Holistic Education

In Lucan CNS, we cater for the development of all aspects of the child. In responce to our aim: ‘We simply want each child to be the best they can be”, the school has instigated a variety of non-academic initiatives to help improve the pupils sociability, physical and emotional health and wellbeing. Holistic education refers to the way in which we cater for the needs of the whole child, rather than just their academic needs.

We have achieved great success from these initiatives. We are one of the first primary schools in Dublin to achieve the Health Promotion Award, as an outstanding school for the promotion of health. We have also achieved awards for our Creative-Community week, from the ACAE alliance for Creative Education.
