Camcloon NS is a rural, three teacher school based in Ballydangan, Co Roscommon which currently facilitates 59 students.
As many locals may be aware, a new extension to the school is now nearing completion. This will provide the school with an additional mainstream classroom, a special education classroom and a wheelchair accessible WC. As a result of this new extension, the existing playground has been significantly reduced.
Camcloon NS Parents Association have been fundraising to build a new play area which will consist of a concrete play area, an Astroturf pitch, a new boundary fence, a bicycle rack and canopy and a biodiversity and sensory space.
As a way to raise funds the Parents Association have decided to host a concert with the hugely popular Brendan Shine in the Shearwater Hotel, Ballinasloe. This will take place on Thursday July 28 at 8pm.
Damien Cunniffe Chairperson of the PA stated: “We are extremely thankful to the kind and generous support from people to date through our ‘Buy-a-Block’ campaign and donations from many local individuals and businesses. We must continue in our fundraising efforts to ensure completion of the project. We hope this will be a huge success and look forward to seeing lots of friends and supporters of Camcloon N.S. there on the night!”
