Stu­dent goes bald for a cure


Kalamunda Reporter - - Front Page -

MORE than 30 Guild­ford Gram­mar school stu­dents are now bald af­ter tak­ing part in the World’s Great­est Shave last week at a spe­cial as­sem­bly.

The school raised more than $20,000, with mem­bers of the 200 club who raised at least a cou­ple of hun­dred dol­lars shav­ing their heads for the cause.

A Guild­ford Gram­mar spokes­woman said there were 31 boys who had their heads shaved and two girls who coloured their hair as part of the Crazy Hair Day fundraiser for the Leukaemia Foun­da­tion.

“We also had two staff mem­bers in­volved – our se­nior chap­lain Fr Philip Ray­mont had a beard trim and Mrs Budler, a Year 2 teacher, had her head shaved,” she said.

“Over the past 12 years we have raised over $108,570 to help find a cure and pro­vide sup­port for peo­ple with leukaemia.”

The stu­dents raised the money in a va­ri­ety of ways.

They per­formed chores around the house and did favours and small tasks for neigh­bours and their im­me­di­ate com­mu­nity.

Spon­sor­ships also came from fam­i­lies, friends and par­ents’ work­places and do­na­tions from the stu­dents’ own sav­ings/pocket money.
