The money will also allow the school to buy new equipment for the children and the local pre-school to use during breaks and for after school activities.

Meanwhile, St John’s Parent Teacher Association in Carnlough was awarded £9661 to provide 27 iPads and accessories for use out of class time.

The group supports families, pupils and the wider community at St John’s Primary School in Carnlough.
