Carcoola students get busy washing cars to raise funds for camp

Carcoola Primary School’s year five and six students will have their squeegees out and their soap buckets at the ready when they hold their annual car wash to raise funds for their camp and graduation events this Saturday.

The fundraising drive eases financial pressure on both the school and parents, having raised more than $3000 over the past three years.

Teacher Sharon Hunt said it had become a notable event for the school, and went a long way to securing much-needed funds.

“It is incredible the amount of support we receive each year,” she said.

“This year Alcoa, Pinjarra Golf Club, Lucky Charm and Muffin Break have joined in their support us for the event and without the support of these generous people we could not hold this event.

“It makes sure all children can afford the camp and graduation events and attend them.”

The students will be washing cars and handing out tea, coffee and cakes on the day along with holding a sausage sizzle.

There will also be raffles and a lucky dip for children.

Look out for the students on Pinjarra Road, at the Murray Shire offices this Saturday from 9am to 2pm.

The car wash will cost $15.
