Clippers, wax pot go to work
GROANS and howls of pain were heard throughout Warwick State High School yesterday as students were stripped of hair and raise money.
Year 12 student Mark Ferdinand gritted his teeth as a beautician from Isis Beauty and Day Spa waxed his hairy legs smooth to support the Leukaemia Foundation World’s Greatest Shave.
“It was for a great cause ... I’m feeling really sore now,” Mark said.
Community Service Committee leader Shanarah O’Leary said students aimed to beat the $2600 raised last year and they blitzed this target with $3506 to help Leukaemia patients and their families.
Warwick High got into the spirit with six students loosing their locks – Melanie Jamieson, Ashleigh McArthur, Annika Berghofer, Hannah Hoffman, Mitch Barling and Jake Reid.
Teacher Sandy Brown and the special education unit taxi driver Adam Cole also stepped up to the barber’s chair where Hair Kreations hairdressers worked their magic.
