A chal­lenge met head on

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

MOSS­MAN State High School cel­e­brated the brav­ery of sev­eral staff and stu­dents to shave their head to raise money for those suf­fer­ing with leukaemia.

Two staff mem­bers, Wendy Fry (school based youth health nurse) and Keith Dick­in­son (man­ual arts teacher) par­tic­i­pated by shav­ing off their lus­cious locks.

They were joined by two stu­dents Keane Trewick (Year 11) and Gra­ham Tin­gay (Year 12).

A big thank you to Danielle Pringle and Freja Nel­sonGarde for do­nat­ing their time.

The brave shavers were joined by eight Year 12 boys who showed their sup­port by wax­ing their legs. Moss­man High has a proud his­tory with the Leukaemia Foun­da­tion, and has one of the few ju­nior leukaemia com­mit­tees in the na­tion.

The stu­dents work hard to pro­mote aware­ness of leukaemia and the money they raise sup­ports fam­i­lies when trav­el­ling for treat­ment. A big con­grat­u­la­tions to all those who sup­ported the event.

HAIR­CUT TIME: Keane Trewick and Gra­ham Tin­gay get their heads shaved.

BRAVE: Teacher Keith Dick­in­son gets his pony tail snipped
