NORTHERN suburb schools will share in $41,000 raised at two City of Wanneroo annual golf events last week.

More than 25 teams played at the staff golf day at Carramar Golf Course on Wednesday and at the corporate golf day at Marangaroo Golf Course on Thursday.

The funds will help develop chaplaincy at Wanneroo Secondary College, Clarkson Community High School, Girrawheen Senior High School, Mindarie Senior College, Yanchep District High School and Butler College.

Mayor Tracey Roberts said chaplaincy programs in public schools supported teenagers and their families.

This event has raised $486,000 since its beginning.
