Carnock Primary School Wins Big Lottery Award

Pupils from Carnock Primary School are among the latest to benefit from a grant from the Big Lottery Fund, through its 2014 Communities micro grants programme.

The school received funding of £407 to purchase equipment for after school clubs in football, netball, basketball and rugby.

Local SNP MSP Bill Walker welcomed the news:

“Congratulations to Headteacher Mrs Mary Bell and to teacher Mrs Rhona Turvey on securing this funding. It’s great to see young people being encouraged to take part in healthy outdoor activity.

“Many groups from the Dunfermline vicinity have won awards from the Big Lottery Fund, with McLean Primary School and 4th Dunfermline Company Boys’ Brigade among recent recipients.

“I would encourage non-profit groups and voluntary organisations to apply. The awards are aimed at supporting participation in sport, art, heritage and community activities, for projects that promote education, the environment and health in local communities.”

Carnock Primary School will use its grant to fund 12 Masterplay trainer rugby balls, High Five netball kit, 101 youth netball drills, 24 SAFA footballs, 4 playground soccerballs, 12 basketballs and team bands.
