CONFIRMATION that Two Mile National School in Killarney is to reopen as a community national school this September has been welcomed.

The school did not open last September and has been empty since then, said Kerry Fine Gael TD Brendan Griffin.

In January of this year, Deputy Griffin organised a meeting between local people and officials from Kerry Education and Training Board (Kerry ETB) to explore the prospect of the school becoming a Community National School. Arising from this exploratory meeting, a wider consultative meeting was organised by the local community, where Deputy Griffin was called upon to formally witness the unanimous support in the community for the community school proposal. “Since then, formal efforts have been ongoing to finalise the process of re-opening the school and I have been liaising closely with the local community, Minister for Education and Kerry ETB,” said Deputy Griffin.

"I am delighted that this day has come, after many months of hard work by the local community, Kerry ETB and the Bishop of Kerry.

"I am glad to have played my part in ensuring that this fine school will re-open in September to serve the needs of the local and wider community. I want to pay tribute to everybody involved in this effort and it is great to have such a positive outcome."

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.
