Randalstown Central Primary School have received a £300 community grant from Power NI, Northern Ireland’s leading energy supplier.

The county Antrim primary school was nominated to receive the community funding by Power NI employee, Esther McKane whose mother Janet teaches at the school.  This was part of the company’s staff sponsorship scheme ‘Helping Hands’, which gives staff the opportunity to put forward local groups and organisations for funding. Thanks to the donation, the school was able to purchase new outdoor play equipment.

Randalstown Central Primary School is a school that champions itself on working in partnership with parents to ensure a safe, friendly environment, while focusing on skills which allow pupils to reach their full potential.

Power NI is delighted to support Randalstown Central Primary School by providing funding for outdoor play equipment and storage. The equipment includes numeracy and literacy equipment which will be invaluable to the children’s outdoor play/learning.

Grateful for the funding, Power NI employee Esther McKane commented:

“I am very proud and thankful to be able to give back to my local community and my old Primary School through the generous funding from Power NI! I know how much the school and the children will benefit from this £300.”

Senior teacher at Randalstown Central Primary School, Janet McKane commented:

The £300 funding from Power NI has enabled us to really enhance our outdoor play provisions. It has allowed us to provide a safer environment for learning outdoors during the pandemic, which is vital for the children. We really appreciate the generous contribution from Power NI, which has really helped the school with much needed resources and will hugely benefit our pupils.”
