Car wash to get kids to Opti-Minds

YEAR 6 students will roll up their sleeves and prepare to wash the neighbourhood’s cars, to help their classmates compete in the Brisbane Opti-Minds competition.

Moore Park State School teacher Deborah Coates said Maddy Giudice, Eliza Didsman, Dylan Harris, Emily Fisher, Atticus Bonney and Meleesa Donoghue would head to Brisbane on October 15 to compete against the state.

To help the students fund the trip, a car wash and sausage sizzle will be held this weekend.

“We are hoping to raise $1000 but if we get above that we will be happy,” Ms Coates said.

The teacher hopes a line-up of cars will greet students on Saturday and Sunday.

“The whole class is working hard and getting behind the team,” she said.

For $5, drivers can take their cars to the Moore Park service station to be washed between 6am and 4pm Saturday and 7am and 1pm Sunday.
