LUCKY students of Jambin State School had the chance to paint their hand and write their name on a demolition car on Monday.

Mel and Jenny Elliot, the grandparents of Jambin students, Ella and Cohen, brought a demolition derby car at the Crash-A-Rama auction last week and will be donating the profits if they win to Chaplaincy.

The car transported to the school and the students got to work on painting it under the supervision of Chaplain Nigel Krueger.

"They had a ball, it was a bit of fun for them,” Nigel said.

"And they put their name and hand on it so they're looking for it and they will cheer for it, they feel like they own it.”

Not only did a put a big smile on all the children's faces but it also represents the school with Jambin painted on the roof.

"It gives the students something to look forward to as well and represents their school,” Nigel said.

With excitement building around town for the Crash-A-Rama, the Jambin students are now looking forward to it even more.

"I'd say if their parents weren't going to the show already, they will be now,” Nigel said.

"And they will all be cheering them on.”
