please email us immediately or speak to your parents about it so that we can get it sorted.
And now we will take a moment to read Ms Keenan’s reflection for this morning…
I believe every person has within themselves inexhaustible reserves of potential they have never even come close to realizing.
I believe each person has far more intelligence than they have ever used.
I believe each person is more creative than he or she has ever imagined.
I believe the greatest achievements of your life lie ahead of you.
I believe the happiest moments of your life are yet to come.
I believe the greatest successes you will ever attain are still waiting for you on the road ahead.
And, I believe through learning and application of what you learn, you can solve any problem, overcome any obstacle and achieve any goal that you can set for yourself.
