Class 5 Car Wash for Charity!
Class 5 got to work this week with their buckets, sponges, soapy water, fluorescent vests and wellies in a great display of compassion and kindness towards others as they treated a parents and staff to a clean car and a nice cup of tea in a special charity car wash in aid of the East Africa Food Crisis Appeal.
In ideal bright and breezy weather conditions on a pleasant Friday afternoon, the Key Stage 2 forecourt was turned into a temporary forecourt as vehicle after vehicle rolled in past the school gates, with even a reserve line of cars having to be formed due to the sheer volume of drivers who were keen for their automobiles to be given the five-star Class 5 sponge treatment!
The clients were also very glad of the special cafe set up in the classroom by Class 5's very able waitresses as they enjoyed some of the finest teas and cakes while they waited for their vehicles to sparkle again!
The final count of vehicles successfully valeted during the two hour servicing period was a very impressive twenty, and an absolutely fantastic £211 was raised in the end for the East Africa Appeal.
A huge well done to Class 5 who were very sensible, extremely organized and showed great professionalism as well in even reading and understanding a risk assessment designed for adults in order to ensure the safety of themselves, other children and visitors to the car wash service.
Thank you also to Mr. Thompson and Mrs. Lane for helping the class to independently organize this charitable event, to Miss Cooke for her help in the catering department and to Mr. Smith for assisting with manning the gates and the forecourt on the day.
