JOONDALUP Primary School and its education support centre are hoping to use its location as a Federal Election polling booth to raise funds for students and facilities.

In keeping with polling tradition, the volunteer-run P&C committee will fire up the barbecue for a sausage sizzle and will also offer bacon and egg rolls and handmade sweets at its cake stall.

P&C president Tanya Belsham said they were “so grateful” for the support from Candlewood Village shop owners who “jumped at the chance to help the school”, including IGA and First National Real Estate Patience.

Pizza Hut, Cellarbrations, Diamond Beauty, Be Dazzle Beauty, The Linen Gallery and Jo’s for Hair have also donated prizes for a raffle to be sold on the day.

The Moore electorate polling booth will open at the Blue Mountain Drive schools from 8am on Saturday.
