Students shave, colour for a cure
STUDENTS embraced all the colours of the rainbow as they decorated heads to support the Leukaemia Foundation.
Assumption College Year 12 student Anthony McVeigh, deputy principal Craig Frattini and teacher Stuart Borrows all lost their locks as they braved the shave where their school made a great contribution to the foundation fundraiser.
“The big day to shave is here,” Anthony announced to the school assembly.
“I am really happy to announce I have raised $586.50.”
“I would like to thank Mr Frattini and Mr Borrows for joining me to have my hair shaved.”
When combined with other school efforts of free dress day donations and students changing the shade of their hair, the school raised a total of $675, beating its $500 target.
“I feel relieved and a big thanks to everyone who was willing enough to do it,” Anthony told the Daily News after the shave.
He was prepared with a beanie but wasn’t quick enough to escape the coloured spray reaching his newly bald head.
The students bought tickets to try and be the lucky name drawn from the hat to be in control of the razor on Craig Frattini’s head.
Year 11 student Natalie McKay and Year 12 student Jade Fribance won the honour and got their deputy principal into the spirit of the event, plastering his bald head with colours.
“This school is really good at supporting any sort of charity,” Mr Frattini said.
“For a small school, it is always ready to be a part of it.”
