South Otago sec­ondary schools were amongst the 178 con­tacted by the Movember Foun­da­tion in a bid to have fa­cial hair rules waived so stu­dents could sup­port the na­tional men’s health aware­ness ap­peal. Blue Moun­tain Col­lege prin­ci­pal Lindy Ca­vanagh-Mon­aghan and Toko­mairiro High School prin­ci­pal Gle­nis Sim said the se­niors would be on ex­am­leave when Movember started, there­fore stu­dents wouldn’t be par­tic­i­pat­ing. How­ever, some staff would be tak­ing part. South Otago High School prin­ci­pal Mike Wright said last year a stu­dent re­quested to par­tic­i­pate, and per­mis­sion was granted by the school board on the pro­viso that funds raised went to char­ity and that at the end of the month they were clean shaven again.
