Parents enjoy first visit to Two Mile School

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."

The pupils and staff of Two Mile Community National School were delighted to welcome Mr Norio Maruyama,  the Japanese Ambassador to Ireland on Tuesday.

The Ambassador was at the school to promote the teaching of the Japanese language and culture through the ‘Say Yes to Languages’ programme.

“The pupils in Two Mile were very interested to listen to stories about Japan and to learn about the links between our two countries,” said school principal Catherine Barry.
“As a multi-denominational school, we are very open to different languages and cultures and we look forward to working with the Japanese embassy from next September.”
Two Mile Community National School is the only multi-denominational school in the Killarney school district.
