A Very Happy Retirement to Dedicated Teacher Mary Randles

At Millstreet Community School on Thursday, 22nd Oct. 2020 a surprise celebratory event marking the retirement of wonderfully dedicated Teacher, Mary Randles was organised by Principal, Pól Ó Síodhcháin & Staff.   Mary has spent almost four decades as Teacher supreme mainly at Millstreet Community School where she had also been a Student herself.   The joyful occasion took place mainly online where many logged in from their own homes.  Teacher Jennifer O’Donoghue paid a splendid tribute to Mary as did Pól and Barry and Deputy Principal Frances and two Students.  We thank Teacher, Chris Horan for sharing four images recorded in the School showing the presentation of beautiful gifts to Mary including superb Artwork pottery and Painting by Artist Barry Fraser.   Here we share a selection of images from the memorable occasion.   Tap on the pictures to enlarge.   We wish Mary a very Happy and Healthy  Retirement filled with many Blessings.  (S.R.)…….(Chris also shared the following captions to some of the images:  In her final business class; niece Ria Buckley presents a painting by Barry Fraser; Sister in law Marion Buckley, Organiser Mary Fitzgerald and Ria Buckley prepare to surprise Mary; Mary with her LC business class.)

  3. Congratulations to Mary on her retirement and I like to wish her the very best. Having gone to school with Mary, you can imagine her surprise when I turned up at MCS for teacher training a number of years ago, with her as my mentor. I couldn’t have asked for a better person than Mary. She was kind, courteous, and above all, so giving of her time…Long and happy retirement Mary…Well deserved, and hopefully this “young fella” you’ve trained might keep on the Teaching Tradition for another while.
