Parents finally got a chance to see the inside of Two Mile School recently after restrictions over the past year and a half prevented them from entering inside the building.

Back to September 2020 schools prepared to reopen in the shadow of the first lockdown and had spent the month of August preparing COVID response plans and putting protocols in place.

The parents of the Junior Infant Class of 2020 waved their children goodbye at the door as the wide eyed youngsters made their way to their new classroom.

"The first day at school is a special day for every parent and the parents of this group had to make do with looking in the window as their little ones settled in," Principal of Two Mile CNS, Catherine Barry, said.

"At the time, this group of parents were promised that they would be invited into the school at the earliest possible opportunity. 2020 gave way to 2021 and still Christmas shows and science fairs were confined to Zoom. When restrictions were lifted recently, the priority was to invite parents who have never seen the inside of the school building in to see where their children have been working for the last year and a half."

It was fitting that this group of parents whose children are now in Senior Infants were the first to be invited, she added.

Moms and dads visited their children in their classroom and looked at all the art and displays. They joined Ms Barry in the hall for a cuppa and some treats.

"Two Mile CNS is lucky to have a very active Parents Association (PA) and we value their work and level of engagement. There is a high level of participation and engagement with meetings. During the time of restrictions the PA kept up contact on Zoom and new members were welcomed. There is no substitute, however for in-person meetings, and we hope that this will be the first of many."

Needless to say we all know what cellulite looks like, but there are many ways to reduce its appearance and help us look and feel better about it.

Yes, people often assume it’s down to a weight issue but it is associated with diet and exercise. It can affect all ages, male and female. There are many ways to help reduce and eliminate it.

Nothing can substitute for eating a healthy diet and getting enough exercise. Just as with other signs of ageing, cellulite is best managed first and foremost by focusing on maintaining a healthy weight long term. But certain topical treatments may help it become less noticeable and improve skin’s overall appearance, if used regularly. Dry body brushing is one technique to try by brushing upwards every day towards the heart for increased blood circulation.

Using anti-cellulite products can help if you are doing regular exercise and watching your diet, but if you feel you need a boost to get you headed in the right direction, there is a few different salon treatments that can be of benefit.

The Universal Contour Body Wrap is a great treatment which results in inch loss due to the detoxing effect of the sea clay or also the Electro Cellulite Massage rollers (ECM) by CACI Machine, which is a 12-session course over four weeks, this is recommended for desired results.

Pilates is always an amazing lifestyle choice. Having the toning tables for the past 30 years in Killarney, we are lucky to hear the amazing results from our clients past and present. Some have even been with us since we started! The male and female reviews have reported reduced cellulite with weekly appointments, improved posture, increased energy and mostly reduced cellulite.

Two Kerry-based car dealers are part of a national campaign to provide essential aid for Ukraine.

Donagh Hickey Motors in Rathmore and Adam’s of Tralee are the two local garages that have signed up for the project.

Under the scheme, the garages will be used as collection hubs for essential equipment that will be transported to the war torn country.

“We have a very large and loyal customer base and we are appealing through them to make donations,” Adam’s of Tralee General Manager, Marcus O’Shea, told the Killarney Advertiser.

“Any dealer could have signed up for this but we are one of only two in Kerry to do so.”

The garages, following advice from humanitarian agencies in Ukraine, have created a very specific list of what is urgently needed out there.

These include generators, solar battery chargers, batteries, power banks, flashlights, drones and tablets.

Medical equipment like First Aid kits (NATO standard) and other medical items are also sought.

People can assist by either dropping goods to the two garages or by making a donation via www.safeharbourforukraine.org.
